Get set up with a set of Faber Blue Steel LP 108’s and get ready to smile. If you haven’t been using steel cylinders, try to use one and you will soon realize what you have been missing.
Faber can offer you the most comprehensive range of cylinders for Scuba Diving. Every year Faber produces and sell around the world 100,000 cylinders for scuba diving (out of 600,000 in totals) No other manufacturer in the world can match Faber capabilities and the range of Faber Tanks and valves are Nitrox ready.
Cylinders come equipped with a DIN/K type valve that easily converts back and forth depending on the type of First-Stage Regulator to be used in conjunction with the cylinder increasing the versatility of the tank. Steel cylinders are heavier then the same capacity aluminum cylinder. This characteristic has many advantages. The heavier construction allows the diver to remove lead weight from their weight belt or integrated weight system of the BCD, allowing the diver to better distribute weight by moving it to the rear of the BCD; a great advantage when wearing a back inflation style (Wing) BCD.
With aluminum cylinders as we breathe, the weight of air from them create positive buoyancy at or near the end of a dive. The steel cylinder with its negative buoyancy throughout the dive, allows you to shed the excess lead that is required to keep you properly trimmed while you dive.
