Gauge Calibration Course
The skills necessary to carry out the formal calibration of the wide range of pressure and depth gauges used in commercial diving operations.
There are many hundreds of dedicated DSV* & OSV* mounted containerized mobile dive systems world-wide. The larger systems utilize literally hundreds of pressure gauges that all come under strict IMCA scheduled maintenance requirements; much of a Dive Technicians time is spent carrying out this work and producing the documentation for filling in the PMS*/CMMS*. The course covers the major gauge types used, together with a practical workshop sessions carrying out the traceable calibration of a range of popular gauge types. Syllabus includes pressure pot for diver worn depth gauges together with a high pressure connector workshop to gain familiarity with the many methods of joining the pressure gauge to the dive system.
Small Diesel Engine Strip Down
There are more than 50,000 high pressure breathing air compressors used worldwide in Navy, Army Air force, fire departments, rescue teams, coastguards, disaster response teams, commercial diving and recreational diving companies. Many of these are portable units use small diesel engines for power.
