The Catalina 19.3 has the external dimensions of an AL20 but the cylinder base is a slightly thicker wall. As compared to the AL20, the additional aluminum in the base reduces the capacity and changes the buoyancy specifications making it 0.75 pounds less buoyant. The Catalina 19.3 is popular for use with the Dive Rite O2ptima CCR and with "rapid entry" emergency diving systems. This rare cylinder is infrequently manufactured in small quantities and is often out-of-stock for long periods.

Tek Tip Warning Image 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.
