Abstract:

The CO2 absorbent canister duration of the MK-15 closed-circuit Underwater Breathing Apparatus UBA was evaluated using a resting diver scenario in 13 C water at 65 FSW. The Passive Diver Thermal Protection System PDTPS was worn during the study. Results demonstrate that the safe operational limit of the MK-15 UBA for a diver mainly at rest in 13 C water is 321 minutes. Author
