Pure Flow 1000® offers self-contained, low-maintenance emergency eye care

Patented eyewash station delivers Eyesaline® Solution

SMITHFIELD, R.I. (Feb. 19, 2003) – Are Your Eyewash Stations in Compliance with Current Emergency Eyewash Regulations?  ANSI Standards dictate that Fifteen-Minute primary eyewash devices “shall be in accessible locations that require no more than 10 seconds to reach.”  The standard further states that Fifteen-Minute primary eyewash devices must be immediately adjacent to severe caustic and chemical hazards.

The Pure Flow 1000 meets ANSI Z358.1-1998 Eyewash and Shower Standard, and offers users a more comfortable alternative to flush for a full 15 minutes without the irritation that can occur with plumbed tap water stations – which can contain contaminants and bacteria.

The Pure Flow 1000 Emergency Eyewash Station from Fendall® provides a full ANSI approved emergency eyewash, without high maintenance or costly plumbing.

“Our patented design delivers Fendall’s Eyesaline Solution rather than water, which can pose significant threats to injured eye tissue,” said Andrew Beaudoin, product communications specialist for BacouDalloz. “Fendall’s Eyesaline is a physiologically correct solution designed to match human tears.”

In emergency situations, workers can easily locate the highly-visible, green Pure Flow 1000. Sure-grip handles provide instant activation as the dust cover rotates downward exposing a sturdy space for head and arms. Then, PureFlow 1000 delivers a soft ribbon of Eyesaline at ambient temperature, and the constant flow rate permits thorough flushing. While some gravity-fed units decline in fluid pressure, which reduces the flow rate and height of the flushing stream, Pure Flow 1000’s flow meets the required 0.4 gpm for the entire 15-minute cycle.

Pure Flow 1000, SEI certified to meet ANSI Z358.1-1998, features easy installation and maintenance with:

No plumbing necessary, system mounts easily with one bracket

24-month cartridge life – four times longer than many other primary self-contained eyewash stations

Self-contained fluid cartridge requires less than five minutes to replace

Waste fluid captured for easy disposal

Eyesaline Solution is contained in replaceable delivery modules that remain sealed until activated

Easy-to-read warning signs show service requirements and save maintenance and inspection time
