The Zeagle F8 Regulator is a new flagship regulator model with a completely new platform second stage design. The Zeagle F8 Regulator name is derived from the well-established Zeagle Flathead Series Regulators.
After long deliberation and many designs Atomic Aquatics and Zeagle teamed up and redesigned the original Flathead regulator and were able to come up with the new Zeagle F8 Regulator. With 20 different improvements on everything from the inner mechanisms and materials to the exterior and aesthetics, the Zeagle F8 Regulator breathes better, works harder and last longer than any other regulator Zeagle has ever made.
The Zeagle F8 Regulator 1st stage has a dry-sealed spring chamber (to stop freezing at water temperatures below 40 degrees F). All delicate parts of the 1st stage including the main spring are sealed behind the clear hydrostatic diaphragm away from the effects of salt or other contaminants in the water, making it environmentally sealed. The Zeagle F8 Regulator first stage is very low in profile, barely extending above the tank valve, and places the low pressure hoses directly out to the sides, in a pattern preferred by many divers.
The Zeagle F8 Regulator comes with the New Neoflon seat:
Zeagle F8 Regulators conical precision high-pressure valve provides much greater reliability and service life compared to conventional designs, while improving responsiveness and performance at all breathing rates.
Work of breathing at heavy demand:
0.72 Joule/Liter 198 (60M) depth, 750 psi inlet, 62.5 RMV (liters per minute respiratory volume)Like all Zeagle regulators, The Flathead-7 comes factory ready for use with EAN/ NITROX to 40% O2.
The Zeagle F8 Regulator is equipped with many new features:
1st Stage Features:
Balanced Diaphragm design and the environmentally sealed ambient chamber ensure top performance in any condition
Redesigned environmental seal cap and yoke knob enhance ergonomics and design
Precision machine neoflon seat harder more reliable material, keeping you diving longer
Zeagle F8 Regulator First Stage Materials:
Seat: Neoflon (PCTFE)
HP Valve: Stainless Steel
2nd Stage Features:
The Zeagle F8 Regulators new inhalation diaphragm provides superior tear strength and improves response time to breathing (super soft silicone molded over a low friction disk)
Improved exhaust valve ensures dryness and a lower exhalation effort
Seat-saving orifice, compliments of Atomic Aquatics, retracts when not in use - extending the life of the breathing tube seat (#5,803,073)
Seat comprised of soft silicone molded over a metal insert to deliver the firmness required for an airtight seal while maintaining the necessary elasticity to prevent leaking.
Redesigning front cover and inhalation effort control knob use co-molded components that provide the necessary grip, soft touch and ease of use. Available in several color kits
Zirconium-Plated inlet tube and heat sink for superior corrosion resistance.
Redesigned heat sink dramatically increases surface area, aiding in the heat exchange necessary to avoid freeze up
Zeagle F8 Regulator comes with a co-molded silicone mouthpieces for better fit and less jaw fatigue
Zeagle F8 Regulator 2nd Stage Materials:
Case: Nylon 12
Poppet Seat: 316 SS Insert with silicone overmold
Diaphragm: Elastomeric Polymer
Exhaust Valve: Silicone
The Zeagle F8 Regulator is available with two different first stage configurations
