Tornado Quietly powerful.

The most powerful air driven handpiece of the world

Power is Control. The confidence to master any challenge. Every aspect of the Tornado makes a clear and convincing statement of its leadership position. Equipped with SteadyTorque™ technology, this competent air driven handpiece delivers an outstanding power output of 30 watts – a superiority that is both hard to compare and hard to resist. Experience faster dental procedures and expand your practice’s efficiency and profitability with commanding skill.

Silence is Comfort. The satisfaction of quiet effectiveness. The lowest on the market today, the decibel intensity of the Tornado equals that of a peaceful Alpine stream, thanks to the noise-reducing properties of two novel features – the Accu-Spray Quattro Mix™ spray system and the Accu-Chuck PreciPlus™ vibration-canceling bur-retention mechanism. This soft, almost reassuring sound is intended to help even your most apprehensive patients feel at ease, all while protecting and preserving your hearing.

Reliability is Performance. Our commitment to first-rate quality. The coming together of the most advanced micro-technologies and more than 50 years of industry expertise and innovation ensures quality and reliability without compromise. This is substantiated as Bien-Air products are designed, manufactured, and individually-tested at our global headquarters in Bienne, Switzerland. Think of the TORNADO as a cornerstone of your practice and a fundamental component of your reputation.

* 2-year standard warranty and 1-year optional warranty available through Bien-Air's PlanCare extended warranty program.

Tornado Advantages

 

Tornado tech

SteadyTorque™ high power generator.

The masterful engineering of the rotor’s micron-precise shape and configuration, coupled with optimal air pressure distribution and exhaust flow, warrant the Tornado an unrivaled 30-watt power output. To contribute to an impeccable user experience, the turbine’s head is ergonomically compact and the sound level at an all-time 55-decibel low. This exclusive technology is complemented with specially-designed ceramic ball bearings capable of handling the highest speed and heaviest loads, guaranteeing the Tornado superior durability and resilience.

Accu-Chuck PreciPlus™
bur-locking and rotation drive mechanism

This revolutionary technology assures a staunch clamping of the bur, eliminating all vibrations, and granting the TORNADO unequaled stability and comfort for the most precise dental work. Conversely, bur-release is made quick and safe, thanks to Bien-Air's unique Soft Push™ system.

Accu-Spray Quattro Mix™
with LED illumination

This exclusive system converges four asymmetrical laser-precise air/water sprays onto the tip of the bur for rapid and even cooling of the operative field. In combination with a LED light, unobscured intraoral visibility is guaranteed.

 

Sealed Head™ contamination control

In combination with an anti-retraction valve, this wear-resistant mechanism prevents oral fluids and other organisms from infiltrating the instrument's head, water lines, and treatment unit. This obviates the risk of patient cross-contamination and noticeably prolongs the ball bearings' lifespan.

 

Cool Touch™ safety

Conveniently integrated into the head's push button, this patented anti-heating technology is designed to maintain the instrument's head at a safe temperature, thus significantly decreasing patient burn injuries.

 

Custom-designed ceramic ball bearings

These wear-resistant Bien-Air ceramic ball bearings grant the handpiece extended service life and contribute to lower acoustic noise levels.

 

Size and weight

The optimal diameter and height of the head facilitates maneuverability and posterior access. The TORNADO's comparatively lighter weight pushes the limits of comfort even further with more balanced manipulation and reduced hand and wrist fatigue.

 

TotalTact™ coating

This smooth hygienic nonslip coating presents elevated resistance to scratching and abrasion and withstands the high temperatures of repeated autoclave sterilization cycles.

 

Free move

Freedom of movement for optimum working comfort. Thanks to its light rotating Unifix quick-connect connection and an easy-to-use secure release, the Bien-Air turbine/hose combination will prove a pleasant work companion day in, day out.
