Description

Experience the benefits of Nitrox, extreme cold-water performance and customisability with the affordable Apeks Nitrox XTX50 Regulator.

The Nitrox variant of the XTX50 regulator has been laboriously oxygen-cleaned in Apeks specialised labs and fitted with an M26 EU standard connection. This allows it to be used with 100%-Oxygen Nitrox blends. Enjoy longer bottom times and fewer decompression stops.

When you’re exploring harsh underwater environments you need to be able to rely on your 1st stage. The Nitrox DST 1st stage is environmentally sealed, protecting it against icebuild-up so you never need to worry about freeflow. Similarly when you descend deeper, the water pressure around you constricts the airflow through your hoses; the DST’s overbalanced diaphragm increases the air pressure as you descend ensuring breathing is always relaxed and easy.

To allow for streamlined routing the DST 1st stage features a swivel head, 2 high pressure ports and 4 low pressure ports.

The NXT50 is designed to give you full control over your dive experience. The interchangeable exhaust allows you to choose between a compact exhaust for convenience or a larger exhaust for superior bubble dispersion. The venturi control and Opening Effort dial let you configure your regulator to suit your preference or environment for full control of your breathing feel. Pneumatically balanced, Nitrox XTX50 2nd stage delivers consistent and effortless breathing throughout your dive, even when your tanks are running low on pressure.

In Europe the Apex Nitrox Regulators are sold with an M26 connection.

Do not attempt to use any Nitrox Product until you have obtained training in nitrox use with mixtures containing over 21% 02 from a nationally recognised training agency.

Features

Nitrox equipment will be supplied in Europe in accordance with the EN 144-3 and the EN13949 which states that equipment sold in CEE (European Community) countries over 21% and up to 100% will be manufactured with the special M26 fitting.

Four medium-pressure ports all mounted on a rotating turret. This results in optimal hose routing while eliminating sharp bends in the hose.

Features an innovative Diver Changeable Exhaust system (DCE). This system gives the diver the ability to change from a small exhaust tee to a large exhaust tee. This gives the user a choice, wider exhaust tee for minimal bubble interference (essential for underwater photography) and narrow exhaust tee for a smaller compact comfortable regulator. The regulator is supplied with both sets of exhaust tees.

Optional 5th port is available for sidemount or twin cylinder set ups.

Can be converted from a right-handed hose configuration to a left-handed one. The process of changing the regulator to a left-handed configuration is both quick and simple. However this procedure must ONLY be performed by an APEKS Authorised Service Technician.

Available in yoke or DIN configuration.

Braided flexi-hoses are now standard on all models. These hoses are lighter weight, more flexible and more durable.

Suitable for coldwater use (below 10 C / 50 F).

Compatible with EAN40 out of the box.

First Stage:

Uses the DST 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.
2 HP ports and 4 MP ports on a rotating turret are angled for optimum hose routing
An environmental dry system keeps water out of the main spring chamber thus preventing ice buildup and keeping silt and contamination out.
Second Stage

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.
