Helium available to buy Denver

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

Owing to its very low density and its inertness, helium is adaptable for use in everything from lighter-than-aircraft to building the controlled environment necessary 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 dramatically cold temperature needed to cool MRI magnets and giving other metals superconducting properties.

We more commonly see helium around Denver in everyday life 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.

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

Helium can be obtained in Denver from Rocky Mountain Air 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.
