What is a “fully equipped” dive? There is no simple answer to this question, because the equipment varies with the dive the environment and purpose. If you go ice diving, for example, you make a lot of thermal protection, while in the tropics you need relatively small. Special events require special equipment, if you want to take pictures of the dive, you will obviously need a camera system underwater.
In these variables, but whatever the details of diving, there is a kit of basic equipment you need recreational diving. The same applies if you get into technical diving. Let’s look at each of these blocks stationary equipment.
Sometimes called the march “basic” to cover the minimum of these three “adjustments” need as a diver, seeing, breathing and swimming legs instead of arms. When you put the scuba gear, you still need to see the mask and flippers for swimming. You can still use the file without an air intake on the surface, or if you have to do a long swim (planned or unplanned) of a hollow cylinder, especially if you are a current or chop. With the exception of a few cases, snorkel are required for recreational diving equipment, while breathing underwater in your system.
In technical diving, usually skip the snorkeling because it causes more problems than solutions. However, divers equipped with snorkels technician is, under certain circumstances, if you can finish a long way from a boat and waiting to be picked up.
You’ll want all the exposure to changes of some sort to protect against loss of heat and wear. As chapter four, water conducts heat from the body of 20times faster than the air at the same temperature. Therefore, it can become dangerously chilled water temperature that would be great in the air. Very hot water may not need the heat shield, but still be eligible to wear something to protect the user from accidental scratches and punctures.
Costumes costumes include exposure light body (aka skin combinations), combinations and sealed. You use the body matches in hot water mainly for abrasion protection. Combinations to provide more insulation, making them suitable for longer dives in warm water diving and water cooler. Drysuit provides the best insulation, so you can dive in cold waters including the Arctic and Antarctic. More fit, you usually involve some form of hand protection and foot, and the water cooler, a hood.
Because diving Tech may be two or three times longer than recreational diving, divers are generally more tech insulation (almost never the costumes of the body) in relation to recreational divers for the water temperature even.
Exhibition of costumes are carriers, and can also, depending on their physical characteristics. For diving, using a system of weights to compensate for the buoyancy, just what I swim gently. You do not use as much weight to run faster. Systems can be a weight belt, harness or integrated into the vest. In recreational diving, a control system must have a quick release for which you can drop your weight with one hand – if you are in a situation where you want to be sure to stay on the surface. You may have a weight in technical diving, but often do not. Speed of technology can be so large and heavy that there is no need for any system of weights at all, even with a dynamic exposure suit.
If you need to focus on the techniques of decompression dives, the hazards caused by the loss to be higher than some difficulty in flight between them. For this reason, divers often have an advanced system that requires more weight to operate a drop to get rid of weight.
The standard recreational diving consists of three integrated components in a high pressure cylinder of the control of compressed gas, regulator and buoyancy (BCD). Each of these scuba.
High Pressure Compressed Gas Cylinder
It is a cylinder of steel or aluminum as the capacity of air (or enriched air) is typically full pressure, which varies from 150 psi to 200 psi bar/2250 bar/3000. Usually wear a single-cylinder recreational diving.
Tech divers usually wear a double, a high-capacity cylinders associated with a particular valve (exhaust manifold).
Your regulator air in your bottle as needed when you inhale. It does this by reducing the air pressure to match the surrounding water pressure in two stages or phases. Your controller is also an alternate air source to share with a friend in an emergency and an SPG (pressure gauge), so you know how you look at all times.
A third snake, call the LPI (Low Pressure inhaler) delivering air to your BCD.
BCD (Buoyancy Control Device)
Your BCD is an inflatable jacket you wear. It keeps your system diving together and allows you to control your buoyancy by adding or releasing air. In inflate or deflate the BCD, you can easily float on the surface or swimming effortlessly above the bottom. Your BCD may also include your weight system. Tech divers use a dive similar, but with some important differences. The diver Tech has two completely independent regulators and uses a wing-type BCD with a separate harness.
The sandwich-type wing BCD between the cylinders and harness; BCD technology can have two independent bladders and inflation / deflation system.
Also need to know how much air you have, you also need to know how long you were underwater, and your depth to avoid decompression sickness. At a minimum, you must have a timer or watch under water, and a depth gauge, but it is more common to use a dive computer. Dive computers helps you avoid decompression sickness using the time information and depth to a decompression model. In addition, you use a compass under water to help find your way.
In Scuba Tech, you must use the same instruments, but you still have two timing devices and two depth gauges – typically dive computers. In recreational diving, you can choose to get your instruments in a console, but in the technology of diving instruments you wear on your wrist.
Although it is common to get caught, which happens to have a cutting tool of any kind, is standard equipment (except where prohibited by law). The typical choice is a dive knife, but you may want special scissors and other technology devices.Diving beyond technology, always have two blades, one can reach with either hand.
In many situations, you may be hard to tell if you away from the surface of the boat due to currents or errors in dive plan. Audible and visual signaling devices attracting the attention of the crew or other divers to pick up or back.
Dive Tables / Planners
As a recreational diver, always remain within the limits of depth and time that allow you to swim directly to the surface at any time if necessary. Despite using a dive computer to help you stay within these limits, use the dive tables to plan the dive and as a backup in case of equipment malfunction. The R ecreational Dive Planner (RDP) is undoubtedly the most popular table for this, although you can choose from others, such as tables of the U.S. Navy (Which can be found expressed in various ways for ease of use). Using underwater slates to take the dive plan information and communication. High-tech divers diving with decompression necessary for certain times and depths. Y ou must use dive computers a little more sophisticated in determining these depths in diving technology, but still needs the dive tables to plan the dive and consult in the case of a computer problem. Instead of using pre-printed forms that RDP in tech diving, you can create dive tables tailored to a specific dive using decompression software desktop.
Dive Log Book
Certification cards to set up his training, but is your log book, which tells you what you did with this qualification. The register, you create a tangible record of diving experience, that some of the places and live-aboards want to see. When you move through the ranks of diver, you need a book that shows the log to meet the minimum experience requirements required for many courses. A typical log book is on paper, but you can get the software, log in diving. If you want to record your dive computer, you must print a summary of your experience.
