Oh wow, if you need 50L then you'll have to buy it and get it delivered anyhow, it would evaporate before you finished making what you need. =)

Just curious, what are you doing that needs almost 100 pounds of LN2? That's a lot of gas.

Unless you are doing 3d benching you don't need anywhere near that. I get 3 2d sessions out of my 30L

I always rent a 20L dewar and it's more than enough for a full day of 2d....

Though I also need to find a cheaper solution. 150€ without delivery (using own car to go and get it since it's 3km away) isn't that good lol.

True but if i get 1L or 80L from that company it costs the same £90 also they are selling me a 50L dewer when they get them in stock and are said to hold for 10 weeks so 50L should last me a while

10 weeks are in the most ideal conditions. That still means you will be losing 5L a week but I guess if you are going to get charged that much. Any idea what they are going to charge for the dewar? You can probably find a better deal from some where else.

£150 already spoke to him, said if they don't hold for 10 weeks they get scraped his words not mine also waffle might bench with me a few times so the 50L will come in handy then.

That is cheap for a 50L. I assume it isn't new then but as long as it has been handled correctly there shouldn't be any issues.

There are larger models.

What are you doing that needs 50L a day? Most LN2 OCNing should be sporadic enough that you'd be able to stockpile plenty with even a few L a day of production.

getting around 50c a liter from Airgas currently... and in talks to get that squeezed down even more  ;)

 

**Was thinking of charging a "membership" fee, for senior members in the US that would like to 'share' my account on a COD basis to take advantage of the price. Still working the logistics of that...
