The luxfer is the 6351 alloy so it will need the Eddy cutrrent test each time it goes in for hydro now. There are some folks that won't fill that tank so if you sell it be prepared for a ticked off buyer if you don't warn them. (That topic was beaten to death below- see that thread if interested)

The Catalina's are the 6061 alloy and do not need the Eddy test.

As long as they have the proper inspections they should all be safe to use.
