  • Acetylene

    Gas Price From £134.00£184.00
    Acetylene is the hottest and most efficient fuel gas on the market, making it the preferred product for many applications. It is also the only fuel gas hot enough to weld steel. When using our oxygen and acetylene together, flame temperatures can reach an amazing 3200°C (5792°F). You will typically use between 2 to 3 times the amount of oxygen as you would acetylene so don’t let the smaller size of our cylinder put you off. Using a number 5 welding nozzle with this gas cylinder will typically provide over 5 hours of welding time. This gas becoming increasingly difficult to source for the small user. Hobbyweld now have the rent-free answer! Combine this gas bottle with our Hobbyweld Oxygen cylinder for the perfect portable rent-free gas welding kit
  • Acetylene

    Popular for heating, cutting and gas welding.

    Acetylene is an industry standard fuel gas which you can use to give an incredibly high flame temperature; consequently providing faster cutting speeds, increasing productivity and improving cut quality.
    Additionally, with the ability to provide a neutral flame, it is also the most versatile fuel gas, making it ideal for welding, heat treating, brazing, cutting and heating. We supply a number of cylinder sizes which are suitable for a wide variety of industrial operations, from a portable 10 litre for on-site fabrication to the larger 50 litre cylinders which suit heavier cutting applications both fitted with a BS4 valve. Please note that in accordance to the Acetylene Safety Regulations 2014, flashback arrestors must be fitted when connected to Oxygen-Acetylene equipment. We can also supply a wide range of safety equipment including acetone resistant hose (red), which will help you adhere to all Acetylene safety guidelines in place by the BCGA and HSE.
  • Argon

    Versatile inert shielding and purging gas.

    Argon is most commonly used in TIG and MIG welding applications.
    Being a totally inert, high density gas, Argon provides maximum flexibility when TIG welding all weldable metals. For MIG welding, it is mostly used for reactive metals such as aluminium. We supply Argon packaged in single cylinders; from compact 10 litre cylinders to our larger 50 litre heavy duty industrial cylinders.
  • Carbon Dioxide

    Gas Price £34.00
    Pure Carbon Dioxide produces the most carbonated product with a lively foam, big bubbles and a tingly, almost metallic mouthfeel. Typically used for highly carbonated lagers, IPA’s, Pilsners and American Sours – straight carbon dioxide is also used for soft drinks

  • Helium

    Gas Price From £108.00£325.00
    Helium is a gas lighter than air, with more applications than you might think. This helium bottle is the same size and is filled to the same pressure as our welding cylinders providing the capability to fill a massive number of balloons, making it perfect for weddings, birthdays, festive parties and much more. The capacity of this gas cylinder makes it a great alternative to disposable party pack bottles and much cheaper for larger parties too. There are a number of fittings which can be used with our helium cylinder, ones specifically for latex balloons, and some which fill foil balloons and larger professional tools with hoses and guns which cater for both types. If you have a large event coming up soon, you will not be disappointed with the value of this gas cylinder
  • Helium

    Leak detecting, laser welding and much more.

    Most commonly known for filling balloons, Helium is one of the lightest gases due to it’s low density and small atom radius, this is why it is particularly good at finding leaks in pressurised systems.
    Helium is chemically inert, which makes it a suitable component in shielding gases for a number of welding applications. The high thermal conductivity and high ionisation potential results in fast weld speeds and fantastic plasma suppression, the preferred option for high power laser welding. Supplied at a pressure of 200 bar in 10, 20 or 50 litre cylinders to suit your business needs.
  • Hobbyweld 15

    Gas Price £94.50
    (83% Argon, 15% Carbon Dioxide, 2% Oxygen)
    As Hobbyweld 15 has been given the name ‘universal’ gas by customers, this shows that the gas can be used for many applications. This gas mix contains a higher CO2 content than the Hobbyweld 5 so offers combined benefits of good welding performance and minimal spatter make it very popular among the agricultural, on-site and mobile welding market.  This gas is used in structural steel work and general fabrication. Hobbyweld 15 is recommended for use with mild steel at a thickness of over 7mm. For thinner materials, please look at Hobbyweld 5.

  • Hobbyweld 5

    Gas Price From £49.00£94.50
    (93% Argon, 5% Carbon Dioxide, 2% Oxygen)
    As the most popular MIG welding gas mix, there are an abundance of benefits Hobbyweld 5 can provide. This gas is simple to use and produces a stable arc which results in less spatter and clean up time for the end user, this makes it much more forgiving to the less gifted welder. Hobbyweld 5 provides good penetration and fusion, making this gas is an optimum choice for MIG welding. This gas is popular with vehicle restoration enthusiasts and provides the best weld quality for bodywork. This product is recommended for use with sheet or thin sections of mild steel at a thickness of less than 7mm. For thicker steel, please look at Hobbyweld 15.
  • Hobbyweld Argon

    Gas Price From £69.00£130.00
    Argon is generally used when TIG welding stainless steel, carbon steel and aluminium – it can also be used on a MIG welder for aluminium and alloys in conjunction with the correct MIG wire. Argon is typically suitable for most TIG welding applications providing a capability of welding at any depth. The repair of alloy wheels, farming equipment, vehicle body panels, model work and metals used for model aircraft are among many of Argon’s popular uses; however, it is also used in many applications that you wouldn’t expect, such as filling the gap between your double glazing and the space in a light bulb.
  • Oxygen

    Gas Price From £40.00£86.50
    Oxygen is commonly and traditionally used with a fuel gas (acetylene, propane or propylene) for cutting, welding, brazing and soldering. This supports the combustion of these gases and enables a much higher flame temperature to be achieved in comparison with air. Our oxygen cylinders are filled from a bulk tank which ensures optimum purity, a 1% reduction in purity can increase consumption of oxygen by 20% or more, so you can see the benefits of a professionally filled gas bottle. Combine this gas bottle with our Hobbyweld acetylene cylinder for the perfect portable rent-free gas welding kit.
  • Oxygen

    Pair with a fuel gas for maximum versatility.

    Oxygen is most commonly known as a gas which aids combustion for cutting, welding, brazing and soldering.
    Sometimes, you can also use this gas as an assist gas for plasma/laser cutting mild steel, or thermal lancing of masonry (brick, concrete and stone). Using Oxygen with a fuel gas (such as Acetylene) produces a much higher flame temperature than when used with other fuel gas types, and supports combustion of materials that would not ordinarily burn. we supply single cylinders in a variety of sizes; 10 litre to 50 litre which are fitted with industry standard BS3 valves, the perfect product for mobile applications. This product is not suitable for medical use and there are many materials which are not compatible with Oxygen, therefore we urge you to comply with all safe working practices when using Oxygen in your workplace.
  • Sureshield 15

    Versatile shielding gas for mild steel.

    A shielding tri-mix for MIG/MAG welding low alloy, carbon manganese and sheet carbon steels, Sureshield 15 performs best on thicker sections of 6mm and over.
    Sureshield 15 provides excellent penetration characteristics, reduced spatter, wire consumption and post-weld work. This versatile shielding gas is also very tolerant to variations in weld setting parameters. Supplied in two heavy duty pack options for fixed installations/high consumption industries, and our range of single cylinders ideally suited for the back of welding trolleys to provide maximum mobility in the workshop. For materials thicker than 10mm, we would recommend looking at our Sureshield 20. Alternatively, if you are using sheet metal, you may be better suited with our Sureshield 5.
