BOC's new F3VIPR 33 litre high pressure cylinder eliminates the hassle involved with acquiring, fitting and maintaining a separate regulator.

BOC Specialised Manufacturing business manager Kyle Scott says the new range offers busy welders and manufacturers an all-in-one solution that improves productivity by eliminating hassles associated with acquiring, fitting and maintaining a separate regulator.

"Usage can also be tracked with a content indicator showing the amount of gas left," he says.
 
BOC has also reduced the size of the F3VIPR cylinder and added a handle to assist with trundling, increasing its portability and allowing for better manoeuvrability around workshops and sites.

"The 300 bar high pressure has also allowed us to increase gas content in most F3VIPR shielding gas traffics compared to existing G size cylinders with up to 13 percent content increase on our 065G Argoshield Universal," Scott adds.

The F3VIPR is now available in 18 of BOC’s Argoshield, Stainshield, Alushield and Argon gas mixtures and is compatible with a standard 5/8 inch fitting, which means it will work with existing hoses and connections.
