regulator is one of your most important pieces of gear. No matter what
kind of diving you do, you can do it better with Zeagle. Our regulators
are rated at the top in objective evaluations of breathing performance,
but they also have unmatched reliability and durability. Our regulators
exceed the highest standards, including the DIN EN 250 standard and the
U.S. Navy Group A for working at depth. Our regulators are US made,
built under strict controls for quality in our own factory, using state
of the art equipment and procedures.
Diving is full of
challenges. Sand, salt, high and low temperatures, rough treatment, and
lack of maintenance can all cause problems with regulators. Piston
designs can lose performance as lubrication is lost from moving O-ring
Our regulators are designed to maintain top performance
without a lot of maintenance. Our environmentally sealed diaphragm first
stages completely exclude water borne contaminants. Our first stage
valve design minimizes wear and maximizes longevity. Exposed parts are
easy to clean. Materials are carefully chosen to provide the greatest
durability. Almost all O-rings are static- no metal is moving against
them. These and thousands of other design details are linked with
outstanding quality control and testing at the our factory to provide
you with the most reliable regulator possible.
regulator’s performance is gauged by its ability to deliver air easily
under the most demanding conditions of cold water, depth, or a high
breathing rate. You can’t evaluate a regulator’s performance at the
surface or in ordinary diving. A regulator can breathe great in the
divestore or in easy diving, yet perform poorly under demanding
conditions of depth, stress, or cold. That’s why many public and private
agencies have conducted independent, objective evaluations of regulator
performance. Zeagle regulators are among the select group that exceed
the very highest standards set by these agencies, including the US Navy
Group A requirements for work of breathing at depth. In fact, our new
regulators have demonstrated- in independent testing- some of the best
performance figures ever seen. But that’s only part of the story…
used in water temperatures below 50° F (10° C) do run the risk of ice
formation in the first stage due to the cooling caused by the rapid
expansion of air from the tank. This risk increases as breathing rate
increases. To prevent freezing from occurring, it is necessary to
exclude water from the first stage mechanism. Many of the methods that
have been used to do this, such as packing grease around the piston in
piston designs, various air bleeds, and add on devices, are messy,
subject to contamination, or unreliable. We use a simple "dry sealed"
design that requires absolutely no attention from the user.
if you don't dive in cold water, our environmental seal helps to keep
your first stage functioning at peak performance by keeping sand, salt,
and other contaminants out of the internal mechanism.
NOTE: Special training and procedures are necessary whenever diving in cold water environments.
