The SafeAir - Heatstream is a flame free heating source for prosthodontic modelling & fitting work.

Greatly reduces the risks from using naked flame heating source.

The widespread use by dental clinicians of latex, vinyl and neoprene gloves to prevent cross infection of hepatitis B, HIV, CJD, and other blood and body fluid borne pathogens brings with it an additional hazard.

All three of these glove types ignite easily from a source of naked flame such as gas or spirit burners and will adhere firmly to the skin whilst burning.*

Professor Ian M. Brook and his colleagues at Sheffield University School of Clinical Dentistry, were so concerned at the scale of this hazard that they suggested development of a flame free heating device, and so over 30 years ago the first SafeAir was born.

The result is the all new SafeAir - Heatstream which comes complete with a safety interlocked drip tray which provides an easily cleaned and well defined working zone in front of the SafeAir.

A bright red light illuminates the hot zone where modelling tools can be brought to working temperature in 8 to 10 seconds and where wax sheets and forms can be easily and controllably softened to melting point or melted.

The illuminated power switch shows when the Heatstream is on and the red hot zone highlighter indicates the optimum working zone. A safety interlocked drip-tray defines a clear working area in front of the hot air blower and an easily cleaned stainless steel liner minimises mess.

The SafeAir - Heatstream has a very low thermal mass, so heats and cools rapidly and can be easily and safely carried on domiciliary visits in its storage case. Thus avoiding carrying gas canisters in vehicles and use of open flame heat sources in uncontrolled domestic environments.
