The Faber LP-Series SCUBA Cylinders are manufactured using deep-drawn chrome molybdenum steel resulting in a light weight cylinder with excellent buoyancy characteristics.

Prices for these cylinders do not include free shipping.

Hot-dip galvanizing offers excellent durability and corrosion protection for steel scuba tanks. However, the hot-dipped galvanized finish is "industrial grade", with noticeable cosmetic imperfections. While the cosmetics of hot-dip galvanized scuba cylinders in no way impacts their durability or function, your complete satisfaction is our goal so please consider carefully before purchase.

The Faber LP-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., these 2640 PSI service pressure cylinders are imported for the North American market in an unpainted hot-dipped galvanized finish. The inside of Faber cylinders also feature a unique phosphatized hardening treatment to create a corrosion resistant internal surface.

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 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. The Dive Gear Express price also includes a vinyl tank boot.

Our "DGX Complete" Setup Includes:

  • Nitrox Ready Cylinder
  • Nitrox Ready Thermo Pro DIN/K Valve
  • Spare O-ring for Valve Face
  • Valve Protector Cap
  • Current Nitrox Ready Decal
  • Vinyl Tank Boot

What does "No Valve / No VIP" mean? - If you wish we will sell you a RAW cylinder sent to you with no valve installed and without the visual inspection required for filling the cylinder. We do not suggest this but are willing to oblige if you wish.

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.
