Simply pay a one off deposit for your first cylinder and first gas fill, keep it for as long as you need and then refill it as often or as little as you like.
Many gas users do not require their cylinder every week of the year and understandably do not want to rent a high pressure gas cylinder they will only use occasionally. However, disposable cartridges are very expensive in relation to larger cylinders. Hobbyweld provides the solution and it couldn't be easier.
With the Hobbyweld gas bottle, you can take advantage of high quality gases in large refillable cylinders.
A popular shielding gas, ideally suited for MIG welding, in particular sheet metal and thin sections of mild steel under 7mm in thickness, such as car bodywork and light sheet work. This gas mix offers a great number of benefits over using straight carbon dioxide for welding; it decreases the chances of porosity, welding spatter and oxidation. Hobbyweld 5 is our number one vehicle restoration gas and is a favoured mix with customers restoring classic cars and motorcycles.
A specially formulated Argon, Carbon Dioxide and Oxygen gas mix (often referred to as a tri-mix or argon shield) which can be used in a number of welding positions. The name comes from the 15% carbon dioxide content; the extra CO2 gives this gas the capability of MIG welding carbon steels up to 18mm in thickness. Welders will experience good arc stability and a broad heat which is due in part to the 2% oxygen content. The combined benefits of good welding performance and minimal spatter make it very popular among the agricultural, on-site and mobile welding market. The wide operating range makes Hobbyweld 15 the best choice for structural steel work, medium gauge plate and general fabrication.
The number one choice for general welding, cutting and repair applications. Acetylene is the hottest and most efficient fuel gas on the market, making it the preferred product for many applications. It is also the only fuel gas hot enough to weld steel, when using our oxygen and acetylene together, flame temperatures can reach an amazing 3500°C (6330°F). You will typically use between 2 to 3 times the amount of oxygen as you would acetylene so don't let the smaller size of our cylinder put you off. Using a number 5 welding nozzle with this gas canister will typically provide over 5 ½ hours of welding time. Acetylene is becoming increasingly difficult to source for the small user.
This gas is commonly and traditionally used with a fuel gas (propane, acetylene or propylene) for cutting, welding, brazing and soldering. Oxygen supports the combustion of these gases and enables a much higher flame temperature to be achieved in comparison with air. Our oxygen cylinders are filled from a bulk tank which ensures optimum purity, a 1% reduction in purity can increase consumption of oxygen by 20% or more, so you can see the benefits of a professionally filled gas bottle. Combine this gas bottle with our Hobbyweld acetylene cylinder for the perfect portable rent free gas welding kit.
Generally used when TIG welding stainless steel, carbon steel and aluminium it can also be used on a MIG welder for aluminium and alloys in conjunction with the correct MIG wire. Argon is typically suitable for most TIG welding applications providing a capability of welding at any depth. The repair of alloy wheels, farming equipment, vehicle body panels, model work and metals used for aircraft are among many of Argons popular uses; however it is also used in many applications that you wouldn't expect, such as filling the gap between your double glazing and the space in a light bulbs. The Hobbyweld argon cylinder is filled with high purity, high quality gas, enabling us to boast a minimum purity of 99.995%, giving you the best possible results.
