About Catalina 63 Cubic Foot Aluminum Tank with Pro Valve

Great size for primary youth cylinder or instructional pool cylinder, Catalina 63 Cubic Ft Aluminum Tank with Pro Valve, the 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 (3000 psi) 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. 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.

          I like the 80's so I kept it, but I did order the 63 for a light weight wait tank. I like LP a lot great deals but they need to check out what they send out.

              Excellent size for my smaller wife who can live under water far longer with a 63 than I can with a standard 80. Lighter weight with a shorter frame. Would like to be able to order it in different colors.
