You cannot breathe directly out of a scuba tank because of the high pressure. A regulator reduces pressure to safe a level that can be inhaled by the diver. A diving regulator has two parts: the First Stage reduces the tank pressure and connects it to the Second Stage which contains the mouthpiece for breathing
The XTX Tungsten is built upon the XTX200 platform but with a truly unique, added feature it is protected with a hard, durable PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) finish. This tough as nails finish is better than traditional chrome plating. The coating is made of high quality grades of Titanium, Zirconium and Chromium. The result is not only rich, but protects your investment from normal diving abuse.The XTX Tungsten features an innovative Diver Changeable Exhaust system (DCE). This system gives the diver the ability to change from a small exhaust tee to a large exhaust tee. This gives the user a choice, wider exhaust tee for minimal bubble interference (essential for underwater photography) and narrow exhaust tee for a smaller compact comfortable regulator. The regulator will be supplied with both sets of exhaust tees Features Nitrox Compatible to 40% Diver Adjustable Airflow Over-balanced first stage achieves superior performance by increasing your air flow the deeper you go. All components are made of Corrosion resistant machined brass with zirconium and titanium plating Designed for extreme depths and cold water Pneumatically balanced second stage Environmentally sealed first stage to prevent water entry, prevents silt sand and even ice DCE (Diver Changeable Exhaust) system - 2 exhaust-Ts with the ability to change from a compact to an ultra wide exhaust-T for better bubble dispersion Diver Adjustable venturi to prevent unwanted free-flow Compatible with EAN40 new, out of the box Includes Comfo-bite mouthpiece. eliminates jaw fatigue Available in yoke or din configuration.
