TR1 Single Helium Transfiller Unit With this unit, the safe and efficient transfer of helium from large cylinders to small ones becomes a no-brainer. Leave your huge, heavy tank at the shop and load the lightweight one and go. Be sure to request the complimentary instructional DVD, available in both English and Spanish.

84601 Balloon Sizer This is the ULTIMATE in balloon professional’s tools. This machine is the fastest, most efficient, and accurate sizer available in the market. Operating with air, helium, or nitrogen, if you blow a lot of balloons for deliveries or decorating, this investment will pay for itself.
Precision sizing is available at the tap of a foot pedal. This machine sizes both round and non-round latex balloons. If your business calls for air-filled sculptures, arches, columns, garlands, murals, and walls, this is the inflator for you. If you plan to branch into drops, then consider this investment.
Helium-filled Foil Balloons
Foil balloons are manufactured from nylon and polyethylene. The manufacturing process is as follows: the polyethylene is extruded onto the nylon and heat sealed to create the finished product– a foil balloon. When filled with helium, foil balloons measuring 17" and larger will float. SELF-SEALING VALVES
Foil balloons of today (sold through b + B ® ) are manufactured with self-sealing valves. Any balloon 17" and larger contains a self-sealing mechanism embedded in the balloon. Most are found in the tail, but in some instances of large
oversized shapes, the inflation point and mechanism are in an obscure place.

DO THE RIGHT THING Safety first
w Always use balloon weights. w Avoid releasing helium-filled foil balloons into the environment. When the party, event, or celebration is over, dispose of balloons properly. w Keep un-inflated or popped latex out of the hands of small children. Choking is a hazard and adult supervision is mandatory with young children. w Never use metallic ribbon on helium-filled foil or latex balloons. If released into the air, the ribbon could cause electrical failure if caught in power lines.
When inflating a foil balloon, at the point when the proper pressure is at the fill level, the auto shut-off will emit a sound (similar to “puffff”) indicating that the balloon is full. When released from the inflator/regulator, the valve will intuitively close and the balloon is now sealed. As an added measure, you may want to lightly press with your fingers over the area on the tail as an added assurance.
