Frequently Asked Questions

Are these helmets suitable for use during plasma cutting?

According to the American Welding Society (AWS), these shade 10 helmets are suitable for 100 - 200A plasma cutting applications.

How do I clean and maintain a passive welding helmet?

To maintain a passive welding helmet, you should regularly clean the exterior shell and lens filter. Use a soft cloth or sponge with mild soap and water to remove dirt, dust or debris from the helmet's surface. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or rough materials that could scratch the lens. Additionally, inspect the helmet periodically for any signs of damage and replace worn-out parts as needed.

Are passive welding helmets suitable for overhead welding?

Yes, passive welding helmets can be used for overhead welding. However, working in an overhead position may require additional neck strength and stability to keep the helmet in the proper position and ensure adequate protection.

How to clean & maintain these welding helmets?

  • After each use, wipe the exterior of the helmet with a clean, damp cloth to remove dust and debris.
  • Inspect the lens for any spatter, dirt or scratches. If needed, follow the manufacturer's instructions to remove the lens for cleaning.
  • Clean the lens using a mild soap solution or a specialised lens cleaner. Gently wipe the lens with a soft cloth or lens-cleaning tissue.
  • Check the headgear and straps for any signs of wear or damage. Replace any worn-out or broken parts to ensure proper functionality and comfort.
  • Inspect the helmet shell for cracks, dents, or other damage. If any issues are found, consult the manufacturer for repair or replacement options.
  • Store the welding helmet in a clean and dry area, away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures.
  • Periodically check the battery or power source of the auto-darkening lens and replace it if necessary, following the manufacturer's guidelines.

What safety precautions should I take while using a welding helmet?

  • Wear a welding helmet that fits securely and comfortably on your head to provide maximum protection and allow for unrestricted movement.
  • Select the correct shade level for your welding process and material to protect your eyes from the intense light emitted during welding.
  • Regularly inspect the lens for any cracks, scratches, or damage. Replace a damaged lens to maintain clear visibility and adequate protection.
  • Use additional personal protective equipment such as safety glasses, gloves, and flame-resistant clothing to protect yourself from potential hazards associated with welding.
  • Keep a safe distance from the welding arc to avoid exposure to harmful ultraviolet and infrared radiation. Follow recommended guidelines for the specific welding process you are using.

What factors should I consider while choosing a welding helmet?

  • Ensure the helmet meets industry safety standards for eye and face protection.
  • Select an appropriate lens shade for the type of welding you'll be doing.
  • Choose a helmet with a sufficient and comfortable viewing area for better visibility during welding.
  • Opt for a helmet made from high-quality, durable materials.
  • Check for adjustable headgear and a comfortable cushioning system.
  • Choose a lightweight helmet to minimise fatigue.
  • Consider the helmet's response time to automatically darken when the arc is struck.
  • Look for adjustable sensitivity settings to customise the helmet's response to different welding conditions.
