Welding Respirator

Hey everyone!

I'm going to be doing a pretty fair amount of welding in the next few days so I've been looking for a respirator because I care about my health. My girlfriends mom conveniently had one laying around with about 2 hours of use, so I figured I would ask an experienced welder if this will work in filtering the particles emitted by welding aluminized steel, regular carbon steel, and stainless steel.

Here is the mask:

Here are the cartridges:

Amazon.com: AO Safety/3M Tekk 95061 Replacement Cartridge for Quicklatch PRO Respirator: Home Improvement

Will this do anything? I'll be welding outside, so ventilation should be pretty good.

Re: Welding Respirator

I never used one while welding.
Watch any shows that do fabrication on tv; OCC, Sons of Guns, Trucks, Extreme 4x4.... none of them us them, and all of them are inside shops.

Outside ventilation will be PLENTY!




Plus there's no way that giant respirator is gonna fit under the welding mask either hahaha

Re: Welding Respirator

Use a fan, my boss gave me a huge lecture on why a respirator wont work. In a nutshell he said it won't stop you from breathing in the fumes which are basically cyanide. I get bad welders fever last weekend when I was welding the exhaust on my corolla.

Re: Welding Respirator

+1 fan. Number 1 rule of welding, stay properly ventilated. Just keep in mind, too much airflow gives a poor weld pool.

Re: Welding Respirator

This mask filters out most of the particles I'm sure. What produces a fume is the particles of something landing on the olfactory receptors in our noses. This random mask I have eliminates all smells, which means it's filtering out the "fumes" very well. I have only tried it with normal smells like dogs and cigarettes though, so it may not work with welding. Respirators do work. The fan idea is a great one, I forgot about that. I also understand that I'll have plenty of ventilation, but I'm OCD about stuff like that. So outside + fan + this respirator = g2g? lol

I'd say outside = g2g, throw in the OCD part and just weld on a windy day and g2g.. just my 2 cents

Thanks for the input. I just need to get some practice in before I work on his exhaust. I'm not great at welding yet, but I've done in successfully before

Re: Welding Respirator

I wouldn't worry too much about welders fever from welding alluminized steel, maybe stainless, but I wouldn't worry either. Galvin and the dirty crap is what I would worry about. Welding metal that's been exposed to oil is really what makes me feel like crap after. Next thing would be rusty old exhaust, because of the carbon on crap on the inside.
