About Luxfer 80 Cubic Foot Aluminum Tank with Pro Valve

In 1988, Luxfer introduced scuba tanks manufactured from L6X, a proprietary formula of aluminum alloy 6061-T6 developed by Luxfer metallurgists to provide superior corrosion-resistance and dependable performance in the most demanding underwater environments. The manufacturing of Luxfer scuba cylinders has been relocated to the Graham, North Carolina factory. The original tooling is being used to maintain the same specifications, buoyancy and weight distribution. Proprietary L6X 6061-T6 aluminum alloy which has an unsurpassed record for safety and dependability will continue to be used. Luxfer is the preferred choice by military, commercial and technical divers worldwide.

The Aluminum 80 cu ft (11.1 liters) cylinder is the staple of the diving industry. You most likely used them in your first Scuba Class and on most charter boats around the world. The tank is a 3000 psi (200 bars) service pressure tank measuring 25.8" (65.5cm) tall with a 7.3" (18.5cm) diameter. The cylinder weighs 24.4lbs (18.64kg) is negative 1.7lbs (771g) when full in salt water and is positively buoyant 4.2lbs (1.9kg) when empty.

The cylinder comes with a 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 (3,000 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 Luxfer 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.

        Comments about Luxfer 80 Aluminum tank with Pro Valve:

        A couple of reviewers have complained about the need to install the valve after the tank was delivered and the cost and inconvenience outweighed the savings. It is unfortunate they rely on such poor dive centers. It cost us $10 to have the valve installed and have the inspection sticker placed on it by our dive center. This tank was only slightly more than the cost of a used tank, with the peace of mind of being brand new, and I got pink! (let my husband try and lose me now!).

        Questions about this item:

        Shopper  What size o-ring does the valve use?.
        Ray B  Is a current VIP Sticker applied when tank is purchased?
        Kate L  No, it's not. We just took the tanks in and had them inspected and filled. No problems at all. The tanks are great.
        Shopper  is there a tank that when used in fresh water would have approximately the same buoyancy characteristics as the normal 80 al in salt water?
        Frank L  No, there is not.
