    Just subscribing, would be interesting to see what an extended Ray scrubber costs and its effect on the duration...

    Hi Chris,

    Martin at TecMe (http://www.tecme.de/) has come back to me as quoted:

    "I will have a reference number an picture on the TecMe website when ready.

    At this moment we call it “extended ray scruber set”

    Regards, Martin"

    So you can order it from him by quoting "extended ray scruber set" or wait until he has made the first set and uploaded it to his website. The cost and size is as stated in earlier threads. I'm ordering mine after pay-day.

    Regards

    Matt

    You must know that the huge Ray scrubber shown above "only" hold 2.2 Kg of sorb...
    Due to the weight of the sorb this bulky scrubber suddenly seems to have weak wall, also when filled the sorb weight push hard the bottom part and its a failure point.
    You have to carefully secure the bottom ring.
    Now you are awared and youll do what you want with this information.

    Thank you, Matt, I'll keep an eye on Martin's website... Now we just need to convince him to start making the Ray sensor heads again :P
    (or where are all of you putting the sensors?)

    I'm not actually anywhere near diving with my Ray yet though, (just got it 3days ago) but I'm really looking forward to getting training and then diving with it later in the year. Lol, already working on my "nice to have" list!

Thats a lifetime increase of 1.7. So my 85 mins goes up to 144.

    That is approx the same scrubber mass as the Dolphin, which Drager themselves rate for up to 4hr under normal SCR diving conditions (see attached report)

    This would also mean that mCCRay divers could look to the knowledge/experience of the mCCR Dolphin divers with regards to scrubber duration, shouldn't it?

    :)

    I reckon this 127x121 acrylic might make it work.

    Will certainly facilitate testing.

    Hmm, never thought about that, I might have a length of that around. All that is then needed would be some clamping method. Is that 5 inch OD, and 4.75 inch ID?

    Any update(s)?

    Does anyone have a photo and/or review of the TecMe scrubber yet?

    And what about the Acrylic version- have you figured out the closing mechanism?

    Nothing yet from TecMe.
    I've thought about the fixing for the acrylic tube. I'm thinking of cutting two 10mm wide rings from the tube itself, dividing each if them into two semicircular pieces and then gluing the resulting pairs to the 310mm long acrylic tube, 8mm from each end. the idea is to form a crude replica of the grooves that the standard Drager clamp rings fit into.
