BACK MOUNTED COUNTERLUNGS TYPE 1
The AP Back Mounted Counterlungs (BMCL) were introduced in 2012 as an option for all AP rebreathers as an alternative to the over-the-shoulder counterlungs which have been standard on all AP CCRs since 1997. They can either be fitted as an upgrade to existing AP rebreathers or specified when ordering any new AP unit
Why Back Mounted Counterlungs?
The Back Mounted Counterlung design is the product of many years experience and development involving extensive manned and unmanned trials and testing. Our primary goal was to optimise the work-of-breathing performance of the lung
As a result, we believe we have now produced a unique back mounted counterlung - the best available and comparable to the renowned high performance of our existing over-the-shoulder design
