Comparison of water jet pressure of SoWash with electric oral irrigators
 

Comment:
In the diagram above you will find a comparison of the water jet pressure of the SoWash system (“water jet” tip) with those of electric oral irrigators; considering the use of SoWash with a faucet water pressure (ex. between 2.5 and 3.5 bar) usually found in home water systems, the pressure of the SoWash water jet (blue area) is completely in range with the water jet pressure of the most common electric oral irrigators.
In the case that you desire a lower water jet pressure, with SoWash it is possible just by adjusting the faucet flow.

 

Specifications/Notes:

  • The values of the water jet pressure are indicated in grams;
  • The units are approximate and have a tolerance of +/- 15%
  • The electric oral irrigators tested do not all have the same number of adjustments (ranging from 3 to 10): the circular shaped indicators on the graph indicate the detected value of each adjustment;
  • For the SoWash design it took into consideration its use with faucet water pressure of 2.5 to 3.5 bar seeing as it corresponds to the minimum and maximum water pressures typically found in domestic water systems. A pressure of 2 bar represents an unlikely condition but it has been included in order to illustrate the effectiveness of SoWash even with minimum pressures.
  • The growth curves of SoWash are indicative graphic illustrations seeing as they may vary depending on the water faucet model and opening; the final value indicates the maximum output of the water jet when the faucet is fully open.

Tips pressure

Comment:

In the diagram above you will find a comparison of the water jet pressure of various SoWash tips.
The diagram illustrates how the pressure of the “irrigator” tip is more suitable for sensitive gums, while the “water jet” and “spray” tip sare for those who prefer a more thorough cleaning.
The spray tip has a more open/wider water jet so that the pressure may be applied onto a wider surface compared to the water jet tip which has a more subtle and precise water jet, also particularly suitable for orthodontic implants, bridges or braces.
 

Specifiche/Note:

  • The units of the pressure are indicated in grams;
  • The units are approximate and have a tolerance of +/- 15%;
  • The units refer to a use with a faucet water pressure of 3 bar;
  • The power of the water jet irrigator and Vortice refers to every single water jet;
  • The growth curves are indicative graphic illustrations seeing as they may vary depending on the water faucet model and opening; the final value indicates the maximum output of the water jet when the faucet is fully open.
