Well having read all the replies to this post I thought best check out the link.
It seems to me that its just mod 1 stuff bulled up a bit. Don't want too much or too little in the loop. Anything else doesn't make a major difference.
As far as passing us all to a commercial organisation well does it matter because we may learn something and it costs nowt. Suits me here in Yorkshire.😉
The actual breathable loop volume of a rebreather is not a figure one normally finds associated with a units sales literature: typically being an unknown!
CE calls for only 4.5L breathable loop volume! and even then it is not something routinely tested nor data published on. Feel free to prove that I am wrong on this!
I can only find evidence of one type of rebreather having even been tested as having met this requirement. http://www.deeplife.co.uk/or_files/D...ume_090911.pdf Simply adding up the size of the CLs fitted to a CCR isn't sufficient - as not all the volume is breathable - dependent on the individual unit design if the CLs are caged or how the diver fits their CLs if OTS or even the conflict with other equipment like wings, torches or cylinders!
Wondered how long before some pdf's would appear
Apparently becoming a grandad
Now there is a philosophy question!
What is the minimum loop volume of a mythical rebreather?
zero or infinite?
Come on, own up. Who said....
Mal - get your red pencil ready :0
At last, the wait is over and he's back, with the regularity of an unwelcome season! We must be due for an update on the latest Apoc newsletter and imminent release of the latest model that includes that automatically controlled BCD that's being discussed on the other thread...
