Helium gas is a noble gas that has many uses, from manufacturing products to providing medical treatments. It is also non-toxic and does not react with other elements or compounds. Due to its unique properties, helium gas is highly sought after for various applications.
The process of obtaining helium gas begins with locating underground reservoirs of natural gas that contain the element in trace amounts. The extraction process consists of separating out the impurities from this natural gas, leaving behind only pure helium molecules. Once extracted, the purified form of helium must then be compressed into tanks or containers before being shipped off for use in industrial or healthcare settings.
Understanding how helium gas is obtained helps us to appreciate its importance as an essential resource used throughout industry and medicine today.
