Abstract:

The flatus was tested by a series of dives on different mixtures injected at various rates. The evaluation produced the following conclusions 1 The apparatus was found to conform to predicted performance for its basic class consequently it can perform satisfactorily for any type of diving within depth and time limits for the mixture used 2 It can meet interim UDU and EODU requirements 3 It could become the safest mixed-gas apparatus available 4 It should be made sturdier and then be evaluated for its maximum capabilities 5 It should be given full-scale field for UDU and EODU use.
