Miller Electric Mfg. Co. has extended its Arc Armor™ line of welding protection products with the release of two new welding helmet cooling accessories designed to reduce heat stress.
The CoolBand™ is an integrated headgear cooling system that reduces the temperature under the hood by up to 8 degrees F. It fits into most of the company's Arc Armor helmets, providing up to six hours of continuous cooling on one battery charge. Downward and upward air vents provide constant air movement over the user’s face and head, removing stagnant air and decreasing lens fog.
The CoolBelt™ is a lightweight belt-mounted cooling system that integrates into most of the company's welding helmets. It offers multiple air speeds with directional air controls to provide air movement over the user’s face and head. The system can lower temperatures underneath the hood up to 17 degrees F while also removing stagnant air and reducing lens fog. A rechargeable battery pack provides up to five hours of battery life.
