how long could i stay under water with the sherwood 6 cubic foot alumanun tank
This depends on several factors. The average new diver breathes around 1cu ft per min. So at the surface this tank would last around 6 min. But as you go underwater the air will not last as long. At a depth of 33 ft this time would be cut in half. At a depth of 66ft the surface time would be 1/3, so how fast you breathe and the depth will affect how long the air will last.
I understand I will not get a full fill. I just dont know how to figure the number of "fills" i would get from this tank. thats my question.
I am looking to buy a scuba tank to for use in paintball...I have a fill station rated to 5000 psi. my question is how many times can I fill my 48ci 3000 psi bottle on this 6cf aluminum tank.
hi im just getting into scuba diving so im just woundering do you need to get certified to buy/use this size tank I was just thing about using it in a pool with a 8 foot depth I know it sounds stupid but I tried scuba diving once in florida in a pool and I loved but for now I want to just do it in the pool until I can do the ocean training but would be ok to use this in the pool without certification? thank you for your time
TANKS & VALVES: Sherwood Valve
The most used valve in diving. The critical link between your regulator and tank, our patented Sherwood valve was designed specifically to handle today’s high-performance regulators.
Aluminum tanks are cost efficient, long lasting, and readily available, which is why they are easily the most common scuba diving tanks in the world. Lighter than steel tanks, aluminum dive tanks are easier to transport and swim with, giving your shoulders and arms a break on long treks.
Because of their light weight, some aluminum tanks will begin to float at the end of a dive, once the oxygen supply is nearly depleted. To combat this, it's common to counter-weight an aluminum dive tank with approximately 4 pounds. However, 'Compact Neutral' aluminum tanks are made with thicker walls, which increase the weight and help to counteract the positive buoyancy problems at the end of a long dive.
