    Default Price for argon

    My 336 cf argon tank is getting low. My LWS says $85.02 plus haz material fee. What are you guys paying? I'm in the Kansas City Missouri area.
    I'm at 700 psi. When should I go for refill?
    Thanks

    $30 for the big tank. They get the argon free from the air outside. :

    Are you saying you pay $30 for a 300 cf plus argon tank refill?

    Are you a pro welder with frequent trips to your local LWS? I am not. Could make a difference.

    Default Argon tank prices

    I paid $32 for my last 336 cu ft tank.

    2 months ago it cost $28 and I was a little upset but after seeing these prices, I am not complaining.

    Work in PA but my welding distributor (Superior Welding) is in Pennsauken, NJ.

    I don't pay haz mat fees and wonder if it might be because I own my tank which I bought from Superior about 33 years ago.

    I just swap it out for a filled one each time so I don't pay for a hydro.

    Latest price at Airgas:

    I just paid $51 out-the-door for a 125CF refill of C-16 (their version of C-25). He said it would be $96 out-the-door to refill my 250CF, which isn't much of a savings.

    Likewise on taking care of scuba tanks, (empty tanks are a NO/NO) I have vis checked many empty tanks and found rust, and the guy was ticked when I told him they would at the least have to be tumbled before I would fill them!
    Aluminum tanks will corrode and steel will rust (wonder how much rust is in our Welding gas tanks)??

    I paid $30 for 150cf Argon from Airgas and when I purchased the 330 they told me it would be $40 to fill it (( I will hold them to it)) when I return mine on Thursday---they told me they charge less per CF for the large tank fills here in Vanc WA/Oregon.
