The Faber FX-Series SCUBA Cylinders are manufactured using deep-drawn chrome molybdenum steel resulting in a light weight cylinder with excellent buoyancy characteristics. Manufactured in Italy by Faber Industrie S.p.A., this 3442 PSI service pressure cylinder is imported for the North American market in an environmentally friendly hot-zinc spray coating that is protected with epoxy paint. The inside of Faber cylinders also feature a unique phosphatized hardening treatment to create a corrosion resistant internal surface. With a diameter of {5.51 in | 13.9 cm} and a height of {25.2 in | 64 cm} this is a compact steel cylinder with a wide variety of uses.

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 DGX Premium Pro Valve in your choice of design, plus a DIN/K insert to make the valve suitable for use with both DIN or Yoke regulator fittings. The cylinders ordered with valves have a current month Nitrox Ready decal.

Our "DGX Complete" Setup Includes:

  • Nitrox Ready Faber FX Hot Spray Galvanized Steel Cylinder
  • DGX Premium Pro Valve in choice of design and configuration
  • DIN/K Insert for use with Yoke regulator fittings
  • Spare O-ring for valve face
  • Valve Protector Cap
  • Current Nitrox Ready Decal †

† Our shop evidence of inspection 3" X 6" dated decal (aka "VIP sticker") states "this cylinder and valve are suitable for service with compressed gases containing greater than 23.5% oxygen." That means the cylinder and valve, prior to initial use, are oxygen clean and oxygen compatible. If you plan to use this cylinder with gases containing more than 40% oxygen then the upgrade to our DGX Premium Oxygen Valve is suggested. If you select the No Valve / No VIP option, then the VIP decal is NOT included.

    The tank arrived in Canada with a plastic plug in place, a Thermo valve sealed in a plastic bag, and a pre-punched visual inspection sticker ready to apply or leave off if you prefer.

    Confident in the factory cleanliness I use this tank for pure oxygen on my rebreather without further cleaning and have survived several fillsso far.

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.
