Independent Safety Shower

The Tank Showers from Matcon are a self-supporting Safety Shower and Eyebath. The reservoir on the upper part will be filled with water and can be heated or cooled (chilled). Many options are possible, so that you can obtain a unit as you require. The Tank Showers, are just as our other models Safety Showers and Eyebaths, to be able to be supplied Flame proof /ATEX, but also as a Normal zone unit.

Tank Showers can be installed onto a fixed water supply, but this is not really necessary. When the reservoir is filled, the Tank Shower is operational and ready for use. Again a fixed water supply is not a necessity, but you have to make sure that the reservoir is filled.

The Tank Shower scan be supplied with an immersion heater which makes sure that the water will be brought to a pleasant temperature and also makes sure that de unit is also Frost protected and suitable for outdoor use. We also have the possibility to supply a unit for warm climates (like tropical climates). Herewith we are able to cool down the temperature of the water, by means of a “chiller” so that in these cases also a pleasant water temperature can be guaranteed.
