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.

Twin Bommies (aka Twin Towers Reef) is exactly as its name would suggest, two large rock Bommies standing up from the 18-metre seabed just off Point Lonsdale outside of Port Phillip Heads in Bass Strait. The Bommies have a large community of fish life and are covered in bright soft corals and sponges. A great dive with lots of photo opportunities, not to mention the odd Port Jackson Shark, or a Southern Rock Lobster (aka Crayfish) or two.

Bass Strait Warning: Always keep an eye on sea conditions throughout any shore or boat dive in Bass Strait on Victoria's coastline. Please read the warnings on the web page diving-in-bass-strait before diving or snorkelling this site.

Divers have the opportunity to catch Southern Rock Lobster (aka Crayfish) at this dive site. Remember your catch bag, current Victorian Recreational Fishing Licence, rock lobster measure, and cray tags. Once you get back to the dive boat, or shore, make sure you clip the tail and tag your Crayfish as per Fisheries requirements. Please abide by all current fishing regulations if you intend to catch crays. See article-catching-crayfish for practical cray hunting advice from The Scuba Doctor, plus melbourne-cray-dives for a list of other crayfish dive sites near Melbourne. For tips on cooking your Crays, please see article-cooking-crayfish.

Traditional Owners — This dive site is in the traditional Country of the Wathaurong (Wadda-Warrung) people of the Kulin Nation. This truly ancient Country includes the coastline of Port Phillip, from the Werribee River in the north-east, the Bellarine Peninsula, and down to Cape Otway in the south-west. We wish to acknowledge the Wathaurong as Traditional Owners. We pay respect to their Ancestors and their Elders, past, present and emerging. We acknowledge Bunjil the Creator Spirit of this beautiful land, who travels as an eagle, and Waarn, who protects the waterways and travels as a crow, and thank them for continuing to watch over this Country today and beyond.

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.
