Inspection / Testing

Inspection, testing is carried out in an approved IDEST Test centre - IDEST 7V, in accordance with EN1968 for steel cylinders and EN1808 for aluminium cylinders. Recent changes in the rules and regulations regarding the inspection of diving cylinders require the testing station to destroy any cylinders that fail the test.

Hydrostatic Testing

Dive cylinders are required to be hydrostatically tested every five years unless something happens to the tank that would warrant testing sooner. This would be something that can affect the structural integrity of the tank, such as being dropped from a height, exposure to heat, or painting with inappropriate substances. 

Visual Inspection

Under industry standards, dive cylinders are required to be visually inspected every 2 ½ years from the date of the hydrostatic test.   This involves checking the cylinder for signs of corrosion and damage, inside and out, and assessing the threads and seals. Cylinders are then marked with a sticker showing the date of the inspection.

O2 Clean and Service

The proper preparation of a scuba cylinder for use with Enriched Air Nitrox (Nitrox) is essential for the safety of the cylinder user and the person filling the cylinder.  All cylinders requiring O2 cleaned are O2 cleaned using Biox '02' cleaning fluid which is used by the Ministry of Defence, Military Establishments, Off Shore and Diving schools Worldwide for the cleaning of their oxygenated breathing systems and hyperbaric equipment.
