    Default Used scba cylinders

    Does anybody know who buys used air cylinders. My dept has 4 Survivair 2216 composite cylinders we dont use anymore and we were hoping to sell them to help fund equipment for a new brush truck. Thanks Ryan

    Good luck with that. I inquried about trading in some SCBA equipment at one time and was told there's no used market right now with the AFG program buying new ones left and right.

    Not to say it can't be done, just don't get your hopes up too much.

    Dalmatian Fire supply out of Colorado, They will probably hook you up.

    Are you looking to sell them to a department or to a company buying used cylinders?

    I've sent in for a quote to Dalmation Fire. We really dont care how we sell them we just want to try to sell them. We need a little extra money for the new truck. Thanks Ryan

    If the composite bottles are older than 15 years they must be decommissioned.

    I was going to suggest Dalmatian as well. But keep in mind, they would buy them from you in order to re-sell them. So do not expect much. 2216 cylinders are not that popular as it is, Survivair versions are even more unpopular.

    Otherwise, try Ebay. TONS of SCBA cylinders on there. Not sure what you were looking to get for them and how old they are, but you can certainly try. I would guesstimate that if they are in OK shape with at least 5 years left, you could get anywhere from $100-$200 each. The less life left and the more banged up, the less you will get obviously.
