The Atomic ST1 Regulator is a high quality beautifully crafted regulator that delivers outstanding performance and looks great. The 5 ported swivel turret 1st stage is machined from a unique 316 stainless steel, unlike conventional brass 1st stages, which performs better and is kinder to the environment.
The 1st stage has 5 Low Pressure ports on a swiveling turret which allow the hoses to rotate around the first stage with the 5th port facing upwards. This gives added flexibility in hose routing prefered by many sidemount divers.
The 2nd stage also features a swivel ball joint on the hose that reduces jaw fatigue as the hose can route in at a greater degree instead of just 90°.
The internal mechanism of the 2nd stage uses the same Titanium parts as the T2 and B2 models which is stronger, lighter and has a greater corrosion resistance compared to brass or stainless steel parts.
The 2nd stage also features a Seat Saving Orifice that takes the pressure off the seal enhancing the lifetime and performance of the regulator. Inside the 2nd stage is a soft seal and an orifice pushed against it behind a spring which only opens when you draw a breathe. When disconnected from your cylinder the SSO pulls the orifice back relieving the pressure against the seat. As soon as the regulator is pressurised or submerged the spring reactivates to seal the 2nd stage.
Automatic Flow Control
The ST1 2nd stage features Atomic's AFC system that automatically interrupts freeflows before they occur by using a flexible venturi system that redirects freeflowing gas back into the 2nd stage to equalise the pressure.

Atomic ST1 Regulator - Features
?This feature allows the diver to adjust the inhalation setting from the set level and increase the effort required to open the 2nd stage valve to deliver air.
?The venturi control affects how air flows in the 2nd stage. In it's positive position the flow of gas creates a vacuum against the diapragm, helping to open the valve. In it's negative position it will divert gas back against the diaphragm helping to close the valve. It is basically used to help prevent free flowing.
|Cold Water Rated|
?Cold water has adverse effects on regulators and can cause some to freeze so each regulator combination must be tested during manufacturing for their performance in different water temperatures.
Cold water is defined by EN250 as below 10°C. If a regulator combination cannot meet the performance standards below 10°C then they are only suitable for warm waters.
EN250 / (EN250A >10°C)
To pass the regulator must provide at least 62.5 L/min of air at 50M depth above 10°C.
|Cold & Warm Water|
?Environmentally sealed 1st stages offer greater protection against freezing when diving in cold water (below 10 degrees C)
Scubapro have a new method of cold water proofing their first stages called the eXtended Thermal Insulating System or XTIS which still allows water into the first stage but the internal parts that come into contact with the water are coated to prevent ice from forming.
?Unbalanced regulators are affected by the pressure in the cylinder, becoming slighty harder to breathe from when the pressure starts to drop.
Balanced regulators are not affected by the cylinder pressure or depth.
Over-balanced regulators achieve unprecedented performance by increasing your air supply the deeper you go providing the best breathe for deep divers.
|High Pressure Ports|
?High pressure ports supply the pressure gauge and wireless transmitters for dive computers
|Low Pressure Ports|
?Low pressure ports supply the 2nd stages and inflator hoses
?An Unbalanced second stage is simply a lever operated valve that is opened and closed as the diaphragm is pulled inwards by the vacuum that is created when the diver inhales. An unbalanced second stage is affected by increased pressure at depth, slightly increasing the effort required to open the valve.
A Balanced second stage overcomes the effects of increased pressure by utilising a balancing chamber. This chamber takes some of the work away from the spring mechanism, allowing a smaller spring to be used which results in an easier breathe. As the chamber uses air to balance the valve it maintains the same resistance as the diver descends and ascends, keeping the inhalation effort the same.
