For optimum performance and comfort, the user should develop a daily habit of checking all components of the welding shield and respiratory system.



The table below is our suggested maintenance schedule for typical industrial environments:

COMPONENT TYPICALLY REPLACED NOTES
Outside protective plate Once a week Replace anytime the plates becomes deeply pitted or scratched or too dirty to clean with soft cloth or lens paper.
Inside protective plate Once a month Regularly clean with soft cloth  and replace if any pits or scratches occur.
FlexView clear visor Every two weeks Replace more often if visibility is reduced.
Sweatband Once a month Replace more often if sweatband becomes unhygenic.
Prefilter Every two weeks Regular replacement of the prefilter extends the life of the particle filter and decreases running costs.
Particle filter At least every two months Replace whenever the battery operating timebecomes too short or when "fully loaded" filter triggers low airflow alarm.
Gas filter At least every 3 or 4 weeks. Immediately replace the gas filter any time you can smell odours while wearing the system.

Odour filter (Adflo)

Any time you smell unpleasant odours Odour filter is not required if gas filter is used.
Spark arrestor (Adflo) As needed Replace if deformed and no longer fitting well.
Breathing Tube If damaged, deformed  or leaking any air. To extend the life of breathing tube, use a tube cover or a heavy-duty rubber breathing tube.
Face seal At least every three months. In really dirty environments, replace earlier if unhygienic.


IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Note that higher-than-normal levels of pollutants, heat, and sparks will require more frequent replacement of components.
