Title
(EN) SKIN-DIVING DEVICE COMPRISING A DRY SNORKEL WITH AN IMPROVED VALVE
(FR) DISPOSITIF POUR LA PLONGEE SOUS-MARINE COMPORTANT UN TUBA SEC AVEC CLAPET PERFECTIONNE
Abstract
(EN)
A skin-diving device comprising a dry snorkel with an improved valve. The device is useful for skin diving with a snorkel preventing water ingress and consists of a perforated plastic snorkel (G), a second, inner snorkel (F) made of flexible rubber and adhered to the inner surface of the first snorkel around each opening, and a curved top piece in the upper portion (AA) with an internal valve (B, C, D, E) which prevents water ingress from the top piece into the snorkel. Said device provides complete sealing of the snorkel regardless of the diver's position on or below the surface. Protection is also provided when the water surface is choppy.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un dispositif permettant la plongée sous-marine à l'aide d'un tuba ne permettant pas à l'eau de pénétrer. Il est constitué par un tuba plastique perforé (G), un second tuba interne en caoutchouc souple (F), collé à chaque ouverture à la surface interne du premier tuba, par un embout coudé en partie supérieure (AA), comportant un clapet interne (B, C, D, E), qui ne permet pas à l'eau de s'infiltrer de l'embout vers le tuba. Ce dispositif permet une parfaite étanchéité du tuba, quelle que soit la position du plongeur sous l'eau ou en surface. La protection est également assurée pour les vagues.
