Miflex XT-Tech technical diving regulator hoses
The XT-Tech series of technical diving, medium pressure, flexible, regulator hoses has been developed with the main purpose to offer technical divers additional safety with Kevlar reinforcements in the inner braiding, combined with a smooth outer layer of PU.
This new technical scuba diving regulator hose configuration from Miflex, as it is not positively buoyant, is particularly appreciated because of the less abrasion around the neck, allowing the hose to stay in place.
The Miflex XT-Tech regulator hoses offer the same characteristics of a traditional rubber hose with the plus of being lighter in weight.
The Miflex XT-Tech regulator hose has a polyether based PU thermoplastic inliner with an inner Polyester and Kevlar braiding and an outer smooth layer of thermoplastic. The fittings and the sleeves are made of sea water resistant electroless nickel plated brass.
All hoses comply to the European EN250 standard.
Operating Pressure: 35 bar.
Miflex XT-Tech technical diving regulator hoses are available in a single colour option and have a limited range of lengths available at this time. (Note: no custom sizes available.)
Miflex XT-Tech regulator hoses are supplied in re-usable drybag packaging and supplied with manufacturers warranty and user information.
Choosing the Best Regulator Hose Length
On a standard GUE back gas hose setup the long regulator hose length is 210 cm (84 inch). The primary second stage regulator is attached via this long hose to a first stage that is affixed to the diver's right post (right shoulder).
Our most popular backup (Octopus) second stage regulator hose lengths are 56 cm (22 inch) or 60 cm (24 inch). The backup second stage regulator is attached via this hose to a first stage that is affixed to the diver's left post (left shoulder).
Hose length is measured in cm, from end to end of the hose, including the fittings and their threads.
Miflex XT-Tech LP regulator hoses, have a 3/8-inch UNF Male fitting at the end that screws into the first stage regulator LP port, and a 9/16-inch UNF Female fitting at the end that screws on to the second stage regulator.
