Regulator Service 

regulator_dissassembledDuring the initial break down of the regulator, all parts are inspected for cracks, undue wear and fatigue. After complete disassembly all parts are introduced to the ultrasonic cleaner for removal of all solvents, debris and salt. Once all parts are thoroughly cleaned and rinsed, then the reassembly begins. Using only factory authorized parts and oxygen compatible grease (christolube) all parts are assembled to manufacturer’s recommendations. All o-rings included with the service kit are replaced and anything that does not meet standards will need approval from the owner before replacement. The first stage regulator is adjusted and set within manufacturer’s standards and the second stage and octo are adjusted to operate precisely with the first stage.

Note: If your regulator has a manufacturer's warranty that covers annual service parts and you have fulfilled all of the terms of your warranty then you are not charged for annual service kits.  You may still be charged for parts that are not covered under a manufacturer's warranty.

Visual Inspection

Scubaland air fillsAll cylinders are inspected by certified inspectors, properly trained in cylinder inspections to PSI, OSHA, and CGA Standards. The cylinder is inspected for current and appropriate markings then the tank is completely drained, all accessories, stickers and the valve will be removed.

The external inspection will identify heat damage, re-painting, odors, bows, bulges and line corrosion forming around tank boots. The internal inspection will identify cracks, pitting, surface rust and oxidation. The threads of the cylinder are inspected for cracks, missing and\or damaged threads.

The valve is then inspected for the correct burst disk, the o-ring is replaced and the dip tube is verified to be present and secure. The threads are greased with DOW Corning 111 to prevent electrolysis. If the cylinder has meet all standards with in the PSI, OSHA and CGA Standards, the cylinder is reassembled and issued a current visual inspection sticker, good for one year with in the same month.

Hydrostatic Inspection (includes visual inspection and fill)

Hydrostatic inspections must be conducted once every 5 years. The cylinder is sent to a local facility for testing to DOT standards.  The local facilitiy is governed by the Department of Transportation and is current on standards and specifications.  Hydrostatic inspections require a minimum of 1 week to complete.  All Luxfer cylinders with the special alloy designation are Eddy current tested by the local testing facility during the hydrostatic test.

Any cylinder that does not pass hydrostatic testing will be rendered unusable before being returned according to DOT requirements.

After the cylinder has successfully completed a hydrostatic test, it is visually inspected and filled.

Oxygen Clean Service

Cylinders are visually inspected, completely disassembled, and cleaned using a special O2 compatible cleaner from Global Manufacturing. All parts are cleaned in the ultrasonic cleaner, rinsed and reassembled using ONLY CHRISTOLUBE lubricant. All stickers and markings are checked to PSI, OSHA and CGA Standards. After completion the first fill is done on site.
