Welding creates fumes. Depending on the ventilation in the work setting, a powered air system is the prudent approach to worker safety. The AirPlus Powered Air System from ArcOne (Taunton, MA) is the third-generation development from the ArcOne 20-year Powered Air-Purifying Respirator (PAPR) program. The AirPlus PAPR system is a motorized, battery-operated system that blows a constant supply of fresh, filtered air over the face and creates a positive pressure inside the respirator head top, keeping out harmful welding fumes and particulates. This system is paired with the AirShield full-coverage grinding visor, designed with durable construction, a large viewing area, sturdy headgear, and quick and easy visor installation and removal. The head top is lightweight and well balanced, and there is a direct flow of air into the helmet through the air-manifold system.
