    Kiss Sport Apeks DS4 1st stage intermediate pressure?

    Hi,

    Time for fully servicing my rig. Tanks hydro tested and now working on 1st stages. I wanted some information on intermediate pressure settings for a SCR Kiss Sport. The Apeks DS4 oxygen 1st stage has been modified with the removal and replacement of part #26 hydro static transmitter. This was replaced with a disk that does not allow the IP to increase at depth. What should the Apeks DS4 1st stage IP's be for diving this rig for diluent and O2? Should part #26 hydro static transmitter be re installed for the oxygen 1st stage or is it best not to increase the O2 IP at depth?

    Thanks,
    Shadow

    the o2 IP is relative to the orifice size and our personal O2 consumption.... This should have been gone through in your class when you set the IP to match your personal O2 consumption

    Welcome to the board. Interesting first post.


    Are you actually certified on an mCCR? Of any type...?

    Welcome,
    The Sport Kiss is not an SCR, it is a true mCCR.
    Refer to your class or at least to your user manual: for a 0.0035 orifice and 0.75lpm O2 flow, IP shall be 11.5 bars.
    You can also download the Classic user manual on the Kiss website.

    SCR also needs fixed IP.
    At least most of them.
