Already in the early 1980s Bruno Pregenzer, the later founder of the company, realized the dangers of continuous mercury contamination of dental waste water. He subsequently developed the first amalgam separator: a device which filters and collects the mercury containing amalgam from dental units' process water. This prevents highly toxic substances from entering and polluting the groundwater.

METASYS was founded in 1988 and within a few years it became one of the world's leading manufacturer of amalgam separators. Since then the most famous manufacturers of dental units have fitted their units with METASYS amalgam separators ex works. The vision of METASYS however, aimed at a integral solution of the amalgam problem.

This is why DENTAL ECO SERVICE, its subsidiary company, offers a comprehensive collection and recycling service for all types of amalgam containing dental waste in Europe and overseas since the turn of the millennium.

To close the circle, METASYS also started to develop its innovative hygiene products at the same time. This is how the METASYS cleaning and disinfection line GREEN&CLEAN has become a synonym for modern and environmentally friendly cleaning and disinfection of medical equipment.

New grounds could also be broken in the dental equipment with the development of suction systems, central semi-wet suction systems, compressors, hygiene systems as well as water decontamination systems.

Nowadays METASYS still presents itself as an expanding Tyrolean company, which has become a dependable partner for dentists, trade and industry with its innovative products and reliable service.
