AirFORCE Fresh Air set: new fresh air set (PAPR)

Inhalation and exposure to welding fumes may cause irritation to eyes and skin, nausea, headaches, dizziness and chronic injury to airways, lungs and nervous system. Such symptoms can sometimes reveal themselves weeks, months or even years later. Therefore, wearing a welding helmet with a fresh air system during welding is a must for every welder!

Work safely and healthily with the AirFORCE Fresh Air set

As an addition to the FORCE programme personal protection products, Translas has introduced the AirFORCE Fresh Air Set. With this Fresh Air set welders can protect themselves against harmful welding rays and welding fumes. The AirFORCE Fresh Air Set consists of a FORCE-800 welding helmet and an AirFORCE Fresh Air unit. The FORCE-800 welding helmet is a high standard and comfortable welding helmet and is available with an auto-darkening welding filter 820S or 830S.

AirFORCE Fresh Air system

The AirFORCE Fresh Air unit is a light and compact filter system in a solid casing, connected to the FORCE-800 welding helmet. The fan in the fresh air system is driven by a carbon brush-free motor. This motor is not only quiet but also lasts three times as long as a conventional motor.


A rechargeable battery provides power to the fan motor. Depending on the contamination of the filter, the battery lasts 9 hours. An acoustic sound gives a warning signal when the battery voltage is too low. A separate charging station is supplied with the AirFORCE Fresh Air unit.


When the main filter is polluted, it must be replaced. The unit has an alarm which is a vibration signal and a bleeping sound, accompanied by all three warning lights flashing. The degree of saturation of the main filter will not affect the airflow. The main filter is protected on the outside by a spark trap and a pre-filter. Only the pre-filter can be cleaned with compressed air.

The lightweight fresh air unit is worn with a belt around the waist so that the unit and the air hose do not cause any obstruction during welding. The inside of the belt is designed with a soft shock absorbent material. The extra wide belt ensures that the carried weight of the unit is distributed over the full width and does not apply pressure to the lower back region during use.
