Deep water diving is a general practice in industries such as off-shore drilling and underwater telecommunications as well as enjoyed frequently for recreational purposes.
In every application, it is essential that the constituents of the breathing gas mixture are at the correct concentration.
SGX sensors are widely employed in breathing gas monitoring systems to ensure safe levels before diving begins.
In addition, some diving equipment works on a closed circuit basis where no gas is vented externally. In these cases, build-up of carbon dioxide can result in a very poisonous breathing mixture, particularly at the high pressures under which the gas is held. These systems are fitted with scrubbers to remove any potential hazards.
SGX is one of the leading manufacturers of high performance CO2 sensors designed to ensure scrubbers are working effectively in this application.
