Buy your Own MIG Gas bottle With the start of the new year individuals, families and organisations often have new years resolutions or new areas of focus. This new year focus is a good thing and given the excesses of Christmas (and perhaps a little overspending), or the pressure from the boss to reduce costs, finding a saving in the new year is normally high on the priority list. One area we can help with is cheap argon. The rentfreegas model, as our name suggests, means you immediately stop paying rental the day you buy your own argon gas bottle. Now that you own your own bottle, with us, the only cost you will have is our cheap refills, no rental and no delivery. To buy your own mig gas bottle all you have to do is call or email us and we look after the rest. The first cost you pay includes the cost of the cylinder, and for a medium sized cylinder (the E size stands up to your waist) say the E size bottle this cost is $460. Thereafter, whenever you need more gas, call, text or email us and we deliver a refill (replacement) bottle full of gas and collect the empty one, and this refill cost for the E size is $160 (nothing more to pay). Prices for all Argon gas bottles (plus GST): Bottle Size First New Cost Refill Cost C bottle - (0.6m3) $220 $75 D bottle - (1.7m3) $360 $110 E bottle - (4m3) $460 $160 G bottle - (8.7m3) $560 $180 Depending on the number of welding gas bottles you purchase and how often you refill them, are the two key items that will help determine how much you can save. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us. Email: email@example.com Phone: 0404 677 187
Welding Gas Prices Below are Argon gas price, Oxygen and Argon 5/2 prices. The Argon gas price includes delivery to you. Our Mig gas, which is also called ‘Argon 5/2’ is a mixture of Carbon Dioxide (5%) and Oxygen (2%) in Argon (93%) and we can make up varying mixtures Argon, with CO2 and Oxygen in the same bottle. Mixtures of Argon with helium are also manufactured. Our bottles comply with Australian standards and that means that your existing regulator will fit straight on to the cylinder. All bottles are Speedgas branded and they are full of gas, and our argon gas prices include delivery & GST. Argon gas price and bottle sizes: C Size: New $220 & Refill $75 D Size: New $360 & Refill $110 E Size: New $460 & Refill $160 G Size: New $560 & Refill $180 Delivery is within 30km of CBD in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane & Adelaide. The no rental gas model allows a customer to own an argon gas bottle (cylinder), to avoid the daily and yearly cost of rental. The first cost is higher, as it includes the cost of the cylinder, and then the only ongoing cost is the refill or swap-over cost. The system works in a similar fashion to “swap & Go” with LPG cylinders except that we deliver to you, whether at home or at work. This is an alternative to paying rental on gas bottles for welding gas and the prices are provided so you can do a comparison to see if it works for you. In the comparison make sure you include delivery, rental, handling and all costs.
Welding using a metal inert gas (MIG) welder is really not difficult. Using a MIG welder is easy with the right MIG gas. Plenty of MIG gas options MIG welding is a simple, easy and popular welding process that uses electricity and MIG gas to melt and join metal. Luckily, when it comes to picking the right gas to use, there are plenty of options. Why do you need MIG gas? You need MIG gas in order to shield the weld from the air. But it’s not just the case of picking a MIG gas randomly. Basically, you need to make the right choice of MIG gas to: Determine the depth of the weld Determine the characteristics of the welding arc Determine the weld’s mechanical properties. How to get your gas choice right Rent Free Gas can help advise you as to what is the best MIG gas to use in your particular case. Argon can be used for your MIG welding, especially for steel and aluminium, and Argon 5-2 is also great for mild steel welding. Some other common MIG gases are CO2 and Oxygen, with Helium being the least common. Often, these gases will be fixed together, although Argon and carbon dioxide can be used as a pure MIG gas. In many cases, up to three MIG gases can be combined; typically Argon, CO2 and Helium, or Argon, CO2 and O2. Pure CO2 as a MIG gas can produce the deepest penetrating welds, although the welds can also be rough. A MIG gas made up of CO2 and Argon is very popular, although if you are welding stainless steel, the best MIG gas mix is probably mostly Argon and CO2. MIG gas advantages Welding with MIG gas is great, because: Welding a large number of metals and thicknesses is easy The welt bead is good Weld splatter is minimised Welding with MIG gas is easy to learn and master.
