Luxfer Aluminum 40 Cylinder, Brushed No-Coat

Nitrox Ready Valve, O2 Valve Upgrade and No Valve / No VIP Options
Nitrox Ready Valve, O2 Valve Upgrade and No Valve / No VIP Options Premium Valve Options Premium O2 Valve Options How We Pack a Cylinder for Shipment
  • Perfect size for stage, bailout and oxygen
  • Cylinders and valves are Imperial 3/4 NPS threads
  • DOT and CTC markings for use only in North America
  • Cylinder and valve are Nitrox Ready
  • Oxygen upgrade available for mixes above 40%

Some experienced divers prefer the trim characteristics of the Luxfer Aluminum 40 for deco, bailout and sidemount applications.

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 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.

    No hassle process...no pimply-faced "shop monkey" trying to up-sell or trying to sell me something that I don't need. I've bought from DGX in the past with total confidence and satisfaction... if I need something down the road, I definitely will be back.

  4. Everything you need, nothing you don't

    By Tyler W.

    on 31 August, 2018

    This isn't the first cylinder I have bought from DGX but like my past purchases, the entire experience was great. The attention to detail in the shipping packaging will have me only making purchases with DGX in the future. I have ordered cylinders from competitors in the past (to save a few dollars) and have ended up with broken or bent valves... not the case with DGX! Like most of the products carried by DGX, their cylinders have everything you need and nothing you don't. If you want to spend more money for fancy coatings that will flake off in a few years, look somewhere else. Not much else to say about it... the cylinder arrived in great shape, with a visual inspection in the month I ordered the cylinder, and the cylinder itself was only a few months old from the factory.

Aluminum Cylinders at Dive Gear Express

Features of All Aluminum SCUBA Tanks
from Dive Gear Express

  • Manufactured in North America
  • 6061 alloy, an aluminum-magnesium-silicon blend
  • Both U.S. DOT-3AL and Canadian TC-3ALM markings
  • 0.750-14 NPS (3/4 NPS) threaded neck opening
  • Cylinder and valve are Nitrox Ready
 

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

Read How to Select a SCUBA Tank.

SCUBA Tanks must be hydrostatically tested every five years (60 months). The larger primary cylinders typically have a factory hydro date between 3 and 9 months old, but not more than 12 months old. Smaller cylinders may have a factory hydro date up to 24 months old as these are manufactured 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.
