HELIUM (HE)

Welding Helium Gas Overview

 

HELIUM (HE) IS A COLORLESS, ODORLESS, NON-TOXIC, NON-CORROSIVE AND NONFLAMMABLE GAS. IT IS THE SECOND LIGHTEST ELEMENT NEXT TO HYDROGEN.WELDING HELIUM GAS IS AN INERT GAS AND DOES NOT REACT WITH OTHER COMPOUNDS OR ELEMENTS. DUE TO ITS HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY AND HIGH IONIZATION POTENTIAL, HELIUM IS USED AS A SHIELDING GAS FOR WELDING APPLICATIONS WHEN INCREASED HEAT INPUT IS DESIRED, AND LOW TOLERANCE FOR OXIDIZING ELEMENTS EXIST SUCH AS WITH ALUMINUM, STAINLESS STEEL, COPPER, AND MAGNESIUM ALLOYS. THE ADDITION OF HELIUM GENERALLY INCREASES WELD POOL FLUIDITY AND TRAVEL SPEED. IF YOU PUT HELIUM IN A BALLOON AND LET GO OF THE BALLOON, THE BALLOON RISES UNTIL IT POPS. WHEN IT POPS, THE HELIUM THAT ESCAPES HAS NO REASON TO STOP -- IT JUST KEEPS GOING AND LEAKS OUT INTO SPACE. THEREFORE, IN THE ATMOSPHERE THERE IS VERY LITTLE HELIUM AT ANY GIVEN TIME. HELIUM IS CRYOGENICALLY DISTILLED OUT OF NATURAL GAS TO PRODUCE THE HELIUM WE PUT IN BALLOONS.

Welding Helium Gas Uses and Applications

WELDING AND FABRICATION

HELIUM GAS IS USED IN WELDING BECAUSE OF ITS INERT PROPERTIES AT ARC TEMPERATURES. IT IS AN IDEAL GAS FOR USE WITH MATERIALS SUCH AS ALUMINUM, STAINLESS STEEL, COPPER AND MAGNESIUM ALLOYS DUE TO IS HIGH HEAT CONDUCTIVITY.

 

Balloon's

Since Helium is the second lightest gas on the periodic table, and non flammable, it is perfect to use in balloons to give them the ability to float in the air.  We can handle all different demand levels.  We carry the Balloon time helium tanks that are perfect for any small event and we also carry the large industrial cylinders for users with a higher demand.  Click on the link below to learn more about the balloon time helium.
