self-contained safety shower and eyewash featuring solar battery charging for use even in the remotest parts of Australasia is being introduced by Enware Australia.

The self-contained relocatable unit - which features loading/unloading access for forklift tines or cranes – had a highly successful first showing at the Safety In Action Show in Melbourne from April 17-19 and will be displayed at the safety shows in Perth in June and Sydney in October.

Enware Technical Specification Specialist and Team Leader at the Safety in Action Show, Mr Allan Lane, said the first showing of the new relocatable shower and of the broader new Enware safety shower range generated a very positive response among a knowledgeable and high quality audience.

The unit incorporates a water storage capacity to operate both emergency shower and eyewash to AS4775-2007 requirements, and does not need mains power or plumbing connection

Designed for service with mining, oil and gas, defence and heavy industry applications where services are limited, the shower and eyewash ensure optimum water coverage to quickly remove contaminants and irritants from the face, eyes and body – recognising that, with eye injuries in particular, seconds saved in delivering treatment can prevent serious injuries that would otherwise occur.

Developed for reliable performance even in ambient temperatures exceeding 45 deg c, the unit features a heavy stainless steel enclosure with stainless steel construction throughout for maximum lifespan and failsafe operation in harsh environments.  

The system operates from a self-monitoring fully independent power supply comprising:

-   A robust battery and dual pump system developed by Enware, which is Australia’s largest emergency shower and eyewash manufacturer, with 30 years of proven product reliability in harsh environments

-  Two solar panel modules connected to a regulator to ensure the two maintenance-free batteries are always ready to go. Built-in battery monitoring helps to achieve maximum cell lifespan.

-  Supplied standard with water level, water temperature and battery supply indication gauges, Enware can also build units to suit the needs of individual industries.
