We set out to make a ö??standardö?ô regulator that was simple- dependable and economical. What we didnö??t expect was that in tests it would outperform other high-end regulators. Not an easy feat for a ö??standardö?ô downstream demand valve regulator. With the Alpha 9- you get effortless breathing in a compact design that is extremely tough yet easy to maintain and service. Professional performance- entry-level price. If you believe that you shouldn't have to sacrifice performance for price- the Alpha 9 is for you. The Alpha 9 is the top-performing regulator in its class- and one of the most affordably priced regulators you can buy. Designed to perform to the U.S. Navy's Class A standards at 198 feet Available with MaxFlex Hose which is a lightweight- flexible- Braided hose designed to outperform and outlive traditional rubber hoses. Best Price / Performance ratio in its class Not only is the Alpha 9 an economical buy for the diver on a budget- it is just as inexpensive to maintain. Standard replacement parts can cost as little as half of those in other regulators in its class. Patented orthodontic mouthpiece To further reduce jaw fatigue- the Alpha 9 features a patented Orthodontic Mouthpiece- designed to accommodate the natural overbite of the human jaw. Nitrox Compatibility The Alpha 9 is classified as being suitable for use with nitrox breathing gas mixtures containing up to 40% oxygen by volume without the need for special preparation- cleaning or component parts. Over-Balanced Diaphragm First Stage The CDX-5 high performance over-balanced first stage provides progressively greater intermediate pressure as depth and gas density increases. The center ö??padsö?ô that the diaphragms act against are different sizes so the working area of the outer environmental diaphragm is larger than the working area of the inner diaphragm. As depth increases- more pressure is applied to the larger surface area of the outer diaphragm than would be applied to the internal diaphragm. The result is superior gas delivery under the most extreme conditions.
