3M™ Speedglas™ Adflo (HE) 9100XX and Hard Hat 16-0905-SGXX
3M™ is excited to introduce a new line of
Speedglas™ combined systems and helmets. We’ve paired the legendary
Speedglas™ ADF with our best-in-class powered air purifying respirator
and our L-Series hard hat to provide you with unparalleled comfort and
protection in the most demanding welding environments.
Easier to breathe when wearing than traditional forms of
respiratory protection or with no respirator at all.
Positive pressure airflow gives no breathing resistance and
helps provide respiratory protection without the need for a
tight faceseal. No fit testing required.
Wideview faceshield allows for excellent peripheral and
Headgear is lightweight and well balanced.
Supplied air systems allow workers to regulate the airflow,
as well as cool or heat the air entering the headgear —
ideal for extreme temperature working environments.
Can be worn with facial hair, prescription eyewear or
(Do not wear if facial hair comes between the face and respirator faceseal.)
Provides respiratory and limited head, face and eye protection.
Meets OSHA standards for applications where positive
pressure respirators are required.
Meets ANSI Z89.1-2003, Class I and II.
Meets CAN/CSA Z94.1-92, Class G.
Standard High Efficiency (HE) particulate filter protects against the following exposures:
Hexavalent Chromium metal fume
Steel/Manganese Alloys fume
Stainless Steel fume
Glavanized Steel fume
Adflo OV/SD/CL/HC vapor cartridge protects against:
Sulfur Dixoide vapor
Hydrogen Chloride vapor
Exclusive "stackable" configuration adapts to changing welding applications.
Environmentally-friendly NiMH battery charges in less than 3 hours with a smart charger that won't ever overcharge.
System Intelligence: Constant Airflow Rate, regardless of battery charge and filter loading. Audible and visual alarms signal low airflow and low battery charge.
The unique belt design has a solid leather front, cut narrow to allow the welder to bend forward easily. Along the welder's sides, the leather becomes wider, with large ventilation holes for maximum breathability. The turbo unit securely attaches to, and is nestled between, the two plastic arms of the belt so the turbo's weight is evenly distributed across the entire lower back and upper hips. The plastic arms are vertically rigid but with pleats so the welder can move and turn with freedom.
Exclusive airflow pattern means perfectly-distributed air throughout the entire breathing zone of the helmet.
Assigned Protection Factor: 25
Airflow (nominal): 6+ cfm (170+ lpm) minimum
HE: up to 12 - 13 hrs/charge
HE + OV/SD/CL/HC: up to 5.5 - 6 hrs/charge
Battery Charging Time: 3 hours
Helmet assembly w/ 9002X lens: 20 ounces
Adflo Turbo w/ Battery, Breathing Tube & Belt: 4.48 lbs (2.03 kg)
Optional OV/SD/CL/HC Cartridge: 17.9 oz
Operating Temperatures: 23° to 131°F (-5° to 55°C)
Respirator Approval: NIOSH 42 CFR 84 (link to NIOSH: www.cdc.gov/niosh/homepage.html)
WARNING! Not to be used in atmospheres classified as IDLH. Not to be used in atmospheres of less than 19.5% oxygen. Final determination of respirator applicability and filter selection must be made by an on-site safety specialist or industrial hygienist.
Speedglas™ 9100 Helmet Features
The helmet is made from a lightweight, but
durable material that meets the mechanical
strength requirements of EN 175 level ”B” and
Speedglas™ 9100XX Auto Dark Lens Features
Viewing area 12.11 sq in
Magnification made easy. The new magnifying lens holder,
on the inside face of the welding helmet, makes lens
installation easier and more adjustable.
Seven user selectable dark
shades: shade 5 for gas
welding/cutting, shade 8
for microplasma and low
amp TIG welding and shade
9 to 13 for most other
types of arc welding.
The ‘tack welding comfort mode’ uses
an intermediate light state (shade 5). If
a follow-up arc is not struck within two
seconds, the welding filter switches to
the normal light state (shade 3). The
comfort mode may help reduce eye
fatigue resulting from the eye constantly
needing to adjust to differing light levels
during tack welding.
The delay function allows the user to
set the dark-to-light switching time.
Sensitivity of arc detection can be adjusted to provide reliable switching
for a wide range of arc welding processes, amperages and situations.
And you now can ‘lock-in’ any shade: the light shade for grinding or other
non-welding activities, or one of the dark shades—to have it function as a
passive welding filter.

Speedglas™ wide view faceshield with shroud

Stars based on
lens problem on all these hoods
January 4, 2013
I've been using the 9002x lens for three years. It worked so good that I bought two of them. This 9100xx however has a defect. When you start working, as soon as this hood heats up a little bit the lens starts to go black, like a broken digital watch. When it cools down back to room temp the blackness fades back. If your doing anything to serious like say air arcing or welding for example, I would not recommend this hood. We bought two of them and they both exhibit the same condition. I'm going to call Speedglas but it's quite clear they are not testing this stuff very well these days.
Pros:It's so nice not to suck up air arc and stainless fumes and not to have a respirator on my face.
Cons:I paid a good penny for this and it doesn't work 100%. If when I speak with Speedglas they issue me a new corrected lens then I will be back to write a new post. doubtful

Can I get just get the L-905SG Hardhat, I have the rest allready. I purchased the whole kit last year but didn't realize it was not a hardhat system which is what I am now requiring.
By Customer Service on August 2, 2012
Answer:You can just purchase the L-905SG hard hat assembly and team it up with your current adflo system. The cost would be $716.00 with free standard ground shipping.

will i have to buy the standard headgear to wear this without the hardhat?
