    Getting confused on scrubber designs

    Hi,
    Can someone please assist me?
    I'm getting confused about different scrubber desings and the flow of air.

    This is what I figured so far:
    - Axial design travels the gas up or down thru the absorbent.
    - Radial design travels the gas down in the middle and out thru the absorbent.
    - Bi-axial travels the gas down thru the middle turns and travel up thru the absorbent.

    But what is Co-axial? Is that the same as radial just with the opposite gas flow or?

    And are there more different designs?

    Some genies in here?

    Thank you.

    Some radial Designs the gas travels outside the scrubber into the internal tube.

    I think you are making this overly complicated.

    There are 2 scrubber types,
    Axial
    Radial

    All the other stuff you mention is nothing more than design differences in them. this is all about the path for the gas to travel as it goes through the scrubber. Axial means enters one end and exits the other end. Radial means it flows from center outward or vice versa.

    Co-axial will provide suboptimal TV reception. You should really be going HDMI with the rest of us who live in 2013

    Shearwater predator definitely needs HDMI...the screen is so nice.
    Others are fine with coax.
