Hughes QS1200 Quick Ship Tank Showers

 

Tank Shower Range


Hughes Safety Showers manufacture a range of heavy-duty Emergency Tank Showers for use when tepid water is required or a constant supply cannot be guaranteed.

These units can be used where there is a problem with insufficient water pressure or inadequate flow rate. This improved range incorporates models to suit a wide range of situations.

The outdoor types are heated and pre-insulated to prevent freezing during conditions of frost, whereas the indoor or tropical versions are insulated but without the heating to ensure a steady temperature is maintained.

 

Specification


Incorporating an insulated 320 gallon tank with rectangular hollow section frame in Galvanized Mild Steel. The frames are designed and built to be earthquake-proof and conform to the California Building Code 1998 Chapter 16, Division 1.

Available with GRP outer casing in white. Shown with ANSI standard internally mounted Eye/Facewash Fountain.

Models available:

• EXP-MH-14K/1200 - Immersion heated, pre-insulated and jacketed.


On the heated version an integral immersion heater, controlled by a dual safety thermostat, maintains the water in the tank at a constant temperature to deliver a guaranteed flow of tepid water for in excess of 15 minutes, even when the mains supply has been disrupted. The shower is activated when the casualty pushes the Panic Bar or stands on the optional Foot Panel. The Panic Bar incorporates an integral test handle as standard.

Hughes Safety Showers Continuous Improvement Program

As part of the Hughes Safety Showers continuous improvement program we have introduced new measures in both the manufacture and servicing of our Safety Showers to control the growth and spread of bacteria. All Tanks are coated in CliniCoat as part of our hygiene and infection control protocols. When CliniCoat is applied to the surface it forms a Self-Sanitizing Treatment (SST) to protect against bacteria, Virus and Fungus, Treated surfaces do not require re-application, however they should be regularly cleaned using our approved protocols.


Benefits and Standards

  • Non toxic
  • Non-leaching, can be used on food preparation surfaces
  • Manufactured under EC Directives
  • Odorless
  • Meets BS EN ISO Standards
  • Strong chemical bonding process

 

Hydroclenz - Hughes Water Treatment Module (Recommended with this safety shower)

 

To improve water quality and protect against legionella within the tank Hughes Safety Shower offers an optional water treatment Module – Hydroclenze. The module contains a combination of active ceramic and noble metal media (NOT CHEMICAL) They provide constant protection against infestations of pathogenic bacteria in water treatment systems. Immersed in water, the complex integral electrolytic activity of the ceramic media produces constant oxidising, while the noble metal in the form of a fine matrix format produces ionisation.

 

  • Constant protection against legionella
  • Inhibits harmful pathogens
  • Improves water quality
  • Cost-effective alternative to chemicals and UV treatments
  • Simple to fit
  • Reduced maintenance cost
  • No power required
