New emergency shower launched at Abu Dhabi show
Spill containment specialist, Empteezy, is launching a new emergency shower at the world's most influential oil and gas exhibition and conference in Abu Dhabi this week - ADIPEC.
Chemical or flammable liquid containment is a necessity on any trading site, primarily to ensure personnel and equipment safety. Accidents inevitably happen as a result of both controllable and uncontrollable variables so it is important to provide decontamination facilities on site which are easily accessible.
To ensure the fastest possible decontamination time, Empteezy has designed a wrap-around shower which is activated by walking on to a grid mesh. The u-shaped encased structure provides a thorough decontamination in the event of human contact with hazardous liquids, by distributing 75.7 litres of clean water per minute onto the body and 1.5 litres of eyewash per minute. This design limits contamination potential, by encasing the individual and decreasing the chance of the hazardous material escaping outside of the confined area.
Ensuring safe decontamination across all climates, the wrap-around emergency safety shower regulates the temperature of the water according to external weather conditions. This ensures the correct temperature is maintained for the required time, allowing the individual to be safely cleansed.
Providing an enhanced product to both, users and the environment, the shower can filter and recycle the water, ensuring a constant bank of water ready for use.
"We are extremely proud of this latest innovation," says Empteezy founder and managing director Bruce Wishart.
"The wrap-around shower has been developed to be fully complies with ANSI Z358.1 - the gold standard for emergency showers and eye washes. It makes total sense to showcase the shower here at ADIPEC, as having first class decontamination facilities for staff in the oil and gas sector is a must for companies who have a duty of care to their employees."
Founded in 1986, Empteezy designs and manufactures products to ensure the safe handling and storage of liquids. From absorbents and spill kits to fully compliant storage containers, emergency tank and safety showers and waste handling skips, plus around 400 other products, Empteezy helps companies comply with legislation by implementing the best oil and chemical storage solutions.
With products tailored to meet a variety of working environment requirements, including industrial, commercial, military, marine and education, Empteezy produces much of its product portfolio in its own factories, making it perfectly placed to meet the spill containment and control standards of businesses across the globe.
