Tobin Eyewash Systems

TOBIN EYEWASH SYSTEMS  - Tobin Eye Washes are a well proven, quick and safe way to wash chemicals from eyes.  This specially designed system gives the fastest possible application combined with a liquid volume large enough for most eye accidents.

What You Should Know:

  • Chemicals in the eye can cause serious damage within 1-5 seconds
  • Washing that begins within a few seconds can therefore be decisive in minimising the damage the eye will receive
  • It is also of utmost importance that an eyewash system is easy to use and that the exposed eye is washed by a soft flow, both features are engineered into every Tobin bottle
  • The patient needs just one hand to operate the bottle and the eyewash system empties under natural pressure, the flow cannot be increased by squeezing the bottle
  • Under AS4775:2007 the Tobin Eyewash System would be classified as Supplement Equipment
  • Supplemental Equipment shall provide immediate flushing to support self-contained or plumbed equipment but shall not replace them
  • We recommend that the eyewash should be mounted adjacent to the anticipated hazard

 

Chemicals can be divided into 3 main categories:

  1. De-greasing agents.  Wash no less than 2-3 minutes
  2. Acids.  Wash upto 5 minutes and see a doctor immediatly
  3. Alkalines.  Wash for 10-20 minutes and see a doctor
