Considering this, how much does a bottle of welding gas cost?
Cost about $200. Refills are about $30. I think I saw a #1 at Northern Tool for $125, but that is a pretty small bottle.
Furthermore, why is argon so expensive? Argon is the most common gas in the atmosphere besides Nitrogen and Oxygen. Argon is a noble gas (like helium) which means that it is completely inert. Argon will not readily react with any other substance. Since it is such a small percentage of the atmosphere Argon is many times more expensive than Nitrogen.
Also asked, how long will a bottle of argon last?
The average industrial supply tank of argon gas, at around 250 cubic feet, will last about 10 hours at a 20 – 25 cubic feet per hour flow rate. Most household tanks are between 60 and 80 cf, and at a 20 cfh flow rate will last around 3 to 4 hours.
How much is a bottle of argon at Airgas?
I paid around $185 for 80cf bottle filled with argon, refill is around $40.
