So a relatively unfashionable subject but one which is absolutely crucial to us divers, we all happily kit up, stick a reg in our mouth and go off to explore the underwater realm we all love so much, but how pure is the air in your cylinder.
Here at Scuba Blue we take air purity very seriously and have our air/compressor checked every three months......I have never taken much notice of the specs involved in our "Air Purity" tests but it struck me that I was interested in the CO2 content...... so following the most recent test I spoke to the fab people at Aquatron breathing air systems who do our air testing and discovered that the UK has some of the strictest tests in the world.
With regard to CO2 content ours is a great pass at 440.8 parts per million.........in the states you can pass with anything up to 1000 parts per million !!!!
Just for your interest the test involves Aquatron sending me a small "Crack" cylinder which is then filled directly from our compressor, this is then sent back to Aquatron who do their analysis and then send the air purity certificate.
So you can all "Breathe Easy"😂😂 safe in the knowledge that all cylinders filled at Scuba Blue are full of the freshest safest Somerset air .....also the test is done every three months to ensure standards are kept as high as they can be!!!
