A CCR is an artificial lung (aqualung) by which the diver’s exhaled breath is partially cleanedand filtered of carbon dioxide, mixed with additional oxygen, and then breathed again by the diver.
Hence the name “rebreather.” The TEK system comes in a variety of models with a variety of features all suitable for your advanced scuba diving needs.
Why would anyone use a CCR? Most divers who try and use rebreathers do so in order to get closer to marine life. The pressure waves and noise caused by exhaled bubbles can be a huge obstruction when interacting with marine life at close range.
Different types of CCR- here!
Moist air in CCRs also stop dry mouth occurrence and lessen the factors of diver exhaustion.
Divers using equipment benefit and enjoy a greater freedom of movement made possible by lightweight, one-piece breathing units. There are a number of semi-closed systems that, when completely configured and ready to dive, weigh less than a standard 80-cubic-foot cylinder.
They are fundamentally complex items of equipment anddo come with a variety of advanced features, designs and system varietiessuch as semi-closed circuits and fully closed-circuit systems, also called diversification series.
Some models come with extensive sets of features such as software and electronics designed for intelligent monitoring, vibrating alarms, quick-disconnect systems, and even heads-up-displays.
Some models may even offer enhanced features of convenience. For instance, to be ready to dive, the Prism2 TEK gear diver needs only to add a supply of cylinders.
The Prism 2 model conveniently accepts a very wide range of aluminum or steel cylinder sizes, available from your diving gear supplier.
While rebreather diving may sound scary, accidents may further be reduced by:
- Specialized Diver Training:Learn how to use the equipment and follow the procedures of using a particular design in order to minimize the chances of human-machine interaction errors.
- Higher Learning Curve: Because of the somewhat increased complexity of equipment, divers have to accept a slightly increased learning curve.
When you compare rebreathers on the market, consider that the TEK Gear Rebreathers are some of the most sought after scuba diving items today.
Expect and consider,though,that all models may have certain advantages and disadvantages over others. Unfortunately, a “try and dive with it first” attitude may not make you aware of minor shortcomings of a particular model right away.
This is why it is imperative to discuss with your diving instructor what type of diving gear you are presently using, as well as your goals with the equipment over the next three to five years.
Using Best TEK Rebreathers will nevertheless give you confidence that you have made a wise and technically sound choice, enhancing and maximizing your diving freedom and aquatic recreational experience.
