Title: U.S.N. Procedures for Testing the Breathing Characteristics of Open Circuit Scuba Regulators
Author: Reimers, SD
Abstract: Military Specifications, MIL-R-24169A (Single-Hose) and MIL-R-19558A (Double-Hose) list the specifications which open-circuit SCUBA regulators proposed for U.S. Naval service must meet. The Navy Experimental Diving Unit is the government agency which tests the breathing resistance characteristics of proposed SCUBA regulators for conformance with the applicable military specification. The procedures and standards used by NAVXDIVINGU in the testing of open-circuit SCUBA regulators and their relation to the appropriate military specifications are described. Also discussed are changes being proposed in those procedures and standards and changes recommended in the Military Specifications themselves.
