STS-6 Dual Stage Dry Vacuum System

Consultants’ Comments

  • “Performed flawlessly with no direct maintenance required – no suction trap to clean.”
  • “Strong suction, no maintenance, not too noisy! Appearance is nice and neat – everything is enclosed.”
  • “I like the automatic washout system that rinses debris from inside of the canister; we used to routinely do it manually.”


STS-6 Dual Stage Dry Vacuum System (Super Turbine Suction) with eight-gallon CAS (Cyclonic Action Separator) is an oil-free and maintenance-free dry vacuum system for the dental office. It has a space-saving design and nickel-plated impeller and housing to reduce oxidation and build-up. It is intended to provide vacuum suction during general examinations and procedures. STS-6 has a high performance two-stage motor and is available in seven different models in either a stacked or side-by-side configuration. The CAS tank will ensure that no liquids or foams enter the vacuum pump. The relief valve is easily accessible on the CAS. The unit requires no regular maintenance. STS units come with a five-year limited, extended warranty. STS-6 was evaluated by eight consultants over a period of six months. It received a 98% rating.

Equipment Features

Consultants reported that STS-6 worked well and consistently with no maintenance required. With multiple hygiene and doctor operatories in use simultaneously, the system provided very good suction. Dental staff appreciated that there was no suction trap to clean. Seventy-five percent of consultants reported that STS-6 was better than their current vacuum system and 25% reported that it was equivalent. Eighty-eight percent would switch to STS-6 and 100% would recommend it.

Clinical Tips

  • Run CleanStream evacuation system cleaner through suction lines at the end of each work day.
