Abstract : Experiments to evaluate the performance of the NSRDL heater pump were performed in a cold tank. One to three divers were employed, each wearing a 3/16-inch foam neoprene wet suit over a Welson Tubing suit. The system was observed during over 10 hours of testing. The divers were maintained in these conditions at varying flow rates and suit inlet temperatures. (Author)
