    Default Oxygen tank question

    I have a brand new aluminum medical oxygen tank. It stands about ohh about 2 and half feet or so. Can this be used as a tank for an oxy/acetylene set up? I have other smaller oxygen tanks too they are only about 1 foot high or so maybe a bit more not even sure the diameter but I have 5 of them. BUt they are all aluminum green tops and bottom and aluminum color in the middle.

    I amTrying to figure out if I should try selling them off or keep them.


    Thanks in advance!

    Default Oxygen tank question

    I have had 5 medical cylinders, size E, I believe, converted to both Oxygen, Argon, and Helium for portable welding.

    I went to a cylinder house in Aurora, IL to have this conversion performed. The cyls needed to be hydrotested, so it was a 1-stop shop.

    Having a portable Argon cylinder is really convenient.


    Happy new year!

    Awesome! Yep this is the E as well, brand new. One tank of oxygen went through it. I have 5 of the smaller ones too not sure what they are I will have to look.

    Depending how much you plan to use it these empty very quickly with cutting &/or heating.

    Ya I can see that. I got a 125 cu ft tank for argon/co2 brand new. I was just curious. I will keep them around though. Not so much them real small ones but the Bigger one is alright and light, compared to the 125 cu ft.


    TY!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!
