Description

Four medium-pressure ports all mounted on a rotating turret. This results in optimal hose routing while eliminating sharp bends in the hose. Features an innovative Diver Changeable Exhaust system (DCE). This system gives the diver the ability to change from a small exhaust tee to a large exhaust tee. This gives the user a choice, wider exhaust tee for minimal bubble interference (essential for underwater photography) and narrow exhaust tee for a smaller compact comfortable regulator. The regulator is supplied with both sets of exhaust tees.

5th port is pre-installed for sidemount or twin cylinder set ups. The Apeks Sidemount Single is available only in DIN configuration. Braided flexi-hoses are now standard on all models. These hoses are lighter weight, more flexible and more durable.

Suitable for coldwater use (below 10 C / 50 F). Compatible with EAN40 out of the box.

First Stage

  • Uses the DST first stage
  • Unique over-balanced, diaphragm design – as the diver descends, the over-balancing feature allows the medium pressure gas in the hose to increase at a rate faster than ambient. This results in superior performance at depth.
  • 2 HP ports and 4 MP ports on a rotating turret are angled for optimum hose routing
  • An environmental dry system keeps water out of the main spring chamber thus preventing ice buildup and keeping silt and contamination out.

Second Stage

  • Pneumatically-balanced second stage results in smooth, easy breathing.
  • The XTX purge buttons are large and easy to operate. A 2-stage progressive purge is used – press the purge on the side for a lower flow rate, useful where more control is required such as filling lift bags etc, then press in the centre for the full effect of the purge, i.e. when regulator clearing etc.
  • The large venturi lever has a soft touch rubber grip, which makes it easier to locate and use. The lever reduces the amount of grit ingress and therefore resists any possible friction giving a smooth operation.
  • Easy-to-grip opening effort control knob keeps the diver in control.
  • The second stage is manufactured with active protection against infection as all molded parts are produced with an additive that kills MRSA, protects against E-Coli, bacteria and fungi, and is also very effective against viruses, mould, yeast and algae.
  • A silicone exhaust valve improves the breathing performance of the regulator.
  • The Comfo-bite™ mouthpiece virtually eliminates jaw-fatigue.
  • A heat exchanger (patented) which surrounds the valve mechanism, dissipates the cold caused by gas expansion while drawing in the warmth of the ambient water.

90 Degree Swivel Adapter, LP

The 90 Degree Angled Adapter attaches between the regulator second stage and its low pressure hose routing the hose down the diver’s chest and/or under the arm, which increases comfort and streamlining. This low-profile adapter is not an omni-directional swivel and so it maintains its angle and will not allow the regulator to flop around. Sidemount divers use the Right Angle Adapter to route their hoses down their chest to the bottles eliminating the need to route the hose around the neck.

  • Attaches between the regulator second stage and its low pressure hose
  • Increases comfort and hose streamlining
  • Helps reduce jaw fatigue
  • Fits standard LP Regulator hoses
  • 9/16-Inch M x 9/16-Inch F

9 Inch Inflator Rubber Hose

  • Traditional rubber with chromed brass fittings
  • Length is measured from end to end of hose
  • 3/8-inch male to 1st stage and QD female to inflator
  • All hoses are Nitrox Ready

6 Inch HP Rubber Hose with Compact Gauge

  • Traditional rubber with chromed brass fittings
  • Length is measured from end to end of hose
  • 7/16-inch male to 1st stage – 7/16-inch female to SPG
  • All hoses are Nitrox Ready

The compact thin submersible pressure gauge features a nickel plated brass housing and a coiled Bourdon tube mechanism. The luminescent dial glows-in-the-dark, making it easier to read in low light situations. The SPG has an impact resistant polycarbonate plastic face cover. Our naked SPGs are suitable for oxygen service and include the spool, with two oxygen compatible o-rings, to mate the HP hose swivel to the gauge. Available in BAR only.
