Surface Supplied Oxygen Control System (SSOCS)
The SSOCS is an oxygen supply and regulating system designed to be used with the Dive Lab Extreme Lightweight Diving System (XLDS), but can also be interfaced with other surface supplied air and mixed gas systems.
The SSOCS is a small light weight manifold system that provides a control and interface point to allow oxygen or oxygen enriched breathing gas to be supplied to divers for in-water decompression. The operational concept is simple, specially configured interface whips and control blocks allow virtually any type of umbilical to be attached. The SSOCS can supply up to three divers.
The SSOCS high pressure supply system is rated for a maximum inlet pressure of 3000 psig. Two (12”) long, stainless steel braided Teflon lined hoses equipped with CGA nipples and hand wheels supply high-pressure oxygen to a common supply block with shut off valves. A single 12’ long HP whip sends HP oxygen to a supply / isolation valve that feeds the hand loader pressure regulator on the SSOCS control and interface console. The regulator has a maximum inlet supply working pressure of 3000 psig and can deliver a maximum discharge pressure of 250 psig. The low-pressure side of the regulator as well as the umbilical supply manifold is protected by a 3/8” SS relief valve normally set to relieve at between 190-210 psig. The discharge pressure of the regulator is normally set to supply the LP circuit with 145 – 165 psig. The system can supply oxygen or oxygen enriched gas (nitrox) to one, two, or three divers.
