Maintenance Free Handpieces
Some handpieces are maintenance free, or Lube Free®, meaning the bearings do not require routine lubrication. However, the push button chuck mechanism is made up of tiny, moving, metal parts that do need cleaning and lubrication to ensure safe performance, and extend the life of the chuck mechanism.
According to StarDental® it is necessary to clean the turbine autochuck once a week.
Here at Dairyland Handpiece we recommend the following steps and care for your maintenance free handpieces:
Place a drop of oil on the end of a proxy brush, or in the chuck opening
Insert the proxy brush into the chuck opening.
Slide the brush in and out several times to loosen and remove any accumulated buildup.
Spray air from your syringe into the chuck to expel any loose material.
If you have any questions about the care for your maintenance free handpieces please feel free to contact Dairyland Handpiece. We’d be happy to answer any questions you might have.
