Technical information

CARLOS ARBOLES, S.A. supplies high quality Showers and Eyewashes that are extremely reliable.The following are the main technical characteristics that distinguish our products.


Materials in contact with water are galvanizedsteel pipes, brass fittings and ABS reinforced plastic.We also have the ability to manufacture equipmentin stainless steel.

All our products are constructed from high qualitymaterials, where fastening is surface mounting thecomponents are always metallic.This results into a robust equipment for the mostadverse conditions

The water distribution pattern is in accordanceto all relevant standards to give a wide and smooth flow pattern.
The large Shower head diameter of 250 mm and the design of the flow holes prevent restrictedflow caused by lime scale or contamination.

We have different models based on theirinstallation, so as WALL, FLOOR, or TABLE mounted.
he equipment is supplied disassembled, itsassembly is easy and unmistakable.
We have different types of mechanisms:
Shower with a pull handle or lever.
Automatic opening and closing when. Enteringand leaving the platform.
Eyewash with a push lever, pedal, or platform operation.

One or two spray heads offer a low pressure aerated water, which flushes the face and the eyes withoutdamaging the delicate eye tissues.

The large-diameter jet reaches a 15 cm height, according to the standard. The plastic materials and roundedforms will not cause facial damage in the case of accidental contact. They include an anti-dust cover whichoperates automatically when the Eyewash unit is activated.

Anti-corrosive polyamide 11 plastic coating, in HIGH-VISIBILITY YELLOW color. This plastic coating hasa thickness of 250 to 300 microns. It has good resistance to acids, bases, sea water, oils...

The coating is not derived from petroleum, but is a raw material originating from vegetable oil, and therefore,it preserves the environment. We have a Chemical Resistance Table, which can be consulted on our webpage:

The Shower and Eyewashes include valves that are specifically designed to beused in emergency situations, since they do not become obstructed nor do they stickup after long periods of inactivity.

Optimal results after more than 100,000 cycles.

In order to prevent freezing or excess temperature in the pipes, we offer differentsolutions:

Automatic drain valvesto avoid pipe freezing.
Temperature protectionvalves, that create ableed line when thetemperatures of thesupply piping are extreme.
Thermostatic valve for thesupply of tempered water.

Our valves regulate thewater flow, regardless ofthe inlet pressure.

he Showers are regulatedat 110 l/min, and theEyewashes at 22 l/min..
Recommended pressure 2 bar.
Maximum pressure: 8 bar.Please notify us if your equipment will operate at pressures lower than 1.5 bar.

The Emergency Equipment includes:

A photoluminescence signaling plate with a green background and white text.Dimensions: 210 x 297 mm
Maintenance table and installation instructions.
Optionally, an ALARM that may provide a visual and sonorous signal when theEquipment is operated.

Our products meet or exceed the requirements::
