Product : ATX/ XTX Regulators
SER NO: 701 0001 – 807 0001
Date : 26TH June 2008
It has come to our attention that ATX / XTX regulators produced between January 2007 and June 2008 could have a potentially serious defect.
The problem is related to the 2nd stage assembly of any XTX / ATX regulator, including any
XTX / ATX Stage 3 set and octopus which fall within the range of serial numbers 701 0001 and 807 0001.
It has come to our attention that the diaphragm cover (see diagram) may have been missed during the assembly of the 2nd stage and under certain conditions, this could allow the diaphragm to become displaced. This can be visually inspected through the front cover, but ideally the front cover should be removed to ensure the diaphragm cover is in place.
