Helium available to buy Beaumont

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

As a result of its very low density and its inertness, helium finds a number of uses in everything from lighter-than-aircraft to creating the controlled environment you need for manufacturing semiconducting devices and fiber optic cable.

In its liquid state, helium finds utility in cooling metals about 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 Beaumont in everyday life lifting balloons.

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

Due to its small atomic size, helium is an important leak detection gas, as it readily diffuses through the smallest opening. Helium, in specialty mixtures with oxygen, has facilitated deep-sea research diving without risking “the bends” by removing the need for nitrogen for human respiration.

Helium can be obtained in Beaumont from Coastal Welding Supply. 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.
