What is ANSI compliance?
The American National Standards Institute governs the development of industrial standards for the United States and across the world. The specific regulations that govern emergency eye wash products (ANSI Z358.1) set out guidelines for water quality, temperature and flow rate, as well as product installation and maintenance procedures. See our guide to ANSI regulations for more information.
We also provide a range of fixed eye wash stations, including wall mounted eye wash stations, pedestal eye wash stations, and freestanding eye wash units.
One of the biggest benefits of portable eyewash station is that absolutely no plumbing is needed. Depending on what brand and model you choose, two of the most popular portable eyewash options include gravity-fed units (often constructed of durable plastic), or pressurized portable eyewash tanks. Gravity-fed portable eyewash stations are filled with clean tap water and require added eyewash preservatives. Haws 9082 eyewash preservative keeps water clean for up to 90 days and helps to protect against the growth of bacteria, fungus, algae, acanthamoeba and other impurities that can form in portable eyewash units. Pressurized portable eyewash tanks feature easy to transport stainless steel construction and are also filled with clean water and bacteriostatic additives. Once the units are filled, they are pressurized to a specific PSI air pressure. Depending on your make or model, portable eyewash tanks should be inspected regularly and water should be changed as noted.
Although the majority of your portable eyewash stations lifespan will be sitting by idle, when an emergency occurs, gravity-fed stations have to be ready to operate at a moments notice. These units feature easy, pull-down activation arms to deliver an instant 15-minute flush for the user. Here are some specifications for our most people gravity-fed eyewash units
