Frequently Asked Questions

How old do I have to be to purchase a gas cylinder?

You need to be at least 18 years old to purchase a Hobbyweld cylinder.

 
I haven’t got a Hobbyweld cylinder, can you fill my old bottles?

It is illegal for anyone to fill a cylinder which belongs to another gas company, as we have no record of cylinder tests, age or contents – these must be repatriated with their rightful owner. In short, unfortunately not.

Once I pay my deposit, does the cylinder belong to me?

No. Cylinders always belong to Hobbyweld, this also means that we are responsible for the cylinder maintenance. However, there are no time restraints on how long you keep the Hobbyweld cylinder.

What administration charges apply to the deposit return?
An administration charge will be applied when returning your cylinder for a refund, of £10 +VAT for all cylinders purchased on or after 1st February 2019.

For cylinders purchased before this date, the following admin charges apply:

Original – £10 +VAT
Plus – £10 +VAT
Ultra – £15 +VAT
Acetylene (all sizes) – £30 +VAT

Why is the Acetylene deposit more expensive?

Acetylene cylinders cost much more to manufacture. The gas cylinder contains a porous filling and the acetylene is dissolved in an acetone to produce the gas you withdraw. If we could make it cheaper, we honestly would.

How much is the deposit?
We have two variations of gas cylinder, high pressure and dissolved acetylene – these are each available in 3 sizes (small, medium and large)

For high pressure cylinders, the following deposit charges apply:

Original (small) – £70
Plus (medium) – £110
Ultra (large) – £190

For our dissolved acetylene cylinders, the following deposit charges apply:

Original (small) – £120
Plus (medium) – £160
Ultra (large) – £255

VAT is not charged on deposits.

Will my regulator fit your cylinder?

Our Hobbyweld ORIGINAL and PLUS cylinders are fitted with standard industrial gas valves used by companies such as BOC, Air Products, Air Liquide & Dixons Gas Ltd. If you have been using an industrial gas cylinder previously, your regulators will fit. If you are currently using disposable cylinders, you will require an adaptor hose and a regulator.

The Hobbyweld ULTRA cylinder is fitted with a built-in regulator. Instead, attach your hoses directly to the quick action coupling provided.

How many disposable cartridges are your cylinders equivalent to?

The Hobbyweld ORIGINAL cylinder is equivalent to approximately 21 disposable gas cartridges.

Hobbyweld PLUS cylinder is equivalent to approximately 79 disposable gas cartridges.

The Hobbyweld ULTRA cylinder is equivalent to approximately 100 disposable gas cartridges.

How do I return an unwanted cylinder?

You can return your cylinder to us for a refund on your deposit. You must have your original deposit form to reclaim any money. Alternatively, agents can accept cylinders back without a deposit form, but no money will be returned to yourself.

Can I exchange between gas mixes?

Yes. Providing the cylinder deposit value is the same, you can swap between gas mixes.
