Production Status of Worthington Steel Scuba Cylinders

In January 2014, Worthington ceased production of steel scuba cylinders, meaning there is no longer any manufacturer of hot-dip galvanized steel scuba cylinders qualified to DOT & TC specifications for the North American market. According to Worthington their Tilbury plant, which primarily produced steel cylinders for the natural gas market, could no longer operate cost effectively in the face of competition from China. Dive Gear Express now offers the Faber HP-Series for those divers seeking galvanized steel scuba cylinders.

Pro DIN/K Valve Worthington X-Series SCUBA Cylinders are manufactured using deep-drawn chrome molybdenum steel resulting in a light weight cylinder with excellent buoyancy characteristics. Dive Gear Express ships your Nitrox Ready cylinder with the valve installed (domestic ground US only). Unless you select no valve, the valve included in our price is a very high quality Thermo Pro DIN/K valve suitable for use with both DIN or Yoke regulator fittings. The cylinders ordered with valves have a current month Nitrox Ready decal.

SCUBA Tanks must be hydrostatically tested every five years (60 months). The larger primary steel cylinders typically have a factory hydro date between 3 and 12 months old, but not more than 18 months old. X7-80's and X7-65's may have a factory hydro date up to 24 months old as these are manufactured less frequently.

Warning
WARNING
According to our suppliers, their Nitrox Ready and Oxygen Service products are compatible with oxygen and factory cleaned for use with compressed gases in excess of 23.5% oxygen. Nonetheless, the 'clean state' of this equipment applies only prior to initial use. Thereafter, periodic inspection and cleaning are a necessity. You must meticulously follow the recommendations of the US Department of Transportation (DOT), Compressed Gas Association (CGA), and other federal/state/local agencies, plus your dive training agency for equipment maintenance, handling, storage, labeling, filling, transport and use of compressed gases. Oxygen-related fires and explosions can result in serious injury or death. Ultimately, you must make the final decision to assume all risks associated with the use of any compressed gases, including those in excess of 23.5% oxygen.
