CO2 refills near Philly?


Anyone know where to get CO2 canisters refilled in southeast PA? (preferably Philly or Delaware County?)

all most any beer disturber can do it. though most of them do it on an exchange bases, so if you have a nice co2 tank you might not want to go this way. You can ask your local muffle shop where they get theirs fill too

i just called airgas in KOP and they said almost no one does fills everyone does exchanges. anyone out there in the Philly area know where you can get a refill on CO2. BTW a refill/exchange at Airgas is currently $22.48 tank is $133 first time buy.

Is your co2 tank new? I get mine exchanged in conshohocken. 5lb $18 or 20lb $26. Mine were all acquired second hand for $25 to $50 each.

sorry just got back to this. yes my tank is new and i wanted aluminum not steel. I wanted a 20# tank and did not want any extra weight than i had to. All of the exchange places were steel only and i just did not want to have the extra weight. But as it turns out the Fire suppression place in exton is only about 2 miles from my house it all works out well.
