    I made a neoprene cover for my Modified CCR Dolphin scrubber for diving cold water. (<6-7C) It helped with dive duration by cutting down some heat losses especially with He mixes.

    I used an O2 compatible solenoid valve keyed to the compressor. If it wasn't pumping, O2 didn't flow in. There is a pic with the valve.

    I did it for years. It is very important to watch higher O2% as it will shorten the life and increase maintenance of compressor valves. It is absolutely a way to go for trimix.
