Hello Hayden, Thank you for your inquiry! Yes, the Sherwood 80 Cubic Foot/3000psi Aluminum Scuba Tank is an excellent 6061-T6 alloy which never requires an eddy-current inspection with devices such as Visual Plus, Visual Eddy or equivalent machines with an impeccable record for safety and dependability. When purchasing your cylinder, be sure to include a tank boot, a valve protector and a tank carrier. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-200/043077-042005/Sherwood-80-Cubic-Foot-Aluminum-Tank.html If you have any questions or wish to place an order, please call us at 1-800-247-2822 or 949-221-9300.
how many minutes of air dose the tank hold
Hello Trace, Thank you for your inquiry! Excellent question… “How many minutes of air does this tank hold”, is a question that cannot readily be answered due to too many variables; Your depth, the dive activity, the diver’s conditioning, ect. You can calculate your SCR (Surface Consumption Rate), with the NAUI Scuba Dive Calculator Surface Air Consumption Wheel: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-120/058048/NAUI-Scuba-Dive-Calculator-Surface-Air-Consumption.html If you have other questions, need help or would like to place an order, please contact SCUBA.com by calling 800-247-2822 <> 949-221-9300 or e-mail us at: email@example.com
I have a Sherwood 80 tank which I think its from the year 97, is it safe for me to use?
Hello Daniel, as long as it is current in both the VIP (which is a sticker) and Hydro date (which is stamped into the neck of the tank) it is ok to get filled. If either of these date are expired that you will need to get your tank serviced. If you have any worries then I would suggest taking it to your local scuba shop and have them take a look at your tank. If you have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822
I have heard that aluminum is not healthy for us. Have you heard any pros/cons along this line with aluminum vs steel?
Is the a way to safely unstick a valve on a scuba tank. The knob is not stuck but I think the valve is. The tank is full but no air is coming through.
It the 25.9" length with or without the included K-valve. Also, Im using this in a pneumatic scenario and was wondering if anyone knew a lighter tank that is still as stable?
Hello Ben, if you are looking for smaller tank with more air and a higher pressure take a look at the: XS Scuba 80 Cubic Foot High Pressure Steel Scuba Tank web link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-131/043250/XS-Scuba-80-Cubic-Foot-High-Pressure-Steel-Scuba-Tank.html.

I am looking for an aluminium tank whose diving depth capacity is 40m.
Cylinders are not typically rated in diving depth capacity. Technically speaking, a 6 cubic foot tank will get you to 100 ft. It's not enough air to get back or do anything once you get there, but it's enough air to get there. The average scuba tanks used for divers at all the recreational depths is the Aluminum 80 cubic foot tank.
Im brand new to diving can you recommend the best tank and all the accessories to have starting from scratch please it would help so much
Hello Kyle, if you have all of the other equipment that connects to this tank then the small accessories you would need: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-225/042274/Sherwood-Scuba-Valve-Protector.html to keep debrie out of the valve when not in use. There are other things you can get for a tank but nothing that would stop you from using it if you have the 1st stage, 2nd stage, Gauge, Octo and BCD.
Hello, I am brand new to diving and I am wondering where you stand on the steel vs aluminum tank debate? I have heard that aluminum is bad because you will surface to fast but that it holds up better. I have heard that steel is the way to go because it keeps you down but it doesnt last nearly as long. What do you think? Thanks for the help!
Good morning, the AL 80 is the most common tank used world wide mainly because its cheap. True they are slightly neutrally buoyant when the tank gets low and does cause new divers to have difficulty staying neutral at their safety stop. High pressure steel tanks don't do this. They can both hold the same amount of air and if cared for (visual inspection every year, and hydro tested every 5 years) will last just as long.
How does the xs scuba compare to the Sherwood cylinders? They are both made by Catalina. Do you have any cylinders made by worthington.
How many high pressure and low pressure ports does this tank have. I want to run a primary console computer as well as a backup wrist computer with a pressure transmitter so I will need an extra high pressure port to connect the transmitter to. Thanks
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.
