    Hope you enjoy my rebreathers Here you see the original Biopak 45 with the dual hose and system 2 The original interior Steve took the CMF device out and replaced it with a hand operated valve Here you see the original outfit The unit comes was a CMF device offering 3 4 l oxygen per minute To much CL and oxygen the oxygen addition is now manual by opening the valve Pendulum conversion Front side of the refillable canister Here you see the handmade pendulum scrubber for the Biopak 45 The pendulum scrubber construction UW testing Great breather very silent long dives The counterlung is direct placed against the divers lungs WOB is reduced to a minimum Finished product Maximum depth 6 meter DT 4 hours depending on bottle size The inhalation hose plugged and the rebreather transformed to a pendulum system One of Steve s other projects a mix of parts from 5 rebreathers resulting in a fine working oxygen rebreather Split counter lungs IDA71 scrubber LAR 5 mouthpiece Related issues Biopak 45 tech specs Biopak 45 pictures and working principle Pendulum principle Backgrounds of oxygen rebreathers Database oxygen rebreathers More biopak 45 pictures on this web 2010 updates

    SCR which I named IDA 59SCR I have made some dives with IDA 59SCR in the beginning of May of this year 2004 The work to transform the IDA 59M to a IDA 59SCR had some stages It is reflected in section of my site devoted to this work http mukhin vif2 ru diving IDA 59SCR HTM Unfortunately all site only in Russian So I shall give a brief retelling Stage 1 I simply studied a design of the device and the operation manual here you find pictures of the original configuration You can find the link to the IDA59 manual on the download page in Russian only Stage 2 I have established DIN sockets on cylinders IDA 59M In these sockets I have established regulators In the scrubber I used a limy absorber instead of the original substance called O3 Instead of trimix I used air With an additional hose I have added the oxygen gauge I have tested the rebuild device in a pool Tests have shown the non stable contents of oxygen in an inhaled mix in such configuration Therefore I have made the decision on alteration IDA 59M in SCR Stage 3 IDA 59SCR From IDA

    then used more PVC plumbing to manufacture my mouthpiece I bought the breathing hoses from Pat at Oxycheck I was able to get the transfer whips I needed from John at Northeast Scuba Even though I already had my Nitrox certification I found Vance Harlow s book Oxygen Hacker s Companion to be an awesome source of info I learned lots of the technical stuff from the various web sites I found from searching the web and that s how I found the Crestline Experimental Dive Unit as well Thanks to CEDU and Dr Bob for constant encouragement Here is amore technical description of the unit complemented with some decisions made during the design phase I chose to make a back mounted rebreather because I wanted to make it from parts that were all readily available and also convenient Using an existing BC gave me the chance to not only use it as a buoyancy compensator but meant that I could use it as a mounting platform for everything from retractors to my PPO2 meter display Also having it back mounted I can take the thirteen foot tanks out of the holders in just minutes and put in thirty foot tanks Theoretically without changing the way the unit will fit on my body Plus most important LOL I wanted it to look cool and in my opinion my particular design just looks better worn on the back I also spend most of my time when I m diving on either my stomach or knees usually my knees motionless Just a habit I guess but I don t move around a lot during a dive I m usually aiming at something or waiting to aim at something LOL So the back mount is just better for the diving I do Of course being back mounted I can feel some slight WOB when inhaling on my stomach but no WOB is discernable at all when on my knees I m sure that not only is that due to the counterlung being level with my lungs when I am vertical but also because I made the scrubber unit seven inches in diameter Not only to lower WOB but to slow the gas passing through the scrubber material Hoping to preclude Hypercapnia during heavy work loads In fact during the first test I jogged in place and did other exercises for an hour and not only was there no discernable WOB but there turned out to be no need for baffles in the scrubber and after disassembly I found a very nice and even pattern of use in the sofnolime I originally put a BC over pressure valve in the bottom of the counterlung hoping to be able to purge water by just over pressurizing the loop but have yet to get it to work right and have in fact removed it I had some challenges with the actual construction I found that just using PVC glue in the conventional manner was a guarantee
