Poseidon MKVI rebreather
The world’s first rebreather for recreational divers. It’s a fully closed, fully automated unit that will make you see diving in a different light and sound. BLUE LABEL DIVING can teach up to 60m Mixed gas on the Poseidon MKVI, with our IT Ben Reymenants in Thailand Phuket.
POSEIDON DISCOVERY MKVI Rebreather
World’s first recreational rebreather
The system comprises a breathing loop (mouthpiece, hoses, counter lungs and backpack) with associated electronics module, and two independent gas cylinders. One has 100% compressed oxygen which is added to the breathing loop as the diver consumes it. The second cylinder typically contains compressed air “diluent” to compensate for compression in the breathing loop as the diver goes deeper. It’s also a backup system, containing enough oxygen for the diver to breathe directly in an emergency.Poseidon’s MKVI has 5 big advantages over traditional open-circuit equipment: 3 hours typical dive time, Safer and easier to use, Lighter and smaller, No decompression stops and Silent operation makes you part of the environment; not just a visitor.
Compared to Open Circuit, rebreathers have 2 big advantages: Triple real dive time, Far less disturbing to marine life. Poseidon’s recreational unit has 4 big extra advantages:
- Safer and easier to use
- Lighter and smaller
