A: Probably too late for the original poster, but hopefully this is useful to future inquiries. Helium is a non-flammable compressed gas, and as such is categorized as a Division 2.2 hazardous material in the United States and Division 2.2 dangerous good in El Salvador. Such articles can be offered as cargo on aircraft, but cannot be brought on board by passengers nor offered in checked baggage. There are certain exceptions (see 49 CFR 175.10) but helium for balloons is not among those exceptions.
A: Although the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) does not specify helium tanks, it refers to campers' propane tanks, et al., as follows: "Empty propane or gas cylinders are allowed in checked or carry-on bags as long as our officers can see inside." In other words, you would have to remove the valve and regulator/inflator, which, of course, would mean that the helium would escape! So, the answer would seem to be, "You cannot take this or any other kind of closed cylinder on board."
A: You should probably contact the airlines with this question.
A: yeah you can for sure
A: Today I was able to fill 20 of the 50 12" balloons I have
A: Hello, and thank you for your question. Our standard tank is designed to fill 30 nine-inch balloons, or 16 eleven-inch or mylar balloons. Our Jumbo tank is designed to fill 50, nine-inch balloons or 27, eleven-inch or mylar balloons. If you have any additional questions, please contact us at: BalloonTime@WothingtonIndustries.com or via Facebook Messenger. Thank you.
A: No it’s not refillable. After you ran out of helium all you can do is to recycle it. (What a waste. I know)
A: No it is not refillable
A: The instructions say to remove all air from the tank, first, using the nozzle as if you were blowing up additional balloons (I suggest you do this in a well-ventilated area, as direct exposure to helium is considered a potential health threat), then, punch a hole in the unit where specified (it's a ring near the top of the unit), then circle the punctured rink with a permanent marker and write the word "EMPTY" above it. You may NOT be able to dispose of it through your regular trash/recyclable pick-ups, so you may be forced to bring it to a local metal recycler/salvager/junk yard, who MAY pay you for whatever the metal (steel) is worth. Or call your local trash/recycle yard to see if they'll accept a delivery (n.b., some will accept such for free, but some may charge you for the privilege).
A: There are instructions on how to recycle it. There’s a spot to puncture a hole with a hammer and screwdriver then you use a permanent marker to indicate that it’s been emptied. It’s not that difficult.
A: Yes, the tank says (in Spanish) that it is a mix of air and not less than 80% helium.
A: No I don't believe so
