Apeks XTX 40 Regulator Stage 3 Set

Apeks XTX 40 Regulator Stage 3 Set

*Stage 3 sets come with 1st stage, 2nd stage and octo*

 

Although the XTX40 is a mid-range Apeks regulator, it is still classed as a high performance regulator in independent reviews. The XTX40 comes with all the features of Apeks's highly successful XTX50 with the exception of diver adjustable breathing resistance control and also uses a different first stage. The DS4 first stage lacks the rotating turret found on the XTX50 first stage and offers one HP port. This compact first stage is a time-proven workhorse that has been embraced by the technical community around the world.

This high-performance regulator boasts an over-balanced first stage coupled with a pneumatically balanced second stage.  Compatible with EAN40 out of the box.

 

The smooth, quiet breathe is sure to enhance your diving enjoyment.

 

Suitable for coldwater use thanks to its first stage environmental dry seal and second stage heat exchanger.

 

First Stage:

  • Uses the DS4 first stage
  • Unique over-balanced, diaphragm design - as the diver descends, the over-balancing feature allows the medium pressure gas in the hose to increase at a rate faster than ambient. This results in superior performance at depth.
  • 1 HP port and 4 MP ports are available.
  • An environmental dry system keeps water out of the main spring chamber thus preventing ice buildup and keeping silt and contamination out.
  • Available in DIN and yoke.

 

Second Stage and Octo

  • Pneumatically-balanced second stage results in smooth, easy breathing.
  • The XTX purge buttons are 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 centre for the full effect of the purge, i.e. when regulator clearing etc.
  • 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.
  • Easy-to-grip opening effort control knob keeps the diver in control.
  • The second stage is manufactured with active protection against infection as all molded parts are produced with an additive that kills 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.
  • The Comfo-bite™ mouthpiece virtually eliminates jaw-fatigue.
  • 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.
