MODE CO2 absorbent cartridges
- (4) MODE CO2 Absorbent Cartridges
ExtendAir® CO2 absorbents have been developed for use in military, commercial and recreational rebreathers. The main advantages of the cartridge technology are:
- Single use packaging
- Lack of dust compared to granules
- Lowest work of breathing possible
- Excellent shock and vibration resistance
All ExtendAir® rebreathers are optimized for CO2 duration to .5% at conditions determined by the relevant industry standards. Micropore uses computer aided flow analysis and in house test lab equipment designed around the US Navy NEDU lab set up to meet design goals. Integration is best accomplished by designing around the ExtendAir® cartridge in order to minimize the size of the absorbent canister and to achieve a low Work of Breathing. Uniform air flow is a design requirement that must be designed into the canister in order to reach optimal efficiency. Once the engineering work has been done the performance of the canister will be consistent and predictable as shown in resulting test data.
