A BTS 1 Litre Steel Suit Inflation is perfect for carrying a seperate source of air or argon for suit inflation when using trixmix.
A BTS 1 Litre Steel Suit inflation cylinder is an excellent way of carrying an addition source of suit inflation gas whether it be air, weak nitrox or argon. Using helium based breathing gasses such as trimix and heliox to inflate your drysuit will make you become colder quicker due to the poor thermal properties of helium. The BTS 1 Litre 200 bar steel cylinder is the perfect size for ocean diving even down to depths of around 80m as it carries a sufficient amount of gas for a single descent, is very compact and also allows around 1kg of weight to be removed from a divers weight belt. The BTS 1 litre steel suit inflation cylinder comes complete with an inline valve that does not protruded like a typical cylinder valve.

BTS 1 Litre Steel Suit Inflation Cylinder Features:
Weight: 5.0 kg
It is what it is - a 1litre steel cylinder painted white with a vertical valve. It is not bulky and has sufficient volume for dives to 80-100m, unless the suit is is used as the primary buoyancy control or the dive has a saw tooth profile. In which case you may need a larger capacity. My suit is inflated to being just comfortable and any additional lift is provided by the wing.
Unfortunately the cylinder cannot be purchased without a valve. This option would reduce the price as the valve is not always wanted.
