Apeks MTX-R Sidemount Set
The Apeks MTX-R Sidemount Set is a super tough, rugged, high performance, go anywhere sidemount regulator configuration designed to meet the rigours of cold water and extreme sidemount diving.
The MTX-R is highly reliable and also very easy to service out in the field which makes it an ideal choice for the expedition and exploration diver.
TheMTX-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 First stages
Over balanced for superior performance.
Compact environmentally sealed diaphragm system completely eliminating the maintenance issues associated with silicone, oil or grease filling.
Recommended for frequent use in cold or contaminated water.
Environmental over-moulded endcap & diaphragm that helps prevent ice build-up that can cause first stage free flow in extreme circumstances. Also protects the first stage from impact damage.
Double swivel hose for greater freedom of movement and comfort.
5 x 3/8” UNF medium pressure ports & 2 x 7/16” UNF high-pressure ports.
The 5th 3/8” UNF medium pressure port includes a protective bumper when not in use.
Forged first stage body with heat exchanging ribs for maximum thermal performance.
Angled HP ports for optimal hose routing and fitting transmitters.
Forged rotating turret with medium pressure ports in a parallel direction for improved hose orientation.
Tested for Octopus use – EN250A to 60 meters cold water.
The MTX-R Second stages
Simple to use with no dive controls, pre-settable cracking effort or venturi control by an Apeks approved qualified technician.
High performance pneumatically balanced lever operated poppet valve.
Large diver friendly self-flushing controllable purge button.
Front cover with over-moulded elastomer bumpers incorporates a formed chrome plated brass plate improving the durability of the demand valve.
Large protective elastomer bumpers on the side and on the top to protect the demand valve from impacts and scratches in the most vulnerable places.
The reversible second stage for either a left or right-hand gas supply.
Hard-wearing, satin chrome.
All gas contact moulded parts are produced using an active protection additive that kills MRSA, protects against E-Coli, bacteria and fungi, and is also very effective against viruses, mold, yeast and algae.
Large heat exchanger fitted to help reduce second stage freezing.
