CYLINDER SAFETY AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
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.
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
KEEP THE CYLINDER VALVE CLOSED WHEN NOT USING THE INFLATOR
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
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 JESP 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. Helium’s 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.
Any information that is shown here was correct at the time of writing. JESP gases accept no liability for injury or damage resulting from its use.

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
Subject to a cylinder refill agreement charge if no empty gas cylinder is available for exchange
