Aluminum Scuba Tanks
As a critical aluminum cylinder supplier, DSW has offered high-quality Aluminum SCUBA cylinders and SCUBA Tanks since 2003.
Aluminum dive tanks are typically constructed through “backward extrusion.”
This process entails driving a metal rod into an aluminum alloy lump in a cylindrical mold and driving forward until a cylindrical shape emerges from the mold.
Aluminium is a softer material requiring thicker walls to contain pressurized gas.

What Is a Scuba diving cylinder?
Diving cylinders or diving gas cylinders are containers used for transporting high-pressure gas used for diving operations, such as breathing gas for use with scuba sets;
in this instance, the container may also be known as a “scuba cylinder,” “scuba tank,” or diving tank.
Pressure-Scuba Diving Tank
The most common service pressures in modern SCUBA tanks are 2640 psi, 3000 psi, 3300 psi, 3442 psi, and 3500 psi.
The 2640 psi low-pressure steel tanks are preferred by Nitrox and technical divers who expect to blend their gases using the partial-pressure method.
Most aluminum SCUBA tanks are rated for 3000 psi.
When choosing between steel and aluminum scuba tanks, it’s crucial to consider dry weight and size, as these can affect your buoyancy and overall comfort.
In scuba diving, dry weight refers to how much a tank weighs on land—and you’re going to want to consider if you plan on lugging your tank around when you’re not in water.
Steel is more robust and more durable than aluminum, which is why tanks made with the latter usually have thicker walls to compensate for the reduced tensile strength.
