Source of bottle gasses - ethane?


I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of a manufacturer that sells consumer sized bottles of ethane. By consumer sized, I mean 40-80cu. ft cylinders. I've searched through google and all I can find is the fire retardant, which is obviously not what I'm looking for. Thanks in advance

All refrigeration suppliers will sell r-50 which is ethane, take a cylinder along and buy what you need, however it's farking expensive because of it's purity. (in oz it's like $150/kg)

Ethane bottles


Coming late to the discussion, but agree with panache in a couple of aspects: 1- The gas is extremely pure and expensive; 2- refrigeration suppliers use it for chillers. We repaired a -78ÂșC flexicool that lost its gas and it was fairly expensive.
