Viking PAPR 3350 Welding Helmet

PAPR Viking Helmet K3930-2

Clear The Air On Welding Safety

Where welding operations are concerned, safety is directly connected to air quality. When welding must be performed in enclosed or other areas where it is difficult to provide effective ventilation or otherwise control exposure to welding fume, the last line of defense is personal protective equipment for the individual operator. The VIKING™ PAPR (Powered Air Purifying Respirator) provides effective air-purification solution all-day long.

PAPR Helmet K3930-2

1/1/1/1 optical clarity

The VIKING™ PAPR is a complete system that purifies ambient air from the shop and delivers filtered, breathable air for as much as eight hours without interruption. The two-speed blower drives air through the hose to a VIKING™ 3350 helmet rated for a perfect 1/1/1/1 optical clarity. A patent pending adjustable baffling system inside the helmet directs air away from eyes to keep them from getting dry. The PAPR system complies to Australian standard AS/NZS 1338-1 and AS/NZS 1716:2012 class P2. The system has a respiratory protection class TH2 (EN 12941). Proper ventilation may not always be an option in every welding environment. Bring fume protection and filtered air directly to the operator in difficult environments and keep it there all day with the PAPR.


Two air flow baffles allow users to adjust the air for maximum comfort and prevent drying of the eyes.

Lightweight and comfortable
The blower weight is 998g while the entire system weighs in at 2.8 kg, most of which is in the belt pack and hose and away from the head and shoulders. The low-profile blower in the belt unit allows unrestricted movement.

Lasts all day (and then some)
Operators can work a full shift (or more) without interruption. The PAPR comes with a standard battery that outpaces the battery life of competing systems. Additionally, Lincoln offers an extended battery which has a run time of up to 16 hours. This extra battery capacity provides flexibility when working overtime and is a safeguard when the system is not recharged overnight. The system also has audible and vibrating alarms to signal when the battery is low.

Two speeds, consistent delivery
The PAPR system maintains a positive pressure at two speeds: 180 and 210 litres per minute. The system automatically adjusts fan speeds to keep airflow constant.

4C™ Lens Technology
The new 4C ADF Technology improves the performance of the lens in the 4 most important categories to the welder:
1. Clarity - Optical Clarity 1/1/1/1
2. Color - Real Color View
3. Carat - Light Weight
4. Cut - Even Shade From Any Angle

The 4C Lens Technology upgrade to Lincoln Electric’s VIKING™ PAPR 3350 welding helmet – improves visibility and reduces eye strain by minimising the traditional lime green colouring in the helmet view screen. 4C technology is ideal for a range of industries such as general fabrication, power generation, shipbuilding, structural, offshore and pipeline that use multiple welding processes, including Stick, MIG and TIG. Whatever the task at hand, 4C technology gives you a clear view to productivity and quality.
