Solmetex buys Crosstex amalgam separator system

By DrBicuspid Staff

December 18, 2019 -- Amalgam separation technology company Solmetex has acquired the Syclone amalgam separator system from Crosstex.

The transaction comes after the recent acquisition of Hu-Friedy by Cantel, which allows the integration of Hu-Friedy and Crosstex to form the new Cantel dental division.

For Solmetex, the purchase expands its portfolio of dental waste products and programs for its doctor partners and communities they serve.

"We anticipate a high growth of the amalgam separator business," said Ken Plunkett, senior vice president of global sales at Crosstex, in a statement. "With our ongoing other priorities, we will not have the infrastructure needed to provide the proper level of support for this product."

Transition plans are currently under development, and current Syclone users are asked to contact their local dealer or Solmetex to address any questions and coordinate their transition to the NXT Hg5 amalgam separation system.
