Safety showers are crucial to the safety of those that work in close proximity to corrosive chemicals. While the law mandates these devices, not all systems provide the same level of protection. Our goal was to assist our client in exceeding the minimum requirements to provide maximum safety for their employees.
Implementing new safety showers was much more involved than just running water to predetermined locations. It began by installing heated storage tanks that would maintain a constant water temperature throughout the range of external temperature fluctuations. Shower stations were then designed and installed within the current refinery layout. Finally, the delivery pipes were insulated and heat traced to each station, providing warm water and automated control for optimum safety.
