Optrel and Willson, brands of the Bacou-Dalloz Group, have combined their expertise to develop a welding helmet that is equipped with powered air respiratory protection to enable welders to work in complete safety.
The Optrel OS100 blower unit offers optimal protection against metal fumes and dust emitted during welding operations, plus the Optrel satellite helmet provides full protection against IR/UV radiation, and is rated to high impact standards.
The OS100 delivers a constant air flow to the welding helmet, providing a cooling effect with a switch that allows users to direct the airflow to both the mouth and forehead area, or just the mouth area, depending on the user’s preference.
Air is purified by a particle filter powered by a fan with a rechargeable battery, and for maximum safety, dual alarm indicators audible and visual are triggered whenever the air flow is insufficient, battery is low, or the filter is clogged or missing.
A short air duct on the welding helmet provides a lightweight alternative with increased mobility, and the flame resistant air supply hose is also short, reducing the risk of snag upon surrounding structures.
The OS100 is approved to AS/NZS 1716 and AS/NZS 1337.
