Miller Electric Mfg. Co. added a hard hat option to its current Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) line.

The hard hat is paired with Titanium Series auto-darkening welding helmets, which feature exclusive InfoTrack digital lens technology. PAPRs provide excellent respiratory protection from hazardous welding fumes, such as hexavalent chromium, zinc, aluminum and manganese, found in some welding environments. All Miller PAPR units have an Assigned Protection Factor of 25 and are NIOSH 42 CFR 85 certified. The new hard hat head assembly is ANSI Z89.1 2009 certified, Type 1, Class C or G. The hard hat addition is ideal for welding applications in construction, manufacturing, oil/gas, shipbuilding and other industries where hard hat use is required.

The Miller PAPR system features a lightweight blower unit — over a pound lighter than competitive units — as well as load-bearing shoulder straps that evenly distribute the system’s weight for optimal comfort. Dual air speeds allow users to adjust the volume of air to maximize comfort. Additional blower unit benefits include audible and vibrating alarms (to alert users to low battery or restricted airflow), a lightweight lithium battery that provides eight hours of use, and a low profile design that helps reduce interference. A high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter captures airborne particles as small as 0.3 microns, protecting users from the hazardous dust, metal fumes and mists that are common in welding environments.

Head assemblies available include the Titanium 9400 Helmet, Titanium 9400i Helmet, Hard Hat with no helmet, Hard Hat with Titanium 9400 Helmet and Hard Hat with Titanium 9400i Helmet. The Titanium Series welding helmets feature a large viewing area (9.22 square inches), aluminum heat shield that protects the lens in high amperage welding applications and a silver shell that reflects radiant heat. The exclusive Miller InfoTrack technology further differentiates the Titanium Series by allowing the user to track arc time while under the hood, as well as providing a digital clock display for alarms/timers. The Titanium 9400i features an integrated grinding shield with a 180-degree field of vision. All head assemblies feature a flame-resistant head seal and cinch closure to keep welding fumes out of the breathing zone.
