Abstract
A CUMA Surface Supplied Gas Panel (CUMA SSGP) designed by Fullerton Sherwood Engineering Limited (FSEL) was purchased and modified to support 3 divers in the open circuit diving mode, i.e., either hookah, SL-17 or AGA full-facemask, as well as two divers using surface supplied CUMA. EDU was tasked to evaluate the reconfigured panel with the intention to determine if a single panel could be used to safely meet the needs of both open and closed-circuit light-weight breathing gas supply systems. The reconfigured panel was evaluated for open circuit and semi-closed circuit surface supplied diving in May 95. This evaluation was conducted in 3 phases: (1) design review, (2) unmanned functional trials and (3) manned dives.
