why cool scuba tanks while filling?

The scuba water tank is often filled when the cylinder is submerged in water.
As the pressure increases, the water helps to cool the tank and also increases the temperature of the cylinder.
The ideal gas law states the relationship between the volume, pressure and temperature of the ideal gas, by equation pV = nRT, where p is pressure, V is volume, n is the number of gas moles, R is the gas constant and T is the temperature.
Air acts as an ideal gas and, under conditions usually associated with a water-filled scuba tank, air acts as an ideal gas.
Pressure and temperature when the scuba water tank is full, the pressure inside the scuba water tank increases as more air is added.
Since the volume of the cylinder is almost fixed, the increasing pressure will produce a corresponding temperature increase.
Drown the cylinder. The heat generated inside the cylinder is transferred to the wall of the cylinder.
Immersing the tank in water can dissipate heat into the environment faster than air.
Cooling the cylinder after the tank is full, the drop in the tank temperature will cause the drop in the air pressure in the tank.
In fact, the warm tank of 3,000 psi is less air than the cold tank of 3,000 psi.
This heat transfer also allows the tank to be filled faster.
However, increasing the filling rate may not allow the heat accumulated in the air and gas cylinder walls to dissipate into the water, and the pressure drops once the air and walls cool down.
