SGA’s composite SCBA air tanks are constructed by wrapping an alloy core with carbon fibre to produce an extremely light weight tank, designed for high pressure filling of compressed air. With a service pressure of 300 bar, these SCBA tanks hold up to 50% more air than aluminium tanks with the equivalent water capacity.
Carbon fibre cylinders are the most portable SCBA solution combining a lighter weight tank with a higher service pressure to deliver increased breathing time in proportion to the cylinder weight.
With a design life of 20 years this cylinder will endure a life time of use with minimal maintenance. (Hydro testing is required every 5 years.)
Cylinder liner is coated with aluminium oxide to protect against moisture and corrosion.
Specifications are exclusive of valve.
M18 Thread and a 1.5mm pitch. Certified in accordance with UN-TPED (EN12245). Supplied with Australian Test station inspection certificate.
Our cylinders are manufactured with the industry standard thread type enabling the cylinders to be provided with an extensive range of valves or for our OEM distribution partners to fit their own valve.
