What is the Flowthrough cap for?
The Flowthrough cap is an optional accessory that can allow the SCUFA to be used in a Flowthrough mode.  The cap is installed over the optics and has inlet and outlet ports to connect with a plumbing system.  A common use of the cap is in conjunction with Sea-Bird CTD systems that can use a submersible pump to pump water through all of the probes.  Another use could be to use the cap on a ship or in the lab with an external pump.  The cap is not necessary for use.  The SCUFA has been designed as an open-optics unit, meaning it can operate successfully with high levels of ambient light without the need for a pump.
