Abstract:

The Kirby-Morgan KMB-8 Bandmask was tested and evaluated for comfort and its ability to supply a divers respiratory demand. Tests were run at various work rates and depths from 10 fsw to 650 fsw. The mask was found to meet the respiratory pressure requirements of MIL-R-24169A. It was found to be satisfactory for fleet use provided certain recommended minor changes in the mask design and bail-out bottle configuration are carried out. Recommended depth limits for air and He02 diving are also established. Author
