RBV07A/SO/35S - Single Oxygen Inflator with Solenoid Shutoff Valve (for BMCL)
The Single Oxygen Inflator with GC3 (Flowstop) Shutoff Valve allows the Solenoid to be quickly and easily isolated on Inspiration rebreathers with back mounted counterlungs (BMCL).
This is useful when performing a diluent flush cell performance check - to prevent the solenoid from firing as the PO2 drops.
It is also useful in the very rare event that the solenoid fails open and needs to be isolated.
- Inflator unit
- GC3R Flowstop* shutoff valve with RB70/25 locking strap
- RB20/84 Flowstop to Solenoid Hose
- AP35S low profile BMCL inlet elbow
*Please Note: as of January 2020 the GC3R features a chromed slider (shown above) rather than the original black slider
Upgrade for existing owners:
The Oxygen Inflator with GC3 (Flowstop) can be retrofitted to all existing Inspirations with BMCL. The diver can use their existing hoses if they swap around the one feeding into the counterlung so that the knurled female connection end attaches to the new inflator block outlet and the 3/8th UNF male connector attaches to the new AP35S low profile inlet elbow (included) which replaces the current counterlung inlet elbow.
NOTE: You will also need a replacement LP Port Plug to fit to the oxygen first stage to replace the First Stage to Solenoid Hose which has been removed.
Other Swivel Inflator options:
AP have designed a complete range of swivel inflators with different functions. These options can also be retro-fitted or ordered with a new unit. The options are:
Single Swivel Inflators - A single inflator block with a rotating inlet block which can swivel through 360 degrees to allow different hose routing possibilities for onboard or offboard gas. Available for both oxygen (RBV07A/35S) and diluent (RBV07/35S).
Dual Swivel Inflators - A dual inflator block with two rotating inlet ports to allow two independent gas sources - e.g. onboard and offboard - to be plugged into a single inflator block at the same time. Available for both oxygen (RBV07A/DUAL/35S) and diluent (RBV07/DUAL/35S).
Single Diluent Inflator with GC3 (Flowstop) Shutoff Valve - includes a hose from the Flowstop to the ADV inlet. See RBV07/SO/35S. It allows the ADV to be easily isolated after the initial descent if the diver prefers to control the diluent manually during the middle section of the dive.
Dual Swivel Inflators with GC3 (Flowstop) Shutoff Valve - (for either oxygen or diluent) - includes both the GC3 and the relevant hose to either the solenoid or ADV. In this model the top swivel inlet block features both an inlet and an outlet. A GC3 shutoff valve sits in-line after this outlet which allows the diver to quickly and easily isolate the solenoid (oxygen side) or ADV (diluent side).
This combines all the advantages offered by both the Dual Inflator and the Inflator with Shutoff Valve described above. See RBV07/DUAL/SO/35S (for diluent version) and the RBV07A/DUAL/SO/35S (for oxygen version).
