The SuperFlow® 350 regulator used on the SuperLite® 27 provides outstanding performance. It features a diver adjustable system so that the regulator can be “tuned” during the dive according to your workload. This adjustment also allows you to set the regulator as the supply pressure varies, which is especially important when working with a low pressure compressor.
The Tri-Valve Exhaust System helps to keep the breathing system dry under all conditions without increasing the breathing resistance of the helmet. In addition, the helmet is also equipped with a separate Water Dump Valve which is mounted on the left side.
The helmet neck ring design, first produced in 1991, allows for evenly distributed weighting of the helmet. The chrome plated machined brass helmet ring houses the latch catches and provides protection for the bottom end of the helmet. The diver is also provided with an externally adjustable chin support. This support, along with the adjustable neck pad on the locking collar, gives the diver a comfortable, secure, custom fit.
The SuperLite® 27 is Commercially Rated™ and has been tested and certified to meet or exceed all requirements for all governing agencies. It is certified for use in all diving operations world wide.

CE Approved: The SL 27 helmet is CE Approved.
Temperature Limitations: Use at water temperatures below 33°F (1°C) requires use of hot water shroud (P/N DSI 525-100) and hot water.
The Hot Water Shroud (P/N DSI 525-100) in conjunction with hot water to the diver should be used whenever diving operations are conducted using HEO2 at water temperatures less than 60°F (15.56°C) for the comfort of the diver. KMDSI further recommends that the shroud be used in conjunction with hot water to the diver whenever diving operations are conducted using air or mixed gas, in waters colder than 36°F (2.22°C) to reduce the possibility of demand regulator icing.
Usually the greatest danger of demand regulator icing will be encountered on deck when the surrounding air temperature is less than 32°F (0°C). This effect is primarily due to the refrigeration effect of breathing air pressure reduction, and the addition of moisture from the divers exhalation coming in contact with the topside air temperature.
If diving where the water temperature is 36°F (2.22°C) or warmer but the topside air temperature is below freezing, (32°F (0°C) icing of the demand regulator is possible. To help eliminate the possibility of freezing on the surface, warm water should be run over the exterior of the demand regulator prior to water entry, if the hot water system is not used.
Only equipment certified and tested according to EN 250/E DIN 58 642 may be used with the SL 27 helmet when conducting diving operations in European EC compliant countries.
The umbilical assembly should be composed of good quality diving hose that meets industry standards. Generally, gas hose will be married to the communications wire, pneumofathometer hose, and strength member in a manner that will allow the strength member to receive all the strain. There are also good quality umbilical available that are assembled at the factory using a twisted method which does not require marrying. Regardless of the system used, the umbilical is the diver’s life line and should always be of excellent quality and maintained carefully.
