Miller Electric Mfg. Co. has added a hard hat option to its current powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR) line. The hard hat is paired with Titanium Series™ auto-darkening welding helmets, which feature InfoTrack™ digital lens technology.
The respirators protect against hazardous welding fumes, such as hexavalent chromium, zinc, aluminum, and manganese. They have an assigned protection factor of 25 and are NIOSH 42 CFR 85-certified.
The new hard-hat head assembly is ANSI Z89.1 2009-certified, Type 1, Class C or G. The hard hat addition is suitable for welding applications in construction, manufacturing, oil/gas, and shipbuilding.
