Safety is always a high priority – especially in environments where chemical spills are a potential threat. Emergency face/eyewash stations and safety showers are an essential component for protecting personnel and maintaining OSHA and ANSI Z358.1 compliance.
According to safety regulations, emergency drench showers and face/eyewash units must be placed within a ten-second travel time of any hazardous area to deliver tepid water to the user. Tepid water is defined as 60-100ºF (15.6-37.8ºC) and must be available for a minimum of 15 minutes at a continuous flow of at least 20 GPM.
ThermOmegaTech® provides several solutions to control the output temperature of your safety showers and face/eyewash stations: Therm-O-Mix® Station, Therm-O-Mix® Station/Water-Water Mix, ESS Hot Water Heater, freeze protection valves, and scald protection valves.
The Therm-O-Mix® Station is an instantaneous steam-fired water heater that uses only a facility’s existing steam and water supplies to produce tepid water. The unit is completely mechanical and requires no source of electricity to function, making it particularly ideal for explosion-proof industrial environments.
In facilities where steam is not readily available, the Therm-O-Mix® Station /Water-Water Mix (WWM) will provide tepid water utilizing a facility’s existing hot and cold-water supply.
The heavy-duty ESS water heater is packaged with the Therm-O-Mix® Station/WWM to supply tepid water to your emergency drench system.
Freeze and Scald protection valves should be installed on all safety showers and face/eyewash stations that could be at risk of excessive climates freezing or overheating the water lines. These valves reassure the waters lines do not freeze and personnel are protected from being scalded.
