When you want the very best quality of air to your surgery, there is just one name to consider – Bambi!
With over 40 years in the manufacture of precision air compressors in the United Kingdom, we have developed a comprehensive understanding of the needs of premium air requirements the medical profession demands.
Clean air is more than ever vital in today’s dental surgeries for:
- Patient safety
- Ensuring dry tooth surface for composite bonding / veneers
- Conducting implant procedures
- Protecting delicate hand piece bearings
Bambi’s VT range utilises an ingenious induction system and harmonic anti vibration mountings to keep running noise levels incredibly low. The design of the VT range has less moving parts than a conventional articulating piston compressor too, ensuring reliability and peace of mind.
VTS models are perfect for times where installation space is limited and compressors need to be sited near the point of use. With incredibly low noise levels (from 54 dBA) you can rest assured that you can install your compressor near staff with no audible issues.
All Bambi air receivers are internally protected with an anti-corrosion coating to eliminate rusting and ensure air is contamination free.
Bambi offer a 2 year, no quibble warranty on the compressor, 5 years warranty on the air receiver.
The importance of air dryers
Whenever air is compressed, moisture which is naturally present in the atmosphere is also compressed and condenses in the air receiver.
This collection of moisture limits the capacity of the air receiver and could pass downstream to your equipment which is why you must drain the receiver on a regular basis.Because of the high temperature of the air post compression, bacteria may grow inside the air receiver. To overcome this, we always recommend choosing your VT compressor with an integral dryer to lower the dew point.
Models with a dryer (suffix ‘D”) first cool the air and remove water solids to 0.01 micron. Bambi VT dryers utilise desiccant technology to reduce the dew point up to -40°C, far below the point where bacteria stops growing. Drying the air to such levels effectively removes the need to drain the air receiver for an effectively ‘maintenance free’ compressor. Any residual water vapour originating from the dryer purge is removed and collected in a handy condensate bottle for convenient disposal.
The VT range
There are models available in the VT range to meet the needs of the smallest rural to the largest multi surgery dental practice and busy dental laboratory.

Bambi VT Range
Quality is the primary component built into each Bambi VT oil free compressor. Packed with novel features like a ‘soft start’ solenoid valve, small footprint and a wide range of motor sizes (0.75HP to 4HP), the VT range is the go to compressor for professionals that understand the importance of high quality, reliable air.
Bambi VTH Range
The VTH offers the same exacting performance and specification as the standard VT but with horizontal air receivers, reducing the overall height to fit those awkward low gaps.
Bambi VTS Range
Where absolutely no noise is essential, VTSD models have been designed from the ground up to exhibit class leading levels of calm and eliminate the need for ugly hoods or aftermarket covers. The integral air receiver and easy to clean surface show the care and attention our designers build into every Bambi compressor.
For those customers wishing to comply with the HTM2022 regulations, all VT oil free compressors with dryers are compliant when installed with optional additional downstream breathing air and bacterial filters. We advise you to always check the exact air demands of your equipment as some may require more air than the 50 l/min @ 5 Bar per surgery that the directive states.

Choosing the right compressor for you
When sizing a compressor for a practice we always recommend seeking the advice of your usual dental equipment dealer who will understand your specific requirements. The below sizing guide is based on typical air usage in practices (not HTM2022) however it is worth remembering that some hand-piece cleaners, washer disinfectors and air abrasion also require air.
