How to Choose Eyewash Station Scientifically

Currently on the market there is a wide range of eyewash station, including domestic product and imported product. The imported product structure may not conform to the Chinese ergonomics, we can choose the improved product which can adapt to the Chinese. Eyewash station and eluent are divided into eye wash, face wash, shower and compound type. In addition, ANSIZ358.1-2004 provides that the drench hose can be used as a replacement for the eye washe station or composite eye wash station, but can not replace the rinser. Drench hose is a useful addition to the eyewash station and the rinser, especially for laboratories and other places.

Portable eyewash station is mainly used in workplaces where there is no fixed source of water or where mobile work is required. 


The main materials of the eyewash station and shower are stainless steel, copper and engineering plastics, which should be selected according to different job sites. The imported products are generally made of ABS engineering plastics. The domestic eyewash station and the gonorrhea manufacturers basically use 304 stainless steel, which meets the drinking water standard and can resist the general chemical corrosion.

But for the strong acid such as hydrochloric acid and sulfuric acid, strong base such as sodium hydroxide, potassium hydroxide and chloride, fluoride and other strong corrosive environment, ordinary stainless steel is difficult to resist, where requires imported stainless steel or brass material for ABS or stainless steel for anti-corrosion. As for the north cold area, it is also necessary to consider the conditions such as low water temperature or even freezing in winter, which can be used by manual emptying or foot emptying and more advanced automatic empty-emptying eyewash station to prevent the water pipe from freezing; it can also use electric heating or electric heat tracing equipment to make the temperature of the outlet water temperature meet the proper requirement .
