Helium gas diaphragm valves


Helium gas providers are continually striving for improved means to deliver their products to an increasingly demanding customer base. To fulfill this perpetually advancing need, helium providers pursue a race for excellence in providing the best possible technological solutions captured in some of the world’s most advanced equipment to serve many demanding industries.

At the same time, global and local independent gas companies have responded to these changing needs in the provision of ever-more closely controlled processes for gas supply both in increasingly exacting single gas purifies and progressively more accurate discrete gas mixtures controlling contaminants or components, respectively, to parts-per-trillion (ppt) levels in some cases.

In contrast with this, the means by which these gases are contained within, and released from cylinders has not changed very much in the past few decades. Globally, users of specialty gases have become accustomed to accessing their special gases in a somewhat standard industrial cylinder package, designed for an entirely different use environment. Perhaps uniquely, specialty gas cylinders are often deployed in manifolded situations, with cylinders permanently connected, supplying calibration, carrier and analysis gases to laboratory-installed systems and equipment. This situation brings about both the need to confirm at a glance whether a particular cylinder valve is open or closed, and also the ability to open and close supply valves quickly and easily to ensure process-critical supply precisely when required. Add to this an increasing prevalence of compact, lightweight cylinders in this field, and a new market specific valve requirement is emerging for an elegant solution to these very specific new needs. That’s according to gas control solutions leader GCE, which has recently introduced to the market two new members of its valve family, in the shape of the GCE One Touch valve and sister fully rotating handwheel diaphragm valve.
