Silicone plugs hold instruments in place.

ROCK HILL, South Carolina--KOMET USA has introduced two new stainless-steel bur blocks.

Bur blocks 9931 and 9933L3 were designed for easier cleaning, disinfecting, sterilizing and storing of dental instruments. A KOMET friction grip or contra-angle instruments stored in these bur blocks can be cleaned and disinfected either in an instrument and/or ultrasonic bath (in which case the block must be closed) or in a thermo disinfector (in which case the block must be open).

The sterilization takes place in the autoclave. Due to their blue silicone plugs, the instruments are held tightly in place and cannot fall out.

In refill packs of eight pieces, the silicone plugs are also available in yellow and red. Block 9931 holds up to nine instruments and block 9933L3 holds up to 12 instruments.

For more information about KOMET USA or the 9931/9933L3 Bur Blocks, call (888) 566-3887 or visit KOMET USA.
