Helium is used as a cryogenic agent to cool superconducting magnetic coils in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) medical equipment.
Other than 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 scuba tanks prevents the narcotic effect of nitrogen in deep water. Industries with offshore operations rely on diving gases and breathable mixtures for underwater work.
The ALPHAGAZ™ brand of pure helium is up to 99.9999% pure, perfect for critical laboratory and analytical applications.
