Air Fills

As a deep south diving company, we take great care in properly filling scuba tanks to ensure the safety and well-being of our divers. This includes using clean and contaminant-free air, maintaining the correct pressure, testing the oxygen purity, regularly inspecting tanks for damage or wear, and adhering to all industry safety guidelines and regulations.

What are the important considerations when performing our work?

When filling scuba diving tanks, it is important to ensure that the air being used is clean and free from contaminants, such as oil or moisture. The air should also be at the correct pressure and should be tested for oxygen purity before being used by divers. It is also important to check the tanks for any damage or wear and ensure that they are properly maintained. Additionally, it is important to follow all safety guidelines and regulations when filling scuba tanks.

At our diving company, we use only the highest quality gases, including compressed air, Nitrox and Trimix, Heliox and Heliair, to ensure the safety and longevity of our divers.

The most common gas used in scuba diving tanks is compressed air, which is a mixture of mostly nitrogen (78%) and oxygen (21%). The remaining 1% is made up of other gases such as argon and carbon dioxide. Some divers may use a different type of gas mixture called Nitrox, which has higher oxygen content and lower nitrogen content than regular air. The use of Nitrox allows divers to stay underwater longer and reduces the risk of nitrogen narcosis. Other gases such as Trimix, Heliox, and Heliair are used for deep diving and technical diving which are more complex and require more specific training.
