3M™ Adflo™ Powered Air Respirator

New & Improved

The new, upgraded Adflo™ Powered Air Respirator, with the latest welding helmets and faceshields from 3M, represents a big step forward in welding protection. To improve welding comfort further, the Adflo respirator now has Li-ion type of battery, making the complete device almost 20% lighter.

A slim, robust respirator designed specifically just for welders - and not merely carted over from some bulky industrial respirator design.

Designed for welders
  • Filter cover: holds the user-replaceable spark arrestor, which reduces the risk of filter fires.
  • Prefilter: increases the service life of the particle filter.
  • Particle filter: high efficiency particulate filtration.
  • Gas filter: (A1B1E1 or A2) captures organic, inorganic and acid gases and vapours. Gas filters sold separately.
  • Odour filter: removes unpleasant smells (not needed if a gas filter is installed); sold separately.
  • Li-ion battery: fully charges in 4.5 hours. Expected operating time is 8 hours with new particle filter, new fully-charged battery and a standard airflow.
  • Brushless motor: with an average life three times longer than conventional motors.
  • Filter Indicator: indicates the status of the particle filter.
  • Airflow Plus: for hot, humid jobs, you can increase the airflow from 170 l/min t0 200 l/min with the push of a button.
  • Breathing tube: self-adjusting or heavy-duty rubber.
  • Exclusive airflow pattern: evenly distributes filtered air throughout the entire breathing zone of the helmet. The intelligent turbo unit keeps the airflow rate at a constant, preset level. A diffuser spreads out the airflow pattern for your maximum comfort.
  • Soft, flexible face seal (removed here for clarity): creates a positive pressure environment within the helmet, keeping the surrounding pollutants at bay.
