Planning to do longer dives, go deeper or just think it looks cool with a CCR? Either way the rEvo hCCR is a must try before you decide on buying a unit.
The first time I tried a rEvo i fell in love, sais Jani Santala, chief instructor at Visit Plura. The unit is, from a cave divers perspective, the most redundant unit on the markets. The robust and flat construction makes it streamlined and perfect even for smaller caves or restrictions in wrecks.
10 benefits of the rEvo hCCR
1. Slim back mount
Makes it easy to fit even when doing penetrations through wrecks or caves. 2. Protected counter lungs
A solid titanium housing is protecting the counter lungs, one of the most precious parts of the machine, preventing tares and friction damages.
3. Hybrid unit
When diving a hybrid unit manually the diver is more aware of what is going on in the machine. Your awareness and buoyancy is better. However if stressful situations occur or you are heavily task loaded you still have the option to switch to electronic mode.
4. Dual scrubber
The dual scrubber system is designed in a way that reduces your sofnolime usage with up to 50%, compared to other commonly used units on the market. It is also a system that ensures redundancy. Easier to pack, less packing mistakes.
5. Truly independent and redundant electronics
Having the possibility for three independent electronics that does NOT share oxygen sensors. All cables are independent and if something breaks down while you are on a divetrip - you just need to take off the faulty system, and you can still keep on diving with two independent systems.
6. 3 sizes for optimal fit
Having three optional sizes of the unit, makes it a good fit for different size divers. The small one is small enough that it fits in a carry-on luggage.
During a normal dive you mainly use the top scrubber, which gives you the chance to cycle. The rEvo Monitoring system is constantly keeping track on the scrubber time and scrubber cycle time. With this you know how the chemical processes are affected by temperature, workload and other factors. You do not have to guess whether the scrubber is good for the next dive or not. Safety first.
