Installation Manual

Best Management Practices

Anterior Quest requires dental office staff to check the clear site tubes on both the top and bottom tank weekly. These site tubes help indicate the fullness of each tank and alert us to any issues of overflow. If there is any fluid in either site tube we request that the office call 1-877-750-4347 and inform Technical Support of the fullness level. At that time Anterior Quest will work with the office to resolve the issue.

Calculation Chart

The calculation we use, to determine the size of the system to install, is based on the number of operational chairs and the amount of cleaning solution used to clean each chair's suction line. This is not a one size fits all amalgam separator. The HG Containment System is manufactured in different sizes specifically for your office needs.

The amalgam waste is calculated in gallons for a 60 day period with the dental office being open 5 days per week.
