NitroxMakerTM Yacht Series
Nitrox with Triox Option
Within the diving community, the term “Nitrox” refers to breathing gas mixtures of nitrogen and oxygen (excluding trace gases) that contain higher than normal levels of oxygen. Normal air has a typical oxygen content of 20.9%. The most common nitrox mixes used for scuba diving contain 32% and 36% oxygen.
Nitrox is the gas of choice for recreational diving the world over, gaining steadily in popularity and availability since the mid 80’s. Diving with nitrox reduces the uptake of nitrogen in body tissues, lowering the risk of decompression sickness and allowing extended dive times. Many divers also report feeling healthier and less fatigued when diving nitrox as compared with diving air.
Brownie’s NitroxMaker™ is an easy-to-use nitrox station designed specifically for yachts. This system is capable of producing and analyzing nitrox mixtures from 21%-40% with the turn of a dial. Simply choose the appropriate mixture and the NitroxMaker™ produces the gas using a high-efficiency semi-permeable membrane system that operates at a remarkably low temperature.
This method of nitrox production eliminates the need to carry bulky and potentially hazardous cylinders of pure oxygen onboard. Additionally, by utilizing a membrane that does not require high-temperature heating for stabilization or efficiency, potential damage to the high-pressure compressor is avoided.
Brownie’s has the ONLY membrane technology that does not require accelerated outlet temperature!
