Abstract:

A diesel engine driven high-pressure breathing air compressor, MAKO model KA-51-DF, was evaluated by the Navy Experimental Diving Unit to determine its suitability for Navy use. Results of the 100-hour endurance test showed that the portable compressor delivers breathing air at an average charge rate of 4.8 CFM, charging twin 71.2 cu. ft. and twin 90 cu. ft. scuba tanks in 25 and 31 minutes respectively. The unit is easily maintained, sturdily constructed, and economical in diesel fuel consumption.
