3M™ Speedglas™ Launches New Heavy Duty Adflo Powered Air Welding Respirator

Article By: Australian Welding Supplies (AWS)

The 3M™ Adflo™ powered air purifying respirator (PAPR) has become one of the most popular and widely awarded powered air welding respirators in the world. A slim, robust system designed specifically for welders has now been released in a heavy duty (HD) version to deliver added features and improved performance.

The new 3M™ Adflo™ HD Series features the new super lightweight heavy duty Adflo battery (40% lighter than the previous model) which can extend Adflo battery operating time to 12 hours. This can give the welder an extra four (4) hours over the standard PAPR systems.

The Speedglas HD powered air respirator series also features the new one hour rapid charge. This allows the welder to charge the heavy duty PAPR battery from 0% to 80% capacity in approximately one hour. The new Adflo PAPR HD system is available with the following 3M™ Speedglas™ Welding Helmets which all feature the new 3M™ Speedglas™ Welding Lens 9100XXi with Speedglas TrueView for crisp colour and clarity.

Existing 3M Adflo powered air respirator customers can upgrade to the lighter HD respirator with rapid charge by purchasing an Adflo battery upgrade kit that includes the all new Adflo HD battery pack and charger. View the new series by clicking this link
