“Bob_O”What are nitrogen tanks?


Bob,
Welding Air Supply companies rent nitrogen, argon, and air tanks for welders to use.  I have read but not verified these tanks are filled to 6000 PSI.  They weigh a ton and if you rent one, you will need a Dual Use Regulator to fill a CF or SCUBA tank.  Joe sells one and you would need to contact him for a price.  Did I mention these tanks are big?  They are about five feet tall with the protector cap on and require two people to safely lift them.  If I go this route, the tank will be secured to a post in the barn to keep from falling over.  I have seen one video where an airgun dealer fills the airgun with a bottle. 

PS.  These bottles can be dangerous.  I almost lost the tip of a finger when one was dropped on it while moving the bottle.
