Apeks XTX50 Regulator

Apeks Christmas Offer 2023 - Apeks XTX50 Regulator FREE Gauge (-£134.01) at CHECK OUT.

The Apeks XTX50 DST (Diver Selectable Tuning) regulator is designed for divers who seek a feature-rich regulator at a moderate price. It offers a range of benefits, making it an attractive choice for discerning divers. Notable features include an innovative Diver Changeable Exhaust system (DCE), hose routing optimization, and the ability to switch between a small and large exhaust tee. Here's an overview of the key features and benefits:

Apeks XTX50 Regulator Feature

  • Hose Routing: The XTX50 DST features four medium-pressure ports mounted on a rotating turret. This design optimizes hose routing and eliminates sharp bends in the hose, ensuring a more streamlined configuration.

  • Diver Changeable Exhaust (DCE): The DCE system allows divers to switch between a small exhaust tee and a large exhaust tee. This choice provides versatility: the wider exhaust tee minimizes bubble interference, which is crucial for underwater photographers, while the narrow exhaust tee offers a more compact and comfortable regulator. The regulator comes with both sets of exhaust tees.

  • Optional 5th Port: An optional 5th port is available for sidemount or twin cylinder setups, offering flexibility in configuring your dive gear.

  • Hose Configuration: The XTX50 DST can be converted from a right-handed hose configuration to a left-handed one. However, this procedure should only be performed by an APEKS Authorized Service Technician.

  • Yoke or DIN Configuration: It is available in both yoke and DIN configurations to accommodate different cylinder setups.

  • Braided Flexi-Hoses: All models of this regulator come with braided flexi-hoses as standard. These hoses are lighter, more flexible, and durable, improving overall performance.

  • Coldwater Suitability: Designed for coldwater use, the XTX50 DST is suitable for temperatures below 10°C (50°F), making it versatile for various diving environments.

  • EAN40 Compatible: The regulator is compatible with Enriched Air Nitrox 40 (EAN40) out of the box, offering options for enriched air diving.

First Stage:

  • DST First Stage: The regulator uses the DST (Diver Selectable Tuning) first stage, offering flexibility and performance optimization for divers.

  • Over-Balanced Diaphragm Design: The over-balanced diaphragm design provides superior performance at depth by allowing the medium-pressure gas in the hose to increase at a rate faster than ambient pressure.

  • Multiple Ports: The first stage features 2 high-pressure ports and 4 medium-pressure ports mounted on a rotating turret, angled for optimum hose routing.

  • Environmental Dry System: A dry system prevents water from entering the main spring chamber, preventing ice buildup and keeping silt and contamination out.

Second Stage:

  • Pneumatically-Balanced Second Stage: The pneumatically-balanced second stage ensures smooth, easy breathing for the diver.

  • XTX Purge Buttons: The XTX purge buttons are large and easy to operate, with a 2-stage progressive purge system. This system allows divers to control the flow rate for various purposes, such as filling lift bags or regulator clearing.

  • Venturi Lever: The large venturi lever features a soft-touch rubber grip, making it easy to locate and use. This design reduces the risk of grit ingress and friction, ensuring smooth operation.

  • Easy-to-Grip Control Knob: An easy-to-grip opening effort control knob keeps the diver in control, allowing for adjustments as needed.

  • Active Protection Against Infection: The second stage is manufactured with molded parts that contain an additive capable of killing MRSA, protecting against E-Coli, bacteria, fungi, viruses, mold, yeast, and algae.

  • Silicone Exhaust Valve: A silicone exhaust valve enhances the breathing performance of the regulator.

  • Comfo-Bite™ Mouthpiece: The Comfo-Bite™ mouthpiece significantly reduces jaw fatigue, providing a more comfortable experience for divers.

  • Patented Heat Exchanger: A patented heat exchanger surrounds the valve mechanism, dissipating cold caused by gas expansion while drawing in warmth from the ambient water.
