ny place where there’s a risk of eye contamination or injury, such as a lab, workshop, or even a home where potentially harmful chemicals are used.
The key features of this eyewash station are:
In the package, you’ll find the necessary adapters, a high-visibility identification sign, an inspection tag, and pop-off dust covers.
The eyewash station is hand-activated and intended for faucet mounting. When installed and used properly, it complies with the ANSI Standard Z358.1, and the manufacturer offers a limited warranty.
Remember, while this device can provide immediate relief and flush contaminants from the eyes, it’s not a replacement for medical attention in case of severe eye injuries. Always seek professional medical help if you have serious chemical exposure or eye injuries.
Begin by assembling all necessary cleaning supplies. This includes a mild detergent, a soft brush, and clean, warm water. Ensure that the water supply to the faucet is disconnected to prevent potential scalding during cleaning.
Remove the yellow plastic protective covers from the twin soft-flow eyewash heads. These covers are essential for protecting the eyewash heads from dust and contaminants. However, they need to be removed during cleaning to ensure the eyewash heads are thoroughly cleaned.
Apply a mild detergent to the soft brush and gently scrub all accessible parts of the eyewash station, including the sprayhead assembly and the activation handle. The chrome-plated brass of the S19-200B should be cleaned with care to maintain its bright, mirror finish.
After cleaning, rinse the eyewash station thoroughly with warm water. Make sure to remove all detergent residue, as it may interfere with the operation of the eyewash station and potentially cause irritation if it enters the eyes.
Prepare a disinfectant solution suitable for potable water systems as per the manufacturer’s instructions. Remember, the eyewash station will be supplying water that will come into contact with the eyes, so it is essential to use a safe and effective disinfectant.
Apply the disinfectant solution to all parts of the eyewash station, ensuring that it comes into contact with all surfaces. Pay particular attention to the eyewash heads and the interior of the sprayhead assembly, as these are the parts that will be in direct contact with the eyes.
Allow the disinfectant solution to stand for the recommended contact time. This is typically about 10-20 minutes but can vary depending on the disinfectant used. This contact time is necessary to ensure that all potential pathogens are killed.
After the contact time has elapsed, rinse the eyewash station thoroughly with clean, warm water. Make sure to remove all traces of the disinfectant solution. Once rinsed, allow the eyewash station to air dry.
After cleaning and disinfection, reconnect the water supply to the faucet. Ensure that the supply is tempered water to prevent scalding during use. Test the eyewash station by activating it and observing the water flow. The S19-200B model assures a safe, steady water flow under varying water supply conditions from 30 to 90 PSI.
Regular cleaning and disinfection are vital for the effective operation and safety of the S19-200B Faucet Mount Eyewash Station. By following these steps, you can ensure that your eyewash station remains a reliable and safe tool for eye washing in the event of exposure to harmful substances.
