In 1988, Luxfer introduced scuba tanks manufactured from L6X, a proprietary formula of aluminum alloy 6061-T6 developed by Luxfer metallurgists to provide superior corrosion-resistance and dependable performance in the most demanding underwater environments. The manufacturing of Luxfer scuba cylinders has been relocated to the Graham, North Carolina factory. The original tooling is being used to maintain the same specifications, buoyancy and weight distribution. Proprietary L6X 6061-T6 aluminum alloy which has an unsurpassed record for safety and dependability will continue to be used. Luxfer is the preferred choice by military, commercial and technical divers worldwide.
All Luxfer cylinders are nitrox ready up to 23.5% and meet certificated specifications of the US Department of Transportation (DOT) with DOT-3AL specification and Transport Canada Safety and Security (TC) with TC-3ALM specifications. Purchasers should check with other country requirements to know if the cylinders are certified for use in that country. Luxfer Scuba Cylinders with service pressures up to 3000psi are cleaned at the factory for use of oxygen up to 100% oxygen. If the cylinder is used with any gas exceeding 23.5% oxygen it is the responsibility of the use to ensure that this cylinder and all components (valve, regulator, etc) are maintained in a proper state of oxygen cleanliness. Luxfer cylinders that exceed 3000psi should not be used with any gas exceeding 23.5% oxygen.
