Miller Electric Mfg. Co. has introduced the new LPR-100 half-mask respirator with a patented low-profile design to fit under most welding helmets. Part of the Arc Armor™ line of welding protective products, the respirator features a NIOSH-certified design that filters out 99.97 percent of airborne particles and oil aerosols. Its assigned protection factor (APF) is 10.
A four-point head strap adjustment allows the mask to be customized to most head shapes and sizes, and a large, nonreturn exhaust valve helps reduce heat buildup and user fatigue, the company states. Featuring a wide field of vision and unobstructed view, the lightweight mask is constructed of medical-grade material that is free of odor, latex, and silicone.
