Compact, reliable and comfortable
The SuperLite® 27® gives the working diver a compact, reliable and extremely comfortable helmet.
If the diver is looking for the most compact helmet with the “snuggest” fit, the SuperLite® 27® is Kirby Morgan’s smaller unit in our selection of highest quality commercial diving helmets.
The SuperLite® 27® comes standard with the Tri-Valve® Exhaust System which provides exceptionally dry breathing under all conditions, without increasing breathing resistance. Also setting the SuperLite® 27® apart from other helmets is its water dump valve which is mounted on the port side, contributing to the shorter, more compact profile of this helmet.
The 455 Balanced Regulator regulator featured on the SuperLite® 27® is an all stainless steel regulator with superior breathing performance. With the diver adjustable system, the regulator can be “tuned” during the dive according to the workload, especially important when using a low pressure compressor with varying supply pressures.
500-040 SL 27® Helmet w/Posts
500-041 SL 27® Helmet w/MWPC
The air train diffuses incoming breathing air/gas onto the face port/lens to defog and ventilate.
Defogging Steady Flow Valve
Provides an additional flow of gas into the helmet for ventilation and defogging.
Emergency (EGS) Valve
Supplies backup breathing gas to the diver.
Fiberglass and Carbon Fiber Reinforced Shell
Kirby Morgan® has over 50 years experience in composite laminations. The helmet shell is hand laid up glass fiber reinforced thermal setting polyester (fiberglass) with carbon fiber reinforcement at key points for added durability. It is light and highly impact resistant, and provides a heat/cold barrier as well as being an excellent electrical nonconductor.
Gas Supply Non-Return Valve
Commercial Rated™, It prevents loss of gas pressure in the event of umbilical damage.
Nose Block Device
Allows the diver to block the nose to equalize ears.
Rapid Change Modular Communications Systems
Because the module is easily removed the helmet, repair or replacement of communications parts is quick and trouble free. It is available with either a male waterproof connector or a bare wire post connection.
Multi use side block has additional ports built in to provide controlled air flow, if needed.
Silicone Oral Nasal Mask
Made of a superior silicone material which is hypo-allergenic and has a longer work life than latex.
The 455 Balanced Regulator
The 455 Balanced regulator sets a milestone in surface supplied breathing performance and is compatible with all Kirby Morgan Helmets and Band Masks that feature the SuperFlow® 350 regulator. The regulator body is made of 316 stainless steel, as are all its other metallic components.
Handle can be removed without breaking seals, making it quick and easy to attach accessories.
Bubble deflecting Whisker wings keep bubbles further from face port and ears, improving visibility and decreasing internal noise.
