    Analox o2 Eii analyzer

    that sounds about right for dry on land sensor usage.
    Even without "extra" care that is what one should achieve with such usage..
    Obviously very different in rebreather environment. pushing it past...

    $330 x 2 Reg fee
    $150 x 2 2 nights hotel (incl tax & fees)
    $50 tank of gas (if you're lucky)
    $100 incidentals (drinks, snacks,...

    Analox o2 Eii analyzer

    For any concerned buyers who either believe or disbelieve Nitrogenius's advice, the package is still air tight, vaccum sealed.

    On a side note, while I have not researched Nitrogenius's standpoint...

    Tek dive usa

    As an instructor I would expect my annual dues to be used for promoting the agency and the instructional aspect of it.

    Now how about sharing a booth with one of the many sponsors of the NSS-CDS?...

    Has anyone replaced the O2 senors in a CooTwo analyzer?

    I haven't had any problems until now. They are small, and convenient, because they combine O2, and CO in the same unit. I don't think you have to replace the CO sensor nearly as often as the O2...

    Tek Dive... anyone going?

    It seems to me that the instructors with the CDS would be the greatest beneficiaries of the CDS attending events like this. If this is the case then why are they not paying for the costs associated...
