FOR heavy-duty protection from welding fumes and particulates when welding, gouging and grinding, ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has introduced the new ESAB PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) system.
This is suitable to hire to anyone who wishes to protect themselves from welding fumes without having the expenditure of buying.
The ESAB PAPR features a P3 filter and pre-filter to remove particulates and the latest control technology, allowing the operator to adjust air flow between 170 and 220 L/min to suit the environment and application. As an extra measure of safety, it incorporates both visual and audible alarms to alert the operator in the event of a blocked filter or low battery. Compatible helmets include the SENTINEL™ A50 for Air, G30 Air, G40 Air and G50 Air and Warrior™ Tech.
Designed with robust construction for all heavy-duty welding applications, the ESAB PAPR weighs a comfortable 1kg. Its Li-Ion battery pack provides up to eight hours of operation at an air flow rate of 220L/min, and an LED indicator makes it easy for operators to see and set flow rates; there is also an LED indicator for battery charge.
