The Speedglas Adflo welding respirator system is specially designed to meet welder's needs when used with the Speedglas 9100 respiratory welding helmet series. But which 9100 welding helmet is best for you and how do they differ? I'm sure you have read welding helmet reviews and best welding helmet guides and still haven't found what you are after. Here we break down the Speedglas Adflo 9100XX welding helmet series headtops and have a closer look at which welding helmet is best for you.
The Speedglas Adflo welding helmets come in three different versions - Speedglas 9100 Air, Speedglas 9100 FX Air and Speedglas 9100 MP. All three versions come equipped with the top-of-the-line auto-darkening Speedglas 9100XX welding lens. Speedglas 9100XX is the largest Speedglas welding lens ever and continues Speedglas' legendary tradition of outstanding optical quality with a rating of 1/1/1 - (read more on this). The lens allows you to weld, cut, grind and tack all in one. Outdoor welding and hidden arc are also no problem for this powerful welding lens that reacts down to 1A. Watch this video on the Speedglas 9100 welding lens series for more info (just remember that the Speedglas Adflo versions only come with the 9100XX lens in Australia):
