Helium recycler

CCNY and ASRC install helium gas recycler to curtail loss of a precious finite resource

Helium gas, most commonly known as the substance used to inflate floating balloons, or as the inhaled party gimmick that alters the human voice to a Munchkin-level pitch, is vital for its many applications in many areas of scientific research and medicine. It is an essential part of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) imaging.
