DAV II Turbo+ DentAirVac will be exhibiting their “At Source” Oral Aerosol Vacuums at the upcoming IAOMT Boston meeting, September 13th - 14th, 2019. Our newest DAV VII Turbo+ includes a Variable Speed Fan Motor Controller for reduced decibel levels while using as a whole room air purifier, a fully sealed Pre/HEPA/Charcoal Filter Pack for easier maintenance and a Patent Pending 4” – 3” – 5.5” five foot long Intake Hose Assembly designed to increase air intake cfm while maintaining higher velocities similar to that of the 3” – 5.5” standard DAV intake hose. All DAV V and newer are upgradable to the DAV VII Turbo+.
