The medium sized cylinders benefits from a high gas capacity whilst having a cost-effective deposit.
The Plus range includes a 20 litre HP (high pressure) gas bottle and a 10 litre DA (dissolved acetylene) variation.
The 20 litre HP gas bottle is 950mm high and weighs under 35kg. The stature of the cylinder provides a good level of stability, however it’s always recommended to keep your cylinders securely fastened.
The 10 litre DA cylinder is 895mm high and has a manageable weight of just under 25kg. This cylinder is a standard size in the industry and there are many off the shelf cylinder trolleys to keep it secure when transporting.
Please note: the cylinder tare weight may vary slightly due to the manufacturing process.
The 20 litre HP Plus cylinders are filled to a pressure of 230 bar, that’s the same pressure typically found supplied in rental cylinders. A 20 litre Hobbyweld 5 Plus cylinder would provide you with around 360 minutes(1) of continuous welding time.
For the acetylene users, our 10 litre DA cylinder is filled with 1,746g of product. The 10 litre acetylene Plus would provide approximately 740 minutes(2) of continuous welding time.
If you’ve been using our smaller Original rent free gas cylinders and find your refilling trips are becoming more frequent, our mid-sized cylinders are a great choice. Progression onto the Plus range is simple and requires very little investment.
The Plus cylinder range is particularly suited for use in the workshop and is in fact proving popular with higher volume users who want a spare cylinder on standby for out of hours gas runouts.
Hobbyweld Plus cylinders are fitted with industry standard valves – the same valves you would typically find on larger industrial gas cylinders.
