Helium available to buy Atlanta, GA

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

Because of its inertness and its very low density, helium finds a number of uses 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 Atlanta, GA in our daily lives lifting balloons.

In higher purities, where the total assay of contaminants reaches 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 often used as a leak detection gas, as it readily diffuses through the tiniest opening. Helium, in specialty mixtures with oxygen, has made possible deep-sea research diving avoiding risk of “the bends” by negating the requirement of nitrogen for respiration under the water.
