Helium Quench Pipe Systems

Helium quench pipe systems are essential in any MRI scanner installation.

The magnets in the MRI scanners are cooled with liquid helium. As helium turns to gas and expands rapidly at temperatures above -260° C the system requires a safety valve and quench pipe to ensure that in the unlikely event of the helium turning to gas it will be safely dispersed outside the building.

Medical Gases engineer and install quench pipes, designed to withstand extreme cold, to provide this safety measure. We have recently installed a quench pipe system at Papworth Hospital. Read more.
