How big is that horse your on thenIts worth noting (as I have seen the two terms/measurements mixed incorrectly by DIR divers on this site) that there is a distinct difference between bars and atmospheres.
1 bar (10 metres of seawater) is equal to 14.5 psi, where an atmosphere (33ft depth of seawater) equals 14.7psi.
Call me Mr Pedantic if you will but we are talking physics that have a direct influence on a divers well-being, so its worth getting it right, right? Especially when we are talking mixed-gas diving, 'ball-park' figures just aren't good enough.
PS; Sorry for going-on but I do this for a living and I feel every diver incident/fatality like a stab to the heart - most can be avoided and DIR isn't DIR enough. End of rant...
About half a metre higher than that Greek thing:teeth:How big is that horse your on then
shitting my pants, rings a bell i think i have the right digs , :teeth:I can tell you, but I am a bit confused as to whether you have the right person. I have had a little wobble in a 92m pit, but I didn't get deeper than 20-odd metres. I presume it's someone else, or you've heard the wrong story. Pluys my story doesn't involve a dump valve. It did involve me shitting my pants a bit, but it worked out ok.
Er, lets fink... if you multiply 23 Oh-2's by 92 pits, divide by the mudd then take away the number of cylinders in a twin-set... its 3.26 bar/47.27psi/3.21ATA/18.995Yen or 1/2 a bushellso digs can you tell me the ppo2 of a nitrox 32% in a muddy pit at 92m
with a dump valve that is having is way with you
Use psi bar ats , what ever you like , :teeth:
