Hydration and Electrolyte Replacement in the Winter

Hydration is just as important in the winter as it is in the summer.  Realizing that you are dehydrated when it is cold outside is more of a challenge.  We perspire underneath the layers of clothing that keep us warm in the winter.  Perspiration is absorbed by our clothing and we think we sweat only when it is hot outside.  That is so far from the truth!  When in an industrial setting in the winter months we need to be more aware of hydration.  We tend to drink less and dehydration is less obvious.  We are more prone to accidents in the workplace while operating machinery or working at a job site when we are dehydrated.  Be aware of this possibility and remember that the temperature outside is not as important as the temperature inside of your body.  To combat dehydration, look at the All Natural Sword Electrolyte Replacement products here! 


Heat Trace Emergency Shower

Heat Trace Emergency Showers

A Heat Traced Emergency Shower is necessary in cold and freezing environments where a combination shower is needed in case of chemical splashes on the body.


A heat trace emergency shower offer protection in freezing temperatures.  They should be used when the temperature falls below freezing and are designed for outdoor use and also in unheated buildings.   For optimal performance, the supply line for the shower should be freeze protected because water expands as it freezes and the line can expand to break the pipes or block or clog the system.

The Heat Trace Cable Wraps Around the Pipes to Keep Them Warm
A heat trace emergency shower has a heat trace cable that will protect the unit from freezing.  The heat trace cable is wrapped around the piping in order to regulate the temperature of the water inside.  The pipes are generally insulated with polyethylene foam and then wrapped in ABS plastic that has sealed seams.  This type of shower requires an electric source that can be supplied from either the top or the bottom.
