Atomic Aquatics’ Atomic Scuba Heat System is the first on the market of its kind that warms the air you breathe on a dive. The Heat System increases the comfort level on dives in cold water by helping maintain your core body temperature, allowing you to extend your time underwater.
This system can increase the breathing gas temperature from -6F/-21°C to 34°F/1°C, a difference of +40°F/22°C. Doug Toth has invented this revolutionary new air heating system to warm the air from the first stage. As it enters the cupronickel coil system, air is warmed by the surrounding water and exits toward your second stage delivering a warm breath.
A low-pressure hose connects to the first stage of the regulator, and the regulator plugs into a small connector box that sits neatly on the tank band around the cylinder, keeping you streamlined.
Retailing at US$349/308 Euros, the Heat System will be available from the beginning of next year worldwide.
