just in case some of you out there were not aware...(i took this off another dive bbs):

"The Fall issue of IMMERSED has a statement from Atomic Aquatics warning of using their titanium regs with any mix above 40%. It went on to say that they didn't recommend using hot mixes with their brass regs either, but it pointed out that titanium has a far lower burning temperature than brass or stainless. I would think that since DAN recalled their aluminum first stages, that this is true for aluminum first stages as well.


(I am not picking on Atomic. I respect them for making this safety statement. Just remember that there are several regs out there under different names that use titanium!)"

if you'd like to follow the short thread, here is the link:
