Keep a Low Cost ‘Eye’ on Your Weld Purge

Weld Purge Monitors® are an essential instrument to help obtain non-oxidised, zero colour welds by monitoring the oxygen content, when welding metals such as stainless, duplex and chrome steels, titanium and nickel alloys where a high quality weld is required.

Advancing in the science of manufacturing beyond other designs, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT®'s market leading, low cost PurgEye® 100 can help to eliminate the post weld cleaning costs. It is these costs that otherwise make the high cost of each weld ultra significant.

A customer recently said: “The PurgEye® 100 is one of the best, if not the best residual oxygen detector instruments on the market today. With its digital residual oxygen level LCD screen readouts measuring as low as 100 ppm and its large user friendly viewing screen making it easier for me to read. The PurgEye® 100 also has a great accuracy of residual oxygen, with speedy measurement's being displayed within seconds.”

The PurgEye® 100 is IP65 rated and comes with leak-tight push buttons, auto calibration features, vacuum-sealed leak-tight probe assembly, wrist/neck strap and tripod mount.

The extra long life sensor provides approximately 18 months life before it requires changing. A low sensor indicator will appear on the screen, warning that a new sensor is required. Once that icon appears, it provides the user with adequate time to obtain a new sensor, which can be fitted like changing a battery and the monitor can be re-calibrated easily by the user.
 
As already quoted, the PurgEye® 100 has a clear, easy to read LCD screen, with a 24 mm high display. The display also shows a low battery icon. When the monitor is not in use, an automatic sleep mode activates to conserve battery life.

The Weld Purge Monitor® was invented by HFT® in the 1970's and with over 40 years of innovation, design and manufacturing experience, the company now has a Family of PurgEye® Weld Purge Monitors® to measure oxygen levels from atmospheric content (20.94%) down to 1 ppm (accurate to 10 ppm).

Ron Sewell, Chairman for HFT® said: “All of Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT®'s Weld Purge Monitors® and Inflatable Tube, Pipe and Pipeline Weld Purging Systems are manufactured in the UK. We do not sacrifice on quality. We guarantee to help you achieve zero colour welds, time and time again.”

New: Unique 10 ppm Colour Touch Screen Weld Purge Monitor®

It is essential to monitor the oxygen level when welding reactive metals. Metals that are classed as ‘reactive' (titanium, zirconium and nickel alloys) are sensitive to oxygen when heated. When welding these metals, the oxygen must be purged from the welding zone, down to as low as 10 parts per mil ...

Heavy-duty Flow and Line Stopping with Steel Plugs

There are occasions where pipes need to be repaired whilst liquids are still flowing. Heavy-duty flow stopping and line plugging may require plugs and stoppers to have long immersion in chemicals or exposure to high temperatures, which many such items are not capable of withstanding. Providing th ...

Weld Purging: Replace Paper, Foam and other unsuitable Materials with Argweld® Weld Purge Dams

Weld Purging is essential when welding tubes and pipes made of reactive metals such as stainless steels, titanium and zirconium. Usually weld zones are confined with purge dams so that the use of argon purge gas is limited and waiting times are reduced. Homemade dams fabricated from paper, sponge ...
