The current trend in Suction pumps is “semi wet”, with amalgam separation built in as the norm, to comply with (mercury)  waste disposal environmental regulations affecting dental surgeries.

The older style pumps still in use in many clinics do not have this amalgam separation option, which is available from various manufacturers and can be retrofitted. Of course not all surgeries need amalgam separation, for instance hygienist or orthodontist clinics. 

Manufacturers recommend that these semi wet pumps are fitted within approx. 5 Metres of the chairside, with a gradual fall in the waste pipe, from the pump to the external drain, so that the pumps do not “sit” in constant water..

To comply with the regulations, spitoon valves are now also required to combine spitoon & suction waste, down 1 pipe, all of which then must go to the pump with amalgam / mercury separation. These must be fitted within your  existing spitoon or floor box.
