What's in the box: 1'st and 2'nd Stage Regulators with LP Hose and Owner's Manual
Instead of requiring divers to modify their diving to fit their gear, APEKS has taken great strides in making their gear flexible enough to meet the needs of the diving community. In addition to being highly-functional and boasting of incredible performance, the XTX100 is a very stylish piece of dive equipment. First-Stage Regulators is an Over-Balanced Diaphragm Design. The Over-Balancing feature means you'll be Breathing Easy, even as the pressure around you changes as you increase or decrease your depth or as the pressure in your tank changes. This means you won't have to exert yourself in order to fill your lungs as your dive progresses. The Over-Balancing feature allows the Intermediate Pressure Gas in the hose to Increase-at-a-Rate Faster-than-Ambient. This results in Superior Performance at Depth.
Diaphragm Regulators are Inherently Environmentally Protected. The diaphragm membrane transmits the pressure changes to the internal mechanism eliminating the need for the surrounding water to enter the intricate mechanism. The benefit of this type of first stage design is that none of the internal parts are exposed to contaminants such as salt, sand, chlorine or pool acids. These environmental contaminants cause corrosion and mineral deposits to form on the internal mechanism deteriorating regulator performance. With the XTX100 there is a Secondary Environmental Diaphragm Membrane that seals off the spring chamber keeping the first stage completely sealed off from the environment adding a second layer of corrosion resistance and preventing ice buildup.
The First Stage is equipped with 4-Low-Pressure (LP) 3/8" Threaded Ports Mounted on a Rotating Turret and 2-High-Pressure (HP) 7/16" Threaded Ports. The HP Ports are Compatible with Hose-Less Computer Transmitters and all ports provide Optimum Hose Positions. The First Stage is NITROX Compatible to 40% O2 (EAN40) when new, Out-of-the-Box. The XTX100 First Stage is made from Forged Marine Grade Brass with a Satin Chrome Finish.
The XTX100 Second Stage Regulators Purge Button is 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 center for the Full-Effect of the Purge, i.e. when regulator clearing etc. The Second Stage comes with a 3/8" Threaded Braided Flexi-Hose. The Hose is lightweight, more flexible and more durable. The APEKS XTX100 Second Stage is suitable for Coldwater Use. This Pneumatically-Balanced Second Stage results in Smooth, Easy Breathing and 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. The XTX100 Second Stage also comes equipped with an Easy-to-Grip Opening Effort Control Knob keeps the Diver-in-Control of Breathing Effort.
The 2nd Stage is manufactured with Active-Protection against Infection as all Molded-Parts are produced with an Additive that Kills METHICILLIN-Resistant Staphylococcus AUREUS (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. Silicone COMFO Bite Mouthpiece Reduces Jaw Fatigue, and allows you to enjoy the Diving Experience Longer. The COMFO Bite Mouthpiece was designed by an Aqua Lung Engineer who used a Retainer for his Teeth; he incorporated the same Orthodontic design into the COMFO-Bite. The Mouthpiece allows the Diver to Completely-Loosen the Bite on the Regulator Mouthpiece and allows it to Lightly Rest in their Mouth, making this the Most-Comfortable Mouthpiece available. The COMFO-Bite is made from Durable, Soft Black Silicone for Long Life.
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 for Excellent Coldwater Performance. The APEKS XTX40 Regulator weighs 42oz (1,192g), comes with an Owner's Manual and is covered by a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
