Save money: Recycling helium costs a fraction of the cost of purchasing liquid helium.
Control Supply: Always have liquid helium on hand without worrying about delivery scheduling or shortages.
Help the Environment: Recycling helium preserves a finite resource and reduces the need for further helium extraction.
Easy and Modular: Recycling systems are easily adaptable to your specific instruments and can be expanded if and when your helium needs grow.
Case Study: Research
"The small liquefiers are easy to use and can deliver 500-600 liters per week to satisfy our institution's needs."
Case Study: Medical
"Quantum Design was able to help us become more independent from our helium suppliers and avoid the high prices for liquid helium."
Our experts will walk you through the helium recycling solutions that will work for you, and will help make sure your site is prepared.
We will install all the components at your facility and verify the performance on site.
We offer a full digital manual, plus training videos. Our installation engineer will also familiarize you with your new equipment.
We will make sure your system continues to operate at peak performance.
Free up funding for other uses.
Our high-efficiency, mobile liquefiers have 160 and 250 liter capacities and provide from 25+ to 35+ liters/day depending on the model chosen.
Our helium purifier provides ultra-pure helium gas and is fully automated so that it requires minimal user attention.
The Back Pressure Controller provides the ultimate in pressure stability for sensitive instruments, making sure that your helium recycling system will not affect measurement accuracy.
Quantum Design liquefiers are mobile and easy to move around your laboratory to make transferring of liquid helium more convenient than ever. Liquefiers are doorway- and ramp-friendly, and the transfer process is as easy as transferring from your current storage dewars.
Quantum Design offers various financing plans for those wishing to take control of their helium supply but are unable to obtain up-front funding for equipment. Financing is provided through Wells Fargo Bank and applications can often be approved within 24-48 hours. If interested, just mention this option to a sales team member during the quoting process.
For those wishing to take control of their helium supply without owning the equipment, Quantum Design offers a lease program through Wells Fargo. Applications can often be approved within 24-48 hours. This option provides the most convenience in terms of equipment upkeep and maintenance. If interested, ask about our leasing plan when talking to a sales team member during the quoting process.
If you can obtain funding to purchase a helium recovery system outright than this is usually the easiest purchasing option. In many cases ROI occurs within 4-5 years, after which your helium supply will always be available at a fraction of the cost of purchasing liquid helium.
