HELIUM(He)

General

Helium is a highly inert gas found in nature in limited quantities. It is colorless, odorless, non-flammable & non-toxic. Liquid Helium is the coldest known substance with the boiling point of -269 degrees C. Special transportation and storage equipment is required for minimizing losses of the product.

Applications

Helium is the second element in the periodic table and owing to its nonflammable nature & lightweight, replaces Hydrogen in the metrological applications. Helium is used in numerous other applications in line with its highly inert & stable characteristics. Major applications are as under:

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Fibre Optics
  • Balloon Filling
  • Research & Development
  • Deep Sea Diving
  • Space Exploration
  • Analytical Applications
  • Leak Detection
