Self-contained (complete by itself) safety showers are becoming more and more popular with corrosive chemical users. Many organizations now see an increased emphasis on providing workers with effective emergency treatment for exposure to corrosive chemicals, thus find the need to place compliant safety shower/eyewash equipment on site. However, these locations often have no potable water supply or where only low-flow potable water lines exist. Think about if you or your co-worker face a situation, where you need emergency treatment after chemical exposure. Now think about if there’s not enough water for the fully-compliant 15-minute treatment. Now, instead of getting the proper amounts of flushing fluid, you risk a greater chance of permanent damage.
The importance of the correct amount of flushable fluid can’t be urged enough, thus offering a self-contained safety shower with a low-level activation alarm needs serious consideration. When your safety becomes an issue with non-compliant safety showers, it’s too late.
Self-Contained Safety Shower Alarm Benefits
Rather than bearing the often-enormous expense of laying new pipe, ATS ShieldSafe™ safety showers offer a far more convenient solution to these challenging situations with a self-contained option. However, a self-contained safety shower requires verification on a weekly basis – that the flushing fluid storage tank contains sufficient fluid for proper treatment.
It’s critical that if the fluid level falls below what is required for a full treatment, the ones responsible for maintenance on safety showers give proper notification, thus a low-level alarm. An alarm generates a remote signal, which can be very helpful in providing this notification. Once the notification is received, you should take immediate action to replenish the fluid in the tank.
