  • — crystal2.0 helmet plus e3000 PAPR deliver industry-leading active eye protection, visual clarity, and respiratory safety —

    East Greenwich, R.I. —  Optrel today announced its new crystal2.0 e3000 PAPR System — consisting of its industry-leading crystal2.0 welding helmet and its e3000 PAPR powered air purifying respirator. The system delivers a quantum improvement in active eye protection, visual clarity, and safety against airborne particulates for workers during welding or grinding operations.

    The NIOSH-approved crystal2.0 e3000 PAPR system protects welders from 99.8% of respiratory particulates including smoke, aerosol, and dust — providing up to 500x cleaner breathing air. The system delivers even air distribution of fresh air within the helmet due to its adjustable air flow control.

    The optrel crystal2.0 welding helmet, featuring optrel’s patented Crystal Lens Technology (CLT2.0), delivers 31% visible light transmission in its light state (Protection Level 2.0) — setting a new world record for best brightness and breaking the record optrel itself set three years ago. The crystal2.0’s industry-leading true color perception delivers a nearly-perfect color spectrum that provides unsurpassed optical clarity for welders of their work and job site. In its light state, the view is the same as looking through a clear glass window. In its dark state, the crystal2.0 provides a high-contrast view of the welding pool and best-in-class clearness.

    The new optrel crystal2.0 e3000 PAPR system features:

    • A filter that removes 99.8% of all particulates,
    • An integrated, adjustable air flow control for fresh air distribution,
    • An automatic air flow test when unit is powered on, and
    • Easy-to-use adjustment controls.

    The NIOSH-approved system meets industry standards US ANSI Z87.1, European CE (EN379, EN166, EN175), and complies with Canadian standard CSA Z94.3.

    The optrel crystal2.0 e3000 PAPR system is immediately available. A high-altitude version is also available. For more information, contact optrel at info_us@optrel.com.

  • — Most powerful ventilated breathing protection system available;
    Features industry-leading battery life —

    East Greenwich, R.I. — November 11, 2019 — Optrel today announced the welding industry’s most powerful ventilated breathing protection system available — the optrel e3000X powered air-purifying respirator (PAPR).

    Introducing leading “X-tended” advancements in productivity, efficiency, performance, and air-flow sensor technology, the new e3000X PAPR represents a new league in fresh air and respiratory protection. The new e3000X PAPR is certified to the highest class of breathing protection — TH3 — removing 99.8% of harmful airborne participles to deliver clean, filtered breathing air to welders.

    The e3000X sports an industry-leading optimized-performance design and sensor technology that enable the most powerful ventilated PAPR in the industry, delivering three levels of airflow (240, 210, or 170 liters per minute) at twice the efficiency of previous models for up to 18 hours of battery life.

    Modular in designed to be highly and easily adaptable, the e3000X provides breathing protection to welders in a variety of applications and environments, with a host of safety and operating features.  They include:

    • An adjustable airflow that delivers as much fresh air as the wearer desires, for comfort as well as for respiration.
    • A Mountain Breeze air filter that eliminates unpleasant odors as well as protects wearers from an increased concentration of ozone in the worksite.
    • An A1B1E1 gas filter insert (available mid-2020) that provides reliable protection against organic, inorganic, and acid gases and vapors in heavily polluted, foul-smelling, or toxic environments.
    • An ergonomic, three-point shoulder harness that improves wearer comfort by distributing the system’s fit across the wearer’s shoulders to relieve both back and hip pressure.
    • Fully-automatic calibration of the system’s airflow.
    • Instant display of the current battery charge level at the touch of a button.
    • A Parking Buddy belt hook to hold the welding helmet, off and away from contaminated work surfaces, when not in use.

    The e3000X PAPR system, with integrated air-flow sensors and three selectable flow rates, consists of the new e3000X ventilated respiratory protection system (blower unit and hose), pre-filters, TH3P R SL particle master filter, 18h power battery, leather belt, charger, parking buddy belt hook, duffle carrying bag, and user instructions.

    The e3000X PAPR system integrates with leading optrel PAPR welding helmets, including the optrel crystal 2.0, optrel panoramaxx, optrel e684, optrel vegaview2.5, optrel liteflip autopilot, as well as the optrel clearmaxx grinding helmet. The e3000X is also available as part of several ready-to-weld/ready-to-grind packages.

    The optrel e3000X PAPR meets industry standards EN 12941:1998 + A1:2003 + A2:2008, AS/NZS 1716:2012, and EAC: TP TC 019/2011. NIOSH approval is pending.

  • crystal2.0
    You won't believe your eyes! Crystal clear vision. Before, during, and after welding. Experience the enlightenment in welding with the new Crystal Lens Technology 2.0...
     

  • The world premiere for an absolute world record. The crystal2.0 sees optrel beat the best brightness level, which it set itself three years ago – and which had never been achieved previously. Light transmission in the inactive state is now 31 percent.

    The crystal clear view in bright state makes the crystal2.0 the ideal combined helmet without compromises. The color perception in light state is almost like looking through clear window glass and in dark mode you enjoy a detailled and high-contrast view of the welding pool with a never-seen-before clearness. For the first time in the history of welding you as a welder see the joining process as it actually takes place. How the weld pool melts, how the weld seam is created. You can see how the filler material is immersed in the welding pool and gain complete control over your work.

    The crystal2.0 is now available and compitable with our e3000 papr system.
