Features of the Scuba Diver Regulator

16

Breathing underwater should be simple. The scuba regulator is the device that makes breathing deep in the water pretty simple. It is an invention that delivers air from the gas tank to you according to your instructions.  The scuba diving regulator links pieces such as scuba tank to the CBD, SPG, alternate air source and you. Since you will forget about the diver once underwater, you need to have a reliable scuba regulator.

There are features that can help you get the right scuba regulators. Some are discussed here.  The first stage of the device is attached t the scuba tank valve. Its role is to reduce tank air pressures to intermediate pressures and direct it to several hoses.  The second stage is the mouthpiece.  This one is referred to as the demand valve because it gives you air as you demand it. It ensures that you breathe comfortably.  The alternate air source is a spare mouthpiece that can assist you to share air with another diver if need be.  There are some devices on which it is built into the inflator on your BCD.

The buoyancy control device or the BCD is connected to the first stage by a low.-pressure hose. In case you are dressed in a dry suit, another inflator hose will be connected to it.  The submersible pressure gauge or SPG is connected to a high pressures port on the first stage to measure how much air pressures is remaining in the tank.

There are some features that are optional and desirable. The regulators that connect to cylinder valves with a Din or yoke system are good. Some adapters are used to make DIN regulators compatible with the yoke valve.  The environmental seal is useful in keeping the internal components from freezing in cold temperatures and keeping salt, sediments and other particles from entering the first stage.

Some regulators can use enriched air while some manufacturers require that the scuba regulator uses gasses above 22 percent of oxygen.  It is easy to fine tune breathing when you have a regulator with adjustable second stages.  A pre-dive switch makes the less stage temporality less sensitive for a few types. The under-the-arm hose option is available for some types of regulators.  There are models with different mouthpieces, exhaust tees and hose options.

Making a choice will depend on your preferences. Your budget is critical in the model of scuba regulator you opt. Visit this website to learn more about scuba regulators.
