Helium

Of course, everyone is familir with Helium's most visible commercial application — the filling of party balloons — but balloons actually are a small part of global helium use. Due to helium's properties of intertness, low solubility, high thermal conductivity and low density it is an extremely important gas for a large number of critical applications.

Among other applications, helium is essential for:

  • Gas Tungsten Arc Welding
  • Industrial Leak Detection
  • Controlled Atmospheres like Supersonic Wind Tunnels
  • Weather Balloons and Airships
  • Deep Diving
  • Space Telescopes
  • Scientific Helium Dating
  • Cryogenics
  • MRI Scanners and NMR Spectrometers
  • Automobile Air Bags
  • Helium-Ion Microscopes
