Dental technicians are especially at risk. According to statistics by the BGFE (German Occupational Society for Precision and Electrical Engineering), occupational skin and lung diseases are considerably more prevalent among dental technicians than the BGFE average. Fine airborne particles are especially dangerous. Highly detrimental effects on the skin and respiratory organs have also been identified for dental gypsum and investment materials. The same is true of non-classified particles with general exposure limits.
Occupational health and safety are non-negotiable
If dental laboratories fail to use suction, most dust that is generated will clearly exceed occupational
exposure limits. Suction to eliminate dusts is invariably required by German regulations governing the use of hazardous
substances. Furthermore, all vacuum systems must be mandatorily tested for effectiveness at least once
We support you with our experience
Dust exposure can be dramatically reduced by the use of optimized funnel systems and state-of-the-art vacuum
equipment. Vacuum systems are particularly effective if they convey exhaust air to the outside of the building. This will also improve the indoor climate throughout the laboratory. Zubler offers a number of vacuum options, so you can always select a solution that is optimized for the needs of your laboratory.

Central Suction System FZ VARIOThe FZ VARIO central vacuum system with its accessory vacuum funnels is a solution without compromise. With its efficient vacuum motors and filtering systems, available in different output classes and combinations, the Zubler® central vacuum systems are suitable for providing suction at all handpiece positions and acrylic workbenches, as well as any other dust-producing devices in dental laboratories of any size.
The advantages of a central vacuum system become particularly obvious when all devices and workbenches within the laboratory benefit from central suction. The VARIO system controls the air volume stream, continuously adapting the suction depending on the number of open vacuum positions.
FZ Multiple Station Suction
FZ1 VARIOmaster®is suitable for universal use in laboratories and workshops. A highly flexible concept allows for connection of four vacuum positions, to be controlled through individual modules. Vacuum positions are supplied as requested by the customer. This robust and high-performance suction unit is equally well suited for workspaces and for high-dust laboratory equipment. Laboratories in dental offices, or small-sized dental laboratories including only one or two technicians, may be able to cover their needs for device or workspace suction with a single FZ1 VARIOmaster® unit. Particularly comfortable is its alternative mode of operation, which allows different vacuum power levels to be defined for each position connected. The VARIO control system is simultaneously active, maintaining a constant air volume at all times, regardless of the condition of the filter.
Vibration cleaned filter cartridge
How well a vacuum system performs will depend on the quality of the filter material and on the efficiency of the cleaning function of the filter. In addition to the brushless vacuum motor, the FZ1 VARIOmaster® utilizes a highly sophisticated filter technology. The filters are arranged such that they can vibrate freely inside the housing. High-grade vibration equipment creates extremely powerful vibration, thus ensuring that dust layers are eliminated from the filter surface time after time.
Automatic vacuum port openers
AP501 modules will allow the FZ1 VARIOmaster® to be configured for up to 4 vacuum positions. Each AP501 offers connectivity for any universal controllers or laboratory equipment with up to 500W of power consumption. Its electronic control offers sensitivity adjustment to match the connected (dust-generating) equipment, switches the vacuum position valve, and connects to the suction unit via a control cable. Both the valve and the control unit are always located at the workspace. This makes installation very easy and transparent. Several vacuum positions can be connected to the same pipeline.
FZ2 VARIOmatic®FZ 2 VARIOmatic® is a four-position vacuum system. In special situations, it can be adapted to serve six positions. This unit was designed specifically for use in dental laboratories, offering a particularly reliable and clean vacuum solution even for positions where copious amounts of dust are generated, such as belt sanders. This vacuum system fulfills the needs of an entire smaller dental laboratory. When a handpiece or other connected tool is activated, the vacuum position opens automatically, closing a few seconds after the tool is turned off in order to remove the residual dust.
The dust from all connected vacuum positions is collected in a container, without filter bags. This greatly reduces operating costs compared to vacuum systems using filter bags, especially in areas where large amounts of dust are generated.

For low-dust applications, they can also be used with manually controlled or automated milling devices (e.g. for zirconia objects). Appropriate suction units can also be selected for any works- hop or laboratory applications involving dry dusts. Applications of this type may include various modes of processing minerals, resins or metals in different sectors of industry.
Maintenance Information for V4000 and V6000 series motors
Vacuum funnels R1200 / R1250The Zubler R1200, R1250, and R1251 vacuum funnels ensure a maximum of dust removal. A gold trap filter is available for the R1250 and R1251 models, allowing separate filtering for precious metals.
The funnels are compatible with the R1000 fixed rectangular suction pipes and the R1300 telescoping suction pipe.
Vacuum hood R1500The R1500 vacuum hood with its flexible arm can be placed in any position where dust is generated. It is particularly suitable for removing toxic fumes during investing and divesting.
Monomer bath R1600Integrating the R1600 monomer bath in the workbench top creates a comfortable stationary position for mixing acrylics.
The mobile version, R1601, can be moved between working positions by simply inserting it into the existing R1000 or R1300 rectangular suction pipe instead of the vacuum funnel.
Cleaning set RS 1/2Vacuum sockets connected to the central vacuum system can be installed anywhere in the dental laboratory. Using the appropriate cleaning accessories, floor and workbench surfaces can be cleaned quickly and easily.
R1700 SprayBoxGreat add on for digital techs. Hooks up directly to central suction or personal suction systems, designed to collect aerosol or other sprays.
AV1000 Dust BoxA laboratory that strives for economic success in all its operations must keep a close eye on both quality and quantity. Usually this begins right in the preparatory stage for each process, where the foundation is laid for any top-quality work. This is why the design of the Zubler® dust preparation box emphasizes ergonomics, cleanliness and efficiency.
An integrated nozzle actuated by a foot switch allows the blowing off of casts directly in the box.
The protective screen and the working block swivel upward and out of the way. Once the vacuum funnel is removed, the collecting tray is easy to take out and clean.
