A+A 2009- Helmet Integrated Systems – Stand B73, Hall 3

Manufactured by Helmet Integrated Systems Ltd, the new Pureweld powered air and airline-supplied respirators are said to combine an EN397-certified safety helmet with an integrated welding shield to provide a new level of personal protection for welding applications.

By combining respiratory, eye, face and head protection in one head-mounted unit, the Pureweld is described as simple to use and prevents the need for belt-mounted power/filter units, trailing airlines, or supply hoses.

The Pureweld ESM incorporates an electronic systems management system, which monitors filter and battery life and maintains a constant minimum flow rate of 170 lpm, says the company.

It claims that a choice of high-efficiency filters provide extended service life, which far exceeds that of other filters available for use with welding respirators.

For welding applications that require an air-supplied helmet, the Pureweld ABS is fitted with the same faceshield and welding shield as the Pureweld ESM. However, with the ABS, the air is supplied via a waistbelt-mounted constant-flow regulator, which is said to provide a variable flow up to 250 lpm.
