Lincoln Electric has introduced the Viking PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) 3350 welding helmet, a complete powered system that draws air fron the envronment through a HEPA filter located on the belt to deliver filtered air in the breathing zone within a premium level Viking auto-darkening welding helmet.
This model, which offers dual airflow speed, is powered by a battery that can last a full eight-hour shift without interruption. A patent-pending adjustable baffling system inside the helmet directs airflow away from the eyes to avoid dryness. The lightweight design of the helmet and belt pack allow for unrestricted movement. The VIKING PAPR is equipped with a 3350 Series Welding Helmet that has a perfect 1/1/1/1 optical clarity rating (EN379).
