|The Kirby Morgan 37 Commercial Diving Helmet continues with a long tradition of providing the highest quality, and superior performance for commercial diving helmets. The Kirby Morgan Commercial Divers Helmet 37 is very similar to the Kirby Morgan Superlite 27 Commercial Divers Helmet but it has a larger shell and includes the new Kirby Morgan Quad Valve Exhaust System. The new Kirby Morgan Quad-Valve Exhaust System, which retrofits most previous Kirby Morgan Commercial Divers Helmets, has less breathing resistance than the older single valve exhaust while providing an extremely dry commercial diving hat. The Kirby Morgan Quad-Valve Exhaust System is recommended for commercial diving in biologically contaminated water. Kirby Morgan’s SuperFlow regulator is a proven design that provides excellent breathing characteristics over a wide range of depths.
The Kirby Morgan Commercial Dive Helmet 37 is one of the most popular designs in the commercial diving world. It’s considered the standard of the commercial diving industry. Choose the Kirby Morgan Commercial Diving Helmet 37 if you want a rugged commercial diving helmet with a traditional design.
Commercial divers can download the manual for the Kirby Morgan Commercial Dive Helmet 37 by going to theLINKS section. This will take the commercial diver to the Kirby Morgan webpage where the manual can be downloaded chapter by chapter free of charge.
Warning: Before attempting any diving in any type of contaminated water, a complete commercial diving and topside course in hazardous materials emergencies should be completed. The commercial divers and the topside team must be properly trained and have the proper safety equipment. All commercial diving helmets and suits can leak water under certain conditions. Commercial divers should use extreme caution when diving in contaminated waters.
|The Kirby Morgan 37 commercial diving helmet has been tested and conforms to the performance requirements as set forth in Annex II of Directive 89/686/EEC and, as far as applicable, the EN 250:2000, EN 250/A1:2006 and EN 15333-1:2008 (class B). It is fully CE marked with demand regulator SuperFlow 350 and oral nasals P/N 510-690 and P/N 510-747.
Use at water temperatures below 33°F (1oC) requires use of Kirby Morgan Hot Water Shroud (P/N 525-100) and hot water.
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 hot water 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 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 equipment certified and tested according to EN 250/E DIN 58 642 may be used with the Kirby Morgan 37 commercial diving helmet when conducting commercial diving operations in European EC compliant countries.
The commercial diver’s umbilical assembly should be composed of good quality diving hose that meets industry standards. Generally, gas hose will be married to the communications wire, pneumofathometer hose, and strength member in a manner that will allow the strength member to receive all the strain. There are also good quality umbilicals available that are assembled at the factory using a twisted method which does not require marrying. Regardless of the system used, the commercial diver’s umbilical is the commercial divers life line and should always be of excellent quality and maintained carefully.
