The 3M Speedglas 9100 FX Air Welding Helmet with the award-winning 3M Adflo Powered Air Purifying Respirator has become one of the most popular PAPR Welding Helmets available. The 9100 FX Air features the Speedglas 9100XXi True-View auto-darkening welding lens with flip-up functionality which reveals a large, curved and clear high impact visor. This flip-up functionality allows the welder to seamlessly switch between welding and grinding tasks while maintaining their powered air welding respiratory protection. The clear visor also allows the welder to set-up, inspect and move around the workplace without the need to remove their face protection or break the positive pressure respiratory seal.

The Speedglas 9100XXi auto-darkening welding lens features unrivaled arc detection, handles all welding applications with multiple modes and when combined with the peripheral side windows gives the welder the largest viewing area currently available. Utilise new True-View optics for precise welding with more colour and contrast.

The new Adflo PAPR system is super lightweight with rapid charge and provides a Required Minimum Protection Factor (RMPF) of 50, meaning that the air the welder breathes is at least 50 times cleaner than the welder would otherwise be breathing unprotected. Step up to the Speedglas 9100 FX Air with Adflo PAPR and experience cooler, cleaner and more comfortable welding.

Product Information

  • 3M Speedglas, In a Class of its Own: Speedglas released the first auto-darkening welding helmet ever and continues to set the benchmark in personal protective equipment and professional welding helmet technology.
  • PPE Made in Sweden: All Speedglas welding helmets are made in Sweden with every lens still checked by hand.
  • Protection from Welding FumeSuper comfortable welding face seal follows the contours of both the helmet and the face to provide a positive pressure seal from pollutants. The exclusive airflow pattern of the respiratory welding mask evenly distributes filtered air throughout the entire breathing zone of the welder.
  • Welding Shield with Huge Clear & Curved Grinding Visor A smooth flip-up function reveals a huge 170x100 mm clear grinding visor with 180 degree vision.
  • Speedglas Welding Lens with True-View 3M Speedglas True-View has literally changed the way welders see, making what you see through the lens appear lighter, more detailed and colourful.
  • Largest Welding Mask Viewing Area Available:The huge Speedglas 9100XXi auto-lens combined with the Speedglas peripheral SideWindows gives you the largest welding shield viewing area available on the market.
  • Speedglas SideWindowsPreviously hidden peripheral hazards (beams, obstacles and other workers) are now visible through two, shade 5 side lenses (conventional shade 13 protection).
  • Highest Optical Rating Speedglas welding helmet series 9100 gives the welder the highest possible optical classification (1/1/1) and is compliant with AS/NZS1338.1.
  • Unrivalled Arc Detection and switching Photo-sensors capable of detecting an arc down to an industry-leading 1 amp with centre sensor for TIG applications.
  • All Welding Applications with Multiple ModesWith shades 3, 5, 8, 9-13 and multiple mode settings you can weld, cut, grind and tack, indoors and outdoors even with a completely hidden arc.
  • Welding Mask with Auto-OnWith Auto-On your welding helmet is instantly ready to weld; programmed to your last used welding setting.
  • Compliant with all relevant Australian & New Zealand StandardsCompliant with Australian & New Zealand Standard AS/NZS1337.1 (high impact face protection), AS/NZS1338.1 (eye protection) and AS/NZS1716 (respiratory protection).
  • Comfort & Ergonomics This harness sets the industry benchmark for comfort and ergonomics. The harness distributes weight perfectly, avoids sensitive areas and allows for complete customisation to your head.
  • The Signature Speedglas Silver FrontThe silver front on a Speedglas auto-darkening welding helmet is not just a design feature, it also reflects heat from the weld keeping you cool and comfortable.
  • Magnification Lens HolderBuilt-in holder for magnifying lenses makes attaching the lens easier and optimises the position for better vision.
  • Speedglas Welding PPE is a long term investment All Speedglas 9100 auto helmets have custom designed multi-function programmed logic chips that minimise the number of discrete surface-mounted components; leading to improved reliability and longevity.
  • Industry Leading Warranty Protection: Speedglas 9100 features a revolving three year warranty. Experience a problem with the welding mask in the first three years and your 3 year warranty protection starts again. Speedglas helmets are built to last.
  • The Adflo Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR)

  • Synonymous with Respiratory Protection for WeldersOne of the most popular PAPR’s in the world, the award-winning Adflo has become synonymous with welder’s powered air protection and provides increased protection and comfort all day long.
  • Because you only have one pair of lungs The 3M Adflo provides a required minimum protection factor of 50 for mechanically and thermally generated particles and conforms to Australian & New Zealand Standard AS/NZS1716 (respiratory protection).
  • Exclusive Adflo airflow patternThe exclusive airflow pattern evenly distributes filtered air throughout the entire breathing zone of the welder. The intelligent PAPR unit keeps the airflow rate at a constant level. A diffuser spreads out the airflow pattern for your maximum comfort.
  • One Hour Rapid Charge Battery with Long LifeThe new Adflo lithium-ion battery charges from 0-80% of its full capacity in approximately one hour and lasts approximately 8-10 hours depending on conditions. Indicators assist the welder in knowing when to change the filters and to charge the battery.
  • Super Light Welding Respirator with Slim Profile On body powered air respiratory protection allows for full-mobility and the slim profile makes the Adflo perfect for use in tight spaces. The system has recently been reduced in weight by a further 15%.
  • Self-Adjusting Breathing HoseThe Quick Release Swivel (QRS) allows for one handed connection and release. The self-adjusting length means the hose is always kept close to the welder to prevent snagging on surrounding objects.
  • Stackable Protection from Welding Fume, Particles and Gases With the right type of filter, the respirator can effectively protect against both particles and gases - an important welding safety feature.
  • Standard & Airflow Plus The respirator airflow is always a constant nominal rate of 170 litres per minute regardless of the battery’s charge or the particle loading of the filter. For hot, humid jobs, you can increase the airflow to 200 litres per minute to reduce welder fatigue and increase your overall comfort and welding safety.
  • Industry Leading Warranty Protection: The Adflo PAPR features a revolving two year warranty. Experience a problem with the system in the first two years and your 2 year warranty protection starts again. Speedglas helmets and Adflo PAPR systems are built to last.
