Apeks MTX-R Regulator Set
The Apeks MTX-R Regulator Set is one of our most popular regulator bundles. This is a super tough and super cold water regulator taken from Apeks' military range of equipment. Inspired by the Apeks Military's division and was originally developed for the United States Navy Experimental Dive Unit.
The brief was to design and build an extreme cold water regulator that was tested in the toughest conditions. This regulator is robust, durable, and will take everything that you can throw at it. The metal parts improve the cold water performance and overall strength of the regulator.

Apeks MTX-R First Stage Specifications
The 1st stage is a 5-port swivel turret covered in Heat Exchangers with a Satin Chrome Coating that improves cold-water performance and strength. The Swivel Turret lets your hoses route more naturally by allowing them to pivot so your hoses don't kink. The 5th Port adds further flexibility so you can mount hoses straight out one end of the 1st stage, great for DIR twin-set divers and sidemount divers. The Angled High-Pressure Ports are for a more comfortable routing down on singles and twin cylinders so your HP hose doesn't have to bend around the shape of your cylinders.
MTX-R Large Heat Exchangers
It has metal parts that allow the regulator to transfer heat into the regulator through the huge amount of large heat exchangers (also known as heat fins) on the body. The heat exchangers improve cold-water performance and also the overall strength of the regulator. The satin chrome coating was selected for the first stage to further improve cold-water performance and durability.
MTX-R & Swivel Turret
The swivel turret on the 1st stage of the regulator allows you to effectively route your regulator hoses. This feature means a more natural hose routing, reducing the likelihood of your hoses kinking due to the pivot of the turret.
MTX-R Angled High Pressure Ports
The angled high-pressure ports offer a more appropriate hose routing for both your wireless transmitter or your SPG. On singles, it points the hose towards your hip and on twinsets, your HP hose no longer bends on the tank neck.
The first stage comes in either a DIN or Yoke (A-Clamp) model. However, so far we have only sold the DIN version as this is by far the most popular version of this cold water regulator.
Apeks MTX-R Second Stage Specifications
The MTX-R has a robust metal front cover and a crenelated rubber edge for easy access to internal parts. The 2nd Stage has large heat exchanger fins from the inlet warms the valve and gas coming into the 2nd stage, improving cold-water performance by reducing the risk of ice build-up. Redesigned from the military the MTX-R has a strong Industrial feel to it, made for strength, reliability, and performance.
