The battery-operated Bluephase 20i is on a mission to give customers the maximum comfort: the highest light intensity of 2,000 mW/cm2 in the Turbo mode with extremely short curing times of no more than 5 seconds for light and dark composites, while being gentle to the pulp and the soft tissue.
The full capacity of Bluephase 20i is particularly useful when consistent and maximum performance is required, for instance when all-ceramic restorations are placed or orthodontic brackets are bonded. Due to the polymerization of every aspect for 5 seconds and the integrated fan for continuous cooling, adhesively cemented IPS Empress and IPS e.max restorations are polymerized in no time.
The light is switched on by means of the start button. Once the selected curing time has elapsed, the curing program is automatically terminated. If desired, the light can be switched off before the set curing time has elapsed by pressing the start button again.
The fan is activated simultaneously to the light. Once the curing time has elapsed, the fan continues to run for a certain time to cool the apparatus.
The battery must not be removed as long as the fan is still running
Acoustic signals can be heard for the following functions: Start (Stop) Every 10 seconds Program change Curing time change Connecting the battery to the charging base Inserting battery Error message Measuring the light intensity
The light intensity of the Bluephase 20i and the supplied 10>8 mm light probe can be checked, for instance, by means of the Bluephase Meter.
If the measured value does not correspond with the expected light intensity, proceed as follows:
Check the selected curing program
Clean light sensor if it is contaminated
Remove the light probe and clean the light emission window of the handpiece with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol.
Clean light probe if it is contaminated (see Maintenance and cleaning) Replace a damaged light probe with a new one
