You May Be Eligible for a Free Solmetex NXT Hg5 Amalgam Separator

Did your practice install a Solmetex Hg5 amalgam separator? Great news—if you are still using that unit, you are eligible for a brand-new, improved Solmetex NXT Hg5 amalgam separator free of charge, along with free shipping! The NXT Hg5 has been redesigned to require less space and provide an easier collection container change-out process.

Here are the advantages of the NXT Hg5:

  • An easy-change collection container that takes 2 minutes or less to swap out.
  • A compact design for a smaller footprint.
  • Versatile floor or wall mount.
  • 100% Recyclable Collection Container.
  • New sealable lid replacing the old plastic shipping sleeve.
  • A two-year warranty.
  • Includes a simple mail-back recycling program for your current collection container.

In the most cases, the installation of the new system is pretty straight-forward, either a plumber or service tech should be able to accomplish readily or some practices even choose to install the new system themselves. Dentists taking advantage of the free change-out offer will be required to enroll in Solmetex’s auto ship program to receive replacement collection containers automatically on the schedule they establish, but at least annually to remain in compliance with state and federal laws. There is no auto ship contract. When it’s time to replace your Hg5 collection container, why not upgrade to a new model for free? Solmetex is offering the free NXT Hg5 upgrade through March. 21, 2020.

Obtaining recycling documentation is quick and easy. Just access the Solmetex Compliance Center on the Solmetex website.

Since 2013, most dental practices on public water and sewer systems in Michigan have been required to have an amalgam separator installed inline between the operatories and the vacuum pump to prevent mercury effluent from contaminating the water supply. The state of Michigan incentivized affected dentists to install amalgam separators by offering a $300 grant, administered by MDA Services, to help offset the cost of purchasing and maintaining the equipment. Now we are helping you swap out your old system for a free new one!
