Helium plays an important role in industry. Leak detection, purging and pressurising of manufactured components is often carried out with gaseous helium to check quality, integrity and safety. Currently much of that helium is vented to the atmosphere as part of the production process, gone never to be replaced.
Helium recovery can provide an effective way to control costs, ensure security of supply and reduce operational expenditure. And importantly stops the wasting of helium.
Crucially, it pays for itself. Our own experiences point to rapid payback on capital expenditure, sometimes periods of less than one year.
