Abstract : Due to difficulties encountered with a production version of a newer design for a divers' non-return valve and the ever present problem of Chattering, a new valve was designed. A prototype was built and given extensive subjective evaluation. The results of the testing indicate that the valve is extremely rugged, requires no special tools, and is quiet. (Author)
