Sterisil Ac series offers simple, customized water purification for autoclaves and washers.

Sterisil AcWSterisil developed its need-specific Ac family of water purification products based on feedback from dentists and dental industry workers. Their overwhelming message: they needed a simpler solution to deliver purified water for use with tabletop autoclaves and instrument washers. Dentists found that other distillers on the market were bulky, difficult to maintain, and had limited daily capacity.

Recognizing the need for consistent, on-demand water for tabletop autoclaves and instrument washers, Sterisil designed each Ac product to minimize maintenance time while reliably producing distilled quality water at an economical price.

Simplicity Rules

The Sterisil Ac series is designed to eliminate guesswork. Each product incorporates both audible and visual alarms, alerting users when the unit requires maintenance, what to do when it does, and when the product is ready to deliver autoclave water that contains zero parts per million total dissolved solids (0 ppm TDS). The simple cartridge replacement procedure eliminates the need for disconnecting tubing and mopping up water spills. The Sterisil Ac series is equipped with automatic shut-off valves for each cartridge. Twist off the used cartridge and then twist on the new one without tools.

One Size Does Not Fit All

The Sterisil Ac series is specifically designed for use in dental practices. Sterisil realized that not all dental practices are the same, so they developed 3 systems?Sterisil Ac, Sterisil Ac+, and Sterisil AcW?to provide a custom solution that fits the needs of individual practices. Having 3 engineered options allows for optimum water production capacity while minimizing the cost per gallon.

Sterisil Ac is designed to quickly produce distilled quality water in areas with low to moderate levels of total dissolved solids (TDS) in the municipal water. Compact in design, each product can fit easily under any sink, eliminating the need for carrying and storing large jugs of distilled water. It offers aof tabletop autoclaves.

With 10 times the filter life of Sterisil Ac, Sterisil Ac+ is designed for use in areas with moderate to high levels of TDS in the municipal water. Producing up to 50 gallons of distilled quality water per day, Sterisil Ac+ offers the simplicity and convenience of Sterisil Ac and also includes class B ultraviolet irradiation to pretreat dental water. For the busy dental practice requiring autoclave water with absolute minimal maintenance time, Sterisil Ac+ offers a hassle-free solution.

For practices with high-efficiency instrument washers, Sterisil AcW offers all of the convenience of Sterisil Ac+ and is the most efficient and flexible of the Ac family. Sterisil AcW produces up to 200 gallons of deionized water per day while purifying it to 0 ppm TDS. With its high capacity, Sterisil AcW can simultaneously supply the dental practice with directly plumbed water to the instrument washer, while additionally fulfilling the dental practice?s tabletop autoclave water needs.
