- Eye and Face
Guardian Equipment has two basic models of portable eyewash stations suitable for temporary use or where there is no plumbed water available. The G1540 is an economical all-polyethylene design that is easily deployed at indoor locations and the G1562 features a rugged stainless "beer keg" design tested in the toughest real world locations. Both models are available with an optional electrically-heated insulating jacket to provide freeze resistance in cold climates.
Regardless of model, portable units must have a bacteriostatic additive to prevent the growth of bacteria, fungus, algae, and acanthamoeba. These stations should be tested/flushed weekly for 15 seconds and topped off with potable water. Every 6 months or after use, the unit should be drained, cleaned and another bottle of G1540BA additive added.
