    Send an email to Mark Derrick at DGX...Dive Gear Express...he doesn't sell Apeks...but he has several O2 cleaned packages for 50% to 100 %...with no further cleaning req'd...also contact Chris at Deep-6...

    Any reg can be O2 cleaned by a qualified service tech...dis-assemble...O2 clean with Crystal Simple Green/warm water...dry...reassemble using O2 compatible lubricant...and O2 cleaned Viton ''O'' rings...in a clean environment...

    Any good shop can provide this service for you...and remember...your reg is really only O2 cleaned until it's used...as any ''questionable'' fill will contaminate it...

    I have two of the packages as shown...from DGX...they were O2 cleaned for 100% O2 application when purchased...for intended use...they're perfect...

    Hope this helps...

    A random 70s regulator, not at all intended for high o2 exposure, isn’t really much like a brand new (and so not yet contaminated) 2019 Apeks, I do worry about contamination.

    My Snark had an oil filled SPG...
