3M launches lighter, faster Adflo HD respirator for welders
3M has brought out a heavy-duty version of its Adflo powered air purifying respirator (PAPR) for welders.
The new Adflo HD series features a heavy-duty battery which is 40 percent lighter than the previous model but which can extend battery operating time to 12 hours — giving the welder an extra four hours over the standard systems.
In addition, the HD battery can now be recharged from zero to 80 percent capacity in about one hour.
The new Adflo PAPR HD system is available with the following helmets through AWS:
- 3M Speedglas Welding Helmet 9100XXi Air
- 3M Speedglas Flip-Up Welding Helmet 9100XXi FX Air
- 3M Speedglas Flip-Up Welding & Safety Helmet 9100XXi MP Air
The company says that existing Adflo customers can upgrade to the lighter HD system with rapid charge by buying an upgrade kit.
All of the helmets above feature 3M’s Speedglas Welding Lens 9100XXi with Speedglas TrueView for crisp colour and clarity.
