Please note that this guarantee does not cover damage caused by accident, improper care, misuse, alterations to the Anaqa instruments, or user negligence.
ANAQA instruments should be disinfected and sterilised following the processing guidelines. This guarantee does not cover damages that arise because these guidelines have not been followed.
ISFY reserves the right to decide whether an instrument is to be repaired or replaced. Where instruments require sharpening, this is considered
routine maintenance with normal use and is not covered by the guarantee.
The frequency of sharpening depends on the frequency of use, as well as, the types and diameters of wires on which the cutter is being used. Check cutters frequently to assess if sharpening is needed.
An Orange/Brown stain is usually a phosphate layer caused by water sources, cleaning detergents, sterilization solutions. A black stain is usually an acid reaction caused by detergents.
Dark brown stain usually caused by dried blood residues. Bluish/black stain usually is plating caused by autoclave cleaning material.
Never mix a corroded instrument with new instruments as oxidation may be spread to new instruments. It is recommended that corroded instruments be discarded or replaced.
It is extremely important to follow proper handling, care and sterilisation methods to ensure proper instrument function and improve the instrument life. Avoid tap water during the cleaning and sterilisation of instruments. Tap water contains high levels of minerals that can cause instrument discolouration and corrosion. Tap water can also neutralize rust inhibiting and lubricating solution. Always use purified, distilled water in ultrasonic cleaning and autoclave sterilisation units. It is also recommended to use a no-rinse ultrasonic solution that contains both a rust inhibitor and a lubricant prior to sterilisation and follow the manufacturer’s exact solution measurements.
surface layer, which protects against corrosion. Water droplets, organic residue and bonding agents left on the instruments prevent
oxygen contact with the surface of instrument and protective layer of chromium oxide will not form. It is recommended
– Instruments should be thoroughly cleaned of all residual matter prior to sterilisation.
– All instruments should be sterilised in their open position.
– All instruments should be thoroughly air or towel dried taking special care in the joint areas and crevices.
– Instruments that corrosion should never be sterilised with non-corroded instruments as the iron oxide on the corroded instrument can transfer to the non-corroded instruments permanently.
