Scuba diving

Faber’s Cylinders are appreciated worldwide by scuba divers who choose steel tanks for their aqua-lung apparatus. To give you the lightest (and hence an optimum wall thickness) steel tanks (cylinders) with an ideal buoyancy, our scuba diving cylinders are diligently manufactured using high quality steel plates. If you are already using steel cylinders when diving you don’t need to be convinced about the advantages of steel. Beside the buoyancy attractions, it occupies a far lower volume for the same water capacity allowing you to enjoy greater space and freedom and free from any worries of developing any premature defects such as sustained load cracking (SLC) found in some aluminium alloy cylinders such as those from alloys AA6351, AA6082, which could limit the life of your cylinder.

So do be sure that the next time you purchase a cylinder the FABER stamp is on it (go to How to recognize Faber Cylinders). If you are not using steel cylinders, then do use one and you will soon realise what you have been missing. Faber can offer you the most comprehensive range of cylinders for Scuba Diving.
