I would imagine they should last a few batches but I'm just guessing.
Sorry I can't offer an answer, but I'm curious to hear others' experiences with these cylinders.

And now that I actually read the whole description carefully it says that it will give you 10-15 five gallon batches
The tanks are $14 at home depot so it would be roughly $1 or so per batch.
Can anyone verify that you can get 10-15 batches based on their experience?
I'm not sure if I can do 500 batches in a life time. I'm not a heavy brewer. The tank I got a quote on from Linde is rated R = 0.67 cubic meters = 23.66 cubic feet.
Praxair has a tank rated R and they say on their site it 21 cubic feet.
The link below for OBK says 20 cubic feet = 500 batches.

If you want to pay for convenience........
I got to say though, oxygenating your wort for 30 seconds vs. aerating for 30 min. does sound appealing to me.
I'm still using the aquarium pump set up but I'm looking at other options. The reason for that is that I came across an interesting article about oxygenating wort that claims aquarium pump set up is not very effective unless you have a high quality pump that can dish out some serious pressure such as 8-10 psi.
I looked at some hi pressure pumps but they are pricey so maybe pure oxygen is the way to go.
