1. Locate the four mounting bolts that were included with your dental chair. These bolts areattached to all model 4000 dental chairs. See image below for the location.2. Remove the mounting bolts and mount the bracket as shown in the image below.3. Leveling Chair bracket. The chair bracket has a total of 8 set screws. Use the lower set screws to adjust the PMU left, right, front and back. This will makelarge adjustments to the tilt of the post that is inserted into the bracket cup. Use the upper set screws to make fine adjustments and lock the post in place. Once the post is level you may fasten the set screws tightly to ensure the post stays level.If your post is not level your unit will not be level and the flex arm will drift.
4. Loosen the 8 leveling set screws, and then place the PMU (Post mount utility center) inthe cup of the chair bracket. Figure1 Shown in the image below. Center the mountingpost in the cup. Also verify if the PMU is aligned straight with dental chair armrest. Thenproceed to tighten the set screws.5. Verify the PMU is level before tightening the set screws on chair bracket. There are 8 setscrews that will be used for leveling. If the PMU is not level the unit arms may drift.Small adjustments to the set screws will level the PMU. Level the PMU in the followingdirections. (left to right and front to back).
6. Place the assistant's suction arm on the PMU as shown in the image below. If the arm isnot level use the leveling screw shown below (right) to adjust its angle.7. Remove the PMU side cover. To remove it, pull on the lower lip to detach its magneticconnection. Place it out of the way to ensure it does not get damaged. This side cover willremain detached until the end of the installation.
8. If you are installing a post mounted light insert it as shown in the images below. Makesure you place the cosmetic ring over the light post before inserting. Tighten the set screwto secure the light post in place.9. Take the delivery unit flex arm out, and place the additional cosmetic ring on it as shownbelow. Once in place, take all lines and feed it through the bushing assembly as shown.Verify that the arm seats completely down in the bushing assembly. Lower the cosmeticring to cover the seam between the assistant's arm and the delivery unit flex arm.
10. You may now remove the plastic from the bundle of tubing s that you fed through in theprevious step. Take the touch pad wire shown below and feed it through the chair bracketas shown.11. Route the touch pad cable along the chair bracket channel. Then feed it through the "cutout" in the plastic shroud. Connect the touchpad wire and place it aside as shown.
12. Take the delivery systems foot control and feed it through the bottom of the PMU. Makethe following connections from your foot control to the tubing within the PMU side box.13. Tubing connections Grey female from foot control to Black supply to the flex arm. Grey male from foot control to Yellow supply from Umbilical. Green female from foot control to Green male from the flex arm. Grey female from umbilical to Grey male from the flex arm. Purple female from umbilical to Purple male from the flex arm. Dark Red female from umbilical to Dark Red male from the flex arm. Blue female from umbilical to Blue male from the flex arm. Yellow female from umbilical to Yellow male from the flex arm. You will have two spare lines available the event of a tubing failure.14. There is also two additional lines that will be left unused if you are not installing theoptional 2000-C cuspidor. One large water supply line and a small yellow air supply linethat has a cap on it.
Optional Cuspidor InstallationIf you are installing the optional 2000-C cuspidor, remove the Cuspidor housing cover asshown. To install the cuspidor, slide the cuspidor into the cuspidor bushing housing.Make sure the cuspidor is completely seated in the bushing.15. Take the cup fill and bowl rinse spout and insert them into the corresponding sockets.When inserting the spouts into the sockets make note of the notches in the cuspidorsocket and the spouts that are being inserted into them. They will only seat properly oneway. Do not remove the Teflon tape that is wrapped around the spouts. See imagesbelow. Place the cuspidor strainer in the bowl.
Cuspidor Plumbing Connections16. Connect the drain line. Remove the blue locking tab to separate the quick connect fromthe junction. Insert the removed end into the drain line tubing. Connect the two endstogether and replace the locking clip.17. Remove the cap from the large water supply line, Connect the water supply line to thecuspidor. Remove the cap from the signal air line, then connect it to the cuspidor.18. The 2000C cuspidor possesses timing adjustments. In the event that you need to makeadjustments, the timing pressure release valves are located on the bottom of the cuspidor.These adjustments will shut off the water flow so that you may fill a specified cup size, orbowl rinse cycle time.
Junction Box Connections19. Before making any connections in the junction box, be sure to clear the supply lines. Ifthere is any debri in the air line it will collect on the micron filter. Verify the line is clear.20. Once the line are verified and cleared, you may connect the master controls. The mastercontrols are similar looking. One is for the Air which is identified by the large yellowtubing that exits the back end of the master control valve. The master control for thewater line is identified by the large blue line that exits the back of the master controlvalve.21. Once the connections are made you may open the angle stops or equivalent shut offvalve. Once the valve is open you may check the mater control gauges and verify that thepressures are set accordingly. Air pressure should read approximately 80 PSI. Waterpressure should read 40 PSI.22. Once air and water pressure are set, you may now make adjustments to the syringe blocksif necessary. Also check your handpiece pressure and adjust accordingly.HandpieceSyringe Block:Water AdjustmentAir AdjustmentPressure AdjustmentUse a flat head screwdrive to make adjustments.Turning clockwise willdecrease the pressure.Turning counter clockwisewill increase the airpressure.
Post mount utility center adjustments (PMU)1. There are two main adjustments that can be made in the PMU. Assistant's side syringe block adjustmentsTurning the screw counter clockwise will increase the air / water pressure.Turning the screw clockwise will decrease the air / water pressure. Water bottle pressure adjustmentsLoosen the lock nut, then turn theknob counter clockwise to decreasethe air pressure. Turn the knobclockwise to increase pressure.DONT allow more then 40PSI of airpressure to supply the bottle.Tension Adjustments2. In a situation that you need to add tension to the delivery unit flex arms please see thefollowing locations. NOTE: tension adjustments are only a temporary fix for driftingarms. If your arms are drifting first verify the PMU is level. Check the light post to verifyits plum. If light post is not level make the proper adjustments by re-leveling the unit.Tension spring adjustment3. If you need to make adjustments to the tension spring in the flex arm follow theprocedure below. Remove the flex arm cap cover. Use a 3/8" ratchet with 2" extension Turn clockwise to increase the tension Turn counter clockwise to decrease tension. Only make adjustments in half turn increments.
delivery head leveling and tilt adjustments4. If you need to level the unit head or adjust the tilt use the following adjustments. Loosen the 4 Allen screws that attach the unit head to the short control arm. Seeimage. Once the screws are loose, use the two adjustment screws in the center oneach side to level the head. To adjust the unit head tilt, remove the flex arm end cap closest to the deliveryunit head. Loosen the stop nut, and using an Allen wrench turn the adjustmentscrew clockwise to increase the tilt of the delivery unit head.

Dental Delivery System IntroductionThe TPC Dental Delivery System is a modern highly efficient dental delivery systemdesigned for efficiency and convenience in the dental operatory. The unit is shippedpre-assembled and tested, ready for immediate installation.This manual contains detailed information about the operation and maintenance ofyour delivery system. Carefully following these instructions will assure that your systemwill give you years of reliable service as well as being covered under the manufacturers’warranty.The Dental Delivery System features a three handpiece automatic control system.The system is a post mounted unit that may be installed with or without cuspidor.The control head is mounted on a movable arm system that allows a full range ofvertical and horizontal movement. The air operated brake mechanism locks the armagainst vertical movement once it is set into position.TPC Advanced TechnologyPage 3
Unit Controls DescriptionAll operating controls are located on the underside of the unit control head. Thislocation was chosen to reduce contamination via air-borne contaminants.Dental Delivery System Control HeadMaster On/Off ToggleThis toggle turns the unit on. It activates the air andwater shut-off valves which control the air and watersupplies to the delivery unit. The location of the toggleis on the right underside of the unit head near thecenter.Shown with Optional ViewerAlways turn the Master On/Off Toggle to the “OFF”position when the operatory is unoccupied. This willensure protection against damage resulting from water leakage from the delivery unit.Air Coolant Control ValveControl of coolant air to the handpiece is adjusted by turning the valve counterclockwiseto increase air flow, clockwise to decrease. The location of this valve is on the leftunderside of the unit head near the center.Water Coolant Flow Control ValveEach water control valve adjusts the amount of water supplied to it’s handpiece. Thecontrol valves are positioned to correspond with the handpiece layout. The locationof this valve is on the front underside of the unit head next to each correspondinghandpiece holder.Handpiece Flush Control ToggleThis is a momentary toggle that flushes out the handpieces with coolant water whenactivated. Hold the handpieces over cuspidor or other suitable container and activateand hold the toggle for at least 20 seconds to flush out the handpieces. The locationof this valve is on the right underside of the unit head near the front.Air Brake ButtonThe button is located on the end of the control head handle. The momentary valveactivates and releases the air brake in the control arm when adjusting the height of thecontrol head. Once it is placed in the desired position release the button to lock thedelivery system arm against vertical movement.Handpiece AutoholdersHandpiece selection is automatic. The holders contain actuator valves that allow theoperation of the specific handpiece that is lifted from its holder, without the need fora manual selector.Page 4TPC Advanced Technology
Dental Delivery System Cuspidor (Optional)The Dental Delivery System cuspidors are equippedwith timed bowl rinse and manually actuated cupfiller. Both functions are controlled by buttons onthe top of the cuspidor housing.Bowl Rinse ToggleThis momentary push button valve activates the bowlrinse function. The bowl will rinse for 30 secondsbefore automatically shutting off. This membraneswitch is located on the top left surface of cuspidornear the centerCup Filler ToggleThis momentary push button valve activates the cup filler, set to fill a 5 ounce cupfull. This membrane switch is located on the top right surface of cuspidor near thecenter.Wet / Dry Foot ControlEach dental unit is equipped with a variable speed, disc type foot control. Foot pressureon any part of the disc controls the flow of air to the active handpiece. A signal relaywithin the foot control simultaneously activates the air and water coolant.Water Coolant On/Off ToggleOr wet/dry toggle, interrupts the flow of water coolant to the handpieces whenperforming a procedure that requires dry cutting.Dental Delivery System Post-Mounted Utility CenterWater Flow Control ValveThis control valve adjusts the flow from the water outlet.This control valve is located at the front of the utility centerabove the city water switch and below the air and waterquick disconnects. Turn the knob counterclockwise to open(increase) and clockwise to close (decrease).Water OutletThe water outlet accepts a 1/4" male quick disconnectfitting. This fitting is located at the front of the utilitycenter above the Water Flow Control Valve on the left sidenext to the Air Outlet.TPC Advanced TechnologyPage 5
Air Outlet:The air outlet accepts a 3/8” male quick disconnect fitting. This fitting is located atthe front of the utility center above the Water Flow Control Valve on the right sidenext to the Water Outlet.City / Bottle Selector SwitchThis toggle allows user to switch between city water supply and bottle water supply.The toggle switch is located below the Water Flow Control Valve on the front of theutility center.Dental Delivery System Vacuum UtilitiesThe Dental Delivery System features the assistant’s instrument holder on a pull-outarm mounted to the post. The instrument holder accommodates a saliva ejector valve,(2) HVE, valve and three way syringe.Solids CollectorThe solids collector screens particulates introduced to the system through the salivaejector and high vacuum ejector. The solids collector is located at the top of the utilitycenter in the center. The strainer screen must be cleaned and disinfected or replacedat least once a week.Dental Delivery System Clean Water SystemEach delivery unit comes equipped with a self contained bottlesystem. This is an excellent way to ensure a clean and safeenvironment for your patients. By using the water bottle youcan control the quality of water that enters the lines and reducethe risk of contamination. Each system is equipped with acity / bottle selector switch allowing the user to choose thesource of water to the syringe and handpiece.The water bottle uses 40 psi pressurized air to supply water tothe syringe and handpieces. The cup filler and cuspidor bowlrinse remains on a separate line and receives its water supplyfrom the office plumbing.Page 6TPC Advanced Technology
To Use the Water Bottle Make sure the unit master switch is in the “OFF” position while the water bottleis removed. Fill the water bottle, then attach to the threaded pressure cap. Be careful not toovertighten the bottle. Turn the unit back on again and check for any leaks in the bottle connection.If any air or water leaks occur, turn the unit off and allow it to depressurizebefore retightening the bottle. When changing or refilling the bottle, remember to turn off the system and allowseveral seconds for the unit to depressurize.WARNINGDo not use any bottle other than the pressurized bottle provided.Never use standard soft drink bottles, which may fail under pressure.Do not attempt to adjust the water pressure, which is pre-set at the factory.Pressurizing the bottle over 40 psi may cause it to rupture.Other Uses:The water bottle is also an effective tool in reducing the growth of biofilm andmaintaining waterline asepsis. It may be filled with waterline treatment products aswell as air to purge remaining water.TPC Advanced TechnologyPage 7
General Operation AdjustmentsALERTAlways be aware of the following items when making handpiece adjustments:Never operate any handpiece without a bur in the chuck. When there is no burin place, parts of the chuck are loose, causing the turbine to be out of balance,potentially damaging the handpiece. Also, avoid running the handpiece at fullspeed or for more than a few seconds at a time when not actually cutting teeth.Handpiece Air Coolant AdjustmentThe air coolant flow control will affect all of the handpiece positions in unison. Sincethe air coolant characteristics of most handpieces are similar, one setting is normallyacceptable for all of your handpieces.Note that some handpieces draw their air coolant from the drive air. These includeany handpiece that uses a 2-hole handpiece tubing, as well as some that have a coaxialconnector. These handpieces will not be affected by the air coolant adjustment.1.On the foot control, flip the wet/ dry toggle OFF. Install a bur in the handpiecethat you are going to run while making this adjustment.2.Step on the foot control to run the handpiece at half speed. While the handpieceis running, turn the air coolant flow control to achieve the desired flow.Handpiece Water Coolant AdjustmentThe water coolant characteristics vary significantly from one handpiece to another, soindividual flow controls are provided.1.After adjusting the air coolant as described above, flip the wet/ dry toggle on thefoot control to ON. Install a bur in the handpiece for which you are making thisadjustment.2.Turn the water coolant flow control knob clockwise to its stop. Step on the footcontrol to run the handpiece at medium speed. Gradually open the flow control(counter- clockwise) until a fine mist appears around the bur.3.This setting achieves optimum cooling, while minimizing the creation ofpotentially hazardous aerosols.Page 8TPC Advanced Technology
Drive Air Pressure AdjustmentMaximum handpiece speed is controlled by adjusting the drive air pressure. Theadjusting screws and pressure gauge are located inside the control head. There is aseparate adjusting screw for each handpiece.1.Lift the unit head cover from the front. Pull unit cover up until internal componentare exposed.2.Identify the drive air gauge and the drive air adjusting screws on the controlblock.3.Install a bur in the handpiece you are going to adjust. The adjusting screwsshould correspond in sequence with the positions of the handpieces on the hangerbar. Use a small straight slot screwdriver to make the adjustment.4.Run the handpiece, while turning the adjusting screw (clockwise to decreasepressure, counter-clockwise to increase) to achieve the manufacturer’srecommended maximum pressure with the foot control fully depressed.IMPORTANTThe drive air gauge in the control head reads pressure at the control block.Because of the normal restrictions in tubings and connectors, the pressuredelivered to the handpiece will be approximately 15 psi less than shown on thisgauge. Take this into account when using the built-in gauge.Syringe Flow AdjustmentAdjusting screws allow you to control the flow of air and water from the syringe toprevent splashing and to achieve a desirable mist pattern.1.Use a 3/32 inch hex key to make the syringe flow adjustment. Identify whichadjusting screw is for air and which is for water by the color of the tubing connectedto the block. Blue is water, yellow is air.Flex Arm Balance AdjustmentThe flex arm balance should be adjusted to accommodate the amount of weight thatyou normally have on the handpiece control, so that the control head does not driftup or down when the arm brake toggle is released.1.Remove end Arm Caps from each end of the straight horizontal flex arm. Locatethe spring adjusting nut.Continued on next page TPC Advanced TechnologyPage 9
Insert a straight slot screw driver or automotive brake adjusting tool into the holeto engage the notches on the adjusting nut. Use a prying motion against thesides of the slot to turn the nut and adjust the spring tension. Turn the nut clockwise to increase the spring tension and load-carrying capacityof the arm. Counter-clockwise will decrease the spring tension. Release the arm brake to test the setting, and make further adju
