Abstract
The report describes the design, development, construction, and installation of a gas and water conditioning system for the dive chamber of the DCIEM Diving Research Facility. At any pressure at which the Diving Research Facility is capable of operating, the installed system can maintain the water temperature at any temperature from 2C to 35C, with a maximum deviation of + or - 0.5C and simultaneously maintain the gas temperature at any temperature in the same range with a maximum deviation of + or - 1.0C. The system also provides for the filtering of the water to 10 microns and supplies a secondary stream of heated water for divers hot water suits. The report describes the system and summarizes the development including descriptions of problems encountered in developing the system, the rationale of the various design decisions, and a brief summary of the final tests.
