Heavy-Duty Protection from Welding Fumes and Particulates

ESAB Welding & Cutting Products offers its Savage A40 PAPR with Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) technology. The helmets are designed for situations where welding fumes and particulates are a concern, such as for some cored wires, working in confined or poorly ventilated spaces and for protecting operators from hexavalent chromium fumes, which are generated from stainless steel, chrome alloys and chrome-coated metals.

The Savage A40 PAPR has three settings that adjust airflow between 170 and 230 l/min. to suit the environment and application. It operates at a quiet 70 dB and features a high-capacity, lithium-ion rechargeable battery that offers up to eight hours of performance between charges.

"Savage A40 PAPR has a two-stage replaceable filtration cartridge that meets NIOSH certification and removes 99.9% of airborne particles," said Kevin Beckerdite, Global Product Manager-PPE, ESAB. "As an extra measure of safety, we added visual and audible alarms to signal low airflow."

Savage A40 PAPR offers a 3.93" x 1.96" viewing area for a wider field of vision. Its 1/1/1/2 optical-class lens features ESAB's ultra-clear true-color technology for increased weld pool clarity and enhanced definition. Additional features include four light sensors, providing a high response, especially when welding out-of-position, and 9-13 shade knob.

Welders can stay more productive with Savage's externally activated Grind Button, while sensitivity and delay controls inside the helmet allow users to adjust the response to various welding conditions.
