What You Need To Know About Helium

The biggest use for helium purification system, by far, is keeping things cool. Under the kinds of conditions we’re used to on Earth, helium never freezes, even if you come within a hair’s breadth of absolute zero. Liquid helium is a valuable commodity - the gas becomes a liquid at about about 450 degrees below zero Fahrenheit.

Helium is the second most abundant element in the universe, after hydrogen. But we have to stick to Earth itself for our helium needs, at least for the foreseeable future. It’s not cost-effective to pull helium out from the air. Instead, it comes from underground. Companies extract helium from natural gas, and then cool it to ultra-cold temperatures so it’s in liquid helium plant form for shipping.
