Helium available to buy Minneapolis

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 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 often is used in cooling metals close to absolute zero (-460 degrees Fahrenheit), the extreme temperature required to cool MRI magnets and giving other metals superconducting properties.

We usually see helium around Minneapolis 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.

Due to its small atomic size, helium is a favored leak detection gas, as it easily diffuses through the tiniest opening. Helium, in specialty mixtures with oxygen, has enabled deep-sea research diving without the risk of “the bends” by negating the requirement of nitrogen for human respiration.

Helium can be obtained in Minneapolis from Toll Company. 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.
