Hydralite

The Hydralite/BOSS has been successfully tested to 530 MSW during manned trials offshore and to 600 MSW onshore.

The Hydralite Helmet is an evolution of the XLite 3 gas reclaim helmet fitted with a secondary breathing system connected to the BOSS rebreather.

The shell is manufactured from polyester reinforced fiberglass with integral neck ring. The clamping arrangement incorporates a neck collar fitted with a latex neck seal and a redundant twin locking system which prevents from accidental hat removal.

The primary gas supply incorporates the T92 reclaim regulator system with anti-squeeze device. The secondary supply is independent of the T92 and its activation of the rebreather is simple to use.
