How Antifoaming Disinfectant Tablets Work around the Clock to Keep Your Practice Safe

How Antifoaming Disinfectant Tablets work around the clock to keep your practice safe

As dental care professionals, it is important to understand the full capabilities of your disinfectant product to ensure not only the health of your equipment, but also for infection control, and for the safety of staff and patients.

In addition to our Magnolia PULI-JET Gentle 2.0 non-foaming dental suction disinfectant, we also offer a complementary disinfectant and anti-foaming product to manage dental procedures that have the potential of producing a lot of foam: Magnolia Antifoaming Disinfectant Tablets.


The Magnolia Antifoaming Disinfectant Tablets service two main purposes.

1. Foam management from certain dental procedures; and

2. continuous disinfection of the suction lines and system.


Foam management

The function of Antifoaming Disinfectant Tablets is to manage the foam that can occur through certain dental procedures. For example, surgical treatments that have a large amount of dense liquids such as blood, mucus and thick saliva need to be thinned down, as thick liquids in the centrifuge tend to cause foaming. Because foam is full of air, it cannot be separated inside the centrifugal separator, hence can potentially be pulled into the suction motors (especially in suction systems that don’t have built-in protection measures to manage this). This poses a risk of damaging the suction motor which is designed to always remain dry. The Antifoaming Disinfectant Tablets helps the liquids thin down prior to entering the centrifuge, significantly reducing the likelihood of generating foam.


Continuous slow-release disinfection

The second action of our slow-release Anti-foaming Disinfectant Tablets is to significantly reduce the microbial load by continuously disinfecting the suction lines throughout the entire working day. With the dental team performing regular cleaning duties on equipment such as filters and amalgam cups, this is an added layer of protection to safeguard the ongoing health and wellbeing of end-users.

To find out more about disinfectant solutions that are suitable for your equipment, speak to your supplier or technical team. This will ensure we help you keep your suction system disinfected and operating at its best.
