Dental Nitrous Carts: Porter, Accutron, and The Belmed F300
Dental Nitrous Carts
Belmed is quickly becoming the most popular supplier of dental nitrous carts in the united states, and Covid-19 is giving them a big lead on other manufacturers. Many supply chains have been negatively impacted by the onset of Covid-19, and manufacturers of dental nitrous carts are feeling the pain. Currently, lead times from popular manufacturers of dental nitrous systems, such as Porter, are in excess of 10 weeks, some even claiming 14 week lead times! There isn't any clarification on when these lead times will clear up, but the shortages are working to the benefit of Belmed, and more specifically, the Belmed F300 portable nitrous cart.
The Belmed F300 is an analog nitrous flowmeter unit, much like the Accutron PC and Porter's MXR and the MATRX, but is $1000 less on average and every bit as durable, if that's not enough, as of 11/16/2020, the F300 unit is only at a 3-4 week lead time.
About Dental Nitrous Carts
Dental flowmeters are medical devices used to safely control the flow rate of oxygen and nitrous oxide being administered to a patient during a conscious sedation procedure. All of our dental flowmeters allow for independent flow control of both oxygen and nitrous oxide and are available with either analog or digital controls. The most common oxygen flow rates for adult patients ranges from 3-10 LPM and 0-7 LPM for nitrous oxide. Some of the most common and reputable manufacturers include Belmed, Accutron, Porter, and Matrx. Most manufacturers provide a standard 2 year warranty on their flowmeters. We have a wide selection of wall mount, undermount, countertop, and portable dental flowmeters to choose from. You can select your flowmeter based on flow range, mounting application, and brand. Our most popular dental flowmeters are the Belmed 5000 PC-7 Head and the Belmed F300 Portable Unit with Yoke Block. For more information on the dental flowmeter you select, see the “Specifications” tab at the bottom of the page and you will be directed to the manufacturer’s product spec sheet.
