XS Scuba’s DIN Valves are designed and manufactured for long life and heavy use. The DIN Valve is no exception. Valve is made of marine grade brass with triple bright chrome plating for long life protection in salt water. Precision machined from high tension brass and chrome plated valve stems for years of service and corrosion free operation. Easy grip soft rubber safety hand wheel with stainless steel insert ensures long life and large ribs make turning handle easy even when wearing gloves. This unique safety hand wheel allows the diver to visually see if the valve is completely turned on and off with a set of colored rings that appear on the valve side of the hand wheel. If you see Red” the valve is off. If you see Green” the valve is completely open and ready for diving. New hand wheel takes the guess work out of knowing your valve is fully open and ready for diving.
Valve bonnets are O-ring sealed. Valve has a dedicated DIN outlet for air service only at 300 bars (4,350 psi) service pressure. You won’t need to crank” on the valve when you open and close it with the 1.5-hand wheel rotation from full-on to fully-off. The valves seat assembly is Teflon coated for years of smooth operation and a one-piece safety plug protected within the valve body guards against damage during transport. Vale has a 5/32″ hex key dip tube and can be converted to 3500 psi (240 bars) with a safety plug change. All this and more makes this the valve of choice for the serious diver.
