ok all you tekkies and equipment fundies...

Atomic are saying that you can use all of their regs with up to 40% N2. They strongly suggest that if you use N2 with your equipment, then you should not switch back and forth from standard compressed air and N2.

Scubapro are saying that you CANNOT use titanium regs at all, with N2 (i.e., they have not perfected it yet.)

Anyone use the MK25T (titanium) with nitrox? does anyone have any useful info on this subject?

Nobody that I dive with uses the Ti regs because they cost so much more than normal regs, and when you need at least 5 different regs to do the dives we do then it gets to be way too expensive.

I think the warnings on Ti came about because of a regulator fire that happend in Southern California a couple of years ago. One of the Ti deco regs went up in flames.

Hope that helps a little.

All the info I have red says that Ti becomes very brittle durning exposure to high levels of 02.

Don't remember reading anything about fire, always thought that was a lube issue.
