The Triton Rebreather
The TRITON is a mechanical closed circuit rebreather. Unlike other rebreathers,
The TRITON is chest mount; this allows to be adaptable.
The rebreather consists of a Kevlar bag, protecting the conter-lungs and the 2.1kg of sodalime scubber*.
The connections developed by M3S on a clip system basis. This enables easy and safe assembly; so much so that the connection will only fit together correctly, this makes it almost impossible to invert connectors (double security system).
The Breathing hoses are in blue transparent silicone with an antibacterial treatment. The mouthpiece ( DSV) was designed to be light in the mouth and easy to handle. All the plastic parts are machined in POM-C, and the 1.5l oxygen cylinder is fixed under the bag.
The three oxygens cells allow for the analysis of the inhaled gas. They are located in a removable chamber that clip on the inhale counter-lung.
The PPO2 display also utilizing a HUD is set as standard, optionally computer from Shearwater can be integrated.
With its 12.2kg ready to dive ** The TRITON is the lightest rebreather.
Or 7kg ready to travel *** makes the TRITON the preferred rebreather for rebreather travelers.
My Thoughts on the Triton Rebreather
After so many diving trips and excursions, I wondered if there was a small, handy rebreather. While in search of it, I came across the Triton, which I ordered and tested immediately. The Triton is compact and easy to handle for an MCCR, and due to its lightweight, it is an excellent travel companion.
The advantages are easy to see. The Triton is a full-fledged rebreather, unlike any others. Breathing the Triton is very easy; construction is straightforward, and it is quick to operate. Another big plus is that any harness or jacket is universally compatible with the Triton. It is excellent for travel, but as a front rebreather, it is also ideal as a backup.
In addition to the standard monitor and HUD, the Triton can be operated with both a Shearwater Petrel and a Shearwater Nerd 2. This feature means that decompression dives are possible - also ideally suited for technical diving.
