Related Risks

We have discovered a new risk to divers which is the vapors coming off the
compressor lube oils. Normally the charcoal filters should adsorb the
vapors but the fill station owners often run the filters past their
expiry dates and the hydrocarbon vapors enter the diver’s tanks. I
suspect this type of contamination is far more common than CO.
