We are so confident in our quality that our helium systems are warranted for two (2) years after the shipment date. This level of support is virtually unmatched in the industry.


All BAUER helium systems are supported by a nationwide network of BAUER factory-trained technicians. We are available 24/7 for technical and spare parts support. We also offer remote monitoring of your system for early problem detection, to ensure the highest level of uptime and reliability for years to come.

Compressing Helium requires special purpose-built compressors.

Helium gas has a density that is 86% less than air. This means that the compressor has to be built to extremely tight tolerances to effectively compress helium gas without excessive blow-by. Furthermore, helium releases large amounts of heat when compressed, which the compressor must be able to absorb and shed. Therefore, for larger helium compressors, BAUER uses water cooling for the compressor for increased cooling efficiency.

Typical helium applications include recovery and compression systems for liquid cooling used in research institutions, particle accelerators, nuclear medicine, aerospace, and military missile applications. Helium recovery and compression is also used in general industrial applications, commercial merchant gas filling plants, heliostat applications, and helium mining.
