The Faber Cylinder are manufactured with extremely high quality steel made to international standards. Faber cylinders display a unique combination of size, weight and buoyancy. This tank is 232 bar, with 3 litre (25 cubic foot) capacity and 11mm (3.9 inch) diameter.

This tank is probably the second most common steel cylinder used on a closed circuit rebreather (CCR), also known as the Faber FX23. This tank is compatible with the Hollis Prism 2 Rebreather.

Tank is supplied with DIN/Yoke convertible valve as standard. They are strong and reliable, made from top quality materials. The inner air passages were carefully studied in the design so as to guarantee top performance. The valve design ensures an excellent grip, facilitating opening and closing of the tank. The valve regulator connection incorporates a threaded insert, which means it can equally be used for both Yoke or DIN connection.

 


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 be 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 Frog Dive technicians can do all of that for you as an add-on service.
