BOV Shrimp a Bail-out Valve with a 2nd stage regulator incorporated into the mouthpiece
with the ability of supplying the diver with open circuit breathing gas when needed.
The BOV Shrimp is a standard part of the XCCR loop.
The CC/OC valve allows to easily and fast switch between the close circuit (the CC mode)
and the open circuit (OC mode) by one hand. It is operated by rotating the knob on the
front of the BOV.
When the BOV is switched to the CC mode – the breathing loop is open via the
mouthpiece and allows the diver to breathe on the rebreather closed circuit.
When the BOV is switched to the OC mode – the breathing loop is closed and allows the
diver to breathe on open circuit via the 2nd stage regulator. In this position no water can
enter the breathing loop even when the BOV is out of the diver’s mouth and submerged.
