    Filters... Towels... We, here in Russia simply blow out dust from scrubber
    using a kind of electric dust blower. No dust, no filters, no troubles.

    I dont know what they are called but I used those green plastic pads made for scrubbing pots. Worked very well and good WOB.

    Re: Scrubber filters

    Are you guys saying it is ok to use just a stainless mesh without also using some paper scrim? If so, then how about 316 stainless, #165 mesh, 105 micron, 45% open area screen. Available pretty cheap on eBay. Compared to having to order JJ scrims.

    We use Brillo pads for the filter in carbide cap lamps too.

    Works much better than felt. Still allows the acetylene through when they get wet.

    You lose the CE rating (if that really matters to you) and you lose any water blocking ability you rely on. Also you need to be really careful when pouring the sorb to get rid of the really fine dust or it can be an irritant.
    On my home built stuff I tend to use just the mesh on the exhale side of the scrubber and either mesh (and be very careful about the dust) or a filter/scrim on the inhale side.
    For homebuilt stuff I tend to use 20 or 30 mesh (20 or 30 hole per inch) stainless, 30 mesh can be cut with paramedic scissors (about 3 uses before the scisors are too blunt) and 20 mesh needs a little more creativity (but seems to have better WOB).

    Hi
    If it helps, I use mosquito net in mine with a stainless steel mesh plate on top...

    This sounds like a great idea. The inhale side does need the dust and water protection, but that scrim seems to last forever anyway. It's the exhale side one that takes a lot of abuse and would be helpful to replace with the screen. I think I'll try this. Thanks Simon.

    Re: Scrubber filters

    Would a scrim kit as used by INSPO do the job?
    At 7 euro for two, sounds cheaper option than buying and cutting Stainless steel mesh.
    I have noticed even a 50 / 50 mesh (depending what size AWG etc) still lets 797 fall through
    Keep it simple try the cheaper option and less effort and money is wasted
    I am uncertain about size but would think this is already certified and tested

    Re: Scrubber filters

    Believe it or not 2 stainless screens cost about the same as a pair of scrims. Actually a bit less since my source is buy 2 and get 1 free.

    Your best friends could be the MK IV divers, there're 2 scrims in every scrubber canister they throw away!
