    MIG gas cyclinder rental

    I have an account with Air Products, I use Coogar 5 gas and have the bottles that are about 4 or 5 feet high. I have a pre-payment contract for cylinder rental that is paid for five years. I have just had the renewal notice come through and for the next five years the rental has now gone up to £453. On top of this I have to pay for refills that are around £120 a time.

    This is now getting quite a lot fo money for amateur use! Is there anyone else cheaper out there?

    Air liquide. Contact them for local dealer. You buy the bottle for about £140, then only pay for refills

    I just switched to air products from BOC because of prices.
    A Coogar full-size refill is about £50 from air products, was about £70 from BOC.
    Rental is a bit more on 'daily basis' but about the same once all 4 bottles are on 'yearly' (I'm switching as & when BOC ones run out)

    Briz, only thing I can think is that we have different accounts. Mine isn't a "regular" trade type account, I think its called a cash-account or something, but the last time I exchanged bottles (about three months ago) I'm sure it was over £100. With my account the paperwork is done at the place of exchange and Air Products send me the bill in the post. I'll try and find it out. If it was £50 a refill I would stay with A.Products.

    How much is your rental and what type of account have you got?

    Hi Gary, try Adams Gas I think their Argon Mix is the same as Coogar.

    Argon Mix 5% CO2 (9L) Refill

    You have to pay a deposit for the bottle but once you have paid that you only pay for refils, you even get the deposit back when you return the bottle.

    They have a dealer near you:

    Fosse Gas
    Park Side
    Harolds Lane
    Enderby
    Leicester
    LE19 4AF


    Tel 0116 3272335 / 07921885641

    Might be worth a try.

    Thanks Chris, I looked on their website and thought they were Yorkshire only, I'll give them a try, they're only down the road.

    Forgot to say but when comparing prices make sure you check what the fill pressure is, I think BOC fills to 230bar but Adams Gas only fills to 130bar so while the refills may look cheaper they may not necessarily be so.

    Ah.. now you got me! Cant find the soddin' paperwork. I know its a business account of some sort and they dont have a minimum quantity per year. Had to go with direct debit payment though.
