15 Gallon Portable Eyewash/Drench Hose Unit
Self-contained heated eyewash and/or drench hose. Unit delivers over ten gallons (37.9 liters) of water for fifteen minutes, thus complying with the provisions of ANSI Z358.1-2014 for eyewashes. Unit is heated and insulated to endure sustained low or freezing temperatures over long periods of time. Unit is fully freeze-resistant, and tempered, for both in-door and out-door environments. Unit is ideal for low traffic areas, where installation of plumbed equipment is not cost effective.
