Bibby offshore limited recently ordered an electronic gas mixer from Witt Gas to be installed on their new diving support vessel DSV Bibby Sapphire.

The mixer is a stationary system that will be used to mix oxygen with heliox, the breathing gas made from oxygen and helium, used by deep sea divers working at depths up to 300 meters.

Carl Long, general manager, Witt Gas Techniques said: $quot;Our gas mixers are used in a wide variety of industries ranging from welding to food production. This particular mixer is a derivative from a mixer used to supply high purity (synthetic) air in hospitals, so it has to be reliable and it has a number of built in safety features.$quot;
