Highly Accurate 100 ppm Weld Purge Monitor for Welding Stainless Steel

Measuring the oxygen level with a Weld Purge Monitor® before, during and after welding stainless steel is crucial to achieve oxide free, zero colour welds that are metallurgically sound. It is important not to use “oxygen analyzers” or “oxygen safety monitors” as they are calibrated for accuracy only at ambient conditions.

The low cost, hand held, battery operated PurgEye® 100, designed and developed by Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® is perfect for welding stainless steel, reading accurately from atmospheric oxygen level (20.94%), right down to 100 parts per million (ppm) of oxygen

Ron Sewell, Chairman for HFT® said: “We are extremely proud of the PurgEye® 100, our Flagship Product. This monitor is specifically designed for weld purging and is available at a competitive price, so that it will pay for itself in just a few welds.

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.

With a clear, easy to read LCD screen, the PurgEye® 100 boasts a 24 mm high display with features such as a low battery icon as well as the low sensor 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). 

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® have a Worldwide Exclusive Distributor network, which can be found at www.huntingdonfusion.com.

Weld Purging Post Weld Heat Treated (PWHT) Pipework

Welding processes can weaken metals by imparting residual stresses into a material, leading to a reduction in corrosion resistance properties. Post Weld Heat Treatment (PWHT) is regularly used to retain the strength of a metal when welding certain materials including high strength stainless steel a ...

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 ...

Long Distance Weld Purge Monitoring

Often when welding lengths of tubes and pipework fabrications of 20 metres or more, measuring the purge gas might not always easy. Under these conditions, there is a risk of contamination of the gas exiting the weld zone, leaving the welders uncertain about their welds and welding procedure.  Weld ...
