Faber 300 bar Steel Cylinder Range and Specifications

Faber Cylinders
Call for Price

It's Steel, it must be Faber

The Scuba Doctor has available the full range of Italian made 300 bar Faber Steel Cylinders, i.e. the 12, 7, 5 and 3-litre sizes. We typically have Faber 12 litre, 300 bar steel tanks in stock on the shop floor and order in anything else.

All 300 bar Faber Steel Cylinders are supplied oxygen clean direct from the factory, making them suitable for O2 service.

Cylinder Valves:

As standard we supply the Italian made San-o-Sub High-Pressure DIN, cross-flow valve with 300 bar Faber cylinders. The valve has the longer 300 bar, female DIN connection with 7 threads to connect your first stage DIN, scuba regulator. However, you can also order your cylinder unvalved.

Valve Oxygen Cleaning:

If you are planning to use the cylinder with Enriched Air Nitrox (Nitrox) mixes up to 100% oxygen, it's essential for the safety of the cylinder user and the person filling the cylinder that the valve is oxygen cleaned and prepared with special o-rings, seats, and grease designed for exposure to pure oxygen. The cylinder should then be banded with the familiar yellow and green Nitrox band/wrap/sticker, and an Oxygen Clean 'In Test' inspection sticker applied. The Scuba Doctor can do all of this for you as an add-on service.

Cylinder Boot

Most Faber 300 bar steel cylinders from The Scuba Doctor are supplied with a self-draining flexible PVC cylinder boot to fit the round-bottomed Faber tanks already installed. This protects the bottom of your cylinder and provides a streamlined profile for tank racks or double tanks.
