    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 light that passes through this filter is visible light that can be controlled by way of variable shade selection. Therefore, if the purple coating is damaged or scratched in anyway it takes away that UV/IR protection and this will allow harmful light to pass through which will lead to arc eye and many other painful conditions. Damaging the coating on the auto darkening welding lens through misuse will also void your warranty with many welding helmet suppliers. Therefore it's important to always monitor the condition of your inside and outside cover lenses - keeping them clean and changing them regularly.

    Welding powered air respirator systems also need a regular consumable change program in place. Most of these welding respirator systems will come with a particle filter and pre-filter as well as gas filters if required. It is essential to monitor the load on these filters regularly to maintain the desired level of protection. Many systems come with particle filter indicators which is a good place to start but nothing beats opening up the system and doing a manual check. If you see break through in the particle filter - change it immediately. Not only will breakthrough ruin the powered air respirator it can cause serious issues for the welder if left unprotected from particles and fume. What kind of issues? Here's just a quick list of diseases or ailments linked to welding fume (if you want more info on this - click on the relevant blog tag):

    • Bronchitis, asthma and pneumonia
    • Emphysema and siderosis
    • Ulcers & kidney damage
    • Heart and skin disease
    • Damage to the central nervous system 
    • Brain damage  

    The pre-filter on your powered air respirator system should be changed regularly to maintain the life of the particle filter. In basic terms: replace the cheap bit to prolong the life of the more expensive bit. The pre-filter will pick up the particles that could lead to breakthrough in your particle filter. Both pre-filter and particle filter must be used at all times in most systems.  

     

    Here we have created a suggested change frequency guide for the Speedglas 9100 welding helmet product series that we feature and supply on this site. Now every welder's application is different and trying to put something like this together is like asking how long is a piece of string. But as an example, a welder who welds 4 hours a day should be looking at replacing his or her gear at the suggested time intervals below. Again, it could be more frequent or less frequent, really depends on you. Our advice would be to use this as a guide and tinker where required.

     

    If you have any questions or would like a change frequency guide for one of our other products - let us know!!
