When new meets old: addressing helium shortages

0

Helium is like gold,” said Tony Corletto, BAUER Sales Manager for Industrial Air and Gas Products. Corletto was speaking on the widespread scarcity of helium: it is one of the most abundant elements in the universe, yet one of the most difficult to find on Earth. BAUER Compressors, a German-based company with a large US manufacturing facility in Norfolk, Virginia, has a solution. BAUER is lauded worldwide for its industrial compressors, which lead markets including nitrogen, biogas, military applications, and many more. Today, BAUER remains an industry leader with over 75 years of experience; one which continues redefining the next big thing, for helium, and beyond.

As Corletto put it, “Helium is very plentiful, but it’s hard to get.” In order to mitigate the widespread dependence on this element, BAUER produces compressor systems for helium recovery. These helium recovery systems minimize wasted helium by recycling and purifying the helium utilized in compressors and similar equipment. In rough terms, a bag collects the leftover helium, circulates it through a hose, and sends it through a compressor system to store the gas at pressures up to 6000 PSI. The element can then be reused multiple times, thus saving users both money and hassle.

BAUER isn’t new to the helium market; they’ve been selling helium compressors and ancillary equipment to well-known gas industry leaders since the 1980s. Now, over 40 years later, they provide helium products and compressors to enormous corporations and members of the Fortune 500 shortlist. Decades of building helium-specific compressors has made BAUER helium solutions the gold standard.
