Inflation Assemblies - Plain Elbow

Plain Elbow Inflation Assembly, { 12 in | 30.5 cm } Hose
Plain Elbow Inflation Assembly, { 12 in | 30.5 cm } Hose Plain Elbow Inflation Assembly, { 16 in | 40.6 cm } Hose Plain Elbow Plain Elbow - Side View Plain Elbow Assemblies Size Comparison
  • Complete corrugated hose assembly with a "plain elbow" at the top
  • Ideal for diving in overhead environments - eliminates a "failure" point
  • Choose from two (2) different lengths - 16" is most common length
  • Compatible with all Dive Rite, Oxycheq and DGX brand wings
  • NOTE: The Bladder Flange Gasket is NOT included

Most single tank air cells come standard with a low-pressure hose, oral/power inflator, corrugated hose, and depending on the model either a remote exhaust elbow dump valve or a plain elbow. Most double tank air cells come standard with a low-pressure hose, oral/power inflator, corrugated hose, and a plain non-exhaust elbow. This design is preferred by technical, cave and wreck divers because of the reduction of the "failure" point found on common Remote Exhaust (Pull-to-Dump) assemblies.

Compatible with all Dive Rite, Oxycheq and DGX Gears (and some others) brand aircells. Not compatible with SeaQuest, Scubapro, Mares, Hollis, Halcyon, Zeagle, OMS, Aqualung and some other major brands.

NOTE: The Bladder Flange Gasket is NOT included.

Many technical diving companies have, for years, used a corrugated hose made with an EPDM rubber blend raw material that has been used in diving applications for decades with excellent performance in the field. The material includes a surfactant that exhibits a gradual "blooming" of a white haze on the surface of the hose as it dries over time following manufacturing. The bloom is purely cosmetic and although harmless, if you wish, it can easily be scrubbed off with soap, water, and a cloth.

    This fits my Dive Rite Venture Wing no problem. Don't forget to keep the washer from your old assembly, or purchase a new one as such is not included here. DGX shipping was super fast and efficient. Thanks, y'all.

Replacing Air Cell Inflation Assembly Elbows

How to Turn an Elbow Elbow, Gasket, Flange

When removing and replacing an air cell elbow, it is important this task be done correctly; otherwise damage may result.

The most important thing to remember is to turn only the collar at the base of the hose elbow, and not the elbow itself. Turning the elbow results in loosening the flange that mates the elbow to the air cell bladder. Once loosened, this flange cannot be re-tightened, except with special tools. It is best to avoid any possibility of this happening by holding the elbow stationary, while turning only the collar.

When installing or re-installing the elbow, make certain the gasket is in place between the elbow and flange. As you tighten the collar, avoid cross threading the collar and flange. You will feel the elbow lock into one of eight different positions. If the elbow assumes the wrong position, loosen the collar, re-orient the elbow and begin again.

After hand tightening the collar as far as it will go, fully inflate the air cell and check for leaks. The air cell should be able to remain fully inflated for several minutes without exhibiting any substantial air loss.
