3

The members of the Antarctica 100 expedition have set a new world record in extreme deep-sea diving thanks to the unique systems produced by Russia’s Aviation Equipment. The Russian divers have jumped about 100 meters deep into the crater of an active Antarctic volcano.

During the deep-sea expedition, the divers used the VR-172 air pressure valve and LAM-17 oxygen delivery device which are protected from freezing and ensure reliable air supply and free breathing at low temperatures in deep water. The VR-172 air pressure valve and LAM-17 oxygen delivery device allowed the divers to jump 97 meters deep into the crater of an active volcano. According to the expedition members, the equipment has operated without a hitch.

It should be noted that the Aviation Equipment holding specializes in the design, manufacture and maintenance of aircraft units and systems. In addition, the holding company produces details and units for such industries as oil and gas, automotive, transport, and energy.
