Compressor Operations SDC, 4th Jan 2014

Some training opportunities lend themselves to bad weather and Compressor Operations goes well under stormy skies and so it was that a couple of us got together to learn about compressors operations and run the BSAC Compressor Operations skill development course.

A relatively short but interesting course providing a recap of simple diving physics and compressor designs before going on to talk about air quality and standards, cylinder markings and filling safety and ending in a practical session operating the compressor and filling cylinders. So it was that the team spent time in the den, the garage and then the club shed where we had a good variety of theory and hands on before actually getting to use a compressor and filling empty cylinder from the New Year dives.
