Many offices are having us install new SolmeteX Amalgam separators. These separators work exceptionally well. They do have one weakness though. Vacuum line cleaners that have a pH less than 4 can cause the Kylex inside of the filter cartridge to plug up. If you have any question whether you are using an acceptable vacuum line enzymatic cleaner with your new Amalgam separator or not, please refer to this list of acceptable line cleaners.
