The Importance of Caring for Welding Helmets
The bottom line is that air fed welding helmets should be considered a worthwhile investment and it is important to take proper care of them, if you want them to keep taking care of you. This means knowing when to replace the PAPR filter, in order that metal particles don’t enter the lungs.
You can pick up Jackson multi view inner and outer helmet lenses at Foster Industrial in packs of ten, so you should always find it easy to stay prepared. If welding helmets are in almost constant use (or are regularly used for heavy duty industrial welding), it is also a good idea to carry disposable sweat bands and face seals, because they can become grubby after a while.
