Argon is a common inert gas that makes up about 1% of the earth’s atmosphere. It is colourless, odourless. It is used widely in the welding industry as a ‘shield gas’ and can be purchased in take-home cylinders.
Helium is an inert gas, colourless and odourless and much lighter than air. It cannot be manufactured and global supplies are limited. Helium has many industrial applications yet its dwindling supply means that the price of the gas is rising. Until recently, take-home cylinders of pure Helium (for party balloon inflation) have been readily available.
The Current State of Nitrogen & Argon Gas Supplies Australia
Until 2019, Max Dog Brewing sold full take home nitrogen cylinders. This is no longer the case. An alternative Australian supplier of take home nitrogen and/ or argon cylinders is currently being sought by Exit.
