Remote Exhaust Elbow Inflation Hose Options
Remote Exhaust Elbow Inflation Hose Options How to Replace an Inflation Assembly
  • 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
  • Choose from three (3) different hose 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. 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, Oxycheq and DGX Gears (and some others) brand aircells. Not compatible with SeaQuest, Scubapro, Hollis, Halcyon, Zeagle, OMS, Mares, Aqualung and some other major brands.

NOTE: The Bladder Flange Gasket is NOT included.

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.

When installing or reinstalling the elbow, make certain the gasket is 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.
