Rating: Steel 50 Deco tank.
Reviewer: Roy B. Moore
As a tech diver I use several diffrent deco gas bottles. Until now I have always used aluminum tanks for deco. I bought this 50 cf steel tank for my most used deco gas. I bought the 50 cf tank to have more reserve gas in case I had a problem and needed longer deco time. Usually a 40 cf aluminum would have be the norm. I have used the 50 steel and 40 aluminum together for long dives. This steel tank has many advances that I didnt have with the 40 aluminum. I use less weight, and when almost empty it is still negative. Plus I have 10 cf more gas. When I buy another deco tank, it will be this bottle again.

Faber Cylinders for Scuba Diving

Faber Cylinders are appreciated worldwide by those scuba divers who choose steel tanks for their aqua-lung.
Faber Cylinders for scuba diving are manufactured from steel plates to ensure light tanks with the right buoyancy.
If you are already using steel tanks when diving you don't need to be convinced about the advantages of steel. Just make sure that next time you purchase a tank the FABER stamp is on it (go to How to recognize Faber Cylinders).


1. The material (steel plate) is carefully selected depending on its eventual use conditions, after verifying the chemical, physical, mechanical characteristics.

2. The design of Faber cylinders uses not only specified calculation formulae but also linear finite element analysis. The calculated data are then verified experimentally using strain-gauge measurements.

3. The fracture mechanics analysis of the steel allows us to define the maximum permissible defects in the cylinders, in order to enable us:
- to establish the non-destructive tests during production
- to guarantee the product fatigue life
- to demonstrate that a leak precedes the hypothetical burst of the cylinder (LBB)

4. The cylinders' surface protection is considered to be a function of the various environmental conditions of use and of the various corrosion agents.

5. Faber's cylinders are manufactured according to a quality control program certified to ISO 9001 and ISO / TS 16949 (where applicable).
