  • Complete corrugated hose assembly with a "pull dump" at the top
  • To exhaust gas from the air cell you need only pull gently on the inflator portion

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. With a remote exhaust elbow, a cable runs from the inflator inside the corrugated hose up to the remote exhaust dump valve. To exhaust gas from the air cell, you need only tug gently on the inflator. This is the most preferred option for open water divers as this feature works best when in a more "upright" position and offers an excellent option for dumping gas during ascent at the end of your dive.

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

NOTE: The Bladder Flange Gasket is NOT included. See Related Products.

NOTE: Measurements Reflect the Length of the Corrugated Hose, Not the Overall Assembly

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.

Replacing Air Cell Inflation Assembly Elbows

Removing and replacing an air cell elbow must 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 either loosening or damaging the flanges that mate the elbow to the air cell bladder. The video illustrates using a tool to turn the collar, but frankly the best tool to use is simply to turn the collar by hand.

When installing or reinstalling the elbow, make certain the gasket is centered in place between the elbow flange and bladder flange. As you tighten the collar, avoid cross threading by first turning counterclockwise until you hear a click. As you begin turning the collar clockwise, you will feel the elbow seat into the flange and lock into one of several possible positions. If the elbow assumes the wrong position, loosen the collar, reorient the elbow and begin again.

After 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. You may find the gasket has compressed after a few days and you will need to snug up the collar again, tightening one eighth to one quarter turn by hand.
