Air Techniques, Inc., a leading innovator, and manufacturer of dental equipment have announced a new product line of Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen Nasal Hoods and Scavenging Circuits. As the market leader in dental air compressors and vacuum systems, this new product offering benefits from Air Techniques’ established and reliable line of high-quality vacuum systems.


There are multiple innovations that bring Air Techniques’ Double Nasal Hoods to the next level. The double hood design minimizes ambient nitrous oxide in the operatory while utilizing an oval exhalation valve that directs exhaled gases to the built-in scavenger “flow channels”, maximizing efficiency. These hoods focus on a “size matters” approach. The inner hood seals to the face to ensure proper gas delivery to the patient. A smaller profile provides improved “sightline” visibility for the dental staff and therefore allows better access to the oral cavity.


“Air Techniques is a staple in dental air and vacuum systems, Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen Sedation is the next natural fit for Air Techniques,” said Chris Wilson, Air Techniques’ Business Development Manager. “Our new Double Nasal Hoods were created with design, material, and fit all in mind. We wanted to ensure these products functionality and design were comfortable to patients and performance provided confidence to practitioners.”


The Double Nasal Hoods are latex-free and utilize a universal fit with other double scavenging circuits. This allows for use of your existing systems with the new Air Techniques Double Nasal HoodsAir Techniques’ Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen Scavenging Circuits are fully autoclavable and provides for safer delivery and monitoring. They are also compatible with most nitrous oxide/oxygen flowmeters.

Established in 1962 by founders Louis E. Brooks, Jack Alpert, and George Kauer, this year marks Air Techniques’ 58th anniversary of providing dental professionals with compelling and reliable products.

The year 1962 was memorable and included events such as John Glenn becoming the first American to orbit the Earth, President Kennedy’s “Consumer Bill of Rights” speech, and Spiderman’s first appearance in a comic.

During 1962 the average cost for gas was 28 cents a gallon, while the average yearly income was $5,556. Times have changed since 1962; however, Air Techniques’ commitment set by our founders remains intact.

Nearly six decades later, Air Techniques provides digital and utility systems and merchandise solutions all across the United States, Canada, South America, Middle East, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, China, and Asia. Air Techniques’ Global Headquarters is located in Melville, New York. Our facility is an impressive 200,000 square feet and home to our manufacturing plant, in which we maintain our ISO 13485:2016 MDSAP registration certification. Key departments that are also based out of our Global Headquarters include engineering, customer care, marketing, research and development, and various other essential departments.

In the mid-1970’s Air Techniques became a part of the Dürr Dental Group, which was founded in 1941 by brothers Karl and Wilhelm Dürr from Gechingen, a town in Germany’s Black Forest. The Dürr Dental Group currently has around 1,100 employees throughout the world in 36 countries. They are headquartered in Bietigheim-Bissingen, where about 400 employees are engaged in production, research, and development as well as sales and marketing.
