JUN-AIR Compressors for the Dental Clinic

Sophisticated use of clean and dry compressed air within the dental industry results in an increasing demand for higher quality air compressors. JUN-AIR's extensive range complies with the company's traditional values - low noise level, reliability and long lifetime.

Oil-less Compressors: The oil-less range of air compressors meet the need for oil-free compressed air in the modern dental clinic. The compressors are quiet in operation and are rated for continuous duty. They are virtually maintenance-free with a long life expectancy. The compressor receivers are internally coated to resist corrosion and the compressors are suitable for single and multiple surgeries. The units are available with adsorption dryer to obtain the ultimate air quality.

Oil-less Compressors in Cabinet: The optimum dental solution is the M series where a metal cabinet reduces the noise level by 75%, resulting in a noise level of only 47-55 dB(A). These units are highly suitable for installation in the surgery if required.

Oil-lubricated Compressors: The "original" quiet compressor with a noise level below 45 dB(A). The JUN-AIR oil-lubricated compressor is the lifeline of dental surgeries worldwide, and many units are still in operation after 25 years - a testament to the quality and reliability of JUN-AIR compressors.

Filtration and Dryers: JUN-AIR's range of ancillary equipment includes breathing air filters to remove particles, oil, water, oil odour and vapour from the air line, ensuring that the air to the surgery is of high quality.

The filters will not remove water vapour - this requires an adsorption dryer (option for all oil-less models).

Dry Air: Compressors are used for compression of atmospheric air, which contains a large amount of water vapour. If the compressor is not supplied with an efficient dryer, the major part of this water vapour will condense and will change from the form of vapour into the shape of drops/liquid. This water constitutes ideal conditions for the growth of microorganisms together with the heat naturally generated during compression of the atmospheric air. The JUN-AIR adsorption air dryer is an option for all oil-less compressors, which efficiently removes the water vapour immediately after compression of the air, ensuring that the conditions for the survival of bacteria has been completely eliminated before the compressed air is accumulated in the receiver of the compressor. The compressed air used for instruments, patients and staff is, therefore, 100% dry, clean and without bacteria.
