Helium Tank Frequent Asked Question
Helium Gas Tank FAQ
Does the helium gas tank have an inflatable nozzle?
Ans: Yes, our helium tank equipped with a balloon inflation nozzle, and do not need to buy extra tools.
Can all balloons be lifted when they are inflated with helium?
Ans: Helium is lighter than air, and the balloon will rise to the buoyancy of the gas inside the balloon. When the buoyancy is greater than the weight of the balloon, the balloon can rise。Usually the balloon of the following size can be lifted off：
- Latex balloon：10" or above
- Star shape foil balloon：18" or above
- Heart shape foil balloon：18" or above
- Round shape foil balloon：18" or above
- Number & letter： 40" or above
- Ultimately depends on the weight of the material and shapes
Do all different shapes of foil balloon can float?
Ans: Depending on the design of the balloon, for example: size, weight, material weights and shape design.
***Recommend to enquire from balloon supplier to know if it is suitable for inflate helium？***
How long can it float after inflated with helium?
- Latex balloon - floating duration is about 6-10 hours.
Bigger the inflated volume, it use more helium gas, then the floating duration be longer.
Add balloon protective liquid can extend floating duration
- Foil balloon - floating duration is about 2 days above
- Ultimately depends on material weight, shape and size.
How long can you store with remaining helium?
Ans: Close the main valve at the top of bottle, usually can keep 6 months above
Helium gas tank storage environment？
Ans : It should be stored indoors, in a cool and ventilated place. Do not place in the sun, severe heat or fire.
Is the helium bad for the human body?
Ans: Feng Yingsheng, an associate professor of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Hong Kong, said that although helium is an inert gas and is not toxic, helium is difficult to mix with other gases and is not soluble in the blood. Therefore, a large amount of inhalation may cause hypoxia and be fatal。
Ans: Zhang Dehui, a professor of internal medicine at the Department of Internal Medicine of the University of Hong Kong, also said that helium will exclude other gases. After inhalation, it will aggravate the lack of oxygen in the lungs. If you continue to inhale helium, in addition to affecting blood pressure and stimulating the trachea, it will also be in a short time. Feeling exhausted and unconsciously falling into a coma, if you continue to inhale your suffocation, it is easy to suffocate and die。
