Filling Balloons with Helium
Thursday, 5 January 2006 | Admin
WARNING: You should never deliberately inhale helium. It is an asphyxiate and can cause suffocation, even death. Never allow children or any unauthorised person to handle the cylinder or to use balloon filling equipment. If transporting the cylinder by car, ensure that the vehicle is well ventilated and the cylinder is well secured.
Ensure cylinders are stored in well ventilated areas and away from direct heat. Never open the cylinder valve without fitting an inflator nozzle first. Then proceed to open the valve slowly.
Always wear eye protection when filling balloons.
When inflating balloons, always point the balloon and inflator nozzle away from you. Remember to close the cylinder valve after use.
