SuperFlow® Regulator: The 505-027 SuperFlow® "B" regulator on the SuperLite® 17B offers high performance. The regulator has been tested at Dive Lab at Panama City, Florida. It meets all current U.S. Navy and European diving standards.
Air Train: The air train diffuses incoming breathing air/gas onto the face port/lens to defog and ventilate.
Brass Handle: Handle can be removed without breaking seals, making it quick and easy to attach accessories.
Chin & Yoke Strap Kit: The SL-17B Helmet ships with a low profile strap system designed to retain the helmet to the neck clamp/yoke assembly in the event these two main components accidentally become separated.
Defogging Steady Flow Valve: Provides an additional flow of gas into the helmet for ventilation and defogging.
Emergency (EGS) Valve: Supplies backup breathing gas to the diver.
Fiberglass and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Shell: Kirby Morgan® has over 50 years experience in composite laminations. The helmet shell is hand laid up glass fiber reinforced thermal setting polyester (fiberglass) with carbon fiber reinforcement at key points for added durability. It is light and highly impact resistant, and provides a heat/cold barrier as well as being an excellent electrical nonconductor.
Gas Supply Non-Return Valve: Commercially Rated™ It prevents loss of gas pressure in the event of umbilical damage.
Nose Block Device: Allows the diver to block the nose to equalize ears.
Side Block: Multi use side block has additional ports built in to provide controlled air flow, if needed.
Silicone Oral Nasal Mask: Made of a superior silicone material which is hypo-allergenic and has a longer work life than latex.
Whisker Wings: Bubble deflecting Whisker wings keep bubbles further from face port and ears, improving visibility and decreasing internal noise.
