Respiratory protection for welders

Wednesday, 02 April, 2003 | Supplied by: AWS Pty Ltd

Adflo is a powered respiratory protection system for welders. By leading filtered air into the welding helmet, the user avoids inhaling welding fumes and dust while working.

The system provides a steady stream of filtered air, which also prevents warmth and humidity from entering the inside of the welding helmet.

This enhances comfort, thereby reducing the risk of industrial injury. Adflo is designed, manufactured and marketed by Hornell International AB.

The design is compact and user-friendly. The unit is battery-operated and does not have any wires or sharp corners, which simplifies work in tight spaces. The combined weight of the brushless motor, battery and filter unit is 1150 g.

The unit is fitted to an adjustable ergonomic leather belt. The welder can replace the filter and battery on-site without removing the unit.

The NiMH (nickel metal hydride) battery is rechargeable and lasts 8 hours. The battery has an advanced two-step charger, which rapidly recharges the battery and prevents overcharging.

An electronic control system compensates for the falling battery voltage and provides a steady flow of air at 160 L/min. This can be changed to the Airflow Plus mode of 200 L/min by the simple push of a button.

The system, which is fitted with a spark arrestor, pre-filter and particle filter, also has an information display which shows the current battery charge and air flow level. The same system can be individually customised with an optional odour filter or gas filter according to user requirements.
