Miflex XT-Tech Regulator Hoses

New for 2018
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.

John Scott Shipwreck History — Built in 1848

The John Scott was a two-masted wooden snow of 157 tons, built in 1848, at Hylton, near Sunderland, England, on a length of 78.7 ft (24 m), a breadth of 20.5 ft (6.25 m) and a depth of 12 ft (3.66 m).

The vessel was owned by James Hemphill and registered in Melbourne at the time of its loss.

John Scott Sinking — 14 February 1858

On its final voyage the John Scott left Adelaide on 27 January 1858 bound for Melbourne, with general cargo, plus five passengers and five crew under the command of Captain R.A. Gunn. On leaving Adelaide heavy weather and thick fog was experienced, and at about 1:30 a.m on Sunday 14 February 1858 when the vessel was in stays it suddenly struck on shore.

Initially those on board had no idea where they had come ashore, however at daylight the Captain found that they were stranded off the Bold Projection, Flaxmans Hill, just opposite McCreddins Station about 15 miles to the east of Warrnambool and west of Peterboroug.

The ship's boat was immediately launched and the five passengers safely landed on the beach nearby, followed by the remainder of the crew. They then all made their way to McCreddins Station where they were hospitably cared for. A message was immediately dispatched to notify the authorities in Warrnambool.

Eastern Maar country
Eastern Maar country

Traditional Owners — This dive site is in the traditional Country of the Eastern Maar people of south-western Victoria between the Shaw and Eumerella Rivers and from Yambuk in the south to beyond Lake Linlithgow in the north. This truly ancient Country extends as far north as Ararat and encompasses the coastal townships of Port Fairy in the west, Warrnambool, Peterborough, Port Campbell, Apollo Bay, Lorne, and Airies Inlet in the east, including the Great Ocean Road area. It also stretches 100 metres out to sea from low tide and therefore includes the iconic Twelve Apostles. "Eastern Maar" is a name adopted by the people who identify as Maar, Eastern Gunditjmara, Tjap Wurrung, Peek Whurrong, Kirrae Whurrung, Kuurn Kopan Noot and/or Yarro waetch (Tooram Tribe) amongst others. We wish to acknowledge the Eastern Maar as Traditional Owners. We pay respect to their Ancestors and their Elders, past, present and emerging.

DISCLAIMER: No claim is made by The Scuba Doctor as to the accuracy of the dive site coordinates listed here. Should anyone decide to use these GPS marks to locate and dive on a site, they do so entirely at their own risk. Always verify against other sources.

The marks come from numerous sources including commercial operators, independent dive clubs, reference works, and active divers. Some are known to be accurate, while others may not be. Some GPS marks may even have come from maps using the AGD66 datum, and thus may need be converted to the WGS84 datum. To distinguish between the possible accuracy of the dive site marks, we've tried to give each mark a source of GPS, Google Earth, or unknown.
