HINGED INSTRUMENTS MAINTENANCE

Learn how to take care of your hinged instruments

A proper maintenance of your hinged instruments is the key for an enhanced efficiency during your procedures and for preserving the investment made by choosing Hu-Friedy instruments.

TWO EFFECTIVE ACTIONS TO BE CARRIED OUT FROM NOW!

Buying a Hu-Friedy instrument is a choice of value.
We are sure that you would be glad to hear which are the best practices we suggest to carry out to preserve the quality and the efficiency of your hinged instruments (like needle holders, scissors, extraction forceps as also orthodontic pliers and cutters).

Open position and lubrication: these are the keys!

There are two virtuous actions that we suggest you implement in your daily practice when using hinged products.

1 - Process them in an open position

Make sure that you always reprocess hinged instruments in open position: this will prevent organic materials to dry and corrosion events to appear at the hinged level.

2- Remember to lubricate them

Hinged instruments need to be always lubricated with a lubricant suitable for steam sterilization, such as Hu-Friedy Instrument Lubricant Spray (ILS)

HINGED INSTRUMENTS, PLIERS, BONE RONGEUR FORCEPS, SCISSORS AND NEEDLE HOLDERS SHOULD ALWAYS BE WELL LUBRICATED.

If applied regularly, Hu-Friedy ILS Spray prevents abrasive corrosion and reduces friction levels when tools are used. Please always ensure hinged instruments are open before cleaning, disinfection or sterilisation.

Potential damage (bending, breaking, etc.) is reduced when hinged instruments are securely held in open position for optimal cleaning.
