[19/04/17] If you need a robust, continuous, comprehensive gas monitoring solution for your diving system or decompression chamber, the SDA range from Analox Military Systems is for you.

Find out more about where it can be used and the gases it monitors, and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

Where is the SDA range used?

The SDA range is predominantly used in the following industries:

In air diving, the SDA O2 can be used to monitor the air which is supplied to divers to make sure that the level of oxygen supplied to divers is correct, which is important if divers are using a blended gas like nitrox or heliox. SDA monitors can also be used in decompression chambers which need to be used if a diver surfaces too quickly and is at risk of decompression sickness.

The SDA range can also be used with a flow adaptor to measure the gas mixture in diving cylinders.

Although more commercial than military, saturation divers work at great depths for long periods of time, and live in a pressurised environment in order to prevent being repeatedly decompressed. O2, pressure, CO2 and He as well as temperature and humidity need to be monitored in order to provide a comfortable, safe environment for divers.

In decompression chambers, the SDA O2 and Depth/ROC monitors can be used to ensure that divers are not decompressed too quickly, and that levels of oxygen are maintained at the correct level.

In Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) chambers, levels of oxygen need to be maintained as too high levels of oxygen can cause a fire hazard, or potentially cause oxygen toxicity which can cause nerve or brain damage. Pressure also needs to be maintained as pressure is increased in a HBOT chamber in order to allow the body to absorb more oxygen.

Which gases does the SDA range monitor?

SDA dual O2

The SDA range consist of gas monitors which independently monitor different gases and conditions.

Combinations of these different monitors can be networked together if you need to be able to monitor different gases at the same time.

The benefits of the SDA range includes:
