Speakman’s insulated eyewash station

NEW CASTLE, Delaware – It’s a safety manager’s ongoing headache: how to get running water for emergency eyewashes to outdoor work environments. Portable emergency eyewashes have answered that call for many, but there still remains the challenge of temperature fluctuations in outdoor, unheated, refrigerated or remote locations.

Speakman Company, the Delaware emergency eyewash and emergency shower manufacturer, announced today the newest addition to its best-selling Gravityflo line of Portable Emergency Eyewashes: the SE 4330: Heated Gravityflo Portable Eyewash.
The new Heated Gravityflo Portable Emergency Eyewash offers compliance with ANSI/ISEA Z358.1 safety standards and is UL499/CSA B22.2 certified.

The unit must always be connected to a power source and when possible, wall-mounting is suggested. The Heated Gravityflo Portable Emergency Eyewash was engineered with innovative features including:

  • 20-gallon capacity tank – one of the highest capacity portables in the market
  • Water-resistant insulating jacket with zipper for easy assembly and use
  • Digital display via LCD temperature readout

  • Exceeds the minimum 0.4 gpm flow for 15 minutes as stated by ANSI/ISEA standard
  • Comes standard with ground fault plug with reset
  • Molded plastic spray outlets
  • Pull strap activator
  • Plastic fill cap with tamper prevention
  • Signage and shelf- or wall-mount metal brackets included
