Helium

RMA provides helium (He) for a variety of uses in whatever purity needed. We provide cylinder and liquid cylinder containers large enough to cool a particle collider or an MRI magnet, and small enough to use for balloons at your next party.

Helium is a component of natural gas production. The inert gas can chill temperatures to near absolute zero. Various usages include: pressurizing and leak detection; balloon inflation; fiber optics; and glass production.

Primary Applications

From Blimps to Party Balloons
Aerospace
Electronics

The most visible use of helium is in party balloons and blimps that carry people. Although hydrogen is a marginally lighter gas, helium is non-flammable and therefore a safer choice.

The exacting nature of space operations demands a high level of precision in leak detection and pressurization. Satellite and telescope missions may also use helium as a coolant for the telescope technology.

Much like with the aerospace industry, helium is used in the electronics industry for leak detection and purging of other gases. Semiconductor production itself accounts for close to 6% of helium usage.
