SAFETY WARNINGS - READ BEFORE USING
WARNING
Read & Understand All Instructions Before Using
The welding helmets are designed to protect the eye and face from sparks, spatter and harmful
radiation under normal welding conditions.
Welding helmets can only resist a certain amount of heat. Please do not place hot electrode
holders inside the helmet and please do not place the helmet near naked flames or hot work
surfaces. Scratched or damaged lenses must always be replaced if broken, damaged or
covered with spatter to the extent that vision is impaired.
The user should conduct daily regular checks to ensure no damage is evident. Materials that
may get in contact with the wearers skin could cause Allergic reactions to susceptible
individuals. Eye-protectors against high speed particles worn over standard ophthalmic
spectacles may transmit impacts, thus creating a hazard to the wearer.
Please check regularly of the consumable components and replace if serviceability or visibility is
suspected to be affected, and finally dispose when critical components not offered as spares
are suspected to be damaged or if serviceability is affected.
WARNING
• This welding helmet is not suitable for laser welding.
• Never place this helmet on a hot surface.
• This helmet will not protect against explosive devices or corrosive liquids.
• Do not make any modifications to either the lens or helmet, unless specified in this manual.
• Do not use replacement parts other than those specified in this manual. Unauthorized
modifications and replacement parts will void the warranty and expose the operator to the risk of
personal injury.
• Do not immerse the helmet in water
• Do not use any solvents on the filter screen or helmet components.
• Storing temperature: -20 °C ~ +85 °C (- 4 °F ~ +185 °F). The helmet should be stored in dry
cool and dark area, when not using it for a long time.
• Clean the lens surface regularly; do not use strong cleaning solutions. Regularly replace the
cracked / scratched / pitted front lens.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
WARNING! Before using the helmet for welding, ensure that you have read and understood the safety
instructions.
Information manual for the F20 welder protective helmets comply with Para 1.4 of Appendix
II of the EC Regulations.
F20 helmets offer permanent protection against UV/IR rays, also face and eye protection
from sparks caused by the welding process.
Do not look directly at the welding rays with unprotected eyes when the arc strikes. This can
cause painful inflammation of the cornea and irreparable damage to the lens of the eye
leading to cataracts.
RANGE OF APPLICATION
WARNING! Before using the helmet for welding, ensure that you have read and understood the safety
instructions.
ESAB welding helmets can be used for the majority of the arc welding applications and for TIG
where stated. The welding lens provide protection against harmful UV- and IR-radiation
according to the requirement for shade number marked on each passive glass model; eye
protection remains as long as the flip up is in the down position covering the vision.
The following chart is presented as a reference for the selection of the most suitable shade for

Depending upon the application conditions, the next highest or next lowest protection level can
be used.
The darker fields correspond to those areas in which the corresponding welding process cannot
be used.
The ESAB F20 welding helmets are suitable, but not limited to the following applications:
AC/DC pulses
Inverters WIG/TIG
Stick welding
Argon/Helium
MIG/MAG protective gas electrodes
PREPARATION & OPERATION
ESAB F20 welding helmets are fully assembled and ready to be used after minor adjustments.
All welding helmets are equipped with a comfortable headgear that can be adjusted in four
different ways:
• Push and move to adjust the “Head height”
• “Rake adjustment” to limit the upper and lower helmet positioning
• Push and turn to adjust the “Head size”
• Turn to adjust the “Distance from face”

Before commencing work please inspect carefully the welding helmet and the passive glass for
any visible marks, cracks, pitted or scratched surfaces; damaged surfaces even on protection
plates reduce vision impair protection. If protection plates are scratched, damaged or built up
with spatter please replace.
Welding helmets should not be dropped. Do not place heavy objects or tools on or inside the
helmet as they might damage the components. If used properly the passive glass requires no
further maintenance during its lifetime.
SERVICING AND MAINTENANCE
Only clean the F20 with mild soap and water. Dry with a clean cotton cloth.
Please note the use of solvents is strictly prohibited, as they will damage the mask and the lens.
Scratched or damaged visors must always be replaced.
The user must make daily regular checks to ensure no damage is evident. Outer and Inner
cover lens are consumables and must be replaced regularly with genuine certified ESAB spare
parts.
REPLACING THE OUTER LENS
Lift the flip visor in its upper position, remove the lens buckle that holds the protective lenses and
mineral glass replace the component(s) and make sure that you put them back in the same
order. Replace the lens buckle if necessary. Make sure that the mineral glass stays within outer
and inner protective lenses.
Follow the same procedure to replace the protective lens installed on the welding shell, simply
remove the lens buckle that hold the cover lens from the inside part of the shell and replace with
a suitable ESAB part.
