    off an old anesthetic machine This saved me having to make the hardest part which is the container for the soda lime It is a coaxial design but otherwise is based on the one on Mark Munro s website I am particularly pleased with the lid which my mate Phil Booth turned and milled from 20mm acrylic The cylinder itself is cast acrylic not as thick as I would have liked due to the cost I like to be able to look into the scrubber and see obvious problems happening with the sensors or soda lime It should have better thermal insulation than a metal scrubber also The scrubber lid contains an overpressure valve from a BCD 3 R22D O2 sensors and the inflow and outflow tubes The central white 30mm PVC tube on the underside snugs down over an O ring on the soda lime canister The cable contains the wires from the sensors to the Mark Munro panel shown below I have joined all the earth contacts to a common earth so only 4 wires leave the scrubber lid On the left is the canister unit which slides down inside the acrylic tube COUNTER LUNGS These are made from the PVC backed nylon I mentioned Easy to glue and sew I will see how long they last The lungs sit inside 4 PVC tube which is open to the water The tubes afford the lungs some protection and are also used to mount the tanks The C Ls are kept as close to my body as possible The right photo shows the Dräger dosing head off a RAY which pierces the PVC and enters the inhale C L via a P connector so it can easily be detached Gas is supplied from the Diluent bottle which also feed

    There you can see my kiss O 2 dosage device 2 mp hoses are connected to a fixed mp regulator one on which I put a Scubapro BC inflator as a demand valve the second containing in line a 7 micros Swagelock filter and a Norgren 0 004 inch orifice taped and pushed in the hose This simple dosage device makes it possible to use one regulator for de demand valve a depth compensated one and the fixed MP regulator to feed the orifice this configuration makes it possible to inject O 2 deeper the mp pressure equivalent depth click This picture shows the twin hoses with on the right a double sensor holder made of a PVC croce and 2 unions to remove the holder and rince and on the left a PVC pipe used to equalize the 2 hoses length the oxymeter housing home made and the back plate and harness are also visible A back view showing the fiberglass shell and original 5 liter with a din valve instead of the Dr ä ger one click See the Dr ä ger port added to the expiration bag where the o2 is injected unfortunately close to the exhaust

  • World smallest CCR by Dave
    to an 02 rebreather about 5 years ago This allows me to watch what the loop is doing and lets me play a bit by not fully purging the loop with 02 at the surface sort of like Hass used to do only this time with the ability to watch and know what the PP02 is After a while I started playing to see how far I could go with this The bottom line is that I finally managed to master the technique of fully inflating the bag with air taking a deep breath like I was freediving and the kicking hard to get down to perhaps 30 feet where both my lungs and the bag would be at half original volume going onto the loop there PP02 now 0 4 ish and then adding only 02 as I continued to descend Using this method I was successful in diving to about 60 feet or so on a regular basis using nothing but an 02 rebreather a freedivers wetsuit long freedivers fins a mask and a weightbelt This was and is truly freedom in silence with no equipment to speak of gracefully swimming around one with the sea in every way I was always careful on ascent to do a full 02 purge at about 30 feet so the mix was good to go to the surface with and all was well But Deeper blue water beckoned Solution A Spare Air I took to carrying a tiny little emergency SCUBA bottle and using the above method would get to about 40 50 feet Pausing there I would close the loop exhale into the water take a deep breath from the Spare Air and then exhale that air back into the loop after going back onto the DSV Result I just added diluent to the loop and could go deeper I would repeat every 30 or so feet and one day I managed to look up through the water at the surface 140 feet above me still wearing noting but fins thin wetsuit mask weightbelt and the tiny 02 rebreather and thinking Boy this is really neat Boy O Boy I m really damned deep without any backup Shit Nobody would believe me if I told them I managed to pull this off I must be the bravest diver in the water today or the dumbest I better go back up It worked but was not Clean In fact it was scary as shit So the challenge was set forth and I sallied into the Little Diveshop of Horrors to again perform the unthinkable task of ripping apart entirely good diving equipment to once again produce a Frankenstein Monster Here is the result of that challenge I took the Spare Air and turned it into a manual auto diluent addition system for the loop Basically I stuck a P connector into the counterlung of the rig machined an adapter for the mouthpiece of the Spare Air so it ll plug into

    Nice handle to have grip on the housing Here is the button for switching the double oxygen sensors off and on Very nice construction of adding the gasses to the loop No hoses in front off the diver and a very reliable method for adding diluent or oxygen manualy Integrated accupack for the lamp P ports on the counterlung for oxygen sensors Accu s and switch for double oxygen sensors

    feet for you imperial freaks tank with a Poseidon 1st stage feed the unit The first stage is ambient referenced thus allowing a slight increase in fresh gas flow with increased depth but also makes it possible to use an ordinary 2nd stage as a bailout just like the Dr ä ger Ray The gas to the wing and the dry suit is also feed from this the first stage
