Air consists of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen and 1% other gases. NITROX consists of the same ingredients - only the percentage is different. For NITROX 32 this means 67% nitrogen, 32% oxygen and 1% other gases. And so NITROX 36 will contain 63% nitrogen, 36% oxygen and 1% other gases. When diving with NITROX, the nitrogen percentage is reduced and the oxygen percentage is increased. NITROX contains less nitrogen than air, which implies that the diver will absorb less nitrogen during the dive. Diving with NITROX means more comfort, an additional gain in safety, and a decisive extension of the no-stop times.
Advantages of Using NITROX:
- The reduced amount of absorbed nitrogen usually makes the diver feel more comfortable during and after the dive.
- You have a choice between NITROX 32 and NITROX 36, you can decide on the NITROX blend based on your personal needs.
- The combined advantages of diving with NITROX means an additional gain in safety as well as an extension of the no-stop time.
