Reliable compression of helium


Helium not air – compression using BOGE compressors

The challenge
Helium is a very light gas. The density of air is seven times greater than that of helium. Therefore, the greatest challenge for the BOGE compressed air specialists was to ensure the maximum density of the compressor.

The BOGE solution
The BOGE SLF 101-3 used had to be completely modified. Every little leakage source had to be located and sealed accordingly.

The result
Thanks to the good, close cooperation of Vorbuchner and BOGE, an operationally safe and efficient system for helium compression emerged from a prototype.
