Innovative overalls will survive in cold waterOn 2017-04-10 by Vivan Austin
The coldest water for the survivors of a ship or plane crash, which had to be launched. Low temperatures immediately lead to hypothermia and then to human death. Bob Duncan, inventor and pilot of Alaska Airline, has developed a special suit that can save lives.
The cold water man will last only a few minutes, so in the event of a catastrophe, ships are often equipped with survival suits designed for crews who protect them from the cold, allowing them to safely wait for help. Unfortunately, the suits are not perfect and they can survive for only a few hours, so if the help does not arrive at that time, it will not make much sense.
Bob Duncan, an Alaskan Airline pilot who has been involved in inventions for a while, has developed a suit that greatly increases the chance of survival. The invention is called the Stearns Thermashield 24+ Immersion Suit and, as the constructor claims, is able to keep us alive for up to 24 hours.
The key element of his design is a face mask and a system to distribute the warm breath of the wearer throughout the suit, isolating it from the cold at the same time. In short, they survived the heat itself. Naturally, the dress is fully sealed, covered with a reflective coating and equipped with emergency lighting and a transmitter that sends an SOS signal.
Duncan claims that his invention allows him to survive in cold water about 4-5 times longer, compared to traditional survival suits. It is intended primarily for seafarers who need to repair external plating of ships or drilling rigs, so it also does not restrict the movement of the body.
