Helium available to buy Cincinnati

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

Because of its very low density and its inertness, helium can be used in versatile applications in everything from lighter-than-aircraft to seting up the controlled environment required for manufacturing semiconducting devices and fiber optic cable.

In its liquid state, helium finds utility in cooling metals almost to absolute zero (-460 degrees Fahrenheit), the extreme temperature necessary to cool MRI magnets and giving other metals superconducting properties.

We more often see helium around Cincinnati 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 an important leak detection gas, as it diffuses without effort through the tiniest opening. Helium, in specialty mixtures with oxygen, has made possible deep-sea research diving avoiding risk of “the bends” by eliminating the need for nitrogen for human respiration.

Helium can be obtained in Cincinnati from Wright Brothers. 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.
