The Apeks MTX-R Regulator is based on the MTX, a regulator that was developed in accordance with the United States Navy Experimental Dive Unit extreme cold water test. Innovations in design mean that the MTX-R regulator performs in almost freezing water, something that very few other regulators on the consumer market can boast.

The military has been using Apeks regulators for over 20 years and now Apeks have put that military expertise into a brand new military specification regulator, exclusively for the consumer market. The “M” in MTX stands for Military and the “R” for recreational version and the new MTX-R is based on the MTX, a regulator that was developed in accordance with the United States Navy Experimental Dive Unit extreme cold water test.

Innovations in design mean that the MTX-R regulator performs in almost freezing water at a depth of over 60 metres, something that very few other regulators on the consumer market can boast. Tested for octopus use to 60m in cold water, this regulator set from Apeks is truly unique. The MTX-R is not just an extremely reliable regulator but also very easy to service “ in the field”.

Apeks MTX-R Regulator Set includes:
1 x Apeks MTX-R Second Stage
1 x Apeks MTX-R First Stage
1 x Apeks MTX-R Octopus
1 x Apeks Flexi Octopus Hose, yellow
1 x Apeks Flexi Regulator Hose, black
 

Apeks MTX-R Second Stage

The reversible (right and left hand) second stage of the MTX-R has a redesigned and enlarged, patented, heat exchanger which surrounds the valve mechanism, dissipating the cold caused by gas expansion.

Metal has also been incorporated into the front cover. Large protective elastometer bumpers on the sides and top protect the 2nd stage, which comes with a comfo-bite mouthpiece. 
In addition to its extreme cold water ability, the regulator is rugged, strong and designed to withstand the knocks and bumps that come with life on an expedition.


  • Simple to use Second Stage with no dive adjustment controls and a reduced chance of free flow.
  • Reversible (left or right hand)
  • Patented heat exchanger surrounds the valve mechanism, dissipating the cold caused by gas expansion while drawing in the warmth of the ambient water.
  • Comes with comfort-bite mouthpiece

“In short, it looks the business, performs like a champ, and doesn’t break the bank. What more could you want from a top-level regulator?” (Mark Evans, Scubalab Test Extra, Sport Diver magazine, January 2017)

Apeks MTX-R First Stage

Apeks MTX-R 1st stageLeading features of the first stage include a world-first over-moulded first-stage end cap to the sealed (environmental) diaphragm helping prevent ice buildup that could cause first stage free flow in extreme circumstances.

The forged first stage body gives maximum thermal performance while a ribbed diaphragm clamp on the first stage further ensures improved heat exchange in cold water conditions.

  • A first of its kind, over-moulded first-stage end cap and environmental diaphragm to prevent ice build-up that could cause a free flow in extreme circumstances.
  • Forged 1st stage body for maximum thermal performance.
  • Ribbed diaphragm clamp on 1st stage to ensure improved heat exchange in cold water conditions.
  • Angled (2) HP ports allow for optimal hose routing and transmitter fitting.
  • 5 intermediate pressure ports (with fifth covered with protective white number while not in use)
  • Parallel turret ports allow for improved hose orientation.
  • Superb protection from impact damage

“In use, the MTX-R provides a sublime breath, inhalation is effortless and silky smooth, regardless of orientation” (Mark Evans, Scubalab Test Extra, Sport Diver magazine, January 2017).

Add optional console:

You can add an optional console including pressure gauge and high pressure hose to your Apeks regulator set. The most popular console is the 1 gauge SPG. The 2 console version of this includes SPG, HP hose and analogue depth gauge with maximum depth marker. The 3 console version has both these and a compass on the back blending three units together in one console. Details of these are listed underneath.

Apeks Consoles

Apeks SPG + HP Hose

The Apeks SPG dial face is designed with clarity in mind by being uncluttered, with large black figures on a luminous background giving a long phosphorescent effect. This makes viewing as easy as possible, even in poor visibility conditions. Comes with rubber protective housing and attached hose. Hose is 30 inches from 1st stage to housing, appx. 32 inches to the SPG link within the housing.
    •    The gauge case is made from nickel plated brass
    •    The dial window is made of highly shock resistant material (anti-splinter polycarbonate)
    •    A specially designed housing protects the gauge and HP hose fitting from accidental damage
    •    A large loop area designed into the housing allows for easy attachment.
    •    There is an over-pressure capsule fitted in the back of the module to prevent the screen from exploding in the unlikely event of the internal mechanism failing.

Apeks 2 Console + HP Hose

All of the above PLUS:
    •    Dials have a long phosphorescent effect for better reading in poor visibility conditions
    •    There are 2 attachment areas integrated into the design for position flexibility
    •    This may be a compact design but the displays are vivid and clear - perfect for diving. For example, the depth gauge spreads the first half of the scale and in total shows a range down to 7m (230’)
    •    Depth gauge has resettable max depth indicator

Apeks 3 Console + HP Hose
All of the above PLUS:
    •    Compass at back of console
    •    The compass ratchet bezel is robust and can be rotated with ease even with thick neoprene gloves
