Helium gas – also known as balloon gas – is inert, non-flammable, colourless, odourless and tasteless. Useful for a range of purposes such as inflating balloons, you can buy helium gas tanks and cylinders from dedicated providers like Supagas.
Supagas offers a range of helium cylinder sizes: CL size (0.6m3), D size (1.2m3), E size (3.5m3), G size (9.1m3) and 12 Pack (153m3). You can hire a new cylinder, get a helium refill or dehire a depleted cylinder.
Helium gas can be used for:
If you’re wondering where to buy helium, you can rent and exchange helium gas cylinders at a wide selection of Supagas locations right around Australia. Supagas has been your local gas supplier since 1968, and we pride ourselves on exceptional delivery and customer service.
