AirPlus Respiratory Kits
The Airplus® PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) system is a 3rd generation adaptation of the ArcOne system that has withstood the test of time for 20 years. This respirator system improves upon old designs by including:
- Extended Battery Life: 14 Hour Lithium Ion Battery (at lowest fan speed)
- A Variety of Alarm Systems: Audible and Vibration alarms to alert of clogged or missing filters
- Lightweight Comfort: Flexible air hose, ergonomic belt and washable face seal
- Airflow Correction
- Included Smart Charger
The new Airplus® Kit comes packed with all the equipment you will need to get started just plug them into your Head top and get started.
This motorized, battery powered respirator continually supplies a fresh flow of filtered air through the hose to the mask of the user. Creating a subtle yet stable pressure in the mask to prevent welding fumes and particulates from entering the mask. This system boasts a long battery life at low fan settings, up to 14 hours! It will also inform the user with audible and vibrational alarms if it detects a clogged filter or no filter at all keeping the user safe. Top that off with 8 fan speed settings, a flame-retardant cover and a smaller physical dimension than the larger kits available and this system ends up being a favorite of many welders.
Battery and Charger
The battery life of this system is one of the factors that makes it a truly great system. With up to 14 hours of active run time and a 5-7 hour recharge the user will not have to face much down-time while working. This lithium-ion battery in this kit also comes with the matching charger with LED indicators to let you know when the charging is complete.
ArcOne knows that when a user must wear gear when working, the most important factor is that it works well, the second is comfort! With that in mind ArcOne has designed an ergonomic comfort waist belt to hold the respirator without annoying the user.
Flame Retardant Covered Hose
The flame retardant covered hose is a twist lock hose that provides a clean flow of fresh air directly from the Airplus respirator system directly to the user's head top.
The Airplus provides a steady flow of air to the mask of the user. To make this process more visible to the user an airflow indicator is included in this kit. The airflow indicator is a clear plastic tube with a small indicator ball that is blown upwards when air is traveling through the plastic tubing. This gives you a visual indicator that your Airplus system is indeed on and flowing properly.
The P3 filter is designed to block many contaminants and particles that you may come across while welding. A user needs to make sure they keep their lungs safe during welding as well as their eyes. It has an APF level of 25
The P3 Air Filter Blocks Against:
Headgear and Airduct Assembly
This kit comes with the headgear and airduct assembly to turn your helmet (if compatible) into a respiratory system. It also includes a handy sweatband to keep your eyes clear of sweat while you work.
What kit is complete without a handy duffle bag for storage and transportation of your new respiratory system. The duffle bag provides extra mobility to the on the move welder going from job to job.

The Airplus system uses a modified version of the ArcOne Vision Welding Helmets for the respirator system.
