Default Does anybody use tanked gas anymore??

I canít make any oxygen concentrator work with my minor. Can I use tanked oxygen safely or do I have to quit the whole thing? Nothing should be this hard.

Please help. /

What exactly are you having trouble with? Literally making the connections? Poor Oxygen Purity? Insufficient flow?

I use tanks personally, but plenty of folks use OxyCons to power a minor torch no issues.

Sue, it should be possible to use your concentrator with your Minor. I've been doing it for a couple decades. With that said, when I do off site demos, I use a small tank of oxy (not sure the size definition, but it lasts about 3 hours).

Whereabouts are you in relation to Dallas?

All three thighs . I also don’t have a controlled temperature environment. I think that has a large affect on the purity and the pressure.
Thank you

Minors work very well on an oxycon, my alpha does as well although could use more. What sort of problem are you having?
I'm in a garage studio in AZ
