Helium, a noble gas with the chemical formula He, has a multitude of uses in today's world. In some industries, it is absolutely essential. The uses of helium include:
Helium is the second smallest molecule on the elemental table after hydrogen. As a refrigerated liquid helium’s temperature is -450 degrees F. This unique combination of physical attributes makes helium very useful in some advanced technology applications such as the operation of superconducting magnets and the manufacturing of fiber optic filaments. Its small molecular size and the fact that it is inert makes an ideal gas for leak detection. As a rare gas in fairly short supply, helium is often used in conjunction with nitrogen or argon in order to reduce costs and conserve a finite resource.
Helium is a simple asphyxiant and should be used in a well-ventilated environment. Read its Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) before using and do everything you can to avoid injury. For information and availability contact Welders Supply.
