Is your Tank Rusty? Have ScubaSafe carry out a tank inspection. We will do a visual internal inspection, ultrasonic test & complete a report. You can choose a free air fill or valve service with every satisfactory inspection.
We also carry out tank servicing which comprises;
1. Visual inspection of the interior and external surfaces looking for signs of excess corrosion, pits, gouges etc.
2. Checking the tank boot (if fitted) to ensure that the water drain holes are adequate & not blocked.
3. Checking manufacturer’s specific minimum tank thickness on crown, base and walls.
*At ScubaSafe we also recommend that you take the opportunity to have the valve serviced at the same time, in which case the valve is cleaned and new seals fitted. The tank is then filled and tested for leaks.
* Please note: We will only fill tanks that are 'in test'!
Specialist knowledge, materials and expertise is required for equipment that is to be used with O2 concentrations higher than 50%. See our O2 page for details.
Check out these progressive shots of some of our tank painting. It was a custom job, interesting to do, anyone recognise the design? Other images of some poorly maintained tanks are also available on the Gallery page.
