Component Concept
The Bullard SparxLift Series airline
respirators, when properly used,
provide a continuous flow of air
from a remote air source to the
respirator wearer. SparxLift Series
respirators offer protection from
airborne contaminants that are not
immediately dangerous to life or
health (IDLH), or that do not exceed
maximum use concentrations
allowed by applicable OSHA, EPA,
NIOSH, ACGIH, or other regulatory
standards and recommendations.
The Bullard SparxLift Series airline respirators consist of four components
(Figure 1): respirator helmet assembly, breathing tube assembly, flow control
device, and air supply hose.
All components must be present and properly assembled to constitute a
complete NIOSH approved respirator.

Warnings
� WARNING
4
1. N
EVER use this respirator, or any supplied air respirator, in concentrations which exceed the maximum use concentrations for the respirator you have chosen.
2. I t is imperative to know the level of concentration of contaminants for which this respirator, or any respirator, is being used. Otherwise, it is impossible to choose
an appropriate respirator.
3. I t is also imperative that you measure the concentration of contaminants after the welding or grinding before you send your employee(s) back into the area
to perform other tasks such as clean-up or painting. Concentrations may still be high enough to exceed the maximum use concentrations of many respirators,
including supplied air respirators.
4. D
o not assume that the concentrations you measured at an earlier time must be or probably are the same now for a different task or operation. Concentrations
may vary significantly depending on a host of factors including, but not limited to, the number of welders/grinders engaged in the operation, whether the
operation is in an enclosed or partially-enclosed structure, whether ventilation is used, and the type of ventilation.
5. T his respirator, when properly fitted and used, in conjunction with adherence to OSHA regulations and industry standards, will provide a reasonable degree
of protection to the wearer. The respirator significantly reduces, but may not totally eliminate, the breathing of contaminants depending on the work practices
involved. Where concentrations of contaminants are excessive, respirator wearers may obtain a higher level of protection from a self contained breathing
apparatus (SCBA) respirator. At this time there are no side-by-side field studies for comparison. However, OSHA does assign higher protection factors to SCBAs.
Ideally, the employer should measure concentrations inside the breathing zone on a periodic basis to ensure that the wearer is receiving adequate protection.
6. Before using this respirator, Federal Law requires that the employer shall identify and evaluate the respiratory hazard(s) in the workplace, and that this evaluation
shall include a reasonable estimate of employee exposures to respiratory hazard(s) and an identification of the contaminant’s chemical state and physical form.
Do not exceed maximum use concentrations established by OSHA, EPA, NIOSH, ACGIH, or other regulatory standards. All approved respirators shall be selected,
fitted, used and maintained in accordance with MSHA, OSHA, NIOSH and other applicable regulations.
7. I mproper respirator use may damage your health and/or cause your death. Improper use may also cause certain life threatening delayed lung diseases such as
silicosis, pneumoconiosis, or asbestosis.
8. Do not wear this respirator if any of the following conditions exist:
a. The atmosphere is immediately dangerous to your life or health (IDLH)
b. You cannot escape without the aid of the respirator
c. The atmosphere contains less than 19.5% oxygen
d. The work area is poorly ventilated
e. Unknown contaminants are present, or
f. Contaminant concentrations are in excess of regulations or recommendations (as described in item 2 above).
9. D
o not wear this respirator until you have passed a complete medical evaluation (perhaps including a lung x-ray) conducted by qualified medical personnel, and
have been trained in the respirator’s use, maintenance, and limitations by a qualified individual (appointed by your employer) who has extensive knowledge of
Bullard SparxLift Series respirators.
10. D
o not modify or alter this respirator in any manner. Use only NIOSH approved SparxLift Series components and replacement parts manufactured by Bullard
for use with this respirator. Failure to use NIOSH-approved Bullard components and replacement parts such as lenses, hoses, flow control devices, and
climate control devices, voids NIOSH approval of the entire respirator, invalidates all Bullard warranties, and could cause death, serious injury, lung disease, or
exposure to other hazardous or life threatening conditions. In the past, Bullard has tested after-market or “pirate” air control valves. In these tests, only four
(4) CFM of air was allowed into the breathing zone. Incoming air flow is very important to the respirator user and is instrumental in keeping contaminants out
of the breathing zone of the respirator user. This respirator was designed and certified by NIOSH to provide a minimum of six (6) CFM to the wearer. Buying
replacement parts that are not manufactured by Bullard and intended for this respirator not only voids NIOSH approval and Bullard warranties, but also exposes
the respirator user to an unreasonable health risk and may result in fines from OSHA.
11. Inspect all components of this respirator system daily for signs of wear, tear, or damage that might reduce the degree of protection originally provided.
Immediately replace worn or damaged components with NIOSH approved Bullard SparxLift Series components or remove the respirator from service. (See
INSPECTION, CLEANING, AND STORAGE section on page 17 for proper maintenance of SparxLift Series respirators).
12. T his respirator must be supplied with clean breathable air at all times. Be certain your employer has determined that the breathing air source at the point-ofattachment provides at least Grade D breathable air—air meeting the requirements as described in the Compressed Gas Association Commodity Specification
CGA G-7.1 and as specified by Federal Law at 42 CFR, Par 84, Subpart J, 84.141(b) and 29 CFR 1910.134(i). The point-of-attachment is the point at which the air
supply hose connects to the air source. This respirator does not purify air or filter out contaminants.
13. U
se only the hose lengths and pressure ranges specified in the instruction manual. A pressure gauge attached to the air source is used to monitor the amount
and adequacy of air provided to the respirator wearer (see page 7).
14. D
o not connect the respirator’s air supply hose to nitrogen, oxygen, toxic gases, inert gases, or other non-Grade D air sources. To prevent this, the employer
must use airline couplings that are incompatible with outlets for other gas systems, as required by OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1910.134 (i) (8).
Check the air source before using the respirator. Failure to connect to the proper air source could result in death or serious injury.

� WARNING
15. Do not use this respirator in poorly ventilated areas or confined spaces such as tanks, small rooms, tunnels, or vessels unless the confined space is well
ventilated and the contaminant concentrations are below the upper limit recommended for this respirator. In addition, follow all procedures for confined space
entry, operation and exit as defined in applicable regulations and standards, including 29 CFR 1910.146.
16. If you have any questions concerning the use of this respirator, or if you are not sure whether the atmosphere you are working in is immediately dangerous to
life or health (IDLH), ask your employer. All instructions for the use and care of this product must be supplied to you by your employer as recommended by the
manufacturer and as required by Federal Law (29 CFR 1910.134).
17. Do not use this respirator for underwater diving.
18. Leave work area immediately if
- Any respirator component becomes damaged
- Airflow into respirator stops or slows down
- T he air pressure, as indicated on the gauge, drops below the minimum specified in the Breathing Air Pressure Table in the SparxLift Series User Manual
- Breathing becomes difficult
- You become dizzy, nauseous, too hot, too cold, or ill
- You taste, smell, or see contaminants inside the respirator hood
- Your vision becomes impaired
19. Eye & Face Protection: The SparxLift Helmet provides ANSI/ISEA Z87.1-2010 High Impact Face Protection but the lenses are not shatterproof.
20. Hearing Protection: SparxLift Series respirators DO NOT provide hearing protection. Use properly fitted earmuffs, earplugs and/or other hearing protection
when exposed to high noise levels.
21. Historically, the incidence of disease from overexposure to toxic substances almost always occurs because the OSHA regulations and industry standards
applicable to the work practices involved are not followed. It is, therefore, imperative that the employer understand and follow all of these standards and
regulations.
REMEMBER:
- Respiratory protection is but one component of safe work practices. To minimize the chances of overexposure, all safety regulations and
standards must be followed; and,
- Respiratory protection is the last line of defense to be employed. The employer must first eliminate or minimize the levels of toxic
substances in the work place by accepted engineering control measures. Assuming the employer and the wearer do their part, this respirator
should provide the wearer with an adequate degree of protection.

Air Source
Locate the source of supplied air whether it is an air compressor or an ambient
air pump, such as a Bullard Free-Air pump, in a clean air environment. Locate
the air source far enough from your work site to ensure the air remains
contaminant-free. Always use an inlet filter on your air source. Use suitable
after-cooler/dryers, filters, carbon monoxide monitors and alarms, like the
Bullard Clean Air Box (CAB) Series, as necessary to assure clean, breathable air
at all times. The air should be regularly sampled to be sure that it meets Grade
D requirements.

� WARNING
This respirator MUST be supplied with clean, breathable air, Grade D or
better, at all times. This respirator does NOT purify air or filter out contaminants. Failure to follow these instructions could result in death or
serious injury.
Failure to supply the minimum required pressure at the point-of-attachment for your hose length and type will reduce airflow and could result in
death or serious injury.
The Breathing Air Pressure Tables (page 7-8) defines the air pressure ranges
necessary to provide SparxLift Series respirators with a volume of air that falls
within the required range of 6-15 cfm or 170-425 lpm (Ref. 42 CFR, Part 84,
Subpart J, Table 8).
Make sure you understand the information in the Breathing Air Pressure Table
before using this respirator.
1. Find your flow control valve/climate control device in the box heading and
column 1.
2. Be sure your Bullard air supply hose(s) (column 3) is approved for use with
your flow control valve/climate control device.
3. Determine that your Bullard air supply hose is within the approved length
(column 3).
4. Make sure you have not exceeded the maximum number of hose sections
(column 3).
5. Set the air pressure at the point-of-attachment within the required pressure
range for your flow control valve/climate control device, and air supply hose
type and length. Accurate pressure readings can only be attained when air is
flowing into the respirator.

SparxLift Series Welding Helmet Airline
Respirator User Manual
Bullard air supply hose(s), as part of a NIOSH approved system, MUST be used between the breathing tube connection fitting on the wearer’s belt and the point-ofattachment to the air supply (page 9).
Bullard quick-disconnect fittings, as part of a NIOSH approved system, MUST be used to connect V20 hose lengths together. When connecting lengths of V10 hose,
only use Bullard V11 hose-to-hose adapters. Secure connection(s) until wrench tight and leak free. Total connected hose length and number of hoses MUST be
within the ranges specified on the Breathing Air Pressure Table (pages 7-8) and the respirator’s NIOSH approval label (pages 2-3).
The breathing tube connection fitting MUST be secured to the belt that is supplied with this respirator. Securing the air entry connection fitting helps prevent the air
supply hose from snagging, disconnecting or pulling the respirator helmet off your head.

Respirator Configurations/Before Use
The auto darkening welding filter in the SparxLift has been designed for arc
welding and gas cutting. It is suitable for all normal arc welding processes
such as MIG, MAG, TIG, SMAW, Plasma Arc and Air Carbon welding.
Before use the shade control should be adjusted to the appropriate level
based upon ANSI/ISEA Z87.1-2010, ANSI Z49.1:2012, EN169 (European
Standard specifications or equivalent) or other appropriate safety guidelines.
When in doubt please consult your safety representative or your authorized
Bullard distributor.
The SparxLift provides continuous protection from ultraviolet and infrared
radiation to the maximum level indicated on the product and as described in
the relevant Standards. This protection is fail-safe and is not compromised by
loss of battery power or other electronic failure.
The SparxLift welding filter cartridge is fitted with two independently
operated sensors that detect the welding arc and respond accordingly
resulting in the appropriate darkened filter state as set by the user and as
indicated on the scaled adjustment. Please note that professional judgement
may be required to achieve the best results. When in doubt consult an
authorized safety representative or your Bullard distributor and always
maintain a conservative attitude towards operation.
Two replaceable lithium batteries type CR2032 (3V) are used as major power
sources. An additional solar cell panel extends battery life and ensures

Maintenance
Delay Control
The delay functions should be used to set the
recovery delay from dark to light of the welding
filter according to welding method and current.
NOTE
Always ensure that all maintenance procedures are conducted in a
clean dry place. Use clean dry hands and avoid direct contact with any
glass surfaces. Handle cover plates and welding filter by the edges and
carefully clean off any dirt or debris before re-use.
Changing the Front and Rear Cover Plates
Control Function
• Unclip and open the front cover as shown in the diagram. You will then
be able to remove and replace the front cover lens as required.
• Before installing the new cover lens remove the protective film from both sides.
• To change the rear cover lens gently remove the cartridge from the
helmet you will then be able to unclip the inner cover lens and replace it.
Again, you must remove the protective film from both sides of the cover
lens before installing it.

Light Sensitivity Control
Where problems are encountered during
welding at low amps (e.g. TIG) or there is a
high level of ambient light please follow these
steps. First try adjusting the sensitivity control
switch. Start with the sensitivity LOW (gently
turn anticlockwise until the knob stops) and
adjust upwards as required. If this does not
solve the problem, set the sensitivity control
in the middle position and hold the helmet close to the target object and
adjust the shade control completely clockwise. If the welding filter stays in
the light state, leave the control set at this point. If the filter switches to the
dark state, turn the shade adjustment back until the filter just switches into
the light state. The filter should now be adjusted correctly. If the welding
filter still does not respond appropriately, please adjust the sensitivity control
again (having previously adjusted the shade control as explained above).
[To achieve optimum results in very unusual circumstances you may need to
perform this process again having first reset the sensitivity control to low.]
RF Sensor
Tig Rating
RF HIGH

Always use genuine SparxLift parts. Never use a welding helmet
without both front and rear cover lenses installed.
Changing the battery
• The SparxLift uses two 3V lithium Ion batteries (CR2032) as a main power source. These batteries are user replaceable and should be replaced immediately when
the battery warning light comes on and/or at least every three years. Always
replace both batteries at the same time with brand new batteries. Never install
previously used batteries in your helmet.
• To replace the batteries slide out the battery holders from either side of
the cartridge and discard the old batteries. Install the new batteries in
the battery holders and slide the battery holders back into the cartridge.
NOTE
Always note the polarity of the batteries and install them as shown in
the diagram and as marked. Batteries rely on good electrical contact to
function properly and so always use clean dry hands and avoid getting
dirt inside the cartridge when exchanging batteries.
www.bullard.com
Welding Helmet Use
New RF High/Low switch for even better RF sensitivity
control. Switch to high for extremely low amp TIG(down
to 1 amp) or when using shielded cables and welders.
Switch to low when working near other welders or in
areas of high RF interference to avoid false triggers and
for general welding.
NOTE
11
Changing the Inner Cover Plate on the SparxLift
• From inside the helmet unclip the installed cover plate from the shell
noting the locking tags on either side of the helmet (see diagram).
• Remove the film from both sides of the new cover plate and then insert
first one side and then the other into the relevant slots on each side of
the helmet.
NOTE
Always check to ensure that the locking tags on each side of the helmet
are properly mated with the slots in the cover plate and that the four
raised guides on the helmet shell are located in the matching slots in
the cover plate.
Maintaining the Auto Lift assembly on the SparxLift
• Assembling and disassembling the Auto Lift assembly on the SparxLift
is a simple process but should be done according to the following
instructions to ensure problem free operation of the helmet.
• Locate the spring (10-3L) in the recess on the outside of the helmet shell
ensuring that the end of the spring is hooked into the hole provided and
pointing upwards. Springs are handed (R/L) and if reversed the Auto Lift
mechanism will not work.
• Place the spring retainer (10-2L) over the spring and ensure that the
tongue of the retainer is located in the slot provided on the side of the
helmet shell.
• Mount the cartridge holder assembly over the spring retainer ensuring
that the notches in the top of the spring retainer are nested into the
matching slots on the cartridge holder assembly.
• Insert the slotted bolt into the hole and over the end of the spring.
• While holding the slotted bolt in place with your thumb, look inside the
shell and locate the black washer over the end of the bolt which should
now be visible on the inside of the shell. Note that the black washer has
internal fins that mate with the end of the slotted bolt.
Cleaning and Storage
• Insert the self tapping screw into the washer and screw it in. Avoid overtightening.
12
• Use a coin to tension the springs on each side by turning the head of
the slotted bolts with a coin. Avoid over tensioning. Test the Auto Lift
mechanism after each adjustment. Usually turning the screw a few
‘clicks’ or about 180 degrees gives perfect results.
Storage and Temperature Range
Your SparxLift welding helmet is strong and durable. It is designed to work
in temperatures between -5C and +55C. Do not use your helmet in very hot
conditions where temperatures exceed +65C. Always store your helmet in a
clean dry place out of the direct sun and protect it from exposure to moisture
or extreme heat (min/max storage temperature is -20C ~ +70C).

Respirator User Manual
� CAUTIONS
• The SparxLift is designed for personal eye and face protection from harmful radiation, sparks and welding spatter produced under normal welding conditions. Please follow good industry and safety practices and use additional protection where necessary.
• Cover plates are strong and of industry standard quality but they are breakable. The SparxLift is a quality welding helmet but is not designed to provide
protection from severe impact such as broken grinding wheels or debris from other broken tools, corrosive liquids, explosions, or other extreme incidents.
We recommend you always adopt a conservative attitude towards safety and take additional precautions as required and recommended in the relevant
safety standards relating to the operation you are undertaking.
•The welding filter is not designed to be waterproof. Please do not use your helmet in the rain or other inclement weather. To do so may reduce the life of
your helmet and result in damage or injury.
• In the event that your helmet or welding filter is exposed to direct contact with, or is submerged in water or other liquid immediately stop using the
helmet, remove the filter cartridge from the shell, remove the batteries from the filter, inspect carefully for damage and if necessary mop-up excess
moisture with a paper towel and then leave to dry in a warm (not hot) place out of direct sunlight. Never place your helmet in an oven or microwave to
dry. Before use perform all normal system checks and if in any doubt contact your Bullard distributor. Your SparxLift helmet is a precision engineered
professional protection product and must be maintained in good condition to ensure your personal protection.
• When working in the vicinity of other welders it is necessary to adopt good industry standard practice and ensure a minimum distance of 1M between
workers. Failure to do so may result in injury or malfunction of the auto darkening mechanism.
• Please do not wear the helmet when you are not welding. In some circumstances the auto darkening mechanism may be unexpectedly triggered resulting in
reduced vision and subsequent injury to yourself or others.
• Bullard does not support the use of SparxLift range of products in combination with any other manufacturers’ products. To use parts that are not
provided by Bullard may void your warranty and result in personal injury. Please use only genuine SparxLift parts and spares as provided by your authorized

For use with Bullard
Airline Respirators
Includes: AC1000 Cool Tube, belt bracket, nylon belt and heat shield.
Belt Bracket
Function: The AC1000 is designed to supply a continuous flow of cool air to certain Bullard
supplied air respirators. Please consult the NIOSH approval matrix in your respirator
user manual to verify that the AC1000 is NIOSH approved for your specific configuration.
All Bullard parts must be present and properly assembled to constitute a NIOSHapproved respirator.
Air Temperature
Control Knob
NOTE
The AC100035 is designed to operate at low pressures.
Warning
Before using this product, read and follow all directions and warnings, including
those in the respirator instruction manual. Failure to follow these instructions
could result in death or serious injury.
Warning
Warning
This climate control system is not recommended for cooling the air supply when
the air temperature is less than 70°F. Since the system may cool the incoming air
by more than 30°F, it is possible for ice to form in the breathing tube and reduce
the airflow. Failure to observe this warning could result in death or serious injury.
T he respirator’s air source must supply clean, breathable air, Grade D or better, at
all times. The respirator does not purify air or filter out contaminants.
Connecting the respirator to a line supplying nitrogen or other harmful gases could
cause death or serious injury.
Failure to follow these instructions could result in death or serious injury.
Air Quality Requirements
Respirable air must be supplied to the point-of-attachment of the BULLARD air supply hose that
is part of the NIOSH approved system. The point-of-attachment is where the air supply hose
connects to the fitting that contains a pressure gauge used to monitor the pressure of the air
provided to you.
Locate the source of supplied air in a clean environment far enough from your work site to
ensure the air remains contaminant-free. Always use an inlet filter on your air source and any
monitors and alarms as necessary to assure clean, breathable air at all times.
Supplied breathing air MUST meet or exceed the requirements for Type 1 gaseous air described
in the Compressed Gas Association Commodity Specification G-7.1 (Grade D or higher quality)
as specified by Federal Law 42 CFR, Part 84, Subpart J, 84.141(b) and 29 CFR 1910.134(i)(1)(ii).
The requirements for Grade D breathable air include:
Oxygen.....................................................................................................................................19.5-23.5%
Hydrocarbons in mg/m3 of gas.......................................................................................5 mg/m3 max.
Carbon monoxide................................................................................................................ 10 ppm max.
Carbon dioxide...............................................................................................................1,000 ppm max.
Odor .................................................................................................................... No pronounced odor*
No toxic contaminants at levels that make air unsafe to breathe.
* Specific measurement of odor in gases is impractical. Air normally may have a slight odor. The
presence of a prolonged odor should render the air unsatisfactory.
Air Pressure
Continually monitor the air pressure at the point-of-attachment while operating the respirator.
A reliable air pressure gauge must be present to monitor the pressure.
Warning
Failure to supply the minimum required pressure at the point-of-attachment for
your hose length will reduce airflow and could result in death or serious injury.
It is important to operate the Bullard climate control device in the prescribed pressure range
for the particular Bullard respirator you are using. Operating the correct pressure range will
insure that the correct air flow is delivered to the respirator and will maintain the NIOSH
