gauges, flowmeter, flowgauge. regulator.


Recommended Posts

Hello there.

I am looking to add some of the above items to my Sealey 150 mighty mig on co2 not the disposable mini canisters.

Any chance somone could suggest the best setup of gauges to use and will they work with a mixed gas setup, may change to mixed at a later date.

I did post this on the mig forum but no suggestions on the gauges yet and I want to move on this asap.

I'm not a welder by trade and no training but my setup is 0-14 lpm flow meter as link

And a regulator with a single guage (boc marked about 10 years old at least now)

Note that I use argon for tig and 5% co2 for mig from the same reg and flow meter as I swap bottles and use a small quick disconnect fitting

Works for me

Don't know much about this. When I switched to big bottles I just bought what the dealer had, it was orlikon, I think. Which I recognised from stick welding, as a brand.

I get my gasses from here (same company two websites with different prices)

They have regs too sometimes on offer

Don't recommend pure co2 unless you need penetration for thicker materials because of splatter and you need a different

Regulator as the connection can be different (sometimes.... I think) for pub gas

I take it the flowmeter does the same job as a flowgauge?

And the other gauge lets you know what's still left in the bottle. I think my bottles are 20l both CO2 and side entry, but I am considering changing one to Argon/CO2.

Would the Argon/CO2 regulator come with the twin gauges I have seen on some welding sites ?

I must be honest here I don't want anything too expensive.

Its only for home use and the need to keep my Land Rover on the road. :blush:

Yup

You can get them as a dual gauge (what's in the tank & what's outgoing).
