Miller Electric Manufacturing Co. introduces the new LPR-100 Half Mask Respirator with an exclusive patented low profile design to fit under most welding helmets. The new LPR-100 Half Mask, part of the Arc Armor line of welding protective products, is a NIOSH-certified design that filters out 99.97 per cent of airborne particles and oil aerosols, the company said. The product also features an Assigned Protection Factor (APF) of 10, and provides industry best comfort for the user. A four-point head strap adjustment allows the mask to be customized to most head shapes and sizes, and a large non-return exhaust valve further reduces heat build-up and user fatigue. The LPR-100 Half Mask Respirator protects the user while providing a wide field of vision and an unobstructed view for optimal safety and productivity. The replaceable pleated filter provides a larger surface area that reduces breathing resistance and extends filter life. The mask is lightweight and is constructed of medical grade material that is odor, latex and silicone free, the company said. The LPR-100 Half Mask is ideal for welders, but the mask is appropriate respiratory protection in any industrial and manufacturing settings, as well as small shop or home applications when breathing protection is needed.
