This will often happen if the second stage is dropped or removed from the mouth while under-water.
This is particularly important when purging after vomiting through the regulator.
Pdf, 12-2801-r01 alliance integrated airway assembly.This lifts the valve off its seat, releasing gas into the chamber.The exhaled air goes into a corrugated coaxial exhaust hose which surrounds the intermediate-pressure hose and discharges about 60 of the way back to the first-stage to keep the bubbles away from the diver's face.Standard submersible pressure gauge halo 1 full game edit The standard arrangement has a high pressure hose leading to a submersible pressure gauge (SPG) (also called a contents gauge).Accessories edit Anti-freezing modification edit Apeks TX100 second stage showing heat exchange fins on chromed brass demand valve seat housing Apeks first stage showing environmental sealing diaphragm As gas leaves the cylinder it decreases in pressure in the first stage, becoming very cold due.A Bonnier Corporation Company.Transformer Rewinding - Gary Brown, WZ1M in Maine offers transformer re-winding services.
Underwater the second stage may be damped by the water and the loud pops may become an intermittent or constant stream of bubbles.

However, as helium is generally used for deep dives, it will normally be used with high performance regulators, suitable for the depth.
In the mid-1960s, J-valves were widespread.
For example a regulator may have a balanced piston first stage with a balanced downstream second stage.
The gas may be supplied from a scuba cylinder carried by the diver or via a hose from a compressor or high pressure storage cylinders at the surface in surface-supplied diving.57 dead link citation needed Misrepresentation in popular culture edit There have been thousands of drawings (mostly in comics, some elsewhere) of combat frogmen and other scuba divers manual de usuario ford ka 2002 with two-cylinder twin-hose aqualungs shown wrongly with one wide breathing tube coming straight out of each cylinder.Constant flow scuba edit In constant-flow regulators the first stage is a pressure regulator providing a constant reduced pressure, and the second stage is a plain on/off valve.1 There are several types of contents gauge.This may increase cracking pressure, reduce flow rate, increase work of breathing or induce free-flow, depending on what part is affected.
