Apeks Swivel Inflation Valve - EU standard connection / 360 rotatable (AP0703)
Apeks not only manufactures first-class regulators, the Apeks valves are in a class of their own.
Apeks valves are used in many dry suits.
Solid low profile inlet valve with large operating knob
The Apeks inflation valve is robust and reliable, featuring an extra-large recessed push-button allowing for easy operation with cold hands or thick gloves. The smooth back plate gives protection from uncomfortable pressure loads on the chest and prevents cold air blasts through underclothing. The valve also sits low on the chest making it less prone to snagging in BCD fixtures.
Rotation is a key feature of this valve, meeting the diver's personal hose configuration. The valve is designed to rotate 360 degrees for flexibility and to assist suit manufacturers in fitting valves. Connect the valve to your first stage via a 3/8" UNF male coupling. This valve represents the ultimate in dry suit inflation.
