GENERON's helium recovery membrane systems are ideal for the recovery of helium from natural gas deposits. Helium has the lowest boiling point making it ideal for use in cryogenics, particularly in the cooling of superconducting magnets, like MRI and NMR. Helium is also used in the process of growing crystals to make silicon wafers used in the technology industry.
GENERON® Helium Recovery Systems help achieve high helium recovery and purity. The customized helium recovery membrane® systems are manufactured in our ISO 9000 Certified facility in Houston, TX while the membrane® is fabricated in our Pittsburg, CA facility.
In a typical GENERON® membrane system for helium recovery the feed gas is first filtered to remove any particles and condensate. Helium gas permeates extremely "fast" through the membrane walls. The permeated gas is the helium rich product stream with purities in the upper 90% range. The "slower" permeating gases are collected in the non-permeate ("retentate").
