These 56 cm (22 inch) Miflex XT-Tech Low Pressure (LP) BCD / Inflator / Jacket hoses are suitable for most ranges of Inflator, Dry-suit, BCD's, Wings and Jackets where a standard quick release coupler is utilised.
The XT-Tech series of scuba diving medium pressure flexible Inflator hoses has been developed with the main purpose to offer technical divers additional safety with Kevlar reinforcement in the inner braiding, combined with a smooth outer PU layer.
This new inflator hose configuration from Miflex, as it is not positively bouyant, is particularly appreciated because of less abrasion around the neck, allowing the hose to stay in place.
The Miflex XT-Tech 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.
Inflator Hose Fittings
Miflex XT-Tech low pressure Inflator hoses are supplied fitted with a standard Quick Disconnect Seatec style female side-lock coupler fitting, with an internal Schrader type valve, that accepts the standard BC inflator male QD post. This is the most common design of inflator coupling used in scuba diving. At the other end is a 3/8" UNF male thread to connect the hose to a low pressure port on the 1st stage regulator.
This inflator hose fitting is suitable for the majority of BCD and drysuit applications, but there are a range of fittings that require a different Quick Disconnect fitting. These we accommodate in our range with the use of LP adaptors that can be fitted to our regulator hoses (to convert them to an inflator hose).
