Most people think of welding when they think of argon gas. In fact, argon is a safe, benign gas which can be used to preserve wine, food and historical documents. For some time nitrogen was the ‘go to’ gas when it came to extending the shelf life of packaged goods but scientists have found that argon is actually 4 times more efficient than nitrogen, it is also around 40% denser than air and improves food safety. Thus argon is more effective than nitrogen in keeping food fresher for longer and improving its quality. So how does it work? Gas is used to replace oxygen which not only causes food to oxidise and spoil but allows bacteria to grow. Argon removes the oxygen very efficiently compared to nitrogen as it is denser and is able to more completely fill the spaces around food. Bacteria is starved of oxygen and enzymes that increase the rate of oxidation are inhibited. The use of food grade argon as a preserver does not add anything to the original product, rather it stops it from going bad in a completely safe way. Rent Free Gas is able to supply customers with food grade argon for a multitude of uses including the preservation of food and wine. Our rent free model allows our customers to purchase their own argon cylinder which they will never pay any rent on...ever! The cylinder will come completely full of gas and delivered for free in Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide. Whenever more gas is needed we will simply come out and replace the empty argon cylinder with a full bottle. If a smaller c size cylinder is all you need we can post it to you anywhere in Australia. Give us a call and let one of our friendly team help you out with your argon gas needs today.

In any market, the debate between renting and owning is a struggle. In the current housing market, economists go back and forth about the wisdom of buying when renting could make just as much or more economic sense. Some refuse to buy a new car when a comfortable lease seems to be a great deal. When it comes to your welding gas cylinders, however, it’s clear sense to buy rather than rent. Whether you’re an enthusiast welder or sourcing materials for your business, owning rent free welding gas bottles will save you money every time. Rent free welding gas cylinders make sense If you’re a regular welder, the expense of renting gas cylinders adds up quickly; if you run a garage or machine shop, the costs can be monumental. While a backyard hobbyist might go through a bottle every month or so, a professional welder can easily go through a bottle in a couple of days. On average, the purchase of a gas bottle is the equivalent of between about one or two years of rental. That may sound like a lot, but considering the life of use you’ll get out of a gas cylinder, the figures speak for themselves. Lifetime savings with rent free bottles Industrial gas cylinders need to be retested every 10 years. At that point, they must be hydrostatically tested before they can legally be refilled. As long as they pass testing at that point, the cylinder is good for another 10 years. This is our cost, not yours. Many gas cylinders, given the proper amount of care and maintenance, last for decades. The value-added aspect of having the cylinders delivered and swapped over as opposed to having to constantly haul and exchange rented cylinders, makes the decision to buy significantly more appealing. Some buyers worry that owning bottles might leave them stranded, if technology or standards change. As you own the cylinder you are free to sell it or have [...]
