HELMET AND EMERGENCY GAS SYSTEM
DAILY SET-UP AND FUNCTIONAL CHECKLIST
APPENDIX A2.3
01-25-17
THIS DAILY SET-UP AND FUNCTIONAL CHECKLIST SHOULD BE COMPLETED PRIOR TO COMMENCEMENT OF DAILY
DIVING OPERATIONS OR AT LEAST ONCE A DAY IF BEING USED DURING CONTINUOUS DIVING.
NOTE:
During removal of components for inspection, O-rings and other consumable
items may be reused, providing they are clean and a visual inspection does not
reveal any damage or deterioration.
WARNING: These are recommended minimum checks when using Kirby Morgan Helmets or
Masks. Additional checks may be required as dictated by the conditions and tasks
being performed. Failure to perform in-water checks may result in serious
injury or death.
CAUTION: All diving conducted using Kirby Morgan Helmets or Band Masks must include
the use of a fully functional, properly maintained Emergency Gas System
(“EGS”). The EGS should be maintained in accordance with the Modular
Operations and Maintenance Manual(s).
NOTE:
Steps 3(a) - 3(d) use the EGS for setting up and checking the Helmet systems.
For a proper check of the Demand Regulator adjustment, the First Stage Regulator
must have an intermediate supply pressure output between 135 – 150 psig (9.3 –
10.3 bar). The First Stage Bleed/Relief Valve should be set between 180 - 200
psig (12.4 – 13.8 bar). Do not attach the Umbilical until Step 6.

3. EGS Inspection
for signs of damage. Ensure the O-ring is
lightly lubricated. (SL-17 A/B only)
Diver/Tender- Check the following (a - f):
a. Orally check the One-Way Valve. With the
steady flow valve open, orally blow air thru
the one-way valve. Air should pass freely.
Next suck back on the umbilical adapter, no
air should pass back thru the one way valve
and umbilical adapter. If air can be drawn
back thru the one way valve, the one way
valve will require overhaul or replacement.
b. Connect the First Stage Regulator to the EGS
Cylinder and the Helmet Emergency Supply
Valve. With the cylinder turned OFF, open
and close the Side Block Emergency Valve to
check for smooth operation. Then open and
close the Steady Flow/Defogger Valve to
verify smooth operation.
c. Rotate the Regulator Adjustment Knob in fully
(clockwise), then rotate out (counterclockwise)
3 – 4 rotations to check for smooth operation.
d. Open the EGS Supply Valve on the cylinder.
Log the pressure _______ psig. Next open
the Emergency Supply Valve on the Side
Block.
e. Momentarily open the Helmet Steady Flow
3/4 to 1 full turn. Check for a strong flow of
gas out of the Defogging Train, and then
close.
f. Check for gas escaping from the One-Way
Valve. If any gas flow is detected the One-Way
valve should be overhauled or replaced.
5. Check the
Demand
Regulator
adjustment
Diver/Tender- Check the following (a - d):
a. Rotate the Demand Regulator Adjustment
Knob out (counterclockwise) until a slight
free flow develops. Next rotate in
(clockwise) until the free flow stops.

O&M Manual.
b. For helmets with the SuperFlow or SF-350
regulators, slowly depress the purge button to
check for too little travel or excessive travel.
The purge button should travel no less than
1/16” and no more than 1/8” (1.5-3.0mm)
before gas flow is heard. For the 450 and 455
regulators the flexible cover should travel
1/16”-1/8” before gas starts to flow. For the
KM-77 – KM-47, the cover should travel
3/16” to 1/4" before a gas flow starts.
c. Fully depress the purge button on the
SuperFlow regulators all the way and verify a
strong surge of gas. For the 450, 455, and
REX regulators pressing in 3/16”-1/4” should
result in a strong flow.

own repairs and inspections should only do so if they possess the knowledge and experience. All
inspections, maintenance, and repairs should be completed using the appropriate KMDSI Operations and
Maintenance Manual(s). Persons performing repairs should retain all replacement component receipts for
additional proof of maintenance history. Should any questions on procedures, components, or repairs
arise, please contact Kirby Morgan Dive Systems, Inc., by telephone at (805) 928-7772 or via e-mail at
