Our 55 cubic foot
steel cylinder complete with new valve, fresh paint and current
hydro-test. The rating on this tank is either DOT 3AA 1800, or 3A 1800,
which means it has a working pressure of 1800 psi. The tanks have a new
CGA-580 valve which will allow you to fill the cylinder
with argon, argon/CO2 mixes, nitrogen or helium. These gasses
are commonly used for MIG and TIG welding. The tanks are shipped empty
and we cannot ship them filled.
The Gas Bottles have a current test date of 12/14, and are good till December 2024. These bottles represent a great value. Perfect for MIG welders. If you have your flowmeter set to 20 CFH, these bottles will give you 2 hours and 45 minutes of welding time. The bottles measure approximately 29" from the base to the top of the valve, and are 8" in diameter and weigh approximately 30 lbs.
We strongly recommend that you check with your local gas distributor to make sure they will fill the bottle. Many times, gas distributors won't fill bottles you own, or that didn't come from them directly. Let them know you have a 55
cu ft cylinder, that is DOT or ICC approved, rated 3AA1800 or 3A1800, and is valved CGA-580 for
argon or argon/co2 mixtures and they will tell you if they will fill it or not.
The bottles are shipped empty. If you are local in the Chicago area, you can pick the bottle up at our Elk Grove Village facility, 180 Joey Drive. If you would like the bottle filled with a 75% Argon/25% CO2, or 100% Argon, we can do it for you, on the spot, for $18.50. And if you have another small cylinder that you already own and want filled, we can fill that also.
Our gas bottles have Free Shipping in the Continental United States only.
