What’s the difference between a DIN and yoke regulator first stage?
Choosing a regulator first stage can be a challenge if you don’t understand how DIN and yoke styles differ. Ultimately, it comes down to how they attach, and the location of the o-ring. On a yoke first stage, also known as an a-clamp style, the o-ring is exposed on the cylinder valve. The first stage then has an opening which connects to this exposed o-ring, and a pin which screws into the back of the cylinder valve to hold it in place. The regulator becomes sealed once it’s pressurised by turning the cylinder on.
DIN (an acronym of Deutsche Industrie Norm) differs as it is a threaded opening which screws directly into the cylinder valve. On a DIN regulator, the o-ring is built into the first stage rather than sitting on the valve. Next up, we’ll share the advantages of a DIN regulator and why they’re becoming the norm within modern scuba diving.
