Need compressed, liquid and various mixtures of helium (He)?

For example, the Healthcare industry uses medical helium to provide the superconducting magnets in MRIs and NMRs with the cryogenic temperatures needed to capture high-resolution images.

The Welding and Metal Fabrication industries take advantage of the inert properties of helium welding gas at arc temperatures when welding materials with high heat conductivity (e.g., aluminum, stainless steel, copper and magnesium alloys).

Look for industrial-grade helium in Labs and Life Science industries as an important carrier gas when performing complex and precise analysis.
