The new Allegro EZ AIR Flex Grinding/Welding PAPR from Allegro Industries (Piedmont, SC) is a complete particulate system intended for industrial applications where combined respiratory, eye and face protection are required. This lightweight welding helmet features a durable flip-up visor to expose a grind shield below that maintains respiratory protection so workers can continue grinding or inspecting welds. Additionally:
- It complies with ANSI Z87.1+ and CAN/CSA Z94.3 for face-shield/eye protection, is CE certified, and is NIOSH approved.
- Weighing under 3 lbs. total, this complete system features a motorized, Lithium-ion battery operating system that supplies a constant supply of fresh, filtered air over the user’s face.
- At an APF level of 25, it creates optimal protective pressure inside the respirator head top keeping away particulates (dust, steel, manganese, stainless steel, galvanized steel, chromium, cadmium, lead and ozone).
- Recommended applications are welding, assembly, facility maintenance, grinding, machine operations, painting and sanding.
