Compressed Helium Gas & Liquid Helium

Fiber Optics

In the fiber manufacturing process, helium is essential for cooling fiber as it is being pulled from a furnace and prior to applying protective coatings.  Although manufacturer processes vary widely, a typical fiber optic production process uses large quantities of helium. No other industrial gas company has access to as much helium as Air Products, and no other supplier has as many owned and operated helium facilities.  We understand your need for a secure, reliable supply, coupled with attention to detail, supported by service—throughout the world.

We offer a variety of technical services, gas-based solutions and a full line of industrial gases—helium, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, argon and various gas blends for small and large volume users.  Talk to Air Products, our applications engineers can work with you to understand your operation and recommend improvements that can help you optimize gas use and improve product quality.
