Helium and Its Effects


Helium is available in two states. One is gaseous and the other being liquid. Liquid Helium is odorless, extremely cold, non-corrosive, colorless and nonflammable. Helium, whether in the gaseous or liquid state, does not react with other compounds and elements under usual conditions.



What are the health effects of helium?

Helium is a non-irritating, colorless, tasteless and odorless gas. It does not provide any cautionary advice. Human beings do not possess the sense to detect the existence of helium in that area. Though helium is inert and non-poisonous, it may still choke people by displacing oxygen in the air to a level that is far below the level required to support life.  For living beings, inhaling helium to excessive amounts can cause nausea, loss of consciousness, vomiting, dizziness, and even death in some cases. If a death takes place, it may be the result of miscalculation of judgment, confusion or due to loss of consciousness that does not let the victim come to self-rescue. If the oxygen levels are down, a person can get unconscious or meet death within seconds without any warning.

Due to its unique properties, Helium is generally found in its gaseous state. This gas is valued for Leak Detection and as a Liquid for Cooling. Several industries use Helium because of its properties to optimize productivity and performance, reduce labor costs and for safer operations.

Now the production and usage of liquid helium have become easy with MVS Engineering Pvt. Ltd.Their highly experienced team uses all their industrial and application knowledge to provide the users with a completely reliable liquid helium to meet their distinctive requirements. MVS supplies helium recovery and reliquefication systems in partnership with the world leaders- Cryomech (USA). For further information or queries, visit their website.
