Overwhelming public demand has prompted Luxfer Cylinders to reinstate production of its popular scuba cylinders.
Luxfer had opted to discontinue production in the past several months, as part of a wide-ranging operational restructure. The company had moved all aluminium cylinder manufacturing in the US to its factory in Graham, North Carolina.
In the process, Luxfer decided to discontinue its scuba cylinder production - until now. With demand from the diving public proving to be so strong, Luxfer has reconsidered and decided to offer its most popular scuba models again.
Furthermore, XS Scuba (Santa Ana, California) has been appointed the exclusive distributor for Luxfer scuba cylinders in North America.
Original Luxfer tooling is being used in the manufacturing process, to maintain the same specifications, buoyancy and weight distribution, while as always, cylinders are being made from Luxfer’s proprietary L6X® 6061-T6 aluminium alloy - which has an unsurpassed record for safety and dependability.
