Abstract:

A divers heating hose is used to transport heated sea water from the surface to a diver to provide him with thermal protection. At present no criteria exist for determining the suitability of a given hose for this application. This report describes how requirements of hot water heating systems were used to define hose evaluation criteria. These criteria were then applied to findings of a comprehensive survey of commercially available hoses. As a result, a number of hoses are identified as suitable for diver heating. Author
