Title: A STUDY OF CARBON DIOXIDE ELIMINATION FROM SCUBA, WITH STANDARD AND MODIFIED CANISTERS OF THE U. S. NAVY CLOSED-CIRCUIT OXYGEN RIG.
Author: Goodman, MW
Abstract: The canister from a U. S. Navy Standard Oxygen Closed Circuit Breathing Apparatus was modified to accomodate reduced loads of pellet Baralyme. Polystyrene rods, inserted longitudinally, were used to occupy the vacated intracanister space. In a controlled laboratory environment, and with a mechanical respirator for the simulation of respiratory and CO2 production values, the relationships between absorbent weight and swimming duration were determined. A number of canister design and absorbent function characteristics were concurrently studied.
