Tek Tip Warning Image WARNING

Most authorized dealers are able to perform warranty, repair and service work on your equipment. Availability of sub-assemblies and components, repair parts, specialized tools and maintenance manuals does not imply qualification to assemble and/or service scuba equipment. Service by other than an authorized dealer voids the warranty on all products we sell. Improper service of dive equipment can lead to serious injury or death.

Dive Gear Express recommends that divers participating in more advanced technical and exploration type diving be trained in equipment service. We recommend that non-qualified individuals seek professional training/mentoring before attempting repairs or servicing on any diving equipment.

SCUBA Regulator DIN Connector O-ring Sizes

The ISO 12209 standard specification for dimensions of the O-ring groove in the nose of the 232 bar and 300 bar DIN connectors for compressed air has an inside dimension of 12 mm and an outside dimension of 17 mm. In 2003, the standard depth for the groove was revised from the original 1.9 mm to a slightly deeper 2 mm. The specification for the sealing O-ring itself is an inside diameter of 11.2 mm with a cross section of 2.65 mm. From what we have been able to determine, few SCUBA regulator manufacturers seem to use the current standard groove and O-ring in the universal DIN fittings found on their first stages; perhaps because the original standard design had a tendency for the O-ring to fall out of the connector when it was removed from the outlet.

The sealing O-ring in the nose of the DIN connector groove we find on most SCUBA regulator first stages is commonly an SAE AS568 and BS ISO 3601 imperial standard 112 size that is equivalent to 12.37 X 2.62 metric dimensions. In the case of a few regulators, notably Apeks and ScubaPro brands, their groove better accepts the next smaller 111 size O-ring that is equivalent to 10.77 X 2.62 metric dimensions. Both the 112 and 111 size O-rings are very common sizes available in a variety of choices for material and durometer. The groove in the Cressi and Poseidon brand regulator DIN connectors measures closest to the original standard, best accepting a BS ISO 3601 metric size O-ring with 11.3 X 2.4 dimensions for which there is no imperial standard equivalent. The M2.4X11.3 size O-ring is uncommon, especially in a material suitable for use with Nitrox. (FYI, the O-ring in Yoke K-valves is easy, it is always an 014 size.)

Compared to the 111 size, the M2.4X11.3 size is slightly smaller cross section and slightly larger diameter with a good fit for the O-ring groove of the DIN connectors on Cressi and Poseidon regulators. Because of availability, most Nitrox and technical divers make do with a 111 size O-ring for their Cressi and Poseidon regulators, but the 111 is not as good a fit for the connector of those two brands. However, Dive Gear Express does stock a generic Viton M2.4X11.3 O-ring and also the OEM Poseidon regulator DIN connector O-Ring.

In the European Union nations, the EN 144-3:2003 standard requires a valve outlet known as M26x2 to be used on dive cylinders containing oxygen or Nitrox mixtures with greater than 22% oxygen. The M26x2 outlet is similar in appearance but slightly larger than the standard DIN outlet, and thus incompatible with the standard DIN connector found on SCUBA regulators. The purpose of this incompatible valve outlet is to force the dedication of cylinders, regulators and fill stations to Nitrox use. The sealing O-ring in the nose of the M26x2 connector is 13.9 X 2.6 metric dimensions, equivalent to the 113 size. The M26x2 outlet and connector for Nitrox and oxygen is very rarely seen outside the EU.
