Helium Bottle and Cylinder Regulators
Helium regulators are devices used to regulate the pressure and flow of helium gas used in various industrial applications, including welding, metal fabrication, and scientific research. Helium gas is commonly used as a shielding gas with TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welders, as well as in other welding processes and for leak detection.
Does helium require a special regulator?
Yes, helium gas requires a special regulator designed for use with helium. This is because helium is a lighter gas than other welding gases like argon, carbon dioxide, and oxygen, and has different physical properties that require a different type of regulator.
