Does Tractor Supply exchange welding tanks?
Herein, how much does it cost to refill an oxygen tank for welding?
Somewhere in the $150-$200 each. once you get past the initial hit, the refill isn't too bad. paid about $40 for my C-25 refill last week at AirGas. Oxygen and acetylene are comparable from what I remember when I did gas welding and cutting.
Similarly, can I exchange oxygen tank for argon tank? Not true. The valves have different threads for several safety purposes, but oxygen cylinders and argon cylinders are of the same construction. It is true that not all cylinders are the same. Depending on the gas company, You might be able to trade that cylinder if it turns out to be OK and is a standard size etc.
Herein, how much does it cost to refill oxygen and acetylene tanks?
Expect to pay around $200 - $300 depending on size of tanks, level of fill, brand and size of torches. If you do got the CL route, make sure they are private cylinders (meaning no company markings on the cylinders), when it comes time to fill, they usually just exchange them.
How long does a 20cf welding tank last?
At that rate you will only have less than 12 hours of flow time from that bottle. A couple of things. Your flow rate is usually set from 10-20 cfh which on average if you had a 250 cf bottle would last for 10-20 hours of welding non stop. That would work out to about 2-4 days of serious welding.
