The technology behind Miller’s CoolBand is a cooling system that is inserted inside a welding helmet, runs on a rechargeable battery, and comprises strategically located air vents. Downward air vents provide constant air movement over a welder’s face and temples, and upward air vents provide air movement over a welder’s entire head. This air movement can lower the temperature inside a welding helmet by 8 degrees.

Miller’s exclusive CoolBand™ headgear-integrated cooling system prevents helmet lenses and glasses from fogging, keeps welders cooler and comfortable throughout the day.

In both summer and winter, foggy, steamed-up safety glasses and helmet lenses are problems in most welding environments. Wearing a helmet with safety glasses—an often-overlooked regulation—makes for a tight environment with humid air. Miller’s CoolBand virtually eliminates fogged-up lenses and glasses, making operators much more effective and productive.

Welder Brian Mears says that, with his old helmet, he raised and lowered his hood hundreds of times per day to wipe sweat from his forehead and fog from his glasses and that the new helmet has decreased that activity by 60 to 65 percent. He believes that a job that used to take him 2 hours with his old helmet now takes him an hour and 40 minutes. With that type of productivity increase, apparently the right helmet can make you a better welder.
