Why to use Welding Helmet – A Buyer’s Guide
Product Knowledge 20, Dec, 2015
A good welding helmet is very essential when doing any kind of welding. A Welding Helmet is a type of headgear used when performing certain types of welding to protect the eyes, face and neck from flash burn, ultraviolet light, sparks, infrared light, and heat. A helmet with good optical clarity contributes to the quality of welds, as they allow the welder to see the weld puddle clearly. Selecting a helmet can be confusing if you're not familiar with the latest auto-darkening lens technology and national safety standards.
About Auto Darkening Welding Helmet
Sparks fly everywhere when flame touches metal, and with high heat comes blinding light. An auto-darkening welding helmet is just one of the many necessary safety bits for welders. Welding helmets protect the eyes from UV light, and flash burns. Covering the eyes is especially necessary, as arc welding can cause inflamed corneas and retina burns. The lenses darken automatically when bright arcs are present, freeing the welder's hands from manually lowering the eye shield when ready to weld.
Consumer can choose Stayer’s Darkening Welding Helmets in different shapes and designs with various features, such as digital controls and variable shades. Because welding involves intense heat and sparks, any cracks or other signs of damage are cause for concern, and faulty helmets need immediate replacing. Spending more on a welding helmet will increase comfort, improve your welding ability, result in higher quality welds and ensure your safety .The vast inventory on Juno Enterprises FZE makes it easy to find the right auto-darkening welding helmet with the features you need.
The advantage of an Auto-Darkening Filter (ADF) versus a traditional passive filter is that the welder does not need to adjust the position of welding helmet manually which not only saves time but also reduces the risk of exposure to the extremely bright and harmful light generated by the welding process.
