Sorry, can't answer that.
Does anyone know what Air Liquide are up to? They will not speak to me, answer e-mails, or return calls. I have ALBee bottles, Ar mix, Argon and Acetylene, so greatly concerned. Have AL abandoned their ALBee bottle service? My original supplier told me they have stopped dealing with them. They sent me to another local company who exchanged my pristine 11ltr bottle for a scruffy one with a leaking valve. That cost me £82. When I returned it promptly, they had refilled my bottle and I took it back again. What they had filled it with "round the back" is anybody's guess. But it welds like there is no argon in it! Anybody had similar treatment?
I have oxy/ acetylene Albee bottles , I paid £300 + vat for them , they belong to me but they exchange them at a cost ( normal procedure ) , not sure that they would allow me to change one for another type of gas !
Worth an ask ? As long as the bottle is the same size , your paying for the gas anyway !
I have albee Oxy and Acetylene, I hope they haven't gone tits up / stopped doing them, or something, I don't use them often but when you need them, you need them !
I dont know 100% but somehow I would doubt they'd let you swap for a different kind of gas, as when you start up you "buy" the initial bottle of whatever it is... I'd think they'd want you to just start a new with your new choice of gas.
