Hyperbaric Chamber Design Manual
If you have been interested in owning a hyperbaric chamber, this e-book is for you. Do you want to own a professionally built hyperbaric chamber? Well this e-book is for you. Do you want to under the principles involved with building a hyperbaric chamber? Well this e-book is really for you. I provide a reference design book that any one can use. I explain what components to order and where to order them from.
You do not have to fear the math, I explain it to you, and show you examples that apply to a couple of popular sizes of chambers. I will even provide you with an easy to use math tool so you can really play around with different size chamber designs.
This book details the math necessary for chamber design and references the American Mechanical Society of Engineers (AMSE) standards for pressure vessel construction. I provide all the steps that I took to have my chamber built. My chamber is used anywhere from 2 to 6 hours most days without problem. It has proven to be a reliable design. (If you wish to copy my chamber, I include all of the drawings and calculations.)
This book is intended for use by individual who desire to have a chamber professionally built. I strongly recommend hiring a pressure vessel company to weld the tank components according to ASME specification. When compared to the price of a commercially available hyperbaric chamber and the amount of money that you will save, the cost of a professionally built chamber is quite reasonable.
I researched pressure vessel design for chamber construction and became fluent with the design equations. I assembled an excel spreadsheet so you could plug in the values for the tank and the spreadsheet does the calculations for you. I go over the calculation with examples so that you will also understand the math. I explain how the ASME weld specification effects the calculations. I explain it in such a way that someone with high school level math skills can easily follow the discussion.
I will explain the different components of the tank (heads, shell, door and bulkhead). Tell you how the tank is pressurized and maintained. I explain selection of seals for the port windows and door. Show the door arm design and window ports.
Most importantly you will save tens of thousands of dollars and end up with a safe, professionally built chamber. You can contract with a certified pressure vessel manufacturer and you will have a chamber built which will provide a generous safety margin. This tank is intended for you private use, but if you have the resources and desires you can submit plans to the FDA and get approval for Hyperbaric Chamber sale to individuals per physicians prescription.
To give you an idea of how much your chamber will cost to have built, mine was around $7000 with the air compressor (this included the tank components, shipping to the Iron Works Company and the labor cost of having it welded by certified welders and painted). My chamber is large enough where 2 or 3 people could dive comfortably together. It has an 8ft cylinder and with the two heads (rounded tank ends) is 11 feet long and 48 inches in diameter. This chamber would cost over $75,000.
I show how to interface the controls for both inside and outside operation where you can dive without outside assistance.
Are you wanting to take HBOT treatments, well I show you how to connect an oxygen concentrator with adequate pressure for HBOT (not all O2 concentrators have adequate pressure for hard chamber use) and will explain how to plumb in O2 from a tank.
I will discuss which air compressors proved to be most reliable. What air compressors did I finally end up with? This one piece of information will save you hundreds of dollars as I purchased a well known national brand of air compressor that simply did not hold up.
If you follow my recommendations (ASME) for the material selection, you will be using the same carbon steel that the hyperbaric chamber manufacturers use and assembled to the same specification by certified welders with inspection. The difference is that you will spend about one tenth of the cost.
I include dozens of pictures showing even the smallest details. From what I have seen, this is the only place you can find this information period….
materials selection (where to order)
main tank components
Air compressor requirements
Auxiliary Cooling system (build it for around $100)
Oxygen systems for (HBOT)
Pressure relief valves
You are receiving a design document that shares enough information that:
-You will feel comfortable through the process of having a hard hyperbaric chamber professionally built
-You will be provided a complete list of components to order (and show where to order them from)
-You can use the drawings that my chamber was built from
Basically, you will communicate with professionals, tell them what you want and they will build it. Period….
You will not have to do any physical labor (in fact, you should leave all of the work for the professionals) You will pick up a telephone, made a couple of orders, and select a local Iron Works company that builds pressure tanks using certified ASME welders.
I explain what you need to know, and when the time comes you will just pick up the telephone.
Be assured that the e-book that you are buying is well prepared.
Let me tell you about my self. I hold three patents awarded by the US Patent and Trademark Office. I am a degreed Engineer and had worked in the Space Program at Kennedy Space Center in Florida for over a decade. Currently, I am a licensed doctor in my state.
You are buying thousands of dollars worth of engineering for a fraction of that price.
You can have a professionally built, hard hyperbaric chamber that can hold up to 3 to 4 people (if you copy my design or more if you use the principle that I teach you on your design) for less than half the cost of comfortably sized soft chamber.
You will be impressed with the amount of information that you will receive.
You will understand Hyperbaric Chamber Design to the extent you can oversee having yours constructed. No where else can you find this information. No where on the planet.
Even if you decide to buy a hyperbaric chamber, this design guide will still save you money, because I have included my guide for building an air conditioner for your Hyperbaric Chamber.
Included with this information are my plans for building an Air conditioner for your Hyperbaric Chamber for around $100 or less. You will see that air conditioners for chamber can cost up to $1250 plus shipping.
There are others that you fill up with ice for a few hundred of dollars. My plans for an Air Conditioner provide a maintenance free, electrical solution which will last for years. It is certainly the best solution for maintaining comfort whether you are using a hard chamber of a soft chamber.
You are getting a tremendous value. You will be impressed!!
