15 Gallon Portable Eyewash/Drench Hose Unit
application: Self-contained heated eyewash and/or drench hose. Unit delivers over ten gallons (37.9 liters) of water for fifteen minutes, thus complying with the provisions of ANSI Z358.1-2009 for eyewashes. Unit 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 in-door and out-door environments. Unit 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.
tank and jacket: 15 gallon stainless steel pressurized tank. Tank has built-in carrying handles, air intake fitting, pressure gauge and pressure relief valve. Tank has approximately 10 gallons (37.9 litters) usable capacity.
heating element: 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.
ground fault plug: Unit comes standard with a 15A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) with manual reset connected to a 9 foot long cord.
eyewash unit: 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.

operation: 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. Filling instructions included.
