Russian Divers to Set New Record in Barents Sea


The latest technology developed by Russia’s Aviation Equipment Holding, a freeze-resistant regulator for scuba diving, will be used in the expedition to the Barents Sea for researching the sea bottom and setting a diving depth record. This agreement was reached at a meeting with members of the Antarctica-100 expedition on January 21.

Another development of the company, the LAM-17 device, has successfully endured the harsh conditions of Antarctica. The divers plunged to a record depth down the mouth of an active volcano.

As stated by the company’s press service, the new LAM-21 pressure regulator and the BP-173 air breathing device, which are component parts of the Morzh underwater breathing apparatus, are intended to be used for even lower temperatures and longer immersion.
