I am trying to work out the weight of my MDE valves and isolation manifold, without dismantling the twinset (12.2l fabers) and SS bands. Has anybody measured theirs or can point me in the right direction.
excellent stuff, that would be really helpful. Do you reckon there's a lot of difference between a 300bar iso manifold and a 230 bar like mine? I would have thought no difference other than an extra couple of threads on the valves to take the full 7 threads on the 1st stages. I have heavy duty Agir SS bands on the cylinders. Not sure how they compare with OMS.
nope, I am trying to put together a complete weight budget for my gear in different configurations + different undersuits etc. My assembled twinset 2*12.2 fabers + bands + valves/manifold seemed a bit heavy at 31.6Kg empty. It turns out the bands/bolts are 2Kg, so we're down to 29.6 and the fabers are allegedly 13-13.5Kg each, implying the valves/manifold is 2.6-3.6Kg which sounds a bit heavy. The other way I can work this out is by checking the faber serial numbers this evening and then checking the faber catalogue.
