Abstract:

The analysis compares the cost effectiveness of reclaiming helium from the Navy Experimental Diving Units NEDU Ocean Simulation Facility OSF Hyperbaric Chamber Complex using a Helium Reclamation System manufactured by DIVETEC Systems, Inc. to purchasing pure helium from the U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Mines. The cost of electrical power, maintenance and upgrade of the Helium Reclaim System is considered along with the effects of various inflation rates. A discounted cash flow analysis is provided.
