Hot start to the year

A Hot Water Machine is the first large project to be shipped in 2023 by SMP - Submarine Manufacturing & Products Ltd. Designed originally to be used by military divers, this one is on its way to a dive school.

Diver Hot Water Machines are designed to keep divers warm during cold water diving operations by pumping hot water down to a diver wearing a hot water suit.

The SMP Diver Hot Water Machine OF6000 is a three diver, diesel fire system. The system has three individually controlled heat exchangers, and each burner unit can provide 58,000 Kcal of thermic power. It also has three 50 litre hot water receivers and has a stainless-steel submersible pump which can pump water at a rate of 11 gallons per minute. The system can operate up to 10 Bar depth and is fitted with a digital control unit which will automatically maintain the temperature to within + or – 1°C of the desired temperature.

Bespoke to the client’s requirements, this system has stainless steel side panels. Typically, SMP Hot Water Machines are made with coated steel rather than stainless-steel. Based in Lancashire, Uk, SMP manufactures a range of diver hot water machines designed for one, two and three divers to suit a multitude of different diving operations.

With over 36 years’ experience in the field, SMP is a world leader in the design, supply and manufacture of commercial diving equipment, subsea equipment, hyperbaric chambers and submarine rescue systems.
