Bullard Launches New SparxLift Welding Helmet for EVA PAPR

JULY 10, 2014 – CYNTHIANA, KY – Bullard has launched a new Welding Helmet, SparxLift, for use with its industry leading EVA Powered Air-Purifying Respirator (PAPR). The SparxLift PAPR combination system provides welders and grinders with NIOSH approved respiratory protection and ANSI/ISEA Z87.1-2010 high impact face protection in a single package.

The SparxLift Welding Helmet features an Auto Darkening Filter (ADF) and unique patented AutoLift design that allows users to quickly switch from welding to grinding with the push of a button. With optically correct Ultraviolet (UV) and Infrared (IR) filters, SparxLift provides users with superior protection and viewing performance. The helmet's ADF reacts to prevent flash in 1/25,000 of a second and UV and IR filters provide full-time protection. SparxLift is equipped with the patented Inner Sense™ feature, which detects the Radio Frequency (RF) signal produced by Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welders to darken the screen before the arc is struck.

Users are protected from airborne hazards when SparxLift is coupled with the EVA PAPR that delivers 8.5 CFM (cubic feet per minute) of airflow and 1,000 Assigned Protection Factor (APF) to the helmet. Additional EVA features include:

  • An Active Flow Technology system that automatically maintains constant air flow regardless of filter type, hood type, filter loading or battery capacity
  • Ergonomic single-filter design for quick installation
  • Two distinct audible alarms
  • Easy-to-read fuel gauge
