Service

Scuba Clinic is a specialised scuba workshop dedicated to equipment service and repairs with an objective to maintain all your dive gear in perfect working conditions. We take our service works seriously as we believe scuba equipment is essentially life support equipment and hope to raise a bar in terms of service standards within the diving community, because there is no substitution for a quality service.

Scuba Clinic is the only IDEST approved test centre in the South of Thailand. This means we employ only trained and approved technicians for cylinder testing, we follow applicable standards, equipment is calibrated and tested on a regular basis and have a code of practice and strict procedures to follow.

Regulator Service

  • Your equipment is booked in and tagged upon receipt. Each unit is documented and placed in individual containers to prevent confusion and mixing up.
  • Before any servicing is carried out, the regulator is put on a test bench to check the intermediate and cracking pressure. Pretesting will help us determine if any defects or performance deficiencies exist.
  • The regulator unit is then completely disassembled into individual components with the use of special tools as required.
  • At every step, we only work with one unit at a time to ensure no part from regulator A will be put in regulator B, even if they are the same model and from the same owner.
  • All components parts are then cleaned in a heated ultrasonic cleaner. In general the components will receive Simple Green bath and acid bath for metal parts or as per manufacturer's specification. Making sure parts are grease- and corrosion-free, they are then dried with low pressure compressed air.
  • Each part is then carefully inspected for damages, wear and tear. We use a microscope for critical part such as the crown orifice.
  • The regulator is then reassembled. Only original parts are installed, using special tools as required. Broken or worn-out parts are also replaced. We only use the manufacturer's specified lubricants.
  • Both your first stage and second stages are then professionally "fine-tuned" on a test bench using HP manager and magnehelic gauge. We adjust the regulators to manufacturer's specifications to ensure optimal performance; your regulator will breathe like new. If required or requested, a flow test can be carried out.
  • Finally, we carry out a leak test as a final quality assurance to confirm the proper functioning of the rebuild regulator by putting the pressurised regulator in a water bucket to ensure there is no leak or free-flow. The worksheet's quality assurance is then completed to double check no steps were omitted.
  • Old parts are bagged and returned to the customer. A service certificate is supplied for each piece of equipment (Click here to download sample report). We also provide a 30-days warranty cover for the service performed by us.

NOTE: oxygen service of regulators is available.

Cylinder Visual Inspection

  • Upon receipt, your cylinder and valve are booked in and tagged, noting the essential details and its existing condition. Our inspection procedure is performed according to BS EN 1968:2002, BS EN 1802:2002 or EN 11623:2002 as appropriate.
  • To avoid confusion and mixing up of parts, the maximum number of cylinders worked on at a time is limited to 5.
  • The cylinder is then drained. All accessories, dirt, paint and external corrosion are removed. The cylinder is placed on a vise and externally inspected for defects.
  • With an ultrasonic thickness gauge, we also ensure that the cylinder's remaining wall thickness meets the manufacturer's specification.
  • Making sure that the cylinder is empty, the valve is then removed from the cylinder using dedicated special valve removal tools.
  • Next, the general internal condition is and cylinder neck threads are assessed. If required, cylinder will be cleaned, tumbled and dried.
  • If required or requested, an eddy current test will be performed.
  • The cylinder valve is carefully inspected for damage and all threads on the valve are thoroughly inspected for defects and with go and no-go thread gauges. We will make sure the cylinder valve will match your cylinder.
  • We may then service the valve if required or requested.
  • If the cylinder and valve passes all the above inspections, the cylinder is to be returned to service.
  • The valve is then reinstalled onto your cylinder ensuring the cylinder is free of humidity. Manufacturer's specified lubricant is applied to the valve threads only and the valve will be torqued to the correct specifications.
  • The assembly is now completed and all accessories reinstalled. An EOI sticker is applied, and your cylinder is ready to go for the next 12 months.
  • As a quality assurance, the cylinder will be filled and checked for any leakages.
  • Old parts (if any) are bagged and returned to the customer along with professional inspection certificate (Click here to download sample report) which documents all inspection criteria, values and recommendations for owner to keep as a reference.

Cylinder Hydrostatic Inspection

  • Once a visual inspection is performed and the cylinder has passed all the tests, without refitting the valve, the cylinder is filled with water and placed into the test jacket.
  • The cylinder is the pressurized in the pot to check for expansion in terms of "permanent set" which is specified by the manufacturer or standards.
  • If the cylinder meets the specifications, the cylinder will then dried, re-valved, stamped, and returned to customers with official documentation as reference.

Cylinder Fills

  • Safety is the first priority in our fill station.
  • Before filling any cylinder, we perform a cursory inspection or a mini-VIP. This includes: checking the remaining cylinder pressure, an inspection for external damages and ensuring both the visual inspection sticker and current hydrostatic stamp are still in date and valid.
  • For air, we fill at a recommended fill rate of 20 to 40 bar per minute (based on a standard S80 cylinder).
  • With our booster pump, we are able to fill Oxygen or Helium to up to 200 bar.
  • Our large air bank also enables a quick turnaround for all your cylinder fills.
  • Scuba Clinic is a certified Bauer PureAir station (www.bauerpureair.com). We recognise the importance of clean air and will go extra miles to ensure that the air we deliver to our customers meets EN12021 at all times. We do not repack our filters.
  • Quarterly air analysis is performed, using a Drager Aerotest Simultan test system.
  • Carbon dioxide and humidity levels are continuously monitored during the fill process.
Regulator Service Regulator Service

BCD Service and Inspection

  • Once we receive your BCD, it is booked in and tagged, noting existing conditions and other important details.
  • A visual inspection is performed to assess the current condition of the BCD.
  • A charged low pressure hose is then fitted to the BCD. All functional aspects of the LPI are thoroughly checked.
  • The low pressure inflator may then be serviced if requested or due, using only original manufacturer's spare parts.
  • Next, we check the functioning of the dump valve(s) and over pressure relief valve on the BCD by over inflating it and performing a dry leak test by letting the BCD sit for an hour with air in it and checking if it holds.
  • If applicable, the integrated weight system of the BCD will then be checked for wear and tear and general functioning.
  • Remaining components of the BCD such as zipper, buckles, hook and loop, stitching and backpack are also carefully inspected.
  • As final quality assurance, a wet leak test is performed to ensure there are no air leaks.
  • The BCD will then be returned to the owner with a service report. (Click here to download sample report)

Cylinder Fills
  • By law, all scuba cylinders require a 5-year periodic hydrostatic test and a 1 year visual inspection test.
  • Any scuba cylinder with an expired Hydrostatic test stamp date will not be filled.
  • Any scuba cylinder without a valid visual inspection sticker will not be filled.
  • Any Nitrox or Trimix mixed gas cylinder without a valid Oxygen service sticker will not be filled.
  • Nitrox and Trimix will only be supplied to certified Nitrox and Trimix divers.
  • Any scuba cylinder supplied empty is considered to have been flooded with seawater and is subject to a mandatory visual inspection prior to filling. The normal visual inspection & valve removal fees apply.
  • All Nitrox cylinders supplied with air in them are subject to mandatory visual inspection and Oxygen cleaning prior to filling. The normal visual inspection, Oxygen cleaning & valve removal fees apply.

Cylinder Testing
  • The Regulations of the EN 1802, EN 1968, EN 11623, TIS 358-2551, ASSET CP2, IDEST Code of Practice CP11:2011and the manufactures standards govern the testing procedures for scuba cylinders. Scuba Clinic Co Ltd rigorously abides by all the current regulations and recommendations regarding the visual inspection, hydrostatic testing and treatments of scuba cylinders.
  • The 5 yearly hydrostatic tests rarely 'fail' a scuba cylinder. The vast majority of condemned scuba cylinders are removed from service because of non-correctable damage, corrosion, cracks, thread problems, distortion or other abnormalities detected during the visual inspection.
  • Cylinders subjected to visual inspection or hydrostatic test may 'PASS' be 'REJECTED' or be 'CONDEMNED'. A cylinder that has 'PASSED' may be released for another period of service. A cylinder that is 'REJECTED' needs work carried out on it (such as tumbling or cleaning) before it may be returned to service. A cylinder that is 'CONDEMNED' suffers from a non-correctable defect that prevents it from ever being used for storing compressed air again. The condemned cylinder will be destroyed but cutting in at least 2 pieces before being returned to the customer.
  • Aluminium Scuba Cylinders marked SP6498 and some other markings prior to 1988 (including aluminium 6351 cylinders) are subject to progressive cracks in the cylinder neck area that grows with time and eventually cause the cylinder to explode killing the cylinder filler and destroying the dive shop. The cracks are often not visible by visual inspection, and are usually only detectable by NDT eddy current testing.
  • All cylinders supplied for hydrostatic testing are subject to a (FREE) mandatory visual inspection prior to the hydrostatic test. Cylinders 'REJECTED' by the visual inspection must have the abnormality corrected PRIOR to the hydrostatic test.
  • All cylinders subjected to tumbling to remove corrosion (this might have been identified by an annual visual inspection for example) are subject to a mandatory hydrostatic test AFTER cleaning. The normal hydrostatic test fees apply.
