The Bel-Art Scienceware 248510000 eyewash bottle can be placed at a worker's station to provide immediate emergency flushing of particles from the eye. It is made of low-density polyethylene (LDPE) for squeezability and resistance to chemicals. The built-in eyecup has a cap to prevent contamination of the eyecup. Since the bottle is squeezed to force the solution out, the person being treated can be vertical or horizontal. The bottle holds 32 ounces (1,000mL) of pre-mixed, pH-balanced, physiological saline solution (sold separately). This emergency eyewash bottle supplements primary eyewash stations that meet the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard Z358.1-2009 for emergency eyewash and shower equipment.
Personal eyewash bottles supplement a facility's eyewash stations by providing portable access to an emergency eye-flushing saline mixture formulated to approximate human tears. Timely application of eyewash can reduce the damage caused by eye exposure to foreign or hazardous materials. Portable eyewash bottles can provide emergency relief on the way to permanent plumbed or gravity-fed eyewash stations.
