Faber steel tanks

By terry

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.

Blue Steel Faber Low Pressure Steel Tank

By Captain P.

Steel tanks allow you to use less weights. I don't need to use high pressure tanks, so these work just fine..

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 Faber 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 their capabilities and the breadth of their 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.

The Faber cylinders are 2640psi (182 bar) working pressure cylinders with a 10% overfill rating, negatively buoyant from -3.8lbs to -5.02lbs (-1.72kg to 2.28kg) when full and are positively buoyant from 2.32lbs to 2.98lbs (1.05kg to 1.35kg) when empty. Cylinders are made from triple protected zinc sprayed and epoxy and polyurethane painted deep drawn chromium molybdenum steel. All cylinders come equipped with a tank boot, Except The L27 cubic foot cylinders do not have an available tank boot. When shipped the tanks valves will be removed and the tank will require re-inspection before being filled Note: All Faber cylinders meet certificated specifications of the US Department of Transportation (DOT) with DOT-3AA specification and Transport Canada Safety and Security (TC) with TC-3AAM specifications. Cylinders are covered by a 48 month limited warranty.

Explanation on the Back Pressure Relief Feature

Explanation on the Back Pressure Relief Feature
Blue Steel Valve

This "indent" on the insert is normal part of manufacturing process. It allows any built up pressure under o-ring to equalize to assure proper pressure seal of o-ring in o-ring groove. In addition it is a point that enables easier removal with o-ring pick and installation of the new “Yoke Seal” o-ring which is a wear item and should be replaced under normal periodic inspection/maintenance.

Warranty Information

This product has a limited warranty of 48 months.

Watch out

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.

For a gas hog like me, these tanks are perfect!

 

Best tanks out there

By bronson b.

Faber LP tanks are the only way to go for steel tanks

 

Faber LP85 Cylinders

By Chris E.

from Clarksville, TN, US

These cylinders are awesome! The buoyancy characteristics are fantastic. They arrived much faster than I expected and I was completely satisfied with my purchase. Wish they came in white, but that's not enough of an issue to complain about. Highly recommended.

Monster Air Tank!!

By John L.

This tank is a monster - heavy but holds a ton of air. My gills are not quite as developed as others so I've enjoyed having the extra air to improve my bottom time.

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Robert H  We switched from Al 80's to Steel 95's. Great increase in air/gas and the buoyancy characteristics of steel can't be beat. My wife was able to remove 10 lbs. of lead while wearing a 5mm full wetsuit.
William S  The low pressure 95 steel tank gives excellent volume and is not boyant when Empty or at 500 pounds. If you look at the capacity of air with a 10% over fill it rivals most high pressure tanks.
PETER H  Best prices anywhere plus free shipping!
DIXON S  The steel LP 85 is a fantastic all-around tank. Its buoyancy characteristics make it ideal for both sidemount and doubles configurations. Slap on a set of modular long neck valves and you're setup for both!
TERRANCE K  Quality is the name of the game for me! The price was also very good! Terry Kennedy
Shopper  does the new tanks have the + sign so dive shops will refill the 10%?
LANNY P  Yes, the manufacturer stamps the + in every tank. I happily fill mine that extra 10%.
Randall K  My first painted vs. tank and I'm not real excited. Less than 20 dives and I have a .5mm chip in the paint that is now showing rust, likely from a rock. Anyone with advice on coating repair so the damage doesn't propagate?
Frank L  You would need to paint over it with Rustoleum Stop Rust paint, that works well. Most likely will have to reapply every year.
