who uses the most gas and how many do you get through a month
Probably who ever does the most welding.
or who ever forgets to turn the bottles off at the end of the day.
Depending on what I eat, I can make a fair amount
Seems an odd random question. Can we ask why you want/need this information?
I know of a place in Dunstable that does purged TIG welding of SS, Titanium and Inconel. They make flexible gimbals for the space and aviation applications.
They use a full tanker lorry of argon a month
BOC get through a few as well
@Welderpaul gets through a heck of a lot.
I thought we weren't going to mention the N2O 'issue' until we'd held the intervention?
I use one Amstel or Carlsberg lager C02 bottle in about two years ....
the best gas in the world ,,,,, probably.
Once every 2 years if I dust the welder off
Is that full size Parm? the shop lads use about 1.5 tankers per month when busy with specialist work and this drops to around a tanker every 10 weeks on off periods.
Which shipyard do you work in?
Had to think about this, probably a bottle a month of something. We have full size OA through BOC , big and small rent frees in both argon and mig gas and a small portapack set.
Bet that's an interesting walk round.
it sure is
It’s the same size as one of those petrol tankers
Once upon a time JCB had that many leaks they probably lost more gas than most others actually use.....theirs was a plumbed in system fed from giant holding tanks and mixed on site...their opinion was they wouldnt save money repairing the leaks as the reduced usage would increase the cost of the gas......hopefully theyve changed their views.
Looks like you've covered all the bases, Bob
Thanks Parm they are the full size, they do a smaller one about 2/3rd the size looking at them.
