The FDX10 offers a Balanced Diaphragm and is made of Forged Chromed Marine Brass. The Balanced Diaphragm, First Stage Regulator is inherently Environmentally Sealed. The benefit of this type of First Stage design is that none of the Delicate Internal Parts are Exposed-to-Contaminants such as Salt, Sand, Chlorine or Pool Acids. These Environmental Contaminants can cause Corrosion and Mineral Deposits to form on the Internal Mechanism Deteriorating Regulator Performance. A Diaphragm First Stage Regulator requires Less-Maintenance then Regulators that allow the Contaminates to enter the Internal Mechanism.
The FDX10 features DVT (Dry Valve Technology). DVT takes keeping the Internal Components Clean of Contaminates to the Next-Level. DVT is an Innovative Design that keeps Moisture and Contaminants Out-of-the-First Stage, even if you forget to put the Dust Cap-On. Have you ever wonder why they call it a "dust cap" and not a Water Cap. DVT eliminates the possibility of Moisture entering the First Stage with a simple, yet ingenious design. No-Hassle, No-Worries. What about performance? DVT doesn't impact first stage performance even at 198' (60 meters) with just 200 psi (14 bars) in your tank. The result is an end to flooded regulators! Oceanic's exclusive DVT is designed to automatically eliminate moisture intrusion and contaminants from entering your breathing system. This means Internal Components Remain Corrosion and Bacteria Free. Amazing, Simple, Patented, and by the way, DVT is only available on Oceanic Regulators.
