Helium is used as a cryogenic agent to cool superconductive magnetic coils in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) medical equipment.
Aside from that, Helium is chemically inert and can be used to create an inert atmosphere for Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) or Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding. It is also used for purging, annealing, sputtering, leak checking and etching applications in the Electronics industry.
Helium gas with oxygen in diving tanks prevents the narcotic effect of nitrogen in deep waters. Industries with operations offshore rely on diving gases and breathing mixtures for subsea work.
The ALPHAGAZ™ brand of pure helium has purity of up to 99.9999%, perfect for critical laboratory and analytic applications.
Air Liquide produces Helium in various grades and they come in cylinder and cylinder pallets.
