Abstract:

To evaluate the performance of the U.S. Divers KMB-10 Bandmask, it was tested by the Navy Experimental Diving Unit in Chamber C. The bandmask was tested using a volume of 2 liters set at 20 bpm. At the request of the test engineer, who noted a shortage of air supply to the mask at 100-psig overbottom pressure, an increase was made to 180 psig. The test engineer considered the KMB-10 capable of performing well at this setting.
