Faber cylinders made in Italy are the standard for dive tanks. Steel offers significant advantages over aluminium cylinders due to steel's much greater strength. This allows for thinner walls and smaller overall size for the same internal volume. Steel cylinders also have better buoyancy characteristics as aluminium tanks become positively buoyant as they empty and you must wear extra lead to counteract this whereas steel cylinders remain negatively buoyant throughout your dive. This package includes a 5l cylinder and Sherwood Pro Valve. The Pro Valve easily switches from yoke to DIN simply by removing a threaded insert. Please note: The 5L cylinder does not come with a tank boot so will not stand upright by itself.
*Please Note: By law, cylinders have to be couriered empty with the valve removed - the valve then needs to be put on by a certified technician. Extra shipping charges apply if couriered - please contact us for more details.
- Negatively buoyant - meaning you can use less lead
- Higher volume than equivalent sized aluminium cylinders
- Comes with a reliable Sherwood Pro Scuba Valve that can be used as both DIN and Yoke
