Messer delivers helium for Siemens

By Gerald Ondrey |

In the coming year, Messer Group GmbH (Sulzbach, Germany; www.messergroup.com) will be delivering helium to Siemens Healthcare in Erlangen, Germany, for use in the production of magnetic resonance imaging equipment. Siemens is one of the leading producers of magnetic resonance imaging equipment worldwide for medical diagnostic use in hospitals and doctors’ practices. This equipment permits patient tomography without the need for x-rays or gamma radiation. The liquid helium is required to cool the superconducting magnets in the tomography equipment, thereby maintaining the powerful magnetic field that imaging requires. Messer, a specialist in industrial gases, will deliver the helium from its location in Austria. In Gumpoldskirchen, near Vienna, Messer operates the largest helium tank storage facility, with a capacity of 113,000 L; from there, companies throughout Europe are supplied with helium, in both liquid and gas forms. Messer has a long-term supply contract with Cryor, a Russian company, and this provides Messer direct access to one of the most reliable sources of helium in the world. This certainty of supply is one of the main reasons that moved Siemens to enter into a cooperation agreement with Messer.
