Description

AVAILABLE IN YOKE OR DIN

The MTX-R is based on the MTX military regulator and is a super tough, rugged, high performance, go anywhere regulator. The MTX-R has excellent cold water performance and has a greatly reduced risk of free flow. This has been achieved by improving several areas, including an innovative endcap solution that solves a long-challenged reality for cold-water divers of first stage freeze up. This regulator is designed to meet all aspects of the NEDU (Navy Experimental Dive Unit) military requirements for diving in very cold water. The MTX-R is highly reliable and also very easy to service out in the field.

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 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
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
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

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
