The Tungsten regulator is based on our very popular limited edition
Black Pearl regulator. With its own definite look,
it has a very different luxurious but hard-wearing PVD coating finish.
The operating design is based on the highly
successful Apeks ATX200 regulator which has proven its
ability over the last few years.
Features include the attractive, craftman finished, metallic front
cover and touch-improved purge and
ergonomic controls and handwheels.
The Tungsten is therefore a blend of a very high performance piece of
equipment with exceptional good looks and the
strength to put up with the rigours of diving. The perfect
combination for a top regulator.
The High Tec grades of Chromium, Titanium, and Zirconium give
this regulator an extremely hard, low-friction
Diamond PVD finish (Physical Vapour Deposition - a computer controlled
process that guarantees performance
and reproducibility). PVD offers extreme protection and high resistance
to wear. The Tungsten is suitable for
use with up to 40% oxygen as standard and can be cleaned suitable for 100% O2.
The XTX200 regulator can be converted from a right handed hose
configuration (as supplied from the APEKS
factory in the standard) to a left handed one. This regulator also features
a Reversible Venturi System (RVS).
Changing the regulator to a left handed configuration is both quick
and simple and can be performed
by any APEKS Authorised Service Technician.
The XTX200 regulator incorporates the new feature of the Diver Changeable
Exhaust This system gives the diver
the ability to change from a small exhaust to a large exhaust tee.
This gives the user a choice of the wider exhaust tee for minimal bubble
interference (essential for underwater photography)
and the narrow exhaust tee for a smaller compact comfortable regulator
(ideal for travel or for use as an octopus regulator).
The exhausts are made from strong, yet light-weight material, essential for
the diving environment. We also supply
different coloured mouthpieces and exhausts for regulator
individualisation which is very useful when
using multiple regulators with different mixes.
The XTX200 regulator incorporates a new front cover
manufactured using high strength plastic
which greatly improves the durabiSystem (DCE).
lity of the most vulnerable part of the demand valve and an aesthetically
pleasing chrome plated metal insert immediately
identifying this regulator as a top of the range model.
The new purge button has improved the purge itself. Due to the new
open design the purge is self
clearing and prevents debris build-up.
The new ergonomic Venturi lever of the XTX200 has been designed to
reduce the amount of grit ingress and
also incorporate an index-able, tactile / audible ratchet
Venturi lever mechanism.
A new silicone exhaust valve has been used on the XTX200
regulator improving breathing performance.
