The Blue Steel FX Series Steel cylinder is manufactured in Italy by Faber. Each Blue Steel cylinder is drawn from high quality Chromium Molybdenum steel then thoroughly cleaned using their proprietary Phosphatized process.
The entire cylinder is triple Zinc protected then finished with an internal epoxy coating and a durable Polyurethane external coating. Every FABER FX cylinder we carry is Nitrox ready to 40%. All of our Blue Steel cylinders come equipped with a Faber conversion valve (200 BAR DIN/Yoke insert). Self Draining Tank Boot Included.
Aluminum cylinders, as we breathe the weight of air from them, create positive buoyancy at or near the end of a dive. The steel cylinder with its negative buoyancy throughout the dive allows you to shed the excess lead that is required to keep you properly trimmed while you dive an aluminum cylinder. Faber HP cylinders have a round bottom and come equipped with a cylinder boot.
The Faber cylinders are 3442 psi (237 bar) working pressure cylinders, negatively buoyant from -8.05 lbs. to -9.08 lbs. (-3.65 kg to -4.12 kg) when full and are negatively buoyant from -1.74 lbs. to +1.45 lbs. (-0.8 kg to +0.66 kg) when empty
