Helium, a scarce non-renewable gas, is used in the production of fiber-optic equipment and semiconductors. Other industrial uses of helium include optoelectronics,
laser welding, cold gas spraying, chemical processing and leak detection.
Rising demand and declining reserves of Helium have led to dramatic increases in the helium price, intensifying the market for helium recovery systems. Helium recovery
is used when the gas is required for, but not used up in an industrial process or system. In the production of optical fiber, the cooling rate and the quality of
the product can be dramatically impacted if a less-than-effective helium recovery system is used.
With today's high helium prices, the XEBEC He-3200 makes compelling bottom line sense. This compact, economical system efficiently recovers high-purity helium
from contaminated off-gas streams. Fully skid-mounted and configurable for a range of sizes and market applications, the He-3200 is easily installed in almost any
setting, offering a quick payback and ongoing returns.
The XEBEC He-3200 is based on the company's H-3200 product
platform, modified to remove impurities from Helium. The He-3200 combines patented rotary valve technology
and conventional beaded adsorbents with an optimized PSA cycle to deliver higher
hydrogen recovery performance than conventional PSA systems. The XEBEC He-3200
requires only one-quarter of the space of conventional PSA and, with only two valves, is simpler to operate. The He-3200 provides a compact, economical solution for
the recovery and recycling of helium in leak testing, metals deposition processes and fiber-optic and semiconductor manufacturing facilities.
SGX Solutions Advantages:
