As a DSAT and ANDI Gas Blender for almost 13 years now Chris has always found the extra knowledge you learn from the DSAT Gas Blending course extremely beneficial when teaching EANx courses and being able to answer your students more indepth questions.
This is especially true when they are asking about hydrocarbons, explosions, analyzing and a host of other questions which regularly come up !!
The DSAT Gas Blending Instructor Course covers:
Oxygen: Liquid Oxygen, Gaseous Oxygen, the 40% Rule, the hazards of oxygen, Design for Oxygen Use : Oxygen Cleaning and Oxygen Compatibility.
Oxygen Cleaning: Dismantling Equipment, Inspection and Gross Cleaning, Pre Cleaning and Rinsing, Cleaning, Rinsing and Drying, Inspection and Testing for Clean Reassembling, Packaging and Labelling.
Oxygen Compatible Air: CGA "E" Standards
Gas Blending Methods: Mixing By Weight, Partial Pressure Blending, Continuous Flow mixing, Oxygen Generation.
Gas Mixing Formulas: Partial Pressure Fill, Starting With an Empty Tank Continuous Blend, Starting With a Partially Full Tank Partial Pressure Fill, Starting With a Partially Full Tank, Partially Full Tank, Add Bank Mix, & Top With Air.
REMEMBER: it's all very well being able to teach an EANX course but if you always have to rely on someone else or another dive centre to mix your gas for you - it's a little bit … well ?!?!
.. imagine being an instructor or divemaster and having to always rely on someone else to fill your students / divers air tanks because you don't know how to . you will find it very much like that with EANx Nitrox ??
