The Honeywell Fendall Porta Stream I self-contained eyewash station can be mounted on a wall, stand, or mobile cart for placement near most workplace eye hazards. It provides six minutes of uninterrupted flushing for removing dust and particles. This eyewash station holds up to six gallons of flushing solution, which can be pre-mixed saline solution, buffered saline concentrate diluted with water, or additive with water (all three sold separately). The station comes with an 8-ounce bottle of water additive. The gravity fed flow starts immediately after the nozzle strap is pulled off, leaving the hands free to hold the eyelids open. The nozzles cover a wide area around the eyes for effective removal of dust and particles. The station measures 22-1/2 x 15-1/2 x 13-1/2 inches (H x W x D). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) The operating instructions on the station are in English, and the instructions on the additive bottle are in English and Spanish (Mexico). This self-contained eyewash station supplements primary stations that meet the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard Z358.1-2009 for emergency eyewash and shower equipment.
Eyewash stations provide for emergency flushing of the eyes to remove chemicals or materials that can cause injury. They are placed near potential eye hazards in workplace environments for quick access, and can be either plumbed devices that draw tap water from a facility's plumbing or self-contained units with a supply of gravity-fed flushing solution that can be wall mounted or placed on mobile stands or carts for portability. Eyewash stations have a pair of nozzles that direct the flushing fluid upward at both eyes simultaneously, maintaining a constant flow rate and stream height. The flushing fluid used in portable stations is typically a preserved, physiological saline solution that must be periodically replaced. Eyewash stations are required by government agencies responsible for occupational safety, such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and are found in industrial facilities, construction sites, and hospitals, among others.
