  • Excellent durability and corrosion protection
  • Worry free unpainted hot-dipped galvanized finish
  • Phosphatized corrosion resistant internal surface
  • Includes Nitrox Ready tank and valve
  • 3442 PSI service pressure

The Faber HP-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 3442 PSI service pressure cylinders are imported for the North American market in an unpainted hot-dipped galvanized finish. 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 that in no way impacts their durability or function. 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 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. The Dive Gear Express price also includes a very high quality self draining tank boot.

Our "DGX Complete" Setup Includes:

  • Nitrox Ready Faber HP Hot Dip Galvanized Cylinder w/Boot
  • 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.

  4. Fair deal, but shipping is too high

    By Duke D.

    on 30 December, 2018

    I’m happy with the cylinder and customer service, I just wish I’d noticed that tanks don’t qualify for free shipping. As a result I paid about $20 more than my LDS. Not too big a deal.

  5. Price and service can’t be beat

    By James C.

    on 23 September, 2018

    Searched high and low, these were the best pricing I could find, these come with high quality thermo valves. Ordered on Sunday afternoon, at my door in Michigan by Thursday, even though they were back-ordered.

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
  • 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, and NOT marked appropriately for use in Australia and New Zealand.
