About Blue Steel Faber Low 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.

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.

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 LP cylinders have a round bottom and come equipped with a cylinder boot.

              Comments about Blue Steel Faber Low Pressure Steel Tank:

              Not all steel tanks are negative at the end of the dive... the LP108 is positive and so are many of the other LP tanks... do your research first and don't assume.... the blue steel website has all the data... it speaks for itself. Most of the HP tanks are, however negative throughout.

              Comments about Blue Steel Faber Low Pressure Steel Tank:

              By taking the time to weight yourself out using the steel tank you can achieve a neutral buoyancy that you can´t with an aluminum tank that is inherently 4 lbs buoyant.

              Low pressure steel tanks do not beat your high pressure stage up when using a compressor like the 3500 psi tanks do.

              Being an old school diver with 57 years experience..I don´t use a BC (I consider them dangerous , I can dive in summer with out a weight belt, and be perfectly neutral from 200 feet to about 20 feet, which means I don´t end up standing on my head upside down while completing any decompression. DIVE ONE AND YOU WILL NEVER GO BACK TO AN ALUMINUM TANK !
