CPAC_CoxRapidHeatSterilizerCPAC Environmental Solutions, Leicester, NY, is offering its COX RapidHeat Sterilizers, which provide FDA-cleared rapid cycles. Relying on rapid air flow in a controlled heated environment to sterilize instruments, the COX RapidHeat Sterilizer can sterilize instruments in as little as 6 minutes for unwrapped instruments and 8 minutes for unwrapped handpieces, according to the company.

Wrapped instruments and handpieces are FDA cleared for 12 minutes.

The COX RapidHeat Sterilizer does not require water, steam, or toxic chemicals for processing. The lack of these elements reduces corrosion, pitting, or dulling of dental instruments, according to the company.

The system is available with a 3-year warranty.
