    Gas Mixers & Tools

    Some time ago i was searching for good Gas Mixer. I thought that i'll find some kind of list where i'll be able to pick what i need. It wasn't so easy so i created my own list.
    Maybe it'll be handy for someone
    If anyone is using something different please leave a comment or PM me.
    On this list there's no software like V-Planner, NAUTILUS etc which contains gas mixers included.

    1. Find the formulae, they're probably in your trimix course notes.
    2. Understand them.
    3. Make a cheat card, take a photo of it if you need to, to remind you when you're at the fill station.
    4. Use the plain old calculator to do your gas calcs.

    It's how I roll too. I find it makes me engage my brain through the blend instead of just plugging in numbers and swinging on valves which I believe (with no basis in fact, mind) helps. Particularly when I don't have enough of one or other donor gasses and need to make something close up on the fly.

    If I'm making nitrox I simply calculate
    (fo2-.21)/.79Xtank pressure to give me how much O2 to put in then top with air.

    trimix requires a couple more steps :
    1. figure out the pressure of O2 and He required for mix (fraction of gas X total tank pressure)

    2. figure out EANx for fill (without helium) EANx = pressO2 /(tank press - pressHe)

    3. figure out your O2 to add using above nitrox formula, substitute (tank press - pressHe) for tank pressure in nitrox formula

    4. add helium then top off with air and go diving (don't forget to analyze)

    Take a gas blending course and all this should be covered.

    I use http://www.techgasblender.com/

    For continuous mixing with 2 sensors the best program I found so far ( I have to admit I don't know all of them you wrote here)

    Thank you for replay. Tech Gas Blender is already on my list. I registered for trial some time ago and looks very handy:)
