DGX Custom - Doubles Package - Faber LP-50

On Order

Prices for these cylinders do not include free shipping.

The only 5.5-inch bands available for LP50's offer excellent material quality and strong construction, but the cosmetic appearance of the welds is not as good as our other tank bands. Your complete satisfaction is our goal, so please consider carefully before purchase.

DGX Custom - Doubles Package - Faber LP-50

Faber LP-50 Triple Protected Galvanized Doubles Package
Faber LP-50 Triple Protected Galvanized Doubles Package
  • Perfect as a low profile set of doubles (or mini-sidemount)
  • Triple protection painted finish for longevity and good looks
  • Includes manifold, bands and bolts, left and right manifold port plugs
  • Internal phosphatized treatment for corrosion resistance

LP-50's are perfect as a low profile set of doubles but are preferred for sidemounting in very tight spaces and in the open water. A complete Double Cylinder Package from Dive Gear Express consists of: two cylinders, premium quality manifold with isolator, premium quality bands and bolts, left and right manifold port plugs. The cylinders each have a current month Nitrox Ready decal and depending on shipping restrictions normally arrive with modular valves and plugs installed, ready-to-use as independent single cylinders and ready-to-assemble as doubles.

  • TWO Nitrox-Ready Faber LP-50 Cylinders
  • Premium Quality Manifold with Isolator
  • Blue Steel 5.5-inch Bands and Bolts
  • Left and Right Manifold Port Plugs (not shown)

Manufactured in Italy by Faber Industrie S.p.A., these 2640 PSI service pressure cylinders are imported for the North American market in a durable and environmentally friendly hot-zinc spray coating that is protected with epoxy paint and further protected with a polyurethane top coat to offer a triple protection finish. The inside of Faber cylinders also feature a unique phosphatized hardening treatment to create a corrosion resistant internal surface.

If you switch between backmount doubles and twin sidemount cylinders with left and right valves, then add Dive Rite Sidemount Travel straps to easily switch to a pair of sidemount singles.

How to Select a SCUBA Tank

Our factual but easy-to-read article helps you make this big decision by giving you information on:

  • Aluminum tanks versus steel tanks
  • Low-pressure tanks versus high-pressure tanks
  • Tank paints, coatings, and finishes
  • Tank dimensions and capacity recommendations

Click Here to read How to Select a SCUBA Tank.

SCUBA Tanks must be hydrostatically tested every five years (60 months). We always ship Faber cylinders with a current hydro test date. Due to manufacturing and import cycles, the popular sizes of Faber cylinders typically have a factory hydro date less than 12 months old. However less popular sizes of Faber cylinders may have a factory hydro date up to 24 months old as these are manufactured and imported less frequently.

Our cylinders and valves are Imperial 3/4 NPS neck threads, NOT Metric M25 neck threads, and the valves have overpressure relief devices. The cylinders have US DOT and Canadian CTC markings suitable for use only in North America. Our cylinders and valves are NOT CE approved and NOT suitable for use in the European Union.
