The Weltek Kapio S3 air fed welding and grinding system comes complete with the Kapio auto darkening helmet and the Airkos blower unit.  The blower unit sucks in air, filters it using replaceable, disposable filters and blows clean air over the welders head and onto their face.  This wafting of air provides a positive air flow ensuring that welding fumes and grinding dust do not enter the mask.

Air fed helmets, also referred to as PAPR welding helmets (Powered air purifying respirators) are worthwhile investments to provide both eye and respiratory protection from the light and fumes associated with welding and grinding.  The Kapio S3 comes in a stylish and durable matt black.  With a simple switch it is possible to switch from standard air flow to increased.  This is a nice feature if working on a particularly fume emitting material or on hot summer days!

The optical class of the Kapio S3 is up there with the best, scoring 1/1/1/2.  That’s top marks for most ranking factors.

When associated to the Airkos®, the Kapio® S3 helmet provides the filtration of Solid and Liquid Particules (PSL). The bolted and flame retardant face seal guarantees a limited TH2 inward leakage inside the headtop. The main filter on the Airkos® is classified as re-usable (PRSL), and does not need to be replaced after every shift. The visual and sound alarm will inform the operator when to replace the filter.
The PRSL filter of the Airkos® is equipped with a pre-filter, blocking the largest particles and extending the lifecycle of the main filter. As an option, a pre-filter with active charcoals is available.
The Airkos® blower unit (PAPR) is approved and certified according to the EN 12941 standard, with and only with the Kapio® headtop.

Completing the alarm for the clogged filter, the filtration unit is also equipped with a distinctive alarm for the battery, informing the operator when the charge is running low.
The Airkos® is delivered with a standard 4-cell Lithium-ion battery. A heavy-duty battery with 6 Lithium-ion cells is also available.

When equipped with the standard battery (Part Number CR7020), the Airkos® can provide up to 10 hours of operating time (with a new filter and on minimum airflow).

Once equipped with the heavy-duty battery (Part Number CR7021), the Airkos® offers up to 15 hours, under the same conditions.
According to the welding application, the close environment and the operator’s habits, it is possible to select between 2 airflows on the Airkos®. 180l/m is the minimum airflow. With a simple push on the control knob, the unit increases the airflow to 220l/m.A very large and padded belt provides an excellent comfort and a perfect support of the blower unit. As options, a padded harness and/or a belt extension are available to complete the existing belt.
Each Kapio® Airkos is delivered with its own storage bag. The Airkos® storage bag is perfect for transport and stock of buffer spare parts.
