  • Welding gasses ???

    My equipment purchase frenzy is finally near the end (for now) I now have my Dynasty 200DX/Coolmate 4, Millermatic 350P/XR-AlumaPro/Bernard Q300 and Hypertherm 45. I am only a hobbyist working at home and other than building tools, carts, fences/gates and working on my car restorations, I really don't have specific needs, just want to be prepared. I know my reasonable selection of gasses would be Argon, C25 and 92/8. Helium is another consideration.

    I currently have: 2 C25 122cf & 300cf, Helium 300cf, C25 300cf, Oxygen 250cf and acetylene WC
    ...I have thought of refill/exchanges to reconfigure my inert inventory to include:
    • Argon - 300cf
    • C25 - 300cf
    • 92/8 - 300cf
    • Helium - 122cf or 250cf


    What are some recommendations of gasses and sizes to have on hand or different options ???

    think you will find this Praxair Gas Selection Manual useful...

    it will explain a lot about the why's and hows of the gases....

      i have the regular big bottles of acetyline and oxegen and one big c25 for the shop the argon and tri mix i have are small ones because if i go on a road job they fit on the truck better and take up less space.i also keep 20lb propane bottles to take on the road too down here we have propane bottles at every store around so if i run out on a weekend of if i'm on a road job the propane is easily swapped out at any convienence store.
