PurgEye weld purge monitor

Leading the way in design and development technology in Weld Purge Monitoring, the hand held, battery powered PurgEye 200 Weld Purge Monitor meets the needs of higher welding specifications requiring oxygen levels down to as low as 10 parts per million (ppm).

Designed and manufactured by Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT, the PurgEye® 200 is totally waterproof and dustproof rated to IP65 Standard, has warning icons on the large screen to show low battery, low sensor conditions and also displays oxygen readings in percentage or in ppm very accurately down to 10 ppm.

Luke Keane, Distributor Support for HFT said: “Weld Purge Monitors are an essential instrument to help obtain non-oxidised, zero colour welds by monitoring the oxygen level when welding metals such as titanium, zirconium, nickel alloys and high purity stainless steels where high quality and strong welds are required free from metallurgical imperfections. Even though the PurgEye 200 helps to produce these important zero colour joints it is probably the lowest cost Weld Purge Monitor of its kind.”

The state of the art PurgEye 200 contains an internal electro-mechanical pump for drawing samples of purge gas automatically over the sensor before discharging it to the atmosphere.

The long life sensor eliminates the need for changing cells once every year or so, as is the case with wet cell instruments. Alarm signals can be given by the PurgEye 200 to show when the oxygen level is within or outside the required ppm range for perfect weld joints.

The Weld Purge Monitor was invented by Huntingdon Fusion Techniques Ltd in the 1970's and with over 40 years of innovation, design and manufacturing experience, the company now has a Family Range of PurgEye Weld Purge Monitors to measure oxygen levels from atmospheric content (20.94%) down to 1 ppm (accurate to 10 ppm) at which point no discolouration in welds of any kind should occur.

By striving for zero colour welds, companies can eliminate the post-weld cleaning costs of oxidised welds, which can be very high and thereby pay for their top specification Weld Purge Monitor® in only a few welds.
