Helium BIP® Cylinder

Ultra-high purity gas with unrivalled specifications

Air Products’ Experis® speciality gases range includes a number of UHP (ultra-high purity) helium products with specifications intended to deliver peace of mind whatever your application.

The BIP® range was developed to eliminate the root cause of some of the biggest problems encountered by analysts working in gas chromatography:- the removal of the critical impurities (oxygen and moisture) from carrier gases, detector gas, make up gas, and instrument fuel gases.

Each cylinder has a self contained purification system consisting of a specially designed valve and purifier bed, enabling it to deliver one of the purest ultra-high purity gases on the market today.

BIP® Helium is an ideal carrier gas as the impurity levels are less than 10 ppb for oxygen, 20 ppb for moisture and 10 ppb for total hydrocarbons which has significant benefits for GC analytical equipment and the analysis itself including reduced baseline noise and lower limits of detection.


Specialist analytical and industrial applications require an assurance of gas purity at the point of use. BIP® gases guarantee the highest levels of purity. Ultra low impurity levels secure the accuracy of your results.

BIP® technology means failsafe analyses for all GC users, as the gases have impurity levels as low as 10 ppb THC, 10 ppb of O and 20 ppb of HO. Every gas cylinder fitted with BIP® technology gives GC users the benefit of an improved baseline, better peak separation, lower detection limits and greater sensitivity. In addition to greater lifetime for columns and detectors and minimal maintenance.

BIP® gas is the zero-defect gas.

Benefits of BIP® Technology as a Carrier Gas

Better Analysis

BIP® technology gives you gases that are up to 300 times purer than conventional carrier gases

Lower Costs

Lower oxygen and moisture contents can extend working life of GC columns. Saving on replacement costs, and less analytical downtime

Elimination Of External In-Line Purifiers

No initial purchase or maintenance costs, and less analyser downtime

Perfect Carrier Gas For Gas Chromatography (GC)

Unrivalled low O₂ and H₂O impurities reduces baseline noise and column bleed, and improve analytical measurements

Environmentally Friendly

BIP® purifiers are regenerated at the end of their service life

More Useable Gas Per Cylinder

BIP® technology captures trace moisture that usually desorbs from traditional cylinders as pressure reduces

“Why is gas purity critical for my analytical application?”

Some impurities can damage analytical instruments and affect accuracy of results. Oxygen and moisture are critical impurities in many analytical techniques.
