Helium details


Helium is a natural, non-flammable and harmless gas, which if simple instructions are followed is easy to use. The following safety and operating instructions MUST be practiced every time this balloon inflator is attached to a cylinder. All caution statements must be strictly followed; Failure to adhere to these instructions may result in personal injury or property damage.

Caution. This helium balloon inflator is designed to fill balloons quickly and safely. Exercise extreme caution when handling pressurised gas cylinders.


Cylinder care

Secure the cylinder to be used so that it will not fall over. The best option is to use a specially designed cylinder stand or cylinder trolley.

Rip off the plastic cap from the cylinder outlet and inspect the cylinder valve for thread damage, dirt, dust, oil or grease

Crack open the cylinder valve quickly (1/4 turn) prior to use, this will remove any foreign matter from the inside of the valve port


If the cylinder valve is opened too much without the cylinder being secured it may fall over due to the force of the gas escaping.

Always stand to the side of the cylinder when completing this operation. DO NOT stand in front of the valve when completing this operation

Make sure that no other person is surprised or affected by the escaping gas or the noise of the operation

  • DO NOT move the cylinder with the inflator connected

  • DO NOT drop or strike the cylinder or inflator

  • DO NOT store in direct sunlight or apply heat


Attaching the inflator to the helium cylinder

Ensure that the O ring on the inlet of the inflator is in place, and that it is not damaged and attach inflator to the cylinder by turning the thread or hand tight clockwise into the cylinder valve thread.

Never use grease or oil under any circumstances on either the cylinder valve or the inflator seal

Open the valve anti-clockwise slowly or the sudden rush of released cylinder pressure may make your inflator defective.

Check all connections for leaks before filling balloons. Put the neck of the balloon over the rubber nozzle, hold the balloon firmly, gently bend the nozzle to inflate the balloon and release when desired balloon size is reached. (Use the brass push valve for foil balloons as appropriate)

Removing your inflator from the cylinder

Make sure that the cylinder valve is fully turned off

Release the pressure from the inflator by pushing or bending the balloon-filling nozzle of your inflator

Turn your regulator or hand tight in an anti-clockwise and continue until the inflator is fully disengaged

Inflate balloons no earlier than two hours before function,

as latex balloons will start to deflate after 8 hours

Do's & Don'ts to keep you safe when using helium

         Read the safety precautions on the cylinder neck label before using helium.

         Always store helium cylinders in a well-ventilated area and secure it in an upright position so that they cannot fall over damaging the equipment and things around it.

         Check all connections for leaks before filling balloons.

         Always use a regulator and valve supplied by BJE Cellar gases that is designed for balloon filling operations.

         Close the cylinder valve after each use and when the cylinder is empty.

         Clearly label faulty cylinders with fault and return to our depot as soon as possible.

         Do not allow anyone to breathe helium from cylinders or from filled balloons, although not poisonous it can result in asphyxiation.

         Do not leave cylinders unattended so that they can be used inappropriately.

         Do not allow children or any unauthorised persons to handle cylinders or use balloon-filling equipment.

         Only Transport helium cylinders in a well-ventilated vehicle preferably open back vehicles if possible.

         Never transport the cylinder with the filling nozzle attached, as this could cause damage and will be charged for.

         Use a cylinder hand truck to move cylinders where required.

         Never place cylinder where it could come into contact with an electrical circuit.

The above table is for your guidance to help you decide the right gas cylinder for the amount of balloons you need to inflate. It shows the average number of balloons that can be expected from each size cylinder when the balloons are fully inflated to the sizes shown. All quantities are approximate and based on 10-inch latex balloons. Always order more gas then you need to account for over inflation and the occasional burst balloon, which will mean loss of gas. Remember that a 10 inch balloon filled to 12 inches uses twice the gas

Helium is the gas used in balloons to make them float; it does not react with other gases it is inert, non-flammable and perfectly safe to use.

Terms & Conditions of Hire

If you are picking up the cylinder yourself we will require a cash deposit. Your deposit is refunded on the safe return of the hire equipment. The gas cylinder and filling nozzle remain the property of BJE Cellar gases. Damage or loss of the cylinder or kit may result in loss of deposit.

Balloon Gas (Helium) Properties

Helium (Chemical Formula He) is an inert, colourless, odourless, and tasteless gas but can cause asphyxiation and death in confined, poorly ventilated areas, pure helium must never be inhaled. Helium cylinders are specially marked; be sure you are using the correct equipment for the appropriate application. It is non-toxic and non-flammable. Heliumís non-combustibility and buoyancy make it the most suitable gas for balloons. Helium is less dense than any other known gas, except hydrogen, and is about one-seventh the density of air. There are no known toxicological effects or ecological damage caused by this product.
