ESAB is launching the Aristo Air PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) system for operatives undertaking welding, gouging and grinding. Used in conjunction with the Aristo Tech welding helmet, the Aristo Air helps to protect welders from the hazards associated with welding fumes and dust; when used and maintained correctly, the pre-filter and P3 main filter in the Aristo Air system filter out 99.8 per cent of fumes and dust.
Aristo Air is designed to provide heavy duty protection, yet the battery-powered system weighs just 1kg and can therefore be used anywhere. Users can adjust the airflow rate from 170 to 210l/min and the rechargeable Li-ion battery pack provides up to eight hours’ operation at the maximum flow.
Other features of the Aristo Air include audible and visual alarms for ‘blocked filter’ and ‘battery low’, LED indicators for air flow and battery charge, and a wipe-clean membrane switch panel. To ensure that the system is comfortable to wear, the Aristo Air has a wide waist belt and comfort pad.
Each Aristo Air is delivered ready to use, complete with an air hose and Proban hose cover, battery, intelligent charger and filter elements.
ESAB’s Aristo Air PAPR system can be seen in the company’s free PPE and Welding Accessories catalogue, which is available from ESAB Publicity on 0800 3893152 or email . For further information, go to the website at www.esab.co.uk.
