Helium gas plays a vital role in the production of rocket components and supporting launch activities. Defense, nuclear, and aerospace manufacturers use helium for detecting leaks in critical equipment such as rocket engines, and for purging and propellant transfer. Many face the challenge to increase quality while reducing costs. Air Products has been a leading supplier of helium to the space industry since its inception delivering innovative approaches such as gas supply management systems which can reduce the cost of gas ownership and improve overall processes. Our proprietary liquid helium pumping technology allows these industries to pressurize large on-site gaseous storage vessels at lower costs, with less energy, and at faster rates.

Air Products has a global supply network, breadth of resources, world class service, expert technical assistance, commitment to quality, and an industry-recognized safety record. We understand your need for a secure, reliable supply, coupled with attention to detail and supported by service—throughout the world. Let us help make your business take off.
