Elements Free Obturation System is a cordless, batteryoperated version of the original Elements Obturation System. It consists of a Downpack and motorized Backfill unit, utilizes the continuous wave obturation technique and is designed for use with the warm vertical condensation technique. The Downpack heats to 200°C in less than 0.5 seconds and has an adjustable heating range of 100 – 400°C, and extrusion of gutta percha is automated. A 360° one-touch activation/deactivation ring heats the plugger, and cartridges are single use
