The SBV-1 allows a diver to breathe air directly into the Oral/Nasal Cavity of a full-face mask without the risk of CO2 buildup.
The SBV-1 design allows divers to stand fully operational on the surface without reducing their gas supply.
The SBV-1 is available for most full-face masks. The low profile of the SBV-1 reduces the chance of an entanglement.
The SBV-1 is designed for divers utilizing a full-face mask. It is perfect for public safety divers that dress en route to a call. A diver can arrive fully dressed, mask on, ready to enter the water.
Backup divers can maintain a ready position with the mask on, instead of placing the mask on only in the event of an emergency.
This reduces the possibility of a backup diver rushing and placing the mask on improperly, wasting precious time during a life-or-death situation.
For instructors, the SBV-1 saves time and energy by allowing them to talk through the vent and not having to remove their mask.
There is only one moving part. Simply freshwater rinse the SBV-1 along with the full-face mask. Periodically grease the "O" rings, and you're done!
To place the SBV-1 on an AGA full-face mask, simply remove the communications port cover by removing the two screws that attach the cover. Replace the cover with the SBV-1 and tighten the two screws.
The SBV is available for AGA, Ocean Reef and EXO full-face masks. Also now available with the OTS (Ocean Technology Systems) Communication Systems.
