About the project

Anindya Mukherjee is a PADI IDC Master Instructor who loves diving and enjoys introducing others to the magical world of diving. For over 20 years now, he has been running his dive shop in Goa. He has traveled to all dive destinations in the world.

He had an idea of creating a portable and frugal air mixing device optimal for Nitrox diving (it’s all about the partial pressures). In recreational diving terms, enriched air nitrox (EANx) refers to any nitrogen/oxygen gas mixture with more than the 21 percent oxygen found in normal air.

Nitrox is commonly used breathing mixture in diving to decrease the nitrogen loading of our tissue  compartments thus increasing our No Decompression Limit.

He has successfully made his prototype, achieving a 32-36% Oxygen blend, and successfully installed at various places.
