4 O-ring Removal (Pinch Method)
Pinch Method: Using fingers, push on opposite sides to create protrusion Use only brass or plastic pics to remove o-rings, this will protect delicate seating surfaces Never reuse o-rings P/n

5 Product Features Go directly to disassembly

6 Features Pneumatically Balanced Second Stage Dual-Cam Controller
Asymmetrical Side-X Exhaust EN 250 Coldwater Approved Nitrox Compatible to 40%

7 Features (Balanced) Pneumatically Balanced Second Stage
For increased performance at any depth or cylinder pressure

8 Features (Dual-Cam) Dual-Cam Controller
Combined venturi and breathing resistance control for fast and simple diver adjustments

9 Features (Side-X Exhaust)
Asymmetrical Side-X Exhaust Routes bubbles out of your viewing area Directs warm exhaled air over the 2nd stage valve for increased freezing resistance

10 Exhausting!

11 Features (Coldwater) The Kronos 2nd stage is EN 250 approved for cold water use when used with the Kronos Supreme model 1st stage Due to the Side-X exhaust, exhaled gases warm the mechanism as it goes through the baffle

12 Features (Nitrox) The Kronos is nitrox (EAN) compatible to 40% out of the box Built with a high level of cleanliness EAN compatible components and lubricants Have passed required adiabatic compression testing to ensure their safety and compatibility

13 Features (Nitrox) Responsibility of the owner to maintain the cleanliness of the regulator If regulator will be used interchangeably with breathing air, the air should be oxygen-compatible or “hyper-filtered” whereas the condensed hydrocarbons do not exceed 0.1 mg/m3 Grade E air does not necessarily meet this criterion Hydrocarbons found in Grade E air can pose a risk in the presence of elevated oxygen content

14 Features (Nitrox) Hydrocarbons build up over time along the passageways of the equipment When hydrocarbons come in contact with high-pressure oxygen enriched air, they can pose a very real hazard that can lead to combustion If a regulator has had use with Grade E breathing air, it should receive a standard overhaul, including ultrasonic cleaning with a detergent solution, that removes hydrocarbons, prior to being put back into nitrox service

15 Features (Nitrox) Although second stage components are not exposed to high pressure EAN, Aqualung recommends that the same cleaning procedures be followed for the complete regulator This prevents the possibility of cross contamination and guarantees the cleanliness of the entire regulator

41 Inspect Exhaust Valve Replace if necessary

42 Technician Features No o-ring on valve body
New counter-balance chamber New diaphragm and lever Reverse thread on cam Wrench flats on cam that engage with venturi. This allows venturi adjustment to increase or decrease spring tension (DUAL CAM) Red clip holding venturi in place Side-X exhaust cannot be completely removed without first removing mp hose

43 This Concludes Disassembly

44 Cleaning & Lubrication
Go directly to Reassembly

45 Cleaning Procedures Brass and Stainless Steel Parts
Pre-clean in warm soapy water; nylon bristle brush Ultrasonically clean with soapy water; vinegar OK on tough corrosion Rinse in fresh water; use distilled water if tap water is “hard” Blow dry with lp hydrocarbon free gas (for EAN use)

46 Cleaning Procedures Aluminum, Plastic & Rubber Parts !
Soak in warm, soapy water Use soft nylon bristle brush to remove deposits Rinse with fresh water Blow dry with LP hydrocarbon free gas (for EAN use) CAUTION: DO NOT soak plastic parts in acidic solutions !

47 Cleaning Procedures Regulator Hose
Hose fittings - Ultrasonically clean with soapy water; vinegar OK on tough corrosion Can run soapy water through hose if needed Thoroughly rinse with fresh water Blow out hose before installing

48 Lubrication Procedures
Christo-lube MCG 111 Light film only Remove visible excess If regulator will be used with EAN, you should wear powderless, latex gloves (or equivalent) when lubricating and handling o-rings

49 Reassembly

50 Replace Exhaust Valve Insert new exhaust valve thru center hole
Make sure barb is all the way thru Using side cutters Leave 5mm end after trimming Barb

51 Install Crown O-ring

52 Insert Crown Into Valve Body
Use crown/lever adj tool (p/n ) Screw in crown until tool disengages

53 Install Valve Body into Case

54 Install O-ring & Heat Exchanger

55 Torque Heat Exchanger Tighten heat exchanger by hand until snug
