Sometimes I fill my medical bottles with the welding stuff and sometimes the reverse. kind of a cheap oxygen supply.

Default old comp gas cylinder

plumb it into your compressed air line and increase your system reserve(use as a storage tank) -at 200psi you're still ten times less than normal pressure for that tank

Edit: it is a 300 or 400 cubic foot cylinder. Looked up the DOT #.
I think you may be guessing a tad big. Both of mine are about 5 feet tall and 10 inches in diameter. The O2 bottle is actually 221cuft and the C25 bottle is actually 240cuft. The size is stamped in the top of the bottle on all of the bottles I have as well as the rated pressure and hydro test date.

Phil,

Might be able to help you out with those, sent you a PM.

I've got one here without a valve, I inquired if anything could be done with it, they said that since they couldn't guarantee moisture having gotten into the tank, they would scrap it. Right now it's setup as an air accumulator for the air compressor when I need it, but I suspect that it will become a gong sometime in the not too distant future.
