We recently compared our VES Helium Leak Testing machinery to similar existing machinery that used different detector gas - here are the results.
Our Client is part of the world’s largest manufacturer of Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning products and systems. As part of their continued expansion, a brand new production line was created, meaning they required additional helium leak detection machinery and…
“While there is a view that the easy targets for reduced usage were already realised during Helium Shortage 2.0, it is safe to assume that the difficulty in obtaining helium, combined with sharply higher prices, will provide continued incentives to reduce helium consumption.”
Helium Shortage 3.0, the third period of sustained helium shortage since 2006, has now been ongoing for almost a year and a half.
Our Customer is one of the world’s largest automotive fuel tank manufacturers, with factories across the USA, Europe and Asia. The company were facing a shortage in skilled maintenance staff, which was causing a series of issues impacting line efficiency.
When people talk about the world running out of helium – it’s not. It’s total fiction.
In 2013, a worldwide shortage of helium was predicted, following a decade of significant growth in the global demand for helium.
