A solar-powered safety shower with eyewash recently introduced in Australia by Enware Australia is now ready for an international launch.
The tough and reliable Australian manufactured safety shower and eyewash featuring solar battery charging for use in some of the world’s remotest and harshest conditions is already in use by leading resources, engineering and project management companies in Queensland and Western Australia.
The EM850 relocatable self-contained safety shower with eye wash from Enware Australia also features loading/unloading access for forklift tines or cranes.
Allan Lane, business development manager - Safety at Enware explains that the solar shower uses non-absorbent insulation to insulate its 1350L tank, eliminating the need for an integrated cooling system, and making it very suitable for hot remote installations in places such as Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
Enware recently delivered its first overseas system to a mine site operating in Mauritania, West Africa. The EM850, along with the broader range of Enware safety systems was also showcased at recent trade events in the Middle East, generating a very positive response from a knowledgeable audience.
The EM850 solar safety showers incorporate sufficient water storage capacity to operate both emergency shower and eyewash to international safety standards conforming to ANSI Z 358.1 2009 and AS4775-2007 Standards.
The EM850 is ideal for mining, oil and gas, defence and heavy industry applications where services are limited, or non-existent, as it requires no mains power or plumbing connection.
The EM850 safety shower incorporates 40W solar panels with maintenance-free durable batteries as well as dedicated shower and eye wash pumps. Its fully stainless steel enclosure maximises lifespan and ensures failsafe operation in harsh environments even in ambient temperatures exceeding 45°C. An LED display shows water level, battery power and water temperature while the self-monitoring alert system is visible from a distance.
