First off I definately wouldn't prefer a membrane system unless it was done right.. Many people
get membrane systems to try and avoid the filtering issue.. In the end its more likely a fire would
start using a mamnrane system (there is a live abord operator who has gad several fires)
I'd prefer a PP system done right.. O2 handled properly is no big deal.. The boat should have
O2 anyway for diving emergencies.

Propbably the easiest is a constant blending system using an oiless RIKS compressor..
These units can be set up for water cooling further enhancing safety. This would
put the least danger with customer equipment while maintaing oxygen compatibilty for those who
make sure on hydrocarbon free gas and don't want it ruined by a dirty fill..
These compressors can do up to about 50% on the fly...
