    Theres usually a number behind it....like KRYSAL 5
     
  3. Bloody hell a Messer cylinder, where did you find that, the industrial museum
    Krystal is/was a MAG welding gas. Might be an idea to roll it around a bit before you use it

    It's a compressed gas you don't need to mix it.
     
    Maker and chunkolini like this.
  8. You can get separation over time due to the different densities of the gas and those cylinders are very old

    As soon as you open the valve the turbulence in the bottle will take care of that.
