Decompression Chambers ( not available in Canada)
portable decompression chamber can be collapsed in
length for transport or storage, and opened to full-length when in use.
This system is designed and manufactured by a team of experienced divers
for the use of divers. It was conceived for the purpose of surface decompression,
to eliminate the need for in-water stops, and is carried as safety equipment
The lightweight, flexible patented decompression pressure hull is made
of a composite fabric with aluminum ends. When the unit is inflated
it still can be comfortably utilized in either a small diving boat or
personal aircraft in the event of an evacuation. These units are certified
to an operating pressure of 5.1 bar, assuring the capability to perform
an emergency decompression down to the maximum relief depth of 165 feet
of seawater (fsw).
The Portable Decompression Chamber can be supplied
with Built-in-Breathing Systems (BIBS) for oxygen use, with overboard
dumping of the exhaled gases. The chamber can also be provided with
a ventilation economizer that will allow for 380 minutes duration with
as little as 3 80 cubic feet SCUBA tanks. The Portable Decompression
Chamber is recommended in the 30” chamber with a 36” lock
configuration for yachts. This size has proved most practical, both
in handling and access for divers and crew. The unit comes in either
a flexible container or custom cherry boxes ready for use with the addition
of a compressed air source. Alternatively, for access to remote sites,
a unit can be accommodated in 2 separate backpack carriers. There are
many optional, custom features that can be integrated into the Portable
Decompression Chamber, so please inquire.
Circular door that locks and seals to the doorframe with a 1/8th turn,
interrupted thread, bayonet type attachment.
Viewing port ( 6’ diameter) in center of door.
Pressure gauge ( 0-60 meters of seawater) and temperature gauge.
Vent valve for controlling internal pressure complete with pressure
relief and gag valve.
Set of flexible or rigid ribs to hold the chamber open when not pressurized.
Internal safety belt for patient.
Open-cell foam mattress covered in cloth.
Pressure-resistant, battery-powered light.
External pressure reducers, hoses and fittings to supply air from standard
Six penetrations in the door frame; one for the optional BIBS input
gas; one for BIBS exhaust overboard; one for electrical connections
( telephone, life sign monitoring, etc.); and two spares.
Flexible carry case.
Six (6) lifting and fastening lugs.
Packaging for overseas shipment.
Manual – Maintenance and operating manual inclusive of decision
making flow chart for the selection of hyperbaric treatments.
Training in basic chamber operation and maintenance for up to six individuals.
One day is sufficient to familiarize personnel with set-up, preparation,
pressurization, decompression and storage of the chamber. One week is
necessary if the candidate must be certified as a chamber operator.
On request, training can be carried out on-site the vessel.
