Abstract : In July 1982, the BAUER MARINER D high pressure air compressor was tested by the Navy Experimental Diving Unit in response to reference 1. The purpose of this test was to determine if the equipment was suitable for use by the United States Navy (USN) diving community. The BAUER MARINER D met manufacturer's specifications for quantity of air produced with a quality which met or exceeded purity standards. The design and engineering was determined to be adequate as no material failures were encountered during testing. The BAUER MARINER D is considered to be suitable for USN requirements for compressors of this size and type.
