Arctic emergency tank showers from Showers and Eyebaths Services have been certified as meeting requirements for the supply of environmental protection equipment used in Russian oil and gas fields.

The tank shower units have achieved Russia’s GOST R-EX Proof certification.

They have been specifically designed to withstand extreme conditions and have been in operation on Sakhalin Island, a petroleum zone in Russia.

Craig Yates, managing director of Showers and Eyebaths, said: ‘We have had to prove our Arctic units can actually withstand Arctic conditions.

‘Siberian winters are characterised by temperatures as low as -45C, cyclones, heavy snow and powerful storms, so operatives working in these conditions need to know they have the backup of reliable decontamination facilities in an emergency.

‘The units are heated inside, have spring-loaded doors and are lit internally.

‘The water supply is contained in a top tank, which means you don’t have to site it near a mains water supply and the unit guarantees the required 15 minutes of tepid water.

‘The tank is also manufactured in corrosion-resistant material and has its own heating element, all of which meets GOST R regulated health and safety standards.

‘These units can be fitted with an internal eyebath, optional alarms and lighting.

‘Our heated changing-room facility can be added as an option,’ he added.

Worldwide there is an ever-increasing demand made on the health, safety and welfare of employees as well as oil and petrochemical industries seeking more inhospitable and remote environments in which to extract natural resources. Therefore Showers & Eyebaths Services has developed the technology and specialist engineering skills to design and manufacture emergency showers that provide a guaranteed 15 minutes of tepid water as stipulated by ANSI Z358.1-2009 and that are ideal for external use from -20ºC to +40ºC. Its arctic units are GOST approved and are certified for temperatures ranging down to – 40ºC and up to +40ºC.

Importantly, water contained in the header tanks of the Showers & Eyebaths’ tank showers can be controlled at a nominal 17–18°C with its own robust heating element, keeping the water temperature to below the threshold of Legionella thereby eliminating its proliferation.

All products are designed to last 20 years, if they have been serviced and maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.

The company’s innovative approach to workforce safety and the demands made by industry worldwide is reflected in the diverse contracts the company is able to meet. From its UK head office it supplies to marine-based operations — including mega tankers and ships, onshore and offshore oil rigs, pharmaceutical and petrochemical, oil and gas fields, laboratories, schools and universities. The company also manufactures one of the only fully portable safety showers of its kind in the world which is being used extensively by the construction industry in particular due to the temporary nature of building and construction work.

The company’s employees have more than 100 years’ experience in the manufacture and design of safety showers, and provide full technical support. Its service department ensures units out in the field are maintained and operating effectively, as the company has built its reputation on the quality and performance of its products.
