In april I made a post about my CCR friendly operation. Post was published here, in Rebreather World and Scubaboard. Some time has passed and I wanted to update on the information provided.
A few days ago I received here in the Galapagos Islands a few kegs of Sofnolime 8-12. I also imported some 2 and 3 litter cylinders. I have spent the last few months figuring out a reliable medical grade oxygen supply, the import costs of sorb, etc. With this import complete and all the major concerns figured out, I can proudly say that full support for rebreather divers is now available in the Galapagos Islands.
The items to be provided to CCR divers here are:
2 or 3 litter steel cylinders with AP valves
6 or 10 cubic meter cylinders with medical grade O2
Haskell Sport Booster with filling whips
Sofnolime 8 – 12 mesh (1 – 2.5mm) Expiry date is 2014
Required fittings and adapters
Non O2 clean trans-filling whip for diluent cylinders
If you need any further support regarding bookings, logistics, advice or guidance I’m more than happy to help.
Hope to meet you soon down here,
