The steel cylinders are manufactured at Worthington Cylinder's state of the art facility in Tilbury, Canada The cylinders are manufactured using the Deep Draw and Ironing (DDI) process Cylinders start from a circular plate of chrome-moly steel Multiple draws on a hydraulic press transform the plate into an open ended shell The shell is then closed, the neck is formed and the threads are machined The DDI process produces the most consistence wall thickness resulting in the lightest weight, most efficient cylinders This manufacturing process is what allows us to supply cylinders with the best buoyancy characteristics for scuba diving

During the process of Hot Dip Galvanizing, the exterior of our steel cylinders are submerged into 840-F molten zinc The process deposits an 8 - 10 mil thick zinc barrier to protect against the corrosive ocean environment This layer of zinc metallurgically bonds to the steel cylinder It will not chip and wear away like a painted zinc finish XS Scuba is so confident that exterior rust will not be an issue, we guarantee it for the life of the cylinder If the exterior of your XS Scuba HDG steel cylinder rusts, we'll correct it for as long as you own the cylinder, without cost to you

Steel Cylinder Features:

Manufacturing Process
Built from Chromium Molybdenum steel plates
Utilizes the deep drawn process; the preferred method to build a SCUBA steel cylinder
This process yields a cylinder with a very uniform wall thickness resulting in a lighter, more efficient cylinder

Buoyancy
Superior buoyancy characteristics
These cylinders have been designed to be slightly negative at the end of a dive

Exterior Finish
A three-step, rust-preventative process
Consists of shot blasting, protective zinc coating, followed by a durable powder coat finish

Interior Finish
Highly-resistant to internal rusting
Phosphatized interior

Nitrox Ready
Cleaned and sealed at the factory
Free of hydrocarbons to a level of 40 mg per square meter
Ready for pre-blended Nitrox up to 40% FO2

Valves
All XS Scuba steel cylinders include the Thermo PRO valve
Convertible design allows for standard yoke or 230 bar DIN connections
Standard inlet thread (3/4"-14 NPSM) allows upgrade to any other Thermo valve
These valves are clean for pre-blended Nitrox up to40% FO2

Boots
Included with all XS Scuba steel cylinders
Quality, self-draining design
