MTX-R - Oxygen Regulator



The new MTX-R is based on the MTX, a regulator that was developed in accordance with the United States Navy Experimental Dive Unit extreme cold water test. Innovations in design mean that the MTX-R regulator performs in almost freezing water at a depth of over 60 metres, something that very few other regulators on the consumer market can boast.

With an innovative first stage design that helps to prevent ice build up around the diaphragm, the MTX-R is reliable, rugged and expedition ready

Apeks Nitrox regulators are suitable for use with up to 100% O2 and are colour-coded for easy identification.

The regulators have been specially cleaned and assembled in our purpose built class 'J' (10,000) Clean Room using oxygen safe components and lubricants.

Features & Benefits

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.

  • A first of its kind, over-moulded first-stage end cap and environmental diaphragm to prevent ice build-up that could cause a free flow in extreme circumstances.
  • Forged 1st stage body gives maximum thermal performance.
  • Ribbed diaphragm clamp on the 1st stage ensures improved heat exchange in cold water conditions.
  • Angled HP ports allow for optimal hose routing and transmitter fitting.
  • Parallel turret ports allow for improved hose orientation.
  • Superb protection from impact damage on both the 1st and 2nd stage.
  • Simple to use 2nd stage with no dive adjustment controls and a reduced chance of free flow.
  • Double swivel hose for greater freedom of movement and comfort.
  • Patented heat exchanger surrounds the valve mechanism, dissipating the cold caused by gas expansion while drawing in the warmth of the ambient water.
  • Developed in accordance with the United States Navy Experimental Dive Unit extreme cold water test.
