Care and Maintenance: Welding Helmets

You only have one pair of eyes and one set of lungs. A welding helmet with suitable respiratory protection for your specific application will go a long way in protecting these valuable organs. But, is buying a welding helmet and respirator system all you need to do and what steps can you take to protect the equipment that protects you?  Most auto welding helmets have cover lenses to protect the inside and outside of the auto-darkening lens. You will notice a purple coating on almost all auto-darkening lenses. This purple coating is a UV and IR filter which means it blocks Ultra Violet and Infra Red light from reaching your eyes. The only l...

Why are Welding Lenses Green?

When you look through a welding helmet's welding lens everything appears green. To understand why this is the case we will start with what a welding lens does to the different elements of light created by an arc. The light created by a welding arc is made up of ultra-voilet (UV), infrared (IR) and visible light. UV and IR are very harmful and are what cause "welder's flash" and damage to your eyes. Every auto-darkening welding lens has a purple coating, this is a UV/IR filter and it blocks out UV/IR light. This protection remains constant, whether the welding lens is on, off, dark or light. The only light that passes through the welding le...

Helmet Welding: A common misconception

Do five wheels make a car go faster???  If having more wheels made a car faster, safer or handle better, then one could reasonably expect that every car would come standard with five, six or even ten wheels. In reality though, we all know that a car only requires four wheels to perform at its best.   The positioning of the four wheels on a car is also extremely important. For example, if a car manufacturer positioned all four wheels on one side, it wouldn’t do much good would it?   Photo sensors on a welding helmet are much like wheels on a car. More does not necessarily equal better.   Photo sensors detect the light from the arc and trigg...

Understanding Welding Fume

WITH the correct PPE, arc welding mild steel in an outside area, or in a well ventilated workshop, is not a problem, but when welding more exotic materials that's when fabricators and co-workers should take special care. Arc welding fumes contain very small particles from the consumables base metal and base metal coating. The substances in the fumes change depending on what is in the electrode and the base metal including any coatings. The most common compounds in the fumes when welding mild steel, for example, are complex oxides of iron, manganese and silicon. The short term effects of these compounds, if inhaled, are temporary and in...
