What's in the box: 1st Stage, 2nd Stage, LP Hose and Owner's Manual
Excellent performance without a high price, incorporating all the features that make Mares regulators stand out from the rest Mares Ranger 12 is a mid-size regulator with stylish design, strengthened by the ultimate technologies to provide steady, natural and effortless breathing
The first stage is a balanced diaphragm design in a chromed marine grade brass body with the Tri-Material Valve The "Tri-Material" Valve is a patented innovation, conceived and created to optimize performance, safety, and reliability over time for Mares first stages During operation, the high-pressure valve is subjected to various stresses In traditional valves, these stresses, combined with extreme usage conditions, can cause premature wear of the valve with a consequent drop in reliability, performance, and safety After careful study of the forces involved, the pressures that act on the surfaces of the valve, and the usage conditions to which it is subjected, Mares has created the new "Tri-material" valve (brass, soft polyurethane, and "heavy duty" polyurethane), found today on all Mares first stages
This innovative technical solution guarantees maximum performance, safety, and durability for Mares first stages The exclusive MARES DFC system featured minimizes the intermediate pressure drop which occurs in all regulators during the inhalation phase This pressure drop is greater when higher airflow is demanded of the regulator The DFC system substantially reduces breathing effort and inhalation resistance, especially during deep dives and under high air flow conditions
The second stage Vortex Assist Design (V A D ) system: all Mares second stages offer the unique patented VAD system The air bypass tube conveys air to the mouthpiece creating a swirling vortex with a low pressure area in the center this keeps the diaphragm down during inhalation, giving very sensitive and easy breathing at all depths All enclosed in a lightweight Techno-Polymer housing Regulator comes with a Standard 3/8" Threaded 31 5" (80 cm) LP Hose, a Comprehensive Owner's Manual and is covered by a limited lifetime warranty
