    Shearwater to Develop Scrubber Capacity Sensor

    Shearwater Research has just been granted a license that allows for the development of a sensor system capable of measuring a rebreatherís remaining scrubber capacity.

    Interesting.
    How will it measure remaining capacity?
    By way way of a temp stick?
    By O2 sensors being placed at different depths of a scrubber bed ( like a temp stick)?

    Often wondered of the benefits of add a CO2 sensor between both rEvo scrubbers.

    being done by shearwater, I'm sure it'll be done right. So yes, I also look forward to a retrofit on my JJ :)

    out of curiosity...

    Why does shearwater need a license to do research??
    And who approve that license??

    I can only assume, but if they're getting a license, they're probably using existing technology... From the article, " This invention was developed by a scientist at the Navy Experimental Dive Unit in Panama City, FL."

    This is great news for the rebreather community.
    We all know that no company in the industry can do worthwhile R&D without large inductrial or military financial support.
    I am quite positive this will result in a breakthrough .. excuse the pun in how we monitor scrubbers.

    Maby they need the license, because a patent already exist for what their proposing.
