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" (65.5 cm) tall with a 7.3" (18.5 cm) diameter. The cylinder weighs 31.5 (14.3 kg) is negative 1.7 lbs. (771 g) when full in salt water and is positively buoyant 4.2 lbs. (1.9 kg) 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 up to 23.5% 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.

Great tank, terrible valve.......

The Luxfer tank speaks for itself, have owned 5 of them in the past all with Sherwood valves. This tank shouldn't be fitted with the so called Pro Valve, it has excessive play in opening and closing and the knob retainer loosens with use. Buy a better valve if you purchase a new tank......

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Thomas H  Quality, great price, and superior customer assistance!
Charles K  Hydrostatic Testing. It says Valve will be removed for shipping and will require re inspection. Is that a Visual Inspection or Both Visual and Hydrostatic?
KEVIN F  It will require a visual inspection before installing the valve and filling. The hydro is good for 5 years in the US after original manufacture.
Shopper  How would one of these tanks provide the purpose of filling an air rifle?
DONALD R  I bought one for this very purpose. It works great. With the shoebox compressor it does take 24 hrs to fill but once full you are burping off very little volume to fill your PCP chamber. If you are in a location that fills SCUBA tanks it can be cheap to have them filled rather than buying a compressor, paintball places may work for you also.
