Increased dive time for mine clearance

JFD is continuing to add to its range of reliable diving rebreathers by bringing out a new version of its Stealth military rebreather with added features and capabilities.

The Stealth CDLSE Mk2, a closed circuit mixed gas underwater breathing apparatus, now features advanced O2 sensors, which enable the control system to rapidly and accurately respond to changes in life support system status, and it offers an improved choice of cylinders.

In addition to this, the Mk2-ED contains an extended duration scrubber (which removes and recycles carbon dioxide from the air) allowing increased dive time to between six and eight hours compared to the Mk2’s three to five hours. This means divers involved in mine clearing activities get extended dive time.

The new model builds on the existing success of Stealth CDLSE, which has been in service for over 15 years and has a proven track record in a range of operational and environmental conditions all over the world.

‘As sea mines increase in sophistication, so do the challenges facing divers,

Explains Danny Gray, operations director at JFD;

‘We have been working closely with key customers to identify and meet ever-more complex operational requirements and have invested significant time and energy to bring an advanced rebreather capability to the market.’

JFD managing director, Giovanni Corbetta adds:

‘JFD’s focus is on keeping those that operate underwater, in often harsh and highly dangerous conditions, as safe as possible and the launch of the Stealth CDLSE Mk2 and Mk2-ED demonstrates our fundamental commitment to meeting these demands.’
