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 Luxfer 40 Cubic Foot (5.7 liters) Aluminum Tank is a small compact cylinder that is great for use as a stage bottle for decompression and safety stop use. It is also commonly used by technical divers as a bailout bottle. The cylinder is a 3000 psi (200 bars) service pressure tank measuring 24.8" (63 cm) tall, with a 5.3" (13.46 cm) diameter. The cylinder weighs 14.9 lbs. (6.76 kg) is negative 0.7 lbs. (317.5 g) when full in salt water and is positively buoyant 2.4 lbs. (1.1 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 (3000 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.

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.

Nice tank, regrets about valve & color

I like the tank itself and that everything shipped O2 clean since I plan to use it with partial pressure blending Nitrox. However: 1) The valve doesn't fit my hand well when moving it around on the surface. Next time I will look for a Thermo or similar valve shape. 2) I also would choose a different color so standard black stage bottle rigging and retainers show up better against the finish.

Not exactly what I was thinking

By RICHARD Z.

I bought this tank thinking of replacing my old pony but I didn't realize my old tank was a 30cu which works great. I didn't realize this tank was so much larger and not really suited for a pony. Alas it is vised and filed so I guess I'll have to spring for a thirty when they come on sale. Recommended as a stage, not as a pony

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Cheryl M  Going to use for a light weight sidemount set. I have the uncommon side valve already. I use both DIN and Yoke regulators interchangably
Shopper  The whole "Nitrox ready" listing on these tanks is misleading. One area of the description says Nitrox Ready to 40% the other area says 23.5%. In my opinion if its only nitrox rated to 23.5% it's REALLY NOT nitrox ready at all. I typically use 28-36% so it's not nitrox ready in my case. Is there something I'm missing?
DAVE V  It has to do with legal definitions used in other compressed gas industries. From a practical point of view, any tank designed for use in SCUBA should be sufficient to use with gas mixtures up to 40% O2, the recreational limit of Nitrox. You might want to check with your LDS that fills Nitrox to see what they are comfortable with.
ROBERT K  I took the tank to my local dive shop and they said it was good to 40%. I had no issue.
JAMES O  I did a VIP and put the valve on.. Filled with nitrox 32 .. I don't know what to tell you..
DOUG M  What brand Pro Valve is supplied with the tank?
BETSY F  Blue Steel
CHRISTOPHER A  I think it was a blue steel. I'm not 100% sure, but it's a decent valve
