Product Description


Apeks 12 Litre Sidemount Cylinders feature extremely smooth Apeks valves and are slightly longer for improved trim and balance. Apeks valves are made to extremely tight tolerances, this ensures that their operation is as smooth and as easy possible. This feature is a necessity for shutting a valve down with confidence should a failure occur while underwater. Long, soft rubber handwheels give great leverage plus have storage for a spare DIN o-ring in the end. The internal components of the valve are nickel plated for improved protection and longevity. Securing the top of the cylinders when sidemounting is made easier thanks to the long manifold/plug thread that extends from the side of the valve. 

The Apeks 12 litre sidemount cylinders are made by Vitkovice and have round bottoms. These have the advantage of being longer than the equivalent tall 12 litre Faber, this helps to shift the centre of gravity down the body aiding trim and balance. Round bottom Vitkovice cylinders tend to have a slightly more balanced feel whereas the flat bottom versions can be uncomfortably bottom heavy in some cases.
