Miflex XT-Tech technical diving Inflator hoses
The XT-Tech series of technical diving medium pressure flexible BCD / Inflator / Jacket 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 diving inflator 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 BCD / Inflator / Jacket hoses offer the same characteristics of a traditional rubber hose with the plus of being lighter in weight.
The Miflex XT-Tech BCD 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 jacket 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 BCD / Inflator / Jacket hoses are supplied in re-usable drybag packaging and supplied with manufacturers warranty and user information.
Choosing the Best Inflator Hose Length
On a standard GUE back gas hose setup the BCD/Inflator/Wing hose length is 56 cm (22 inch).
Our most popular Dry Suit Inflator hose length is 90 cm (36 inch).
Hose length is measured in cm, from end to end of the hose, including the fittings and their threads.
The typical low-pressure BC inflator hose is a 3/8-inch UNF male at the end that screws into the first stage LP port, and at the other end is the Quick Disconnect BC female slide-lock Schrader valve fitting that accepts the standard BC inflator male QD post. The Miflex XT-Tech inflator hoses use this setup, the most common design of inflator coupling used in scuba diving.
