The Pressurized Air Welder Cooling System is an apparatus designed to keep welding workers cool via a torso-worn harness operated by compressed air.
Inventor Joseph Clark, a welder from Philpot, KY has created an apparatus designed to keep welding workers cool via a torso-worn harness operated by compressed air.
As a welder, Inventor Clark realizes just how hot it can become while wearing welding gear, working in hot ambient temperatures, and also dealing with the heat generated by welding operations. One solution is a fan that blows air on the worker. However, this is not practical for those performing gas metal arc welding (GMAW) as the moving air will also disperse the inert or active gas around the welding gun. Working in this heat can cause many different heat-related illnesses including heat stroke, heat exhaustion, and even death. Inventor Clark has created a means by which workers engaged in welding operations can be kept cool, thus avoiding potentially dangerous medical situations.
This clever new invention is worn like a vest underneath a welding jacket. It prevents heat stroke and heat exhaustion. It eliminates muscle cramps and dehydration. While great for welders, the device adapts for anyone working in a stationary position. It is easy to manufacture. The use of the Pressurized Air Welder Cooling System provides welders working in a hot environment a means of keeping cool in a discrete manner that is quick, easy, and effective.
