SMP have recently finished manufacturing two HP breathing air banks for a European client. Both of these HP banks hold 4 cylinders, and each cylinder can hold a volume of 140ltr. The cylinders can operate at pressures up to a maximum of 300 Bar. The system is CE/TPED and UKCA certified.
The cylinders are connected with isolation valves, shut off valves and safety valves. Both banks are fitted with a panel to allow monitoring of air flow and pressure. The panel also includes pressure reducers to accommodate the chamber’s max operating pressure of 16 Bar.
The banks are going to be used alongside a 10.5m³ recompression chamber, providing a supply of breathing air to the chamber. They will be mounted along the side of a 20ft ISO shipping container, with a bank being connected on each side of the container.
