Tobin Eyewash System

Effective, Sterile And Safe Eyewashes For Industrial Use

Tobin's Eyewash Systems are a well proven, quick and safe way to wash chemicals from the eyes. This specially designed system gives fast application and a volume large enough for most eye accidents.

Within Arms' Reach

Chemicals in the eye cause serious damage within 1-5 seconds. Washing that begins within a few seconds can be decisive in minimising eye damage. A temporarily blinded person trying to reach an eye wash a few metres away requires presence of mind, a good sense of direction and an obstacle free passage. With Tobin an eyewash bottle can be within arms’ reach.

Controlled Flow

Tobin's bottle is constructed to empty under natural pressure, giving a soft flow. The eye is washed by a soft flow consisting of 6 tiny streams. A damaged eye must not be washed with a hard/sharp jet. When the bottom air vent is opened a patient cannot increase the flow by squeezing the bottle. A 1 litre bottle gives approximately 3 minutes washing time.


Uninterrupted washing over a long period is particularly important. The 5 bottle system gives approximately 15 minutes of flow. Further bottles can be taken from other stands if required. In Australia this system is considered supplementary support and may not replace the need for a primary eye wash station as outlined in AS4775.


Bottles can easily be removed from a stand and taken along during transportation to a doctor. It is very easy to open bottles by hand. It is possible to control the flow by placing the thumb over the hole on the bottom of the bottle.

Important Safety Features and Instructions

Simple to use:

  1. Break eye wash outlet
  2. Open air vent at the base of the bottle
  3. Hold eye lid open
  4. Hold bottle above eye
  5. 3 minutes of continual flow per bottle

The bottle hangs by its cap. To open, simply break off the cap. An unopened bottle can be removed / replaced in the stand at will. An open bottle cannot be replaced in the stand.


The blow moulded bottle has no moving parts or mechanical parts which can malfunction. The bottle is simple to open and easy to use.


The bottle is designed to stop people saving unused liquid or refilling the bottle with other liquid. This protects the integrity of the saline solution in Tobin eyewash bottles.


The fact that the bottle is disposable is a very important safety feature. Sterile liquid must not be saved in an open bottle. The Tobin bottle cannot be refilled. A safe sterile eyewash container must not be re-usable.
