French term or phrase: recycleur
In a tourism brochure. "l'expérience" is a dive to explore an archaeological site. This must be a specific piece of (breathing?) equipment used by divers, and, unfortunately, my diving daughter is away...

N’hésitez pas à venir tenter l’expérience et passer un moment agréable, dans une ambiance chaleureuse avec d’excellentes conditions de sécurité (Plongée air et Nitrox, ****** recycleurs ****** acceptés).

This isn't in any of my dictionaries, nor have I had any luck on google. So I'd be most grateful for any help!
