About Faber High Pressure Steel Tank

If you are not 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 we produce 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 our capabilities and the breadth of our range. Faber Tanks and valves are nitrox ready.

White Cylinders come equipped with a DIN/K type valve, (Metal Grey Cylinders come equipped with XS Scuba PRO valve with Safety handwheel) 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.

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 an aluminum cylinder. Faber HP cylinders have a round bottom and come equipped with a cylinder boot. 15 CF, 23CF No Tank Boot Available, 40 CF Tank Boot not Included

When shipped the tanks valves will be removed and the tank will require re-inspection before being filled

Go for the worthington steel

Nice tank but the boot that comes with it is the rubber type and will cause rust if left on.

Nice tank but the boot that comes with it is the rubber type and will cause rust if left on.

Also the valve was cheap - I recommend you purchase the Worthington steel tanks instead. I bought one of each. They were cheaper and better valve

    This is the second Faber HP 80 steel I bought. The tanks are great as they are small and lite enough to attach a pony bottle without breaking my back. Stores great on my boat too. Great diving characteristics.

        Comments about Faber High Pressure Steel Tank:

        The HP100 is the perfect all round tank. I dive the 100 and my GF dives an 80 and we come up the same. I like the HP 80, 100, and 120 the best because they are 7 1/4 and fit in all the charters racks. I recommend using tank nets or sleaves to protect white tank finishes.
