  • Air Train- The air train diffuses incoming breathing air/gas onto the face port/lens to defog and ventilate.
  • Brass Handle- Handle can be removed without breaking seals, making it quick and easy to attach accessories.
  • Defogging Steady Flow Valve- Provides an additional flow of gas into the helmet for ventilation and defogging.
  • Emergency (EGS) Valve- Supplies backup breathing gas to the diver.
  • Fiberglass and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Shell- Kirby Morgan® has over 50 years experience in composite laminations. The helmet shell is hand laid up glass fiber reinforced thermal setting polyester (fiberglass) with carbon fiber reinforcement at key points for added durability. It is light and highly impact resistant, and provides a heat/cold barrier as well as being an excellent electrical nonconductor.
  • Gas Supply Non-Return Valve- Commercially Rated™ It prevents loss of gas pressure in the event of umbilical damage.
  • Nose Block Device- Allows the diver to block the nose to equalize ears.
  • Side Block- Multi-use side block has additional ports built in to provide controlled air flow, if needed.
  • Silicone Oral Nasal Mask- Made of a superior silicone material which is hypo-allergenic and has a longer work life than latex.
  • Whisker Wings- Bubble deflecting Whisker wings keep bubbles further from face port and ears, improving visibility and decreasing internal noise.
  • Neck Dam/Yoke Assembly secures the commercial diving helmet to the commercial diver’s head and positively prevents accidental removal. The angled neck dam helps the helmet ride comfortably while working face down.
  • Low Pressure Plugis removed and replaced by a suit inflation hose when the commercial diver is wearing a dry suit.
  • Communicationsare either bare wire posts or a male Marsh Marine style waterproof connector.
  • Latch Catch Mechanismlocks the neck clamp and yoke in place.
  • Water Exhaustautomatically keeps water drained from the commercial diving helmet.
  • Kirby Morgan Quad-Valve™ Exhaust System(Patents Pending), The Kirby Morgan Quad Valve Exhaust System is a superior exhaust system with exceptionally low exhalation resistance that helps to keep the commercial diving helmet free of contaminants in polluted water. The Kirby Morgan Quad-Valve™ Exhaust System is the first exhaust that isolates the breathing system from the surrounding water with a four valve, low breathing resistance design.

Note:

The Kirby Morgan Hot Water Shroud (Part # 525-100) in conjunction with hot water to the commercial diver should be used whenever commercial diving operations are conducted using HEO2 at water temperatures less than 60°F (15.56°C) for the comfort of the commercial diver. Kirby Morgan DSI further recommends that the shroud be used in conjunction with hot water to the commercial diver whenever commercial diving operations are conducted using air or mixed gas, in waters colder than 36°F (2.22°C) to reduce the possibility of demand regulator icing.

Usually the greatest danger of demand regulator icing will be encountered on deck when the surrounding air temperature is less than 32°F (0°C). This effect is primarily due to the refrigeration effect of breathing air pressure reduction, and the addition of moisture from the commercial divers exhalation coming in contact with the topside air temperature.

If diving where the water temperature is 36°F (2.22°C) or warmer but the topside air temperature is below freezing, (32°F (0°C) icing of the demand regulator is possible. To help eliminate the possibility of freezing on the surface, warm water should be run over the exterior of the demand regulator prior to water entry, if the hot water system is not used.

Only commercial diving equipment certified and tested according to EN 250/E DIN 58 642 may be used with the Kirby Morgan SuperLite® 17B Commercial Diver's Helmet when conducting commercial diving operations in European EC compliant countries.
