Pressure chambers


Pressure chambers are installed on board diving support vessels. Divers are accommodated inside, observed, medically checked and supplied. From these pressure chambers with precisely regulated breathing gas mixtures, the drivers are led via transfer chambers to the diving bell which is then lowered to the working depth. The processes of compression and decompression, lasting several days, take place inside the pressure chambers.
