The Faber Blue Steel Scuba Tanks are manufactured in Italy by Faber. All Blue Steel cylinders are manufactured to the highest standards in the diving industry. Each Blue Steel tank is drawn from high quality Chromium Molybdenum steel, then thoroughly cleaned using a proprietary Phosphatized process. The entire tank is triple Zinc protected, then finished with an internal epoxy coating and a durable Polyurethane external coating. Every Blue Steel scuba tank we carry is Nitrox ready. All of our Blue Steel tanks come equipped with a Faber conversion valve (200 BAR DIN/Yoke insert).

Tanks are shipped empty, plugged and valve packaged individually.  VIP sticker included.  Some dive shops may not accept an empty cylinder with fresh VIP to fill and may require a new VIP to be performed.  Please check with local dive shop prior to purchase so you know what to expect.

Hot Dip Galvanized

The most durable, corrosion-free exterior finish possible. The process involves submerging
the cylinder into molten zinc. The zinc metallurgically bonds to the steel.
