Helium available to buy Albany

A colorless, odorless, tasteless, inert gas, Helium (He) is usually known as a light gas with heavy uses.

Owing to its inertness and its very low density, helium is adaptable for use in everything from lighter-than-aircraft to creating the controlled environment necessary for manufacturing semiconducting devices and fiber optic cable.

In its liquid state, helium often is used in cooling metals about to absolute zero (-460 degrees Fahrenheit), the dramatically cold temperature necessary to cool MRI magnets and giving other metals superconducting properties.

We more often see helium around Albany in our daily lives lifting balloons.

In higher purities, where the total assay of contaminants may be as low as 100 parts per billion (ppb), helium is the analytical choice as a carrier gas for chromatography.

Because of its small atomic size, helium is a favored leak detection gas, as it readily diffuses through the smallest opening. Helium, in specialty mixtures with oxygen, has made possible deep-sea research diving without the risk of “the bends” by negating the requirement of nitrogen for respiration under the water.

Helium can be obtained in Albany from Noble Gas Solutions. We have helium in purities from standard commercial grades, ultra-high and ultra-carrier and research grades, in gas form from 3 to 300 cubic feet and liquid from 30 to 500-liters.
