ROTATOOL ESSENTIAL – VACUUM INTEGRATED UNIT
The new line of silent, low-weight units are setting a new standard for podiatry drills.
RT ESSENTIAL is a newly-designed unit, and is equipped with a brushless suction motor, which is not only very silent, but also much lower in weight. It is a pleasure for your ears and your back. The hand piece is equipped with our patented clamping system. The knob is now made out of TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) to allow maximum comfort when using it. The powerful motor enables working at speeds of 6.000-40.000 rpm.
RT Essential technology, clamping system and motor are the same as those of our other new unit RT Deluxe. RT Deluxe features even more features like memory settings, control at the hand piece and an LED light in the hand piece.
Power Clamping System
The hand piece is equipped with a unique, patented clamping system. A chuck will open inside the hand piece by pressing the well-known knob forward. The instrument can now be entered into the unit without any resistance.
Pushing the knob back again will close the chuck, and the tool will be held very secure, even at high speeds. The tight grip also ensures the low-vibration running of the hand piece. Conventional clamping systems with automatic clamping work with a mechanism in which rolls inside the hand piece wedge the instrument under pressure.
The three support jaws can be opened manually. This allows entering of the tools without resistance. It also prevents the tool from accidentally slipping out.
Ultra-Silent High Performance Suction
According to customer surveys a quiet suction is one of the most important criteria for buying a unit. The motor as well as the quality of sound insulation are important factors for creating the optimal sound of a unit. Different kinds of insulating materials are further enabling the possibility of making a wide spectrum of noise frequencies more silent.
Regular suction turbines are working with so called brush motors. The brushes are grinding on the turning engine shaft, and this wears them down over time. This technology has the disadvantages of high brush attrition as well as a larger and heavy construction.
The technology implemented in the RT ESSENTIAL and RT DELUXE units is based on a technology without brushes. This method is also used in modern computer ventilators. The advantage is that there is no wear and tear at the motor, and the whole unit is much lighter (almost 2 kg less).
Easy Maintenance & Cleaning
As soon as the display shows a filter change is required, you only need to open the hatch at the side of the unit to replace the filter with a new one. The filter chamber is easily accessed and can be comfortably opened thanks to the magnet holders in the door.
The filter bags are classified as class M filters by the BIA (Germany’s Health & Safety Institute for the work environment), meaning they have a dust retention capacity of 99,9%.
Simple Cleaning of the Chuck
A simple and fast maintenance of the most basic components is one of the important qualities of these hand pieces. The chuck can be easily removed with the spanner tool delivered with every unit. Loosen the top of the hand piece, and then turn out the cuck. The whole procedure takes less than one minute.
