3M™ Adflo™ Respiratory Systems

With the right type of filter the Adflo respirator effectively protects against both particles and gases – all in one system.

Welders requiring respiratory protection need particle filters to capture metal fumes. In addition they may need gas and vapour filters depending on the type of work and the hazards generated. Harmful gases and vapours may be generated by ultraviolet light from the arc reacting with the air or by the burning of coatings or contamination on the metal.

3M™ Speedglas™ welding shields with 3M™ Adflo™ respirator is a light, compact, all-in-one system. The exclusive "stackable" configuration of the Adflo™ turbo unit means that the gas filter can be stacked onto the particle filter for additional protection from specific organic, inorganic and acidic vapours.

An adaptable system that saves money:
In effect, it is two systems in one, allowing increased user flexibility to adapt to changing welding applications. And you can selectively replace either the particle or the gas filter as needed: you don't need to change both filters at the same time.

Goes into tight spaces:
The Adflo™ respiratory system has no battery cables and no sharp corners. Its slim profile is designed to go into tight spaces.
