DIVE INTO THE DEPTH OF THE SPIRIT FROM THE SEA
It is an indescribable feeling to wander freely in another world and discover the underwater world in the depths of the sea. Diving suits are undoubtedly one of the most important equipment needed when exploring this world.
Exploring the deep seas requires a complex as well as dangerous effort. However, discovering the things that are at the bottom of the sea has always been one of the passions of human beings. In 1715, British inventor John Lethbridge developed a diving suit that could go 18 meters deep and stay there for up to 30 minutes. In the middle of the 19th century, waterproof metal diving suits began to be used. In these suits, the tube in the helmet remained on the surface so that the divers could breathe. But because of the pressure, the divers couldn’t go too deep.
The pinnacle of diving suit technology is atmospheric diving suits called ADK. The feature of these clothes is that they provide diving people the opportunity to descend to a depth of 600 meters. The first of these clothes was made in 1882 and weighed around 376 kilograms! Many different versions were made with this outfit. But the main problem with these clothes was that they couldn’t make a sleeve that could withstand high pressures.
Later, the British engineer J.S. Peress designed an outfit named ‘Tritonia’. The feature of this suit was that it allowed the diver to work even at a depth of 360 meters and at 35 times the pressure on the surface. Nowadays in the same way, these diving suits are used in deep sea exploration.
Today, diving suits are produced with neoprene (also polychloroprene or PC-rubber). Neoprene exhibits good chemical stability and flexibility over a wide temperature range. Neoprene diving suits are very effective for insulating and managing pressure in general.
Diving suits, of course, have a lifetime. As a result of this lifetime, many memories are left to their fate. However, realizing this abandonment, Suga recycled her diving suits and started making yoga mats. More than 27,000 diving suits have been recycled so far, whispering their stories quietly but deeply to our souls during yoga sessions.
Peaceful and fascinating moments experienced in deep waters are now in the depths of our souls.
