Apeks MTX-RC Single Cylinder Long Hose Set


The MTX-RC Single Cylinder Long Hose set is designed for the diver that prefers a long hose configuration on a single cylinder. It is also the perfect set-up for the recreational diver looking to transition into twinset diving in the future, as the addition of another first stage creates a twinset regulator configuration.

Combining rugged, military grade engineering with the super-smooth breathing experience that Apeks regulators are renowned for, the MTX-RC single cylinder set dives your way.

Featuring the same freeze-resistant technology enjoyed by the whole MTX-R range, the MTX-RC resists freeflows in even the coldest temperatures, while offering the user the additional flexibility to dial it out for a comfortable breathe in less extreme environments.

All this is achieved using an innovative first stage design that protects the regulator from freezing and a full set of user controls on the second stage to adjust the breathing performance based on the diver’s individual needs. The package includes 2 x MTX-RC primary second stages, 1 x MTX-RC first stage, 1x 2.1m hose, 1x 49cm hose (both double swivel hoses), a HP hose and a TEK SPG.

First Stage

• Break through, innovative over-moulded first-stage endcap & environmental diaphragm helps prevent ice build-up that can cause first stage free flow in extreme circumstances. Also protects the first stage from impact damage.

• Unique over-balanced diaphragm design – as the diver descends, the overbalancing feature allows the medium pressure gas in the hose to increase at a faster rate than ambient. This results in superior performance at depth.

• Compact environmentally dry sealed diaphragm system completely eliminating the maintenance issues associated with silicone, oil or grease filling.

• Easy to grip DIN hand-wheel or over-moulded yoke hand-wheel, only requires one hand to release.

• DIN, Yoke and M26 Thread available, 300bar, 232bar and M26 300bar (O2) respectively.

• 5 x 3/8” UNF (Unified National Fine) medium pressure ports

• 2 x 7/16” UNF high pressure ports.

• The 5th 3/8” UNF medium pressure port includes a protective bumper when not in use.

• Forged first stage body with heat exchanging ribs for maximum thermal performance.

• Angled HP ports for optimal hose routing and fitting of transmitters.

• Forged rotating turret with medium pressure ports in a parallel direction for improved hose orientation.

• Ribbed diaphragm clamp for improved heat exchange in cold water conditions.

• Double swivel hose for greater freedom of movement and comfort.

• Tested for Octopus use - EN250A to 60 meters cold water.

• Nitrox/Oxygen compatible – Up to 40% O2 outside the EU (European Union), within the EU anything above 21% O2 must use an M26 Connection.

Second Stage

• High performance pneumatically balanced lever operated poppet valve.

• Ergonomic and simple to use venturi lever.

• Oversize breathing effort adjuster makes adjustment easy in cold water whilst wearing gloves.

• Large, diver friendly self-flushing controllable purge button.

• Front cover with over-moulded elastomer incorporates a formed chrome plated brass plate improving durability of the second stage.

• Large protective elastomer bumpers on the side and on the top to protect the second stage from impacts and scratches in the most vulnerable places.

• Reversible second stage for either a left or right hand gas supply configuration.

• 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.

• Features an innovative Diver Changeable Exhaust system (DCE). The system gives the diver the ability to change from a small exhaust tee to a large exhaust tee. The regulator is supplied with both sets of exhaust tees.

• Comfo-bite mouthpiece

• Flexible nylon braided hose has better cold water performance than traditional rubber hose.

• Simple service kits

• Easy to service.
