Recreational nitrox gas blending manual.
As more divers understand the benefits of using nitrox, the need for a ready supply of the gas mix increases. This is good news for diving facilities that can supply this demand. Divers who enroll in a nitrox course are the people who are prepared to invest in themselves. It follows that these same divers tend to purchase better equipment, are more into dive travel, and are more active as divers.
To provide nitrox diver training is just not enough. If this is all we do, then our customers will go to our competitors to get their tanks filled with nitrox. While they are there, they might just see the new nitrox computer that they can't live without, or sign up for the store sponsored live aboard trip, etc.... You get the picture.
As nitrox is a relatively new field, there are a lot of myths and misinformation. "Isn't mixing nitrox dangerous?" "What about the expense?" "Will I ever recover the cost of setting up a mixing station?" "Don't I need special equipment that has to be cleaned in a laboratory?" We are going to explore these questions, and more. Once you are armed with the facts, then you can make informed decisions on what is the best gas blending system for your facility, and how to safely mix nitrox. We think that you will be pleasantly surprised.
This book was specifically written for people at the diving facility level. As such, there are three objectives:
- To direct you in the safe methods of blending Enriched Air Nitrox (EANx).
- To inform you as to what types of blending systems are currently available.
- To provide you with the correct information, so that you can choose what system would provide the best return on investment for your situation.
