LIGHTER component parts – The first-stage yoke is designed using minimal material. First and second stage components are precision-machined from solid titanium billet. The Titanium T3 first stage is precision-machined from a solid piece of material requiring 23 individual operations. The 23 operations are performed in a single continuous milling session at our own Atomica manufacturing facility. That means each body is carefully and expertly crafted under our watchful eyes to conform to only the most exacting standards.
The Atomic AFC is so advanced, we were granted a US patent for its design. The venturi effect inside a second stage makes it breathe easy, and the Atomic AFC eliminates the manual adjustment normally needed to regulate venturi effect as you dive deeper. No dials to turn or buttons to push ‚ but we include a rapid adjustment knob for rare special situations. A computer-designed airfoil inside the mouthpiece is connected to a pressure-sensing diaphragm, allowing the airfoil to change position with response to depth. The AFC is the reason Atomic regulators breathe with a comfortable natural feeling at any depth. (US Patent #5,678,541)
The Atomic Limited Lifetime Warranty is NOT contingent on proof of annual service.
Atomic T3 Regulator: 3-Year/300- Dive Service Interval
Your regulator is the soul of your dive system. You don’t need to worry about it performing…especially if you are in some remote location where competent repair is a remote concept. That’s why every Atomic Aquatics regulator is built using materials and processes that resist corrosion and minimize maintenance – so you can log lots of dives over a long time with supreme confidence. While every regulator benefits from annual servicing, Atomic regs do not require it. So you can worry less and dive more with Atomic.
Atomic Aquatics goes to great lengths to find corrosion-resistant materials that steadfastly resist the corrosive effects of ocean water.
This is an actual photo showing the corrosive effects of sea water on regulator breathing inlet tubes following a six-month continuous exposure “soak” test. A competitor’s conventional brass tube (top) simply cannot compete with the Atomic Titanium breathing tube (bottom) which shows no corrosion. Even an Atomic Brass breathing tube is Zirconium-plated and would not experience the level of corrosion of the competition.
PERFORMANCE: Lightweight, attractive, machined from exotic metals and packed full of groundbreaking features and functions, Atomic’s “T” series regs are what diving dreams are made of. This year, a new high-performance, high-dollar T-reg has been released: the T3. Precision machined from solid titanium billet, with redesigned component parts to shave off even more weight, the T3 is the lightest, sleekest full-size reg around. Performance wise, it’s hard to beat. It turned in top scores on the breathing machine, sliding effortlessly through the standard test range and beyond. When the test reg was turned over to divers for the ocean work, there was a near riot to see who would take it down first. No one surfaced disappointed. From ease of breathing to dryness to bubble interference to the effectiveness of the user control, the T3 delivered the goods with style.
BOTTOM LINE: Made for divers who want the best, virtually every tester put the T3 at the top of their Favorites list, making it the undisputed Testers’ Choice in this year’s Over $500 category.
