THE LOWLY PORT PLUG

Posted under Uncategorized

Most are either 3/8″ for L.P. 7/16″for H.P. & 1/2″ for the classics on older U.S. Divers and duty built Dacor. Mostly chrome plated brass but there are Titanium & Aluminum as well. Some same sized port plugs take different size O-rings, have different O-ring lands & overall differing depths! Use caution mixing & matching between manufacturers. This photo represents longevity, we know not many Dive Centers can produce a supply quite like this!

Fills up a Home Depot bucket & weighs almost 10 lbs! Coastal divers having a hard time so far. Offshore divers doing better with some doing way better than most. This one is from off of Palos Verdes. Openwater Habitat & a select group of Cats will be featuring on this tonight!

SOME’S GOOD, MORE’S BETTER & TOO MUCH IS DANGEROUS!

Posted under Uncategorized

Filling compressed gas cylinders is a serious matter. The Federal Government says that it’s illegal to fill gas cylinders beyond their rated fill pressures. Injuries at the fill station are common. Gas cylinder filling is a Hazmat situation that requires training for any individual who provides pressurized gas fills. Many divers want a “good fill” but what is a good fill? Divers seem to want their cylinders overpressurized meaning more than the cylinder is rated for. Cylinders are engineered & tested to allow for their maximum fill pressures. When cylinders get taken above their engineered max fill pressure things can go wrong. Cylinders will begin to weaken & potentially they will fail their hydrostatic test. It compromises the bust disc causing the burst disc to get bulged & then the burst disc can let go well below its rated burst pressure & at any given time (even U/W!) Most of our more discerning divers bring their cylinders in to fill well in advance so as to allow us to fill nice & slow, allow for cooling then to top up to the final psi while cooled.
