Covid-19 Equipment Maintenance Recommendations

We are helping to prepare dental practices for re-opening with improved cross-infection measures and servicing equipment to minimise the risk of breakdown.



Eclipse Dental Covid-19 Policy

We are open for essential works to enable our customers to provide emergency treatments. We are also helping to prepare dental practices for re-opening with improved cross-infection measures and servicing equipment to minimise the risk of breakdown.

We are working to the measures set out below:

  • We will try to help you on the phone or by video meeting and only make a visit if we are unable to help remotely
  • We request that if we are asked to visit customer’s premises that they make every reasonable effort to ensure that there is the minimum number of staff present, there is high standard of cleanliness and that there are no staff showing signs of symptoms or have been in contact with those with symptoms
  • Our staff will regularly use hand sanitiser
  • We will maintain social distancing
  • We will not ask for a signature after the work is completed but request your name for the record on the job sheet
  • The safety and health of our staff and our customers is our priority

Covid-19 Maintenance Recommendations

Suction Pumps:

  • Follow your current protocol and run cleaning solution such as Durr MD555 (do not use water) through the spittoon bowl and suction tubes with the suction pump turned on
  • Leave the suction pump turned off
  • Flush through as often as possible – ideally at least once a week to minimise the possibility of seizing up

Air Compressors:

  • Drain the receiver if there is not a dryer built in
  • Switch power off
  • Ideally run the compressor and purge the airline to each surgery once a week

Delivery units:

  • Remove all handpieces
  • Regularly purge each outlet in accordance with your normal protocol, running each outlet for a few minutes
  • Remove the water bottle and tip any residue water away and put the bottle back on empty
  • Run the outlets for 30 seconds with the empty bottle on to dry the lines
  • While flushing to press the syringe buttons in order to release any trapped water and continue to run the flush until the handpiece hoses run dry

Intra-Oral X-Ray Machines:

  • Leave the head facing downwards with a tissue below to catch any oil leaks
