  • How to clean your Welding Lens?

    Cleaning your welding lens is crucial for maintaining visibility and ensuring safety during welding operations. The lens can accumulate dust, spatter, and other debris, obscuring your vision. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to clean your welding lens:

    1. Gather Materials: Before you start cleaning, make sure you have the following materials on hand:
      • Soft microfiber cloth
      • Lens cleaning solution or dish soap
    1. Run Under Warm Water: Run the lens under warm water before applying any cleaning solution. This will help to remove larger debris that could scratch the lens during cleaning. Hold the lens under the water and gently move it around to ensure all surfaces are rinsed.
    2. Apply Dish Soap: After rinsing the lens under warm water, apply a small amount of dish soap to a microfiber cloth or directly onto the lens. Gently clean the lens with the cloth, using circular motions. Be careful not to apply too much pressure, which could scratch the lens.
    3. Rinse and Dry the Lens: Rinse the lens under warm water to remove the dish soap. Then, use a dry microfiber cloth to dry the lens gently. Again, be gentle to avoid scratching the lens.
    4. Inspect the Lens: Hold the lens to a light source and inspect it for any remaining dust, debris, or smudges. If necessary, repeat the cleaning process.
    5. Reinstall the Lens: After cleaning and drying the lens, carefully reinstall it in the welding helmet according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
    6. Regular Maintenance: Make cleaning your welding lens a regular maintenance routine. This will ensure that you always have clear visibility while welding, which is crucial for quality and safety.

    Remember always to handle the lens carefully, as they can be delicate and easily scratched or damaged. If your lens is heavily scratched or damaged, replacing it with a new one may be best.

  • How long does it take to ship Phillips Safety's welding lenses?

    Phillips Safety welding lenses typically ship in 1-3 business days. However, the shipping time may be extended if the lenses are on backorder. It’s always a good idea to check the availability and estimated shipping times on the website or contact customer service for the most current information.

  • What is a passive welding lens?

    A passive welding lens is used in welding helmets to protect the eyes from the intense light and harmful radiation emitted during welding. Unlike auto-darkening lenses, passive lenses have a fixed shade level, usually around #10. They are always dark and do not adjust to changes in light. Passive lenses are generally made of tinted glass or plastic and are cost-effective and durable.

  • What is the standard size for welding lenses?

    The standard size for a welding helmet lens refers to the dimensions of the lens that fits into the helmet. The dimensions of welding lenses can vary, but two sizes are generally considered standard:

    1. 2 x 4.25 inches (50 x 108 mm): This is a traditional size for passive lenses and is sometimes called a “standard” size. It’s commonly used in older or more basic welding helmet models.
    2. 4.5 x 5.25 inches (114 x 133 mm): This size is often used in newer helmets and is more common for auto-darkening lenses. It offers a larger viewing area than the 2 x 4.25 inches size.

    In addition to these standard sizes, welding helmets are available with larger or non-traditional lens sizes that offer an extended field of vision. It’s essential to ensure the lens size is compatible with the welding helmet you are using. Always check the manufacturer’s helmet and lens specifications to ensure proper fit.

  • What shade welding lens should I use for MIG welding?

    The shade number of a welding lens indicates the level of darkness provided to protect your eyes from the brightness of the welding arc. Regarding MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding, the shade number you should use depends on the amperage and material thickness you are working with.

    As a general guideline, the following shade numbers are recommended for MIG welding:

    • For lower amperages (under 100 amps): Shade #10 is usually sufficient.
    • For amperages between 100 to 200 amps: Shade #10 to #12 is recommended.
    • For higher amperages (over 200 amps): Shade #12 to #13 are recommended.

    Personal preference and sensitivity to light can play a role in selecting the appropriate shade. Some welders prefer a slightly darker or lighter shade than recommended based on comfort and visibility.

    Always ensure you’re comfortable with the shade and that it provides adequate eye protection.

  • What shade welding lens for tig welding?

    For TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding, the shade number you should use for the welding lens depends on the amperage used. Generally, TIG welding is done at lower amperages than other welding processes, so you might need a lighter shade than you would for MIG or stick welding.

    Here is a general guideline for choosing the appropriate shade for TIG welding:

    • For very low amperages (under 50 amps): Shade #8 or #9.
    • For amperages between 50 to 150 amps: Shade #10.
    • For amperages between 150 to 200 amps: Shade #11 or #12.
    • For higher amperages (over 200 amps): Shade #12 to #14.

    Remember that individual preferences and sensitivities to light can also play a role in shade selection. Some welders prefer a slightly darker or lighter shade for comfort and visibility. It’s essential to ensure that you are comfortable with the shade and that it provides sufficient protection for your eyes during welding.
