For engineers and operatives working in the oil, gas and water industries, in fact anyone working out on site in hazardous areas, the 2500 litre safety tank shower from Showers & Eyebaths Services gives a staggering 30 minutes of continuous tepid water drench time. This unit provides a vital solution if they come in contact with hazardous substances.
In exposed locations such as coastal regions or in remote areas there is a requirement for safety showers that are fit for purpose. Working out in the field, these units must work the first time, every time. Therefore the flow of water should not be interrupted or should feed off a processing facility. If this cannot be achieved then a tank has to be fitted.
ANSI, the worldwide standard for safety showers, recommends that an emergency shower has to be capable of delivering a minimum of 75.7 litres per minute for 15 minutes. However, demands now being made by COSH (the control of substances hazardous to health) have increased from a drench time of between 20 and 30 minutes; 30 minutes being standard in USA.
The 2500 litre tank shower has been developed especially for use in inhospitable and out of the way environments as it provides additional water capacity if the tank cannot be refilled straight away. With 30 minutes of guaranteed drenching, if a site has no mains water immediately available, depending on the risk, the 2500 has enough water for two people to use consecutively.
The GFTS range of Tank Showers can be fitted with a curtain and side/rear panels, to ensure the spray hits the user rather than blowing away. Many other optional extras are available to suit specific site requirements includingwater level indicators and alarms.
The units are all highly visible and are manufactured from glass reinforced plastic and stainless steel which are corrosion resistant materials, giving a long life and suitability for outside use.[Go Back]
