7.25" Tank Bands


Dive Rite Tank Bands are tungsten inert gas welded (TIG) and have beveled edges that minimize scratching of painted tanks during assembly. They are constructed of 18-gauge, 304 stainless steel, with a #3 polished finish and 11-gauge, 304 stainless steel structural plates. 304 stainless steel is a high grade, low carbon alloy that resists corrosion, even in saltwater. Every band is precision sheared and punched and goes through a stringent quality control test during each step of the manufacturing process. Our bands also include an appropriately sized stainless steel all-thread bolt kit which is also made of 304 stainless steel. Made in the U.S.A.

  • Beveled, smooth edges eliminate scratching
  • 7.25-inch Tank Bands are 2.5-inches (6.4 cm) in width
  • Fits 7.25-inch (184 mm) diameter bands. Fits US-standard AL80, HP80, HP100, HP120 and all E7/X7 and European-standard tanks with 8.5 inch (216 mm) center to center spacing.
  • 4.7 lbs (2.13 kg)
  • Made in USA

In the 1980's there was a variety of tank manifolds on the market, each with its own center-to-center spacing. Specialty tank band manufacturers entered the market and began offering bands for each style of manifold. Since the mid-1990's manifolds have been standardized allowing tank bands to become fairly uniform in design. Specialized tank bands are no longer necessary unless a diver is using an older manifold or one that lacks double barrel o-ring seals.

  • Wing nuts and washers are easy to lose. Keeping a couple spares of each in a save-a-dive kit could save the day.

200 Bar Manifold
All Dive Rite manifolds use two barrel o-rings to seal either end of the cross-bar, which provides better shock absorption and redundancy compared to the old-style metal-to-metal seal manifolds
