“The Ion Sponge”
Purge-all and Purge-all plus
Maintaining a clean dental porcelain furnace is paramount, when processing today’s fine grain porcelains. For years we have been told to purge our furnaces with carbon, but what exactly are we doing? Unfortunately we have not been very well informed about carbon as a “purge” material.
Carbon comes in various qualities or grades, from the likes of charcoal to the highly activated carbons used in various industries mainly to eliminate contaminates, it is true that if you use a highly activated carbon in your furnace at a low temperature it will absorb silver ions.
We have been taught to take carbon to very high temperatures and this will clean our furnaces. This is not correct, in fact by doing this we actually ash the carbon in the furnace and release Cr, Si, Cd, etc. this is just the opposite of what we want to do.
The need for something better was apparent, especially with the use of all the various metal chemistry we use in today’s dental market.
Purge-all and Purge-all plus is the culmination of almost 2 years of research with Carbon engineers and scientist on vapor phase absorption chemistry. This material is literally an ion sponge; it is highly activated and absorbs specific ions that are shed in the oxidizing process of cast metals.
Purge-all absorbs specifically, Ag, Pb, Cu, and Co.
It comes in the form of granules a brown and white mix.
Purge all-plus absorbs specifically the following ions, Rb, Na, Ba, Mg, Li, Sr, Fe, K, Cd, Ca, Al, Nb, Zn, Hg, Cr, C, and Be. Not that we have all the ions in the metals we use, but we do have several of them. This material too comes in white granules.
These are non-toxic materials and are not reusable. This material will also eliminate odors from your furnace from various materials. For those using Captek or Sinter-Cor this material will absorb carbon from the muffle from the wax elimination process.
These materials are used at a relatively low temperature, around 700 degrees Celsius and the slower the material is cooled the more ions it will absorb.
In today’s complex restorative materials market place we must have clean furnaces to make the most of the porcelains and other materials that we use. Purge-all and Purge-all plus gives us an advantage in that process.

Purge All/ Purge All Plus – 2 stage cleaning for your Dental porcelain furnace
1. Pre-heat, means time it takes to enter the furnace, dry time could
be the term used.
2. Cool time, means the time it takes to come out of the furnace, a slow cool.
3. instructions for use. they are simple.......Place purge-all in
ceramic cup, put on furnace platform, set program to enter furnace in
3 minutes time. Raise temp to 700 degrees C. hold for 5 minutes,
remove from furnace on slow cool, 3 minutes.
4. The furnace muffle will look no different, but the purge all
material will change color, depending on what it is absorbing out of
the furnace, different ions, different colors. This material absorbs
contamination out of the furnace in the form of ions of metals. To
make muffle chamber clean for the processing of ceramics.
5. Purge all is an amorphic material which means that it can absorb
moisture. Keep the jars closed and away from heavy moisture. Best
results are obtained with a 10 min. cool time.
6. Repeat using Purge all Plus
