Faber 23 Dive Tank review

The construction allows the diver to remove lead weight from their weight belt or integrated weight system of the BCD. Aluminum cylinders, as we breathe the weight of air from them, create positive buoyancy at or near the end of a dive. The steel cylinder with its negative buoyancy throughout the dive allows you to shed the excess lead that is required to keep you properly trimmed while you dive an aluminum cylinder. Faber HP cylinders have a round bottom. The Faber 23 High-Pressure Steel Cylinders is a 3442 psi (237 bars) working pressure cylinder, negatively buoyant -2.64 lbs. (-1.2 kg) when full and is negatively buoyant -0.66 lbs. (-299.4 g) when empty.

If you are not using steel cylinders, try to use one, and you will soon realize what you have been missing. Faber can offer you the most comprehensive range of cylinders for scuba diving. Every year Faber produce and sell around the world 100,000 cylinders for scuba diving. No other manufacturer in the world can match their capabilities and the breadth of their range.
