TUSA Regulator Recall

from the May, 2010 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

Tabata USA is recalling about 250 TUSA RS-670 regulators. The first-stage’s balance chamber plug can loosen from the regulator, causing a high-pressure leak, creating unstable pressure and posing a drowning hazard. Undercurrent called TUSA’s customer service line but the representative couldn’t tell us how the faulty plug was discovered. However, on TUSA’s website, it says the company was “recently informed” about the loosening of the plug, suggesting TUSA dealers and/or customers discovered the problem.

The recall for the regulators involves the following serial numbers: UR600022 through UR600029, UR600031 through UR600103, UR6000637 through UR6000676, UR600708 through UR600716, UR600737 through UR600776. The serial number and TUSA logo are printed on the regulators, which were made in Japan and sold in the U.S. between May and September 2009.

Customers should immediately stop using the regulators and return the product to TUSA or an authorized dealer for a free inspection and replacement. For information, call TUSA at (800) 482-2282 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Pacific, Monday through Friday, or e-mail info@tusa.com.
