Rebreather Diving Overview
Rubicon Diving is a rebreather friendly Dive Centre and welcomes divers who wish to dive on their own rebreathers. In addition, we can provide rebreather try dives, training from Level 2 (40 metres) to Level 5 Explorer (no depth limit) and instructor training on the following systems: AP Inspiration and Evolution, Megalodon and Copis, KISS, Liberty, SF2 and JJ-CCR.
How do Closed System Rebreathers work?
What Other Advantages do Rebreathers Offer?The other major advantage of closed circuit systems is that they maintain a constant partial pressure of oxygen throughout a dive. This means that instead of planning an EAN mix for a given depth, the rebreather constantly changes the mix to suit the depth you are at. This way the system is continually changing the oxygen content to maximize 02 levels, and therefore minimize Nitrogen levels. By doing this closed circuit systems can increase your dive time over conventional open circuit or semi-closed rebreather Nitrox diving. By always ensuring that the gas mix you are breathing is ideal for the depth you are at, decompression times are much reduced. As closed circuit rebreathers are more complicated pieces of equipment than traditional open circuit systems they require more involved training. However, using these systems should not be beyond the realms of most competent divers and if you hold an Advanced EANX certification and have good buoyancy control and discipline, then CCR diving should not be too difficult.
The advantages offered by closed circuit Rebreathers are numerous and as many of our satisfied customers have found are well worth the investment in terms of time and money.
