The Need for Mini Scuba Tanks Solved by SMACO

SMACO - Mini Scuba Tanks

Mini scuba tanks are very popular for recreational diving, yacht maintenance, lobstering, treasure hunting, fossil hunting, etc.

SMACO, one of the top suppliers of small gas cylinders, currently offers mini scuba tanks in 4 different sizes of 0.5L/0.7L/1L and 2L.

While mini scuba tanks are not intended to replace full-sized scuba tanks, they do have a place in recreational diving as well as certain underwater activities such as those highlighted below.

Mini Scuba Tanks are ideal for:

  • When you need to dive underwater for a few minutes.
  • Great for boaters that need to unanchor or inspect a hull.
  • Enhancing the snorkeling experiences.
  • A backup air supply for experienced divers.

Most importantly for us, SMACO mini scuba tanks can serve as a backup air supply for divers. Mini tanks provide the added safety of additional oxygen with minimal added weight to your current scuba a setup.
