  • Positive air pressure helmets

    Does any one know of where I can get a positive air pressure welding helmet.

    For some of my close work, it would be very helpful, the fumes some times get bad. I do wear a respirator, but that can help only so much.

    You should be able to get the Hornel helmet with the AdFlo backpack from any number of welding or industrial supply houses.

      Here ya go. Good luck finding it any cheaper, I sure as heck can't. If you do though let me know cause I need one bad for my new job (flux core and carbon arc gouging inside pressure piping for steam generators).

          The more expensive one is the flexveiw version. The auto lense lifts up so its easer to see while seting up and grinding. I've used them both and there extremly comfortable. It's like having a mini air conditioner on your head.

              Just work up some letter head on your computer and buy some business card stock you can run through your printer. Then your a company.
