The Avox 803140-00-03 Pressur-Vak II is designed to administer oxygen or gas mixtures to a diver or patient in a hyperbaric chamber environment. The demand regulator assembly provides breathing gas on demand (inhalation). The regulator is designed to operate with a constant inlet pressure of 65 to 125 psig over chamber pressure.
For chamber depths over 60 FSW, a secondary vacuum regulator must be installed. It is recommended to use a negative spring biased back pressure differential regulator, such as the Tescom Regulator 26-2912-282A. A hull-stop valve should be an integral part of the system as a safety device to shut down the vacuum should a pressure loss occur. The vacuum regulator allows the exhaled gases to be carried to the outside of the chamber thereby eliminating oxygen buildup or contamination of the chamber environment. The vacuum of the exhaled gas is a direct function of the differential pressure of the chamber and the ambient environment. The Avox Pressur-Vak II pressure reducing regulator is a small reliable regulator assembly with an oxygen cleaned quick disconnect socket.
The Avox 803140-00-03 Pressur-Vak II comes complete with Medium Long Face Seal with Standard Strap Assembly, First Stage Regulator Assembly, Microphone Assembly, Demand and Exhaust Dual Hose Assembly with Quick Disconnects, Demand Regulator Assembly and Exhaust Regulator Assembly.
Warning: The Pressur-Vak II is designed for surface decompression in a recompression chamber and is not intended for underwater use. It may also be used for other applications which require overboard discharge of exhaled gas.

Can the AVOX Oxygen Mask hoses and diaphragms be cleaned using a sterilizing machine? The sterilizing machine operates at 212°F (100°C).
The AVOX Oxygen Mask was not designed to be cleaned by a sterilizing machine. We recommend using SaniZide-Plus to disinfect your AVOX Inhalator. You can also clean all metal and non-metal parts with nonionic detergent such as “Ivory Liquid” and warm water (110 °F maximum). Rinse with clear water and dry completely before storing or using.
The information provided should be used as a guideline only. Every company should have their own procedures in place for cleaning and/or disinfecting safety equipment used in oxygen and breathing environments.
Are the hose connections on the Amron BIBS mask the same as the Avox hose connections?
Yes, both the Amron and Avox BIBS Mask connect to same Hansen quick disconnects. Amron part number 59853-00 for the exhaust quick disconnect and 18969-00 for the oxygen inlet.
