Apocalypse Type IV Backmounted Sports CCR

A CE Certified OEM rebreather, that can be dived straight from the box in pure O2 mode or fitted with an approved PPO2 monitor or PPO2 controller for the fullest range of sports diving, with unparalleled performance - the lowest work of breathing of any rebreather.

Training is included in the price: a 2-3 day cross-over course with any of our instructors!

The depth limit for all pure oxygen rebreathers from any manufacturer is 6msw (20ft), and duration per dive of 45 minutes.  For deeper or longer dives, the iCCR version of the Apocalypse is required or an OEM PPO2 monitor or controller to provide depth limits of 100m and durations of 2 hours 45 minutes under CE conditions, or over 5 hours under warm water diving conditions.

Apocalypse: the word means "unveil" or "reveal" in Latin, and this is a tool to explore and reveal the underwater world like none before it!    

Developed out of the 200 man-year Open Revolution ™ rebreather safety initiative led by Deep Life Ltd, the Apocalypse Type IV O2-CCR is believed to be the safest SCUBA rebreather that can be engineered today for sports divers.

  • Work of breathing simply not noticeable: like walking in the park
  • One-touch Bail out Valve fitted as standard
  • Quick fit EAC scrubber cartridges, the safest scrubber technology on the planet
  • Water dumps allow full loop recovery even if flooded
  • Passive oxygen addition minimises risks of the diver forgetting to flush the loop
  • Fast preparation:  loop rinse and scrubber replacement takes under 3 minutes!
  • Rugged with low maintenance
  • Clean front and shoulders: internal back-mounted counterlungs
  • Profile above diver of just 170.5mm, less than a single 10 litre cylinder
  • Light: as low as 17kg ready to dive. 

Full compliance with all applicable safety standards, with open publication of the safety documentation (on www.deeplife.co.uk/or.php), is a cornerstone of the design: the formal verification, test results, failure analysis, performance measurements and compliance matrices are audited and published – an openness that is truly revolutionary in rebreather safety.
