  • Good respirator for gas welding SS

    I'm a hobbyist welder and tinker with gas welding small scrap SS. I currently use a 3M respirator I got at Home Depot with fume cartridges but am not 100% sure I'm using the correct respirator to protect me from hexavalent chromium. What are you guys using and where is a good source for such a respirator? Thanks in advance!...

      To be 100% safe, you almost want supplied remote air but it's not very affordable.

        I know it's the old thread but is a respirator required when the mig welding stainless steel?

          You would have to get an industrial hygienist to test the exposure levels to see if one is required. I personally would recommend wearing a respirator whenever welding stainless, regardless of process.
