Scuba Cylinders require to be visually inspected annually. Our inspectors ensure tanks are thoroughly checked for corrosion/cracks/bulges etc. We offer full reports for all inspections and even offer calibrated eddy current.
Is your valve functioning correctly? Our staff can inspect and repair valves.
Cylinder Hydro Testings
Hydrostatic inspections are required every five years. The test for each tank is on file at the DOT, and the testing station must contact them to obtain the correct test specification. A common hydrostatic test is to pressurize the scuba tank to 5/3 of its working pressure and to measure the flexing of the tank walls. Five-thirds of a 3,000 psi working pressure means that the tank will be pressurized to 5,000 psi. This is done by replacing the valve with a special hydraulic testing connection and filling the scuba tank with water under pressure – NOT air! Air would be too explosive if the tank were to let go during the test, as it sometimes will. Because water cannot be compressed, the tank cannot explode if it fails. After the initial test, the results are stamped into the body of the scuba tank, along with the date (year and month) it passed.
Oxygen Cleaning Service
Get your cylinder and valve O2 cleaned, service and repairs. The proper preparation of a scuba cylinder and valve for use with Enriched Air Nitrox (Nitrox) is essential for the safety of the tank user and the person filling the cylinder.
