The XS Scuba Metal Impact Aluminum SCUBA tanks are durable, reliable, and visually appealing. The tank is manufactured from the industry standard lightweight, high-strength aluminum 6061-T6 alloy.
The Neutrally Buoyant 80 cubic foot has an ample air capacity and better buoyancy characteristics in comparison to a standard 80 cylinder. The 80 cubic foot bottle has a 3300 psi (228 bar) service pressure rating, a capacity of 76.2 cu. ft. (10 liters), is negative 4.1 lbs. (1.9 kg) when full and is positive 0.8 lbs. (0.4 kg) at 500 psi (35 bars). Cylinder weighs 33.4 lbs. (15.2 kg) when empty, and measures (Dia. x L) 7.25" x 25.4" (184mm x 645mm).
Aluminum cylinders unlike steel cylinders don't rust, they oxidize. The oxidization of aluminum forms a protective coat that hinders the continuation of corrosion making aluminum cylinders less likely to be condemned due to excessive corrosion. When shipped the tanks valves will be removed and the tank will require re-inspection before being filled.
