Please note that the tank you receive may vary in appearance from the tank shown in the image but will be the correct size with the advertised amount of years remaining.
Recent DOT regulation (SP-16320) changes have led to some amazing developments for airgunners! Life Extended tanks may be used up to an additional 15 years from their born on date. For example, a tank manufactured in the year 1999, would have previously expired in 2014. Now, this tank may be usable until 2029 once Life Extended!
If the cost of a brand new carbon fiber air cylinder has kept you from getting into PCP airguns, a Life Extended cylinder may be the answer! These carbon fiber cylinders are lightweight and capable of storing up to 4500 psi of high pressure air. Potentially providing thousands of shots for your PCP airguns!
Of course, just like brand new carbon fiber SCBA cylinders, they must pass testing every 5 years from the Life Extension date to remain in service (Ex. A tank Life Extended in 2017, wouldn’t require a retest until 2022). This testing can only be done by Digital Wave Corporation for Life Extended tanks and will cost about the same as a standard hydro test plus shipping and handling.
These cylinders come with a brand new 300 BAR DIN valve and fill assembly that ends in a female quick disconnect fitting, ready to fill your PCP airguns. The valve and fill assembly feature stainless steel fittings, a 24 in. microbore hose and a rubberized hand wheel for controlled filling. The integrated pressure gauge lets you know when you're reaching your full charge, and the bleed valve is conveniently located on the valve.

Is PA saying this tank will go the additional years you're purchasing and does anyone know the cost of sending to Digital Wave every five (5) years for inspection ? What does PA do if it fails early ? Is this a roll of the dice ?
When they life extend the tank, it can be good for up to an additional 15 years from the born on date (so 30 years total). There is no guarantee that it will pass recert in 5 years time, but then again, there is not that guarantee with a brand new tank either. It's all in how it's treated. The cost of the recert testing every 5 years will be about the same as a hydro test ($30-40). The tank carries a 1 year warranty, just like the brand new tanks that PA sells. Not a roll of the dice at all, the department of transportation wouldn't have approved the Life Extension process if it was.
