National corporate organisations typically charge £200 per year rental on their bottles and also charge a minimum of £40 for delivery. Low users like garages and bodyshops can save money on their welding gases, by buying from their local air conditioning and refrigeration supplier DBS, without rental and a choice of sizes

Oxygen

When combined with Acetylene produces a flame of 3500ºC for Oxy-Fuel welding. Oxygen can also be used with Propane to produce a 2500ºC flame, hot enough for cutting or heating seized components. Available in 10ltr or 20ltr.

 

Nitrogen

Used to pressure test automotive air conditioning systems- a legal requirement since 2010. Also used as tyre inflation on performance marques as a substitute for compressed air.

 

Co2/Argon Mix

Used as a shield to exclude air from the welding arc and prevent oxidisation of the steel in mig welding. 5% mix for steel up to 6mm thickness, 15% for steel over 6mm thickness. Pure Argon - Used as a shield again when mig welding Aluminium or Tig welding.

 

Pro Fuel

We also supply SGS Pro Fuel, the latest product which replaces Acetylene and burns at a very similar temperature. Used to carry out gas welding, cutting, heating or brazing, acetylene primary flames reach 3100°C whereas Profuel is a little lower at 2950°C this compared to propane at 2600°C makes a big difference. The Profuel secondary flame burns twice as hot as acetylene and is a much safer gas to use. However as this is a different gas we suggest end users adjust their settings and strongly recommend our range of Pro Fuel specific nozzles, which give the very best results.
