The Adreno team have worked hard to bring this quality tank manufactured in France to the shop floor. In this video, Adreno’s Zoe Pocklington takes us through the details of the 12L stainless steel 230 bar compact tank.
Adreno opted for the steel tank option over that of aluminium for a few reasons. Firstly, steel tanks can handle a higher pressure in a smaller size and with the goal of producing a compact tank steel made sense.
It also has advantages in that steel tanks won’t become buoyant as they are emptied. A common issue with aluminium tanks is that as they reach the 50-70 bar mark they dramatically change buoyancy and want to float so you need to compensate for this with additional weights or your hips will begin to rise above your chest as you swim.
The compact shape of this tank is fantastic for shorter divers or someone looking for a tank that takes up less room in the car. It also has the benefit of having an improved centre of gravity as it sits more compact on your back as opposed to longer tanks which can cause some instability. All Adreno tanks come with a valve and a boot ready to go.
We recommend with these tanks that you have them tested for any rust or damage after around 12 months. Take a look at Adreno's online range of scuba tanks at http://www.scubadiving.com.au/scuba-diving-gear/tanks.
