About Catalina 100 Cubic Aluminum Tank with Pro Valve, Black

Catalina 100 cu ft (13.2 liter) cylinder with K Pro Valve, the K Pro Valve is one of the highest flow cylinder valves available today and is also a convertible valve. Whether you dive Yoke or DIN regulators this valve will work for both. Valve has easily removed 200 bar DIN insert to convert the valve for use with DIN regulators. Valve has a heavy duty deign with a smooth operating mechanism and multi-ported burst disc plug for added safety.

Aluminum cylinders unlike steel cylinders don't rust, they oxidize. The oxidization of aluminum forms a protective coat that hinders the continuation of corrosion making aluminum cylinders less likely to be condemned due to excessive corrosion.

The Catalina 100 cu ft (13.2 liter) cylinder has an 8" (203.2 mm) diameter weighs 46.2 lbs (21 kg) when empty is 27.3" (693 mm) tall without the valve and its buoyancy when full is -7.8 lbs (-3.54 kg). The cylinder never becomes positive retaining a -0.4 lb (-0.18 kg) buoyancy characteristic when completely empty. This allows the diver who uses a standard aluminum 80 cut ft (11.1 liter) cylinder to lower the required amount of lead on their belt or BCD pockets by over 4 lbs (1.81 kg), and gives them approximately 20 cu ft (3 liters) additional air for each dive. When shipped the tanks valves will be removed and the tank will require re-inspection before being filled. Note: All Catalina cylinders are nitrox ready and meet certificated specifications of the US Department of Transportation (DOT) with DOT-3AL specification and Transport Canada Safety and Security (TC) with TC-3ALM specifications. Purchasers should check with other country requirements to know if the cylinders are certified for use in that country. The U.S DOT has interpreted its regulations stating that DOT-3AL (aluminum) SCUBA cannot be charged with oxygen enriched air to a service pressure greater than 3000psi. Thus, Catalina Cylinders 3300psi compact SCUBA cylinders cannot be charged with oxygen enriched air as mandated by the DOT. For more information on this matter please contact Catalina Cylinders.
