PLUMBED-IN EYEWASHES & SHOWERS are designed to direct a fixed water source to eyes, face or body in emergencies. Wall mount or pedestal-mounted eyewashes and eye/face washes should be located nearest the point of need but no more than 10 seconds (55′) away from the hazard.
Combination Shower & Eyewash Fixtures pair-up eyewash with emergency showers when the MSDS calls for both eye and skin irrigation. To accommodate various site conditions, combination units provide serval options including Stainless components, PVC, foot-treadle operation, anti-scald or anti-freeze valves and freeze-protected heat trace units.
Laboratory, Faucet-Mounted & Swing-Away Eyewash & Shower Fixtures are uniquely designed for indoor environments where space is at a premium, including healthcare, university, and the QC lab. Products solutions include swing-activated units, faucet-mounted eyewash stations, and combination fixtures; all designed to provide the safest possible lab environment.
Water Tempering Products are designed to meet ANSI standard Z358.1 requirements to deliver “tepid” water to injured workers. In addition to discouraging the use of a safety flushing device, a 15-minute deluge of cold water to an injured worker can negatively affect core body temperature, and hypothermia can result. Tempering solutions include steams, instantaneous (on demand) heaters and thermostatic mixing valve (TMV’s). TMV’s blend hot and cold water to meet strictly specified water temperature ranges.
Portable Eyewashes provide self-contained fluid where plumbed water is not available. Gravity-fed or pressurized portable eyewash systems should deliver the ANSI minimum 15-minute safety eyewash drench. To keep water stored in these portable systems safe for ophthalmic use, and the antibacterial agent is included or available separately. These units often can be freeze protected for outdoor applications. Portable eyewash stations installed in temperatures below 16 degrees C will need to be of a tempering design to maintain compliance with ANSI standard Z358.1
Supplemental Eyewashes include bottled eyewash and other devices that do not meet 15-minute drench criteria. These supplemental solutions are designed to treat nuisance hazards an/or as an initial first aid to injured workers during the path to certified eyewash, but they do not mee the 15-minute drench criteria and the ANSI standard Z358.1 Bottled eyewash is designed to be positioned close to the point of need. Acceptable for immediate first-aid, bottled eyewashes should support, but not substitute, a primary eyewash or shower unit.
