How DentaPure Began
DentaPure literally uses rocket science developed for NASA to provide clean dental unit waterlines. The technology developed for NASA was used to ensure water consumed in space is free of bacteria, viruses and any other harmful organisms. In 1992, the troops in Desert Storm used the iodinated resin technology to purify water in Iraq. Barry Hammarback, the DentaPure CEO, and his partners realized that the technology could be adapted for use in purifying water in a dental setting thus DentaPure was created.
As water passes through the DentaPure cartridge the atomic isotopes from the iodinated resin beads are released into the water stream. The iodine combats any bacteria in the water, killing it on contact. This simple system is FDA and EPA cleared to provide water under 200 CFU/mL with absolutely no testing requirement. It was designed to provide water under 1 CFU/mL to the astronauts in the space shuttle! With no protein attached to the iodine, it poses no risk for allergies and any "unused" iodine evaporates into the air. A complete system-DentaPure is easily installed into your waterlines and provides pure water an entire year.
The ADA recently evaluated DentaPure 365 and found that it effectively filtered 240L of water and maintained less than 10 CFU/mL throughout the evaluation. Additionally, the iodine level, as measured with iodine test strips, was greater than 1.5 ppm throughout the evaluation, providing adequate disinfecting power.
