How to select the right eyewash product

As an emergency ambulance safety protection device, eyewash is widely used in various factories in China. However, there are many types of eyewash products. When customers buy eyewashers, they see a lot of eyewash products. They don’t know how to choose which style of eyewash products to use in their work environment.

When customers purchase eyewashes, they first come into contact with the types of eyewash products. China Eyewasher Network classifies emergency spray eyewashers according to different conditions, forming different types of products, for selecting emergency spray eye washers. Good help when

First: Determine according to the toxic and hazardous chemicals at the work site:

When there is chloride, fluoride, sulfuric acid or oxalic acid at a concentration of more than 50%, you can only choose a dip ABS eye wash or a specially treated high performance stainless steel eye wash. Because the eye washer made of stainless steel 304 material can resist the corrosion of acids, alkalis, salts and oils in general, but it can not resist the corrosion of chloride, fluoride, sulfuric acid or oxalic acid with concentration above 50%. In the working environment in which the above substances exist, the eyewash produced by the stainless steel 304 material, in less than six months, the eye wash will be largely destroyed.
Second: Determine according to the local ambient temperature:

Ambient temperature T: T>5°C and T<38°C: choose ordinary eye washer
Ambient temperature T:T>-5°C and T<38°C: Select antifreeze eyewasher – above ground automatic emptying antifreeze eye washer
Ambient temperature T:T>-10°C and T<38°C: Select antifreeze eyewash-embedded automatic emptying antifreeze eye washer or ADV antifreeze eye washer
Ambient temperature T: T<-10°C: Select electric heat eye washer or electric heating eye wash
Ambient temperature T: T>45°C: Select heat-proof eye washer
Ambient temperature T: T>-10°C and T>45°C: Select antifreeze and heat-proof eye wash eye cleaner
Third: decide according to whether there is water in the workplace:

Fixed water source on site: fixed eye wash
No fixed water source on site: portable eye wash
In the actual scene, the fixed eye washer is the most used, the following highlights the product:

Hybrid eye washer: equipped with spray part and eye wash part, installed directly on the ground of the work site
Vertical eye wash: only the eye wash part, no spray part, directly installed on the ground of the work site
Wall-mounted eye wash: only the eye wash part, no spray part, directly installed on the wall of the work site
Laboratory desktop eye wash: only the eye wash part, no spray part, directly installed in the laboratory
Sprinklers, sprinklers: only the spray part, no eye wash part, directly installed on the ground, wall or ceiling of the work site
Emergency eye wash station: equipment for providing warm water source for eye wash
Ground-type automatic emptying antifreeze eye washer: the water inlet is placed on the ground, which can automatically drain the water inside the eye washer
Buried automatic emptying antifreeze eye washer: The inlet pipe and antifreeze valve are placed under the ground frozen soil layer, which can automatically drain the water inside the eye wash device.
Electric heating eye wash device: prevent the water in the eye wash from freezing, can not improve the water temperature of the spray and eye wash
Electric heating eye wash: prevent water from freezing in the eye washer to increase the water temperature of the spray and eye wash
ADV anti-freeze eye washer: adopts advanced temperature sensing technology to prevent the water source inside the eye wash from freezing and affecting the use of eye wash
Heat-proof eye wash: adopts advanced temperature sensing technology to prevent the water source inside the eye wash from being too hot and affecting the use of eye wash
Anti-freeze and heat-proof eye wash device: adopts advanced temperature sensing technology to prevent the water source inside the eye wash device from freezing, and prevent the water source inside the eye wash device from being overheated and affecting the use of the eye wash device.

While selecting the right emergency eyewash station for your facility may appear difficult, it is really quite simple once you familiarize yourself with a few simple criteria:

ANSI and OSHA requirements
Eyewash station choices available
Flushing solutions associated with the different types of eyewash stations
