CO2 Scrubbers Following Last week’s excerpt from the training and ops manual on carbon dioxide, we round that off with an excerpt from the chapter covering support and allied equipment. Specifically, CO2 scrubbers, or sinks as they are also known. Gas management is the name of the game in all things diving and hyperbaric. Operators and supervisors must have a
