  • 7 Steps about How to Inflate a Helium Balloon Using Latex Inflators

    Helium balloons exist almost everywhere there is a celebration. And it’s simple too!

    Here are 7 easy and quick steps that will help you to inflate helium balloons on your own.

    1. Get a helium tank: Helium is required to fill in the balloons. You can either rent a tank or buy one. Renting is a good option if you rarely party. But if you party hard often, it is better to buy one and use all the helium in the cylinder till it lasts.
    2. Buy the balloons: Whoa! There is a huge variety out there. But don’t buy the normal rubber birthday balloons as they won’t stay afloat for long. Instead, the shiny mylar balloons of those made of latex would make a better choice.
    3. Place the valve over the nozzle of helium tank: Ensure that the valve end fits well into the open end of the balloon so that there is no leakage. Also, check the balloon for any holes.
    4. Switch on the balloon inflator to let the gas out: Now, you can allow the latex/mylar balloon filler to escape the gas at required pressure.
    5. Observe the inflation & stop when the balloon is full: Keep an eye on the balloon & check how much blown up you want it to be. Most of the mylar balloon inflators automatically shut off when the balloon is stretched to its maximum.
    6. Remove the balloon systematically: This would require a bit of diligence. You need to pinch the end of the balloon and stretch it to take it off the valve.
    7. Tie the string: There are balloon inflators that tie the balloons for you. However, you can also tie it on your own. Preferably, tie some sort of weight to the balloon so that it doesn’t fly off.

    It is really simple, isn’t it?

  • Check Whether your Helium Tanks are Refillable

    Helium tanks are industrial tanks made of aluminum containing helium – a chemically inert and non-flammable gas.  The tanks are an everyday essential for balloon inflators and are usually refillable. However, in the recent times, it is observed that some helium tanks are not refillable which is really not feasible. It is impossible to pile up empty helium tanks every time. Another important thing happens at times – they ask you to perform hydro testing.

    Let’s check out why hydro testing is important –

    When you are about to refill your helium tank, it is of vital importance to check for any hairline fractures in the metal body. Hydro testing is a process that puts the tank under high-pressure conditions. So, if the tank was damaged some way, the test indicates the danger and warns you not to refill it.

    Sometimes, you may find a star and a plus sign beside the date. The star mark indicates that you can refill the tank every 10 years and plus allows you to add more pressure to the helium tank.

    What if there is no valve to tell you that you need to refill –

    Well, if you don’t have valves, you need to keep a track of the balloons you have used as there is a general measure of how many balloons can be blown by a helium tank. A large tank fills up to 125 18” metallic balloons or 110 11” latex balloons. So, if you have filled 2 bags of large balloons or 4 bags of standard size balloons, know that you are close to refill. A better option is to purchase a valve to indicate you the pressure in the tank. This way, you will be able to read the tank pressure and save you from running out of helium at an emergency hour.

    Experts suggest to buying refillable helium tanks as they are more feasible and easy to use and refill. Helium is an inert gas and can be stored conveniently in a well-ventilated, cool and dry place. It is perfectly safe to store helium in these aluminum cylinders as it is rust and corrosion resistant.
