    Scrubber monitor question

    They make scrubber monitor what is based on temperature of sofnolime. Why they don't just make one extra cell for CO2 reading in the loop? So far as I know, there is good technology available for measuring C02 levels. Example, when the reading is rising near some set point, you know how much you have used your scrubber time.

    There have been a lot of discussion on this topic, you might want to do a search to see the threads.

    So far as I know, there is good technology available for measuring C02 levels.
    Are these technologies workable in a very moist/wet/damp environment like in a CCR loop ? And small enough ? Cheap enough ?

    I believe those were the issues...

    As Phi said, the biggest problem seems to be to get reliable result in a wet conditions, such as rb loop.

    But when CO2 starts getting through the scrubber is already land fill and you need to be off it. A useful scrubber monitor wants to tell us the bad news well in advance so we can modify the plan and get out smoothly. Temperature based systems aren't ideal but they are an attempt at something more than just a clock of time used, which is all we had before.

    Question: Is there anybody who has had a scrubber problem with a temp stick that can post the CCL file so we can see what the handset said or did not say?
