Spread the word! Divers Beware Kirby Morgan Dive Systems Inc.,® (KMDSI) has received a counterfeit KMB 28 that is solicited as a Genuine Kirby Morgan product. KMDSI has inspected and conducted laboratory and man testing on the counterfeit KMB 28 with findings that are well below the KMDSI standard for safety. A detailed report will be forthcoming. The counterfeit KMB 28 BandMask® VISUALLY APPEARS to be the same as a genuine KMB 28, but looks are deceiving. Man testing has proved that the counterfeit KMB 28 has severe breathing limitations once it is in the water. This causes KMDSI concern that use could lead to serious injury or death. This counterfeit is being sold out of China by: YANTAI HAIYUN DIVING EQUIPMENT CO. LTD. Proprietor: Mr. Li Daichen Selling through: made-in-china.com TAIDA MACHINERY INDUSTRY CO., LIMITED Export Manager: Mr. Wen Da http://www.taidamachinery.com/ Selling through: Taobao.com For the welfare of the diver KMDSI strongly emphasizes the importance of ONLY purchasing KMDSI products directly from an authorized KMDSI dealer.

MCSHX-3 circa ~1965 The Morgan Clam Shell. Designed to be dry over the entire head with a neck seal, it was not successful, and was not used beyond tank testing. The primary problem was leaking in the joint between the front and rear of the hat. #KirbyMorgan #CommercialDiving #CommercialDiver #HardHatDiver #HardHatDiving #DiveHat #Diving #WorkingDiver #SurfaceSupplied #Underwater #InnovationContinues #history #historicaldiving

KMHeH-2 - 1965 The Kirby Morgan Commercial Helium Helmet. This helmet was manufactured in 1965. The design was the same as the air hat with the addition of a permanently mounted canister and venturi recirculator system. A standard Sodasorb® CO2 absorbent chemical cartridge was utilized in the canister. This helmet was the first practical commercial helium helmet with a venturi. Mr. H. Dan Wilson was the first designer and user of a commercial helium helmet which used a demand system, not a venturi. His helmet preceded this hat by two years. The U.S. Navy was the pioneer of gas diving, starting in the '30s. The KMAH-1 and the KMHeH-2 were manufactured by Yokohama Diving Apparatus from 1966 to 1990. #KirbyMorgan #CommercialDiving #CommercialDiver #HardHatDiver #HardHatDiving #DiveHat #Diving #WorkingDiver #SurfaceSupplied #Underwater #InnovationContinues #kmheh2 #historical #historicaldiving
