What are the uses of Helium?
Helium is one of the most inert gases and lighter than air. It is used as a cooling media in nuclear reactions and other studies. It is also used as an inert atmosphere for crystal growing. It is used to fill fluorescent lamps and as a leak detection fluid.
Zero Grade and UHP Helium are the most commonly used carrier gas for Flame Ionization (FlD) and Thermal Conductivity (TCD) gas chromatography. Liquid Helium is used in cryogenic research.
Our mission is to deliver the highest quality helium with speed
and reliability. Safety is our highest priority, and we are committed
to keeping our customers happy.
Common Uses of Helium
Helium is used to cool superconducting magnets in MRI scanners. As helium is lighter than air, airships and balloons can be filled with the gas to gain lift.
Helium is used to condense hydrogen and oxygen to make rocket fuel. Helium can be added to oxygen tanks so that divers can breath more easily.
This is especially important for people that go deep diving (over 450 ft below sea level). Used in helium-neon lasers. These lasers can be used to read barcodes.
We serve businesses and individuals who want a dependable helium
supplier who can provide safe, economical, and practical gas solutions.

It is a fantastic protective gas as it is inert (unreactive). The age of rocks which contain uranium and thorium can be estimated using helium dating.
Helium is often used as a carrier gas in gas chromatography. Helium can be used to detect leaks (small fractures) in some vessels.
Helium can be used to detect leaks in high-vacuum and high-pressure equipment. For materials easily contaminated by air, helium is used as a shielding gas in the arc welding process.
Helium is used as a protective gas when growing silicon and germanium crystals and when producing titanium and zirconium.
