|Apeks MTX-R Stage 3 DIN|
The APEKS MXT-R Regulator has been designed to meet the rigorous cold water regulator performance tests of the USA Navy's Experimental Diving Unit. This test is far more demanding than European standard EN250 and requires the regulator to operate at a constant rapid breathing rate of 62.5 litres per minute, at a depth of 60 meters, for 30 minutes in sea water at a bone chilling temperature of just (-1.7 ± 0.6°C). And most importantly the regulator will not free flow at any time during the test.The most striking feature of the MXT-R is the use of heat exchanging fins on both the first and second stages. It has a robust feel about it and it has most of the features of the features you would find on all high end regulators with one exception. The MXT-R doesn't have any adjustable venture or breathing resistance controls? While this might seem to be an oversight it is in fact a deliberate design feature as the MXT-R has been designed to maintain its own optimised settings throughout the dive, whatever the conditions.While the MXT-R has been designed for extreme cold water it is perfectly suitable for warm water diving. Its rugged construction makes it the perfect regulator for any diving expedition, from the Maldives to under the ice in the Artic.
