Abstract
Canadian Submeribles Inc. (CanSub) has developed a two-amn emergency life support system for use in small submersibles or confined environments at atmospheric pressures. A prototype system was tested using a breathing simulator to evaluate the performance characteristics of the carbon dioxide scrubbers. Effects of different baffle configurations, flow directions through the absorbent beds and environmental temperatures on the endurance of the scrubber were examined. A comparative test was performed on the absorbent bed of the Closed-Circuit Rebreather Diving System, CCR-1000 manufactured by BioMarine Industries.
