How to Save Helium With ULTRA HI-FLOAT
60/40 helium inflators are compatible with ULTRA HI-FLOAT treated balloons.
60/40 inflators add a helium/air mixture to the balloon and can provide balloons that will float for several days when treated with ULTRA HI-FLOAT. Because 40% less helium is used, the savings on helium more than pays. Check out our HI-FLOAT with 60 40 Inflators video on YouTube.
Because a 60/40 helium/air mixture is less buoyant than pure helium, less HI-FLOAT will be added than for balloons with pure helium. Refer to the clip guide, and use the restriction clip for the next smaller size balloon.
