The Speedglas 9100 MP (Multi-Protection) Welding & Safety Helmet from 3M has been designed to offer five levels of protection: Eye, Face, Head, Respiratory and Hearing (optional accessory). The 9100MP flips up to reveal a large, curved protected visor for enhanced visibility. This protective visor meets EN 166B making it highly suitable for grinding applications. The integrated top shell is made from heat resistant polycarbonate and meets the latest EN 379 standard for industrial safety helmets. An optional high-visibility aluminium fabric reflects hot sunlight and welding heat. 3M Peltor hearing protection can also be added as an option. The 9100 XXi auto darkening lens provides improved optics, which allows you to more readily recognise colours.
With its smart, compact design, the 3M™ Adflo™ Powered Air Respirator is specially designed to meet your welding needs. Its continuous airflow provides filtered air that takes much of the heat and sweat out of welding. By using the Adflo respirator, you get both increased protection and comfort all day long.
The Turbo unit draws air through a spark arrester, pre-filter and particle filter ( and gas filter when used) to reduce respiratory hazards. It then feeds the air, via the breathing tube, into the welding shield. The constant flow of filtered air and the comfortable face seal keep contaminated air outside the shield.
The new Adflo unit features Lithium Ion (Li Ion) batteries, which are more than 40% lighter than the NiMH batteries used in the original model. The lighter battery has the same life time as its predecessor and also benefits from a faster partial charge time.
