Apollo Bio Filter Replacement Moisture Wick/Pad
The Moisture Wick/Pad is constructed of high-density foam. The dry wick is dampened by user prior to installation. Once installed the wick surrounds a flow tube that is the same diameter as the interior of your hose. The tube has small openings on the sides to create a vacuum when air passes through. Each breath draws a little moisture from the wick and adds it to the air stream to increase humidity.
The quickest method to dampen for first use of the day is to drop the Moisture Wick/Pad into a cup of distilled or plain bottled water. Once wet, it will slide onto the flow tube and be quickly replenished after each dive without removal from system.
The Moisture Wick/Pad and tube sit inside a housing that is hand-tight. You add moisture to the wick after use to ensure optimal humidity level during each dive. at the end of a day's diving simply slide the wick off and allow it to air dry completely before storage in travel case.
For scuba diving it is granted that an ample supply air comes first, but no less crucial is the quality of air. Moisturized air is essential to pulmonary respiration and comfortable, safer diving. Apollo's moisture system eliminates the problems associated with dry tank air. It also filters out trace particles of dust, rust, and odor with the Charcoal Filters. On land our nasal system filters out many impurities before air enters the body. When air is compressed into a tank, small amounts become liquefied and settle in the cylinder. Salt, water, rust, silicon residue, and aluminum oxide can form inside the tank along with oil and carbon dust. This is due in part to poor compressor maintenance. A tank's design does not allow these contaminants to be released until the cylinder is cleaned and serviced. The build-up eventually leaves a residue in the tank. It is very likely that the air coming from a tank will contain odors and impurities associated with these types of contaminants. Using the optional Charcoal Filter will help remove micro-particulates from the air supply.
