Guardian's 15 Gallon Portable Eyewash/Drench Hose Unit with Heated Orange Insulation Jacket is a self-contained heated eyewash and/or drench hose. The unit delivers over 10 gallons (37.9 litres) of water for 15 minutes, thus complying with the provisions of ANSI Z358.1-2009 for eyewashes.
It is heated and insulated to endure sustained low or freezing temperatures over long periods of time. Unit is fully freeze-resistant, and tempered, for both indoor and outdoor environments. It is ideal for use where a continuous supply of potable water is not available, especially in remote plant areas, low traffic and/or low hazard areas.
The 15-gallon stainless steel pressurized tank has built-in carrying handles, air intake fitting, pressure gauge and pressure relief valve.
The heating element is made of silicone rubber and is attached to the tank with a spring latch. The water temperature inside of the tank is regulated by an onboard thermostat set to 65°F. The total amp draw is 3.33A and delivers 400W of power, which allows the unit to operate to temperatures as low as -20 F.
The unit comes standard with a 15A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) with manual reset connected to a nine-foot-long cord.
The eyewash unit includes two GS –Plus spray heads, each with a “flip top” dust cover, internal flow control and filter. A 1/2” IPS chrome plated brass stay-open three way self draining ball valve with stainless steel flag handle. Pressure regulator controls eyewash flow to 0.65 GPM for 15 minutes.
The drench hose is a sngle GS-Plus spray head with “flip top” dust cover, internal flow control and filter. Chrome plated brass squeeze valve with stainless steel lever handle and 6 foot reinforced PVC hose.
To operate unit, fill with clean potable water and add bacteriostatic additive (supplied with unit). Additive protects against growth of bacteria, fungus, algae and acanthamoeba inside unit. After filling with water, pressurize unit to 80 PSI air pressure. If necessary, adjust pressure regulator to achieve maximum flow for fifteen minutes. Unit should be inspected regularly and water in unit should be changed at least once every six months. www.gesafety.com
