Pelagian DCCR training

Postby Andy » Sun Aug 30, 2009 10:30 am

If anyone is interested in this particular unit, there may be a chance to do training in New Zealand in December of this year.

Details of the unit here: http://www.rebreatherlab.com/


If you are interested in this, drop me a PM and I'll put you in touch with the organisers.

It's tentative at this stage - I'll PM you details.

Yeah, should be DCCCR.... didn't count my Cs. It's "Diver Controlled" CCR - a variation on mCCR, I guess. A semantic variation, from what I know of the unit.

A bit more info on it.

It uses adjustable needle valve with a standard 1st stage ( depth compensating) instead of a fixed orifice and non compensating 1st stage.

Gives the diver a bit more task loading to keep tuning the O2 flow but allows for deeper diving than other constant flow designs.

Maybe its just me but if a manufacturer of life support gear say's its ok to cut a dish washing glove for a dsv flapper valve for a drager loop it would give me little confidence in the rest of the product.At that price point I guess you get what you pay for.Anyone have any wob figures or testing from a credible agency on the unit.I want a little more than "we weighed the scrubber and this is what worked for us on our dives hey look were still alive so it must be fine for everyone else as the other manufacturers methods of testing are unrealistic".

Ahhh, Thanks Greg,
Andy has experience on IDA 71's too. Very interesting as my IDA is now ready to go as a mCCR. Still got several other mods in mind though.

Ok so if you make the counter lungs longer and tuck them further round under your armpit to declutter the chest and help trim in the prone positon, are you not creating a higher wob as you have to push and pull that volume from further away?
