Small Aluminum Cylinders Size Options
Small Aluminum Cylinders Size Options Valve Type Options Shown on AL30 Premium Valve Options Premium O2 Valve Options How We Pack a Cylinder for Shipment
  • Cylinder and valve are Nitrox Ready
  • Cylinders and valves are Imperial 3/4 NPS threads
  • DOT and CTC markings for use in North America
  • Includes spare O-ring and valve protection cap
  • XS Metal Impact brand cylinders

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.

    Dove with this pony. The tank is just fine, but DiveGearExpress' service is outstanding. Very fast delivery across the ocean! and when there was a small mistake with one of the items in the shipment - they took full responsibility of the mistake, and sent the right item immediately, fast, and at no extra charge. You gained a happy customer.

    As always delivery was fast but the best part was the tank came with a current VIP sticker so no need to take it to a shop for visual inspection.

  5. Perfect

    By Stuart V.

    on 25 October, 2016

    Not much to say about a 6cf AL cylinder. It works perfectly as a drysuit inflator bottle. It came with the valve installed and a VIP sticker in a bag that I could apply or not, as I chose. This plus the DGX drysuit inflator reg gave me everything I needed for my drysuit for $190. Can't beat it! 50 cents worth of bungee cord to mount it on my BP and I am good to go!

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.
