    2- original closure system for removable system
    3- exhaust valve hand made rubber seal was changed for an original apeks patch
    4- collectors all over the machine where originally glued with silicone which have been modified to carry proper orings
    5- original aluminum switch-block with seaquest style quick connects have been changed for a chromed brass Omniswivel block with highland shut-off valves and Swagelok QC6 connections
    6- the rebreather head has been drilled to fit a single cell Draeger p-port
    7- the top of the scrubber canister has been drilled to fit the draeger p-port
    8- the draeger style single cell housing has been modified to have an oring that seals with the scrubber canister inside the rebreather

    Thanks for sharing your setup.

    So your P-Port goes behind the scrubber ? Is the responsiveness of this placement better than the Tec-me solution ?

    The P02 Display looks like the ciruitboard of the jetsam triple in a different housing.

    I was planning on changing the PVC Tubes for Carbon fibre, at least for the bellow part.

    Could you post pictures of your switchblock configuration ?

    Nice job. Where did you buy this stainless steel frame?

    I would like to modify my Satori as well.

    Do you have some drawings with measurements from the above modifications?

    Thanks in advance,
    Theo

    Re: Modified Satori

    Hey Guys, sorry for the late reply, I have been busy tuning up the satori a little more.

    So for the first question, if the PO2 reading is faste enough, yes, it's fast and very accurate.

    Is this a similar board as the jetsam reader, YES it is. In a delrin case with an acrylic window. At the back there is a screw-in coin made out of stainless steel for adjusting the cell reading.

    The Frame comes from an Italian producer called UTS, not sure if he still produces these but I am thinking of modifying it a little to get the tanks closer and to have the most similar solution to the new NT2 frame.

    Regarding the drilling, I do not have drawings because I went to see my lathe turner and just explained what I needed and he did a great job

    The cell I am using is a NRC with molex connection and I am happy with it until now.

    About the carbon fiber, in my case it is not necessary because I use flat bottomed 8.5 eurcylinders and the canister does not touch the ground when standing up.

    I am still playing a bit with the manifold position and as I said thinking of having the tanks sitting a little more close to each other.

    The switch block I have made myself with pieces comming from normal scuba shops and a block from omniswivel with 6 3/8x unf exits. I bought the swagelok connections in brass to see how they do, I have had SS qc6's in the past and they rust a little when diving a lot in sea water.

    There are some modifications I have made after posting this post, I have turned the breathing direction around, added some weights on the bov hoses, added a thick bungee into the frame for having a telescopic switch block and not stress the injectors.

    some pics:
