The Esab Sentinel A50 Welding Helmet just got more versatile with the addition of an Air Version. This offers full respiratory protection to the welder.
The helmet itself remains light and comfortable to wear with the same ultra clear true colour lens for a realistic view of your actual weld. A comfortable breathable soft fabric ensures a complete seal against the fume.The principal behind air supplied welding helmets is an air powered blower unit is worn by the welder around his waist which collects and filters the air to very high degree, typically 99.8% purity and delivers this fresh clean air to the welders breathing zone via a short hose to the helmet. The battery powered blower units are rechargeable and depending on type normally will cover an eight hour shift.This method of protection for the welder is highly efficient and ensures welders do not breath in and ingest the many harmful particles found in weld fume. Additional protective measures may need to be in place for other workers exposed to the hazards of weld fume.
The ESAB PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) unit provides 170 litres of clean/ filtered air per minute to give a more pleasant working environment. The unit only weighs 1kg but will still withstand the toughest of environments. The unit is supplied with a P3 filter with an extraordinary filtration capacity. The battery, which have an operating capacity of 8 hours, can be charged separate from the motor unit, hence it can be utilised when working double shifts. The PAPR unit is equipped with an audio low flow alarm and indicates when the battery is running low or when the filter is blocked.
