Meva Saturn

 

The Saturn double hose regulator was producted by Meva company.

The regulator Saturn was developed by Josef Voríšek (1923-2012) at the Institute of Solid State Physics (CSAV) in Prague - Czechoslovaquia between 1960 - 1969.

In 1967, the first samples of Saturn were built for use in the fire department, and in 1969 a version for divers was produced. The production took place in 1970 in the city MH Libcice nad Vltavou. About 55 pieces were buitl. The CG-45.com collection has the #21.

 

  

After that the production was relocated to MEVA in Roudnice nad Labem, but only the breathing apparatus for rescue workers and firefighters. I was produced about 10,000 pieces.

The double hose regulator Saturn for diving was made in a small number, because of this it has a high collectible value and virtually unreachable.

         

 

 

In 1997 there was again a small trial edition of five scuba regulators Saturn by MEVA (PM01-PM05) with the lid embossing "SATURN MEVA MADE IN CZECH REPUBLIC", identical to its predecessors, but now with the usual G5 / 8 " connection provided.

The regulator body of the single stage Saturn regulator is in principle very similar when compared to Mistral, but stuck in the lever mechanism of Voríšek's ingenious idea.
