Laboratory eyewash use strategy

Laboratory eyewash

Laboratory eyewash is an essential equipment for safe labor protection, because the laboratory often comes into contact with toxic and corrosive stains such as acid, alkali and organic matter. When installing, the eyewash nozzle should not be bumped with hard objects to avoid damage to the surface. Gloss, pay attention to remove the debris in the pipe, and install the eye washer nozzle.

In the case where the water pressure is not lower than 0.02 mpa, after using for a period of time, if the water output is found to be reduced, or even the water heater is turned off, the nozzle can be obtained at the nozzle of the eye wash device, and the sunscreen cover is gently unscrewed. To remove impurities, in addition, do not use too much force on the switch ball valve, gently turn it, do not screw it, do not use the handle as a handrail, eyewash should pay attention to daily maintenance, in order to increase the service life.

Eyewash should also pay attention to the following points when using:

1. When flushing other parts of the body, pull the valve lever down by hand, and the water will be automatically ejected from the sprinkler. After use, the rod should be reset upwards.
2, eye wash device is used in emergency situations, temporarily slow down the harmful substances to the body, further treatment, follow the doctor’s guidance.
3. When using the eye wash device, just flush the eye with the hand and push the valve gently. The clean water is automatically sprayed out from the eye wash nozzle. After use, the hand push valve should be reset and the dust cover should be reset.

Eyewash use method effect picture: shower head: 120-180 liters / minute; eye wash nozzle: 12-18 liters / minute eye-washing nozzle soft foam mist water flow, compared with ordinary eye wash nozzle to improve cleaning efficiency 50%, rush Wide eye coverage.


The normal use effect of the eyewash device: Under normal water pressure, after the installation and commissioning, the water discharge condition appears and can be used.

 Normal use of eyewash: Under normal conditions, the water pressure is low, but the water pressure is above 0.2Mpa. After installation and commissioning, this water condition can be used.

4. The treatment of the eye wash water pressure is too high: the water outlet state after installation and commissioning indicates that the water pressure is too high, the user does not need to open the switch to the bottom during use, and the handle push handle opens to the angle of 45-60 degrees. Normal effluent effect can occur.

5. The treatment of the water pressure of the eye wash device is too low: the water discharge state after installation and commissioning indicates that the water pressure is somewhat low, and it is necessary to check whether the water pressure and the water inlet pipe are unobstructed, and the user pushes the handle to the maximum extent.


6 Eyewasher water pressure is too low or there is foreign matter blockage treatment: This water discharge state after installation and commissioning indicates that the installation is not normal. It is necessary to check whether the water pressure and the water inlet pipe are unobstructed, the eye wash assembly, and the eye wash nozzle are blocked by foreign matter. After the foreign matter is removed as soon as possible, the eye wash device is debugged and used normally.

 

Emergency eyewash and safety shower station

Lab Eyewashes consist of different types of table mounted eyewashes that can be swing activated, back deck mounted eyewashes that activate by pulling downward, wall mounted swing down eyewash, wall mounted swing down units in recessed steel cabinets with drain pans, and swing down eye/face washes with extended arms for wheelchair accessibility.
