PAPR system provides protection from welding fume and particulates

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products has introduced a new PAPR system to provide heavy-duty protection from welding fume and particulates.

The ESAB PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) 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 220L/min to suit the environment and application. For extra 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 1kg. Its Li-Ion battery pack provides up to 8h operation at an air flow rate of 220L/min. An LED indicator makes it easy for operators to see and set flow rates; there is also an LED indicator for battery charge. - Tel: 0330 8080442 - E-mail:
