Rebreather CO2 Absorbent


The Molecular Products Sofnolime and Micropore ExtendAir carbon dioxide (CO2) absorbents we sell are ONLY for use in sport and technical diving semi-closed and closed circuit rebreather systems. Because there are a great many types and formulations of carbon dioxide absorbent, it is critical to use only the specific CO2 absorbent recommended by the manufacturer of your specific model rebreather.

We are proud of the quality of our customer service, but we will NOT offer advice on CO2 absorbent selection or use other than what you find published here. If you are uncertain as to what product to purchase, we strongly recommend you seek formal training for your specific model rebreather. We do not sell CO2 absorbent for any purpose other than diving.

It is critical to follow the specific absorbent use recommendations of your rebreather manufacturer for your specific model. Use of the improper product can cause problems such as excessive work of breathing or shortened scrubber times. Recommendations from some rebreather manufacturers are:

  • Ambient Pressure Diving recommends Sofnolime brand 787 grade 8-12 mesh absorbent for their Inspiration and Evolution rebreathers.
  • Hollis recommends Sofnolime brand 787 grade 8-12 mesh absorbent for their Hollis Explorer rebreathers.

Boon Wurrung / Bunurong country

Traditional Owners — This dive site is in the traditional Country of the Boon Wurrung / Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation. This truly ancient Country includes parts of Port Phillip, from the Werribee River in the north-west, down to Wilson's Promontory in the south-east, including the Mornington Peninsula, French Island and Phillip Island, plus Western Port. We wish to acknowledge the Boon Wurrung as Traditional Owners. We pay respect to their Ancestors and their Elders, past, present and emerging.

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
