Autodarkening welding helmet features self-contained personal respirator
Miller Electric Mfg. Co. has added the heavy-duty Titanium 9400i autodarkening welding helmet to its Arc Armor® powered air purifying respirator (PAPR) line. The PAPR units are self-contained personal respirators designed to protect the welder from hazardous welding fumes found in some environments.
The helmet is suitable for heavy industrial welding and grinding applications. The autodarkening cartridge is located in the visor that flips up to expose a clear, integrated grinding shield that provides nearly 180 degrees of ANSI Z87.1-2003-certified vision. The lens provides 9.22 sq. in. of viewing area and four sensors for increased vision and maximum arc detection.
The lens heat shield accommodates high-amperage welding, and shock-absorbing gaskets protect the lens from impacts.
