Oxygen Tank Refills?

Tue, 07 May 2019 20:37:55 GMT

Hi, I bought an oxygen tank recently, and paid to have it re-certified. I called Praxxair and they told me that without an industrial license, or a medical license/prescription, they cannot (or Medigas apparently) fill a tank for personal/recreational use. Just wonder for those that have oxygen tanks, and have had them filled, how you have gone about that? Thanks.

Hey Paul, that seems strange to me, maybe try again with a new tactic. Ive purchased many bottles of O2 for welding (Oxy Acetalyne style). Try either Oxy Pro, or the main Praxxair branch, and mention you weld in the garage and just want a bottle of O2 for your torch:) im sure they will be happy to help you out! If not let me know and ill see if i can track down some other suppliers

Ok, thanks for the info. Out of curiosity, are there tank differences between medical oxygen and welding oxygen? Would my tank, image attached, be considered more medical related due to the thing where the regulator connects to, or do all O2 tanks have this? Also, is welding O2 considered 'food safe'?[Resized_20190411_145710](//
