Dive cylinders, dive tanks & dive bottles... no matter what you call them, they are an essential part of SCUBA diving! 

Faber steel cylinders are made in Italy, and are the most popular steel dive tanks in the world! This 12L steel cylinder has a fill pressure of 232 bar, and comes complete with a 'convertible' valve so that you can use DIN or Yoke fitting regulators and also includes tank boot. 

Steel cylinders offer multiple advantages over aluminium. Steel tanks have less of a buoyancy shift, meaning that they start and finish the dive negatively buoyant allowing you to wear less lead than the comparable aluminium cylinder.

A common mistake is thinking steel cylinders are heavier than aluminium ones, but they are lighter than the same sized aluminium cylinder because they can use thinner metal as steel is much stronger.
