A-Dec launches vacuum-line cleaning innovation
In just three steps and about two minutes, ICV purges vacuum lines with the operator’s cleaner of choice. The system features a simple control panel with indicator lights and tubing hookups.
To operate, staff need only connect the saliva ejector and HVE, then press the Start button.

To improve safety, ICV includes an easy-to-fill supply tank that features a screw-on lid, eliminating splashing or spilling during transportation and reducing the possibility of exposure to chemicals.

“ICV represents a simple, yet innovative improvement in the vacuum-line cleaning process,” said A­dec Product Manager Jeff Spencer. “ICV only takes a couple minutes to use, so the staff can increase efficiency and save time between appointments.”

Headquartered in Newberg, Ore., A­dec is one of the largest dental equipment manufacturers in
the world with a global network of authorized dealers and customers in more than 100 countries. Founded in 1964, A­dec designs, builds, and markets dental chairs, stools, delivery systems, dental lights, cabinetry, and handpieces.
