Mobile solar safety shower attracts international attention

Designed for the roughest, remotest and toughest conditions on the planet, Enware’s Australian made safety showers and eyewash stations are garnering international attention.

Launching overseas this month, Enware Australia’s EM850 relocatable self-contained safety shower with inbuilt eye wash station is already a staple on the sites of many resources, engineering and project management companies across Queensland and Western Australia

Featuring loading/unloading access for forklift tines or cranes the solar shower uses non-absorbent insulation to insulate its 1350L tank.

Enware business development manager-safety, Allan Lane said the unit eliminates the “need for an integrated cooling system”, making it suitable for hot remote installations in places such as Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

“Our first overseas system has already been delivered to a mine site operating in Mauritania, West Africa and we are looking forward to building on this initial sale in the near future,” he said.

“The first showing of the EM850, along with that of the broader range of Enware safety systems at recent trade events in the Middle East, generated a very positive response.”

The EM850 incorporates a water storage capacity to operate both emergency shower and eyewash to international safety standards conforming to both ANSI Z 358.1 2009 and AS4775-2007 Standards.

Designed for service with mining, oil and gas, defence and heavy industry applications where services are limited, or non-existent, the EM850 is ideal as it requires no mains power or plumbing connection.

The EM850 incorporates 40W solar panels with maintenance free durable batteries as well as dedicated shower and eye wash pumps.

The full stainless steel enclosure also maximises lifespan and failsafe operation in harsh environments even in ambient temperatures exceeding 45C.

The system offers immediate response to situations where serious injury can occur if eye and skin accidents are not treated within seconds.

The inbuilt LED display shows water level, battery power and water temperature while the self-monitoring alert system is visible from a distance.
