The rEvo III mCCR is a manually operated closed circuit rebreather based on the CMF (constant mass flow) principle. It is also available as a hCCR (hybrid), eCCR (electronic) and rMS (scrubber monitor) version.
The rEvo III is unique in using dual scrubbers and a cycle system. Two versions of the rEvo III are available: the Standard version is equipped with 3 litre cylinders and the smaller, mini version with 2 litre cylinders. However both versions can hold 3 and 2 litre cylinders. This is also true for the new micro-version. The unit is very low-profile and light to carry. This makes it a real joy to dive with.
To be fully informed about the options of this rebreather, the digital DiveCAN system and the optional Shearwater electronics a dedicated training is essential. The IART unit-specific user course, combined with the use of the course manual, will prepare you with the knowledge and skills needed to safely dive your chosen version of the rEvo III within the limits set by the Level I standards. It covers, in addition to extending and deepening the theoretical knowledge of the participant, training in pool/confined water and not less than 6 open water dives with not less than 480 minutes in-water time.
The instructor : student ratio is not permitted to exceed 1:2.
This course will prepare you to become a competent, disciplined and knowledgeable rEvo III diver who understands:
- The physiological principles behind rebreather diving
- The construction of the unit including assembly, disassembly, cleaning and maintenance
- The possible dangers and potential mistakes
- How to employ the best diving techniques with the unit
- How to rescue another rebreather diver
The training reflects the standards required by the manufacturer of the rebreather. IART is authorized by the manufacturer to conduct this training. The course manual is constantly revised and improved in consultation with the manufacturer to reflect new developments resulting from technical improvements or gained through dive experience. You will receive the current edition from your IART rEvo III instructor.
