XS Scuba named exclusive distributor for Luxfer cylinders in North America
As part of a wide-ranging operational restructuring over the past several months, Luxfer moved all aluminum cylinder manufacturing in the U.S. to its factory in Graham, North Carolina. In the process, Luxfer decided to discontinue making scuba cylinders.
But thanks to demand from the diving public, Luxfer has reconsidered and decided to offer its most popular scuba models again.
XS Scuba (Santa Ana, California) has been appointed the exclusive distributor for Luxfer scuba cylinders in North America. Luxfer cylinders are now available from XS Scuba in the following sizes and finishes:
- LAL80NF Standard Aluminum 80 with Natural Finish (no paint)
- LAL80BNC Standard Aluminum 80 with Brushed Finish (no paint)
- LAL40BNC Standard Aluminum 40 with Brushed Finish (no paint)
- LALW106 Composite Hoop Wrapped 106 with White Finish
Original Luxfer tooling is being used in the manufacturing process to maintain the same specifications, buoyancy and weight distribution. As always, cylinders are being made from Luxfer’s proprietary L6X® 6061-T6 aluminum alloy, which has an unsurpassed record for safety and dependability. Luxfer cylinders have long been the preferred choice by military, commercial and technical divers worldwide.
NEW LUXFER CYLINDERS ARE IN STOCK AND SHIPPING NOW FROM XS SCUBA.
