PADI Gas Blender Course
For Technical Divers and dive professionals, the Gas Blending course is an easy way to learn about oxygen cleaning and handling different gas mixes to blend gas for technical diving. The course covers the use of partial pressure blending, membrane compressors, and calibration and use of nitrox blending sticks.
As Kiwidivers is Phuket’s leading PADI TecRec and Rebreather Center, we are regularly making gas mixes for our tec and rebreather courses. You will learn firsthand how we safely blend mixes in a busy dive center.
The DSAT Gas Blender course develops the student’s ability to completely blend enriched air nitrox and/or tri-mix using one or more of the blending methods available for the diving industry. It is not intended to replace equipment-specific training required by manufacturers of gas blending equipment.
At Kiwidivers, we also cover the use of our portable Oxygen booster pump and portable compressor for blending gas mixes in the field at remote sites. We also include in our course additional training on the regular maintenance of compressors, including filter changing and re-packing.
Our tec instructor trainer has designed and built many gas blending sticks for other dive centers. Learn what goes into the basic design and build of a nitrox blending stick and how to calculate the right configuration for your needs.
Our practical oxygen cleaning workshop includes the cleaning of regulators and/or tank valves.
As with all our courses, you will receive a set of genuine PADI materials and a digital gas calculator. Upon meeting performance requirements, you will receive an internationally recognized gas blender certification card.
