<![CDATA[Kirby Morgan Bulletin 9: Caution Bulletin]]> http://www.amronintl.com/blog/kirby-morgan-bulletin-caution-bulletin/ Subject: Caution Bulletin

Regarding Second Stages Used with M-48 Supermask® (P/N: 800-048) and M-48 MOD 1 (P/N: 800-150)

Kirby Morgan Dive Systems Inc.® DOES NOT recommend using balloon type valve second stage regulators, e.g., the Poseidon Jet Stream,® or XSTREAM® models, or any regulators that could well exceed 40 millibars (MBR) of pressure when the purge is fully depressed, on the M-48 SuperMask, P/N 800-048 or the M-48 MOD 1, P/N 800-150.


The Poseidon Jet Stream® and the XSTREAM® models are high performance regulators that are capable of delivering very large volumes of air when the purge is fully depressed. This high gas flow can be sudden and dramatic, and while this condition may not post a significant risk to a non-full face mask diver, it could pose a significant risk when using the M-48 SuperMask or M-48 MOD 1 because the seal provided by these masks may not allow overpressure air from around the diver's lips to escape and vent quickly enough, causing oral and lung pressures to exceed the 40 MBR positive pressure limit which could be hazardous to the diver.

If an overpressure event as described above occurs, this could result in serious injury or death.
