MONTHLY INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE CHECKLIST
Appendix A2.2
01-25-17
This inspection is the minimum recommended maintenance and should be performed at least
ONCE A MONTH with Helmet(s) in continuous use (used for more than 20 diving days in a
month) or at least every TWO (2) MONTHS, with Helmet(s) used less than 10 diving days a
month.
This checklist is intended to aid persons performing routine maintenance and inspections of all
KMDSI Helmets. This checklist should be used in conjunction with the applicable Modular
Operations and Maintenance Manual for the model helmet being serviced and is primarily
intended to document the maintenance as it is completed and act as a guide. Specific detailed
procedures for each section of this checklist can be found in the KMDSI Modular Operations and
Maintenance Manuals. This checklist when completed should be retained in the equipment
maintenance files. This checklist is generic in nature and is intended to be used for all models of
KMDSI Diving Helmets.
NOTE: KMDSI strongly recommends that all repairs be performed by persons that have
received official Dive Lab training and are certified as KMDSI certified technicians.
NOTE: Helmets being used in polluted waters, or extreme environments, will require more
frequent inspection and maintenance.
NOTE: This checklist should be used in conjunction with the most current KMDSI Modular
Operations and Maintenance Manual. For latest Manual revisions please check the
KMDSI web page at www.kirbymorgan.com.
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.

NOTE: Perform the Neck Clamp/Yoke Assembly, Helmet, and Side Block/Demand Regulator
inspection procedures with gas supplies not connected to the Side Block. Attach the gas
supply at Step 5 of the “Side Block/Demand Regulator” inspection procedure.

NOTE: Ensure gas supplies ARE NOT attached to the Helmet EGS
and steady flow valve; remove protective dust caps, DO NOT
open the Steady Flow/Defogging Valve.
SIDE BLOCK/DEMAND REGULATOR
1. Check the Umbilical Supply One-Way Valve for proper operation
by sucking on the Umbilical Adapter with the Emergency Valve
open and the steady flow valve shut. No gas should be drawn
through the One-Way Valve. Guidance Modular O&M manual.
2. Remove the Regulator Cover Clamp, Cover, and Diaphragm.
Visually inspect the interior of the Regulator Body for corrosion or
contamination. Clean as necessary. Guidance Modular O&M
manual.
3. Carefully inspect the Diaphragm for cuts, tears, or deterioration. If
any damage is found, replace the Diaphragm. Guidance Modular
O&M manual.
4. Carefully check the Regulator Exhaust Valve for warping,
distortion, stiffness, or damage. This is checked by pressing on the
Flapper Valve from inside the Regulator. Check the Regulator
Body Valve Seat Spokes. The Spokes should be flat and even.
Straighten if deformed. If the Valve shows signs of damage or
deterioration, replace the Valve. Guidance Modular O&M manual.
5. Attach an air supply source to the Umbilical Adapter and set the
supply pressure to between 135 - 150 psig (9.3 – 10.3 bar). Adjust
the Regulator Adjustment Knob out, until a slight free flow
develops, then adjust in until the free flow just stops and check the
Lever play. There should be between 1/16” - 1/8” of play in the
Lever. Adjust as necessary. Guidance Modular O&M manual.
Reinstall the Diaphragm, the Cover, and the Clamp.

7. Check the Steady Flow Valve for proper operation.
6. Depress the purge button. On the SuperFlow and SuperFlow 350
regulators the purge button should travel between 1/16”-1/8”
before air flow starts. On the 450 and 455 balanced regulators, the
flexible cover should travel 1/16”-1/8” before air starts to flow.
For the REX the cover should travel between 3/16” and 1/4" before
flow starts. With all regulators depressing the purge more than a
1/4" should result in a strong flow of gas. If the Regulator Purge
travel is less than or greater than amount specified, re-adjust the
Lever. Guidance O&M manual.
NOTE: The Steady Flow Valve will rotate approximately 1 3/4
revolutions from closed to full open. With the air pressure to
the Helmet between 135 - 150 psig (9.3 - 10.3 bar), turning the
Steady Flow Valve ½ turn open should result in a strong flow
of gas through the Defogger Train.
8. Secure the gas supply, then bleed down and remove the umbilical
from the Inlet Adapter.
9. Attach a regulated gas supply (normally the EGS system), adjusted
to between 135 – 150 psig (9.3 – 10.3 bar), to the Emergency
Valve on the Side Block. On the Side Block, open the Emergency
Supply Valve all the way, and then slowly open the regulated gas
supply. Check the function of the Regulator Purge, Regulator
Adjustment Knob, and the Steady Flow Valve in accordance with
previous steps 6 and 7. Check for gas exiting from the One-Way
Valve. There should be no gas exiting the Umbilical Adapter.
NOTE: The Emergency Gas System consists of a good quality First
Stage Regulator equipped with, an Over-Pressure Bleed/Relief
Valve, and an Emergency Gas Supply Hose that connects to the
Emergency Valve on the Helmet Side Block.

1. Check the hydrostatic date and the last visual inspection record
(“VIP”) of the cylinder. Ensure the date(s) are within the specified
range. The VIP is done at least annually and the hydrostatic test is
done at least every five (5) years.
2. Check the maintenance record of the EGS components to ensure the
First Stage Regulator maintenance has been performed in
accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
3. Check all of the Hoses for signs of blisters, cover slippage, cuts or
abrasions. Replace any Hose(s) that shows signs of
leakage/damage. If a Quick Connect EGS Hose is being used,
inspect the quick connect and fittings for signs of wear/damage.
4. If a Submersible Pressure Gauge is used, ensure it has been
compared to a gauge of known accuracy and inspect the HP hose
for signs of corrosion and damage.
5. Test the First Stage Regulator’s Bleed/Relief Valve. Guidance 6.12
or as per “Appendix 4”: Bleed/Relief Valve Cleaning, Inspection,
and Overhaul Procedures”.
6. Perform a leak check of all EGS components and fittings using
soapy water in a pressurized condition. Repair/replace items as
necessary.
