* Flow rate is important when deciding on the appropriate amalgam separator for your office. Flow rate is addressed in Question 11 (Is flow rate important for an amalgam separator?) on the "Recycling of Mercury By Dentists FAQ" webpage.
** Dental facility must decant the liquid in the canister(s). Canister(s) may be reused or replaced. If a dental facility chooses to reuse the canister and empties the waste sludge from the canister into a collection container, the waste sludge MUST NOT be stored at the dental facility for more than one year from the date the sludge was placed in the collection container. If the dental facility replaces a used canister with a new canister, the used canister is no longer considered part of the separator equipment system and is subject to the one year storage limitation requirement. A canister which is NOT removed from the separator equipment system is considered a part of the system and does NOT fall under the one year storage limitation requirement.
