Compressors, air fills and Nitrox.
We have invested a considerable amount of money in our new custom designed air filling equipment and we are proud to say that we have the cleanest and purest scuba air in St. Lucia. This is a FACT as we are currently the ONLY dive center in St. Lucia to offer Modified Grade E (Oxygen Compatible) air suitable for Partial Pressure Blending Enriched Air Nitrox fills, which is the purest grade of scuba air available.
Our scuba air is supplied by our two Paramina Mistral and one Max-Air 90 electrically driven compressors with PURACON continuous electronic air purity monitoring. As a double check, air is analysed quarterly and the results displayed in the Dive Center. We have a cascade fill system which when full, allows us to fill twenty scuba cylinders without the need to run the compressors, making our air fills very fast.
We are pleased to be able to offer Enriched Air Nitrox fills from 22% to 40% Oxygen content. For those of you that would like to dive Nitrox but do not have the certification, we offer Enriched Air Nitrox courses and try dives too. Please see the Specialty Courses page for details.
Our scuba cylinders are Luxfer 80 cu ft (11.1 ltr) capacity Aluminium scuba cylinders fitted with your choice of International (“A” clamp) or 232 Bar DIN (screw in) valves. This means that if you own a DIN fitting regulator you will be able to use it at Scuba Steve’s without the need for a screw on yoke adapter, which means you will not be stuck if you forget to bring your own International adapter! We also have Luxfer 63 cu ft (9.0 Ltr) and 50 cu ft (7.0 Ltr) aluminium cylinders for children or people who prefer a smaller and lighter cylinder.
