Luxfer CO2 cylinder deal

Unread postby smileysid » Thu Sep 17, 2015 4:27 pm

Dear all,
In the search of good quality co2 cylinder, I found the recommended option of Luxfer aluminium cylinder.
The best price quoted by the supplier is Rs. 3250 + tax (for 2KG model). As, I have not dealt with pressurised setup before, so I want to know, whether it is a good deal?
What is the suggested regulator name, brand, I should opt for. I heard, Chawri bazar is the best place for buying regulators (Shop name - Weild Guru), Any experience or, recommendation?

Luxfer is a international brand, and I have been using it for the last few years.
There Unit is in faridabad. Whom did you talk to? There prices may be high, but the quality and look is apt for any setup.
Go for a branded regulator, Local regulator can be ok,still...Mine is ESAB.

I think the price is very good. I've got myself the 3Kg version and I guess I spent 6K to get that.

Yes you can. I am using similar regulator (ISTA AcuDose) on my Luxfer cylinder.

Luxfer does not have a 4kg cylinder as far as I can remember. I have the 3kg one and simply put it is the best cylinder you can get in the market. 5k including taxes (which are nearly 20%).
