FAQ

 

What size BioFree® bottle is available?

BioFree® bottles are available in 0.7 and 2 liter sizes.

What is the life of the bottle?

While there is not an expiration date on the bottle, Sterisil® recommends changing the bottle out annually due to normal wear to the thread on the top of the bottle.

My bottle does not seem to have a tight seal.

It is very likely that the threads on your bottle have been stripped, requiring a new bottle.

What is BioFree® tubing?

This is tubing that has been physically embedded with silver ions. Many Dental Unit manufacturers now install BioFree® tubing as a standard item on their units. Check with your rep to ensure your new dental unit is fitted with Sterisil® BioFree® tubing. Existing units in your office may easily be updated with BioFree® tubing. Have your Sales representative contact their service department to update your dental units.

Am I required to use Citrisil™ or other Sterisil® products to maintain the tubing?

BioFree® tubing can remain effective for several years without maintenance; however it must be regularly maintained with a Sterisil® water line treatment product to maintain the silver ions. When properly maintained, the BioFree® tubing will remain effective for the normal life of the dental unit.

Do I need have to have BioFree® tubing for Citrisil™ or other Sterisil® products to work?

No, Citrisil™ and all Sterisil® products do not require that they be used exclusively with BioFree® tubing. Sterisil® products are efficient water line cleaners on regular tubing; however performance is increased when used in conjunction with BioFree® tubing.
