Portable 10 ppm Weld Purge Monitor

With ever-improving standards in Quality Control, measuring the oxygen level around welds before, during and after welding reactive metals is crucial. 

The hand held PurgEye® 200 is a Weld Purging Monitor® specifically developed and designed for use when welding titanium, zirconium, high specification stainless steel and nickel alloy joints, so that the user can produce metallurgically sound and oxide-free welds every time. 

Manufactured by Weld Purging Experts Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® the PurgEye® 200 is equipped with PurgeNet™, allowing accessories to be connected. These include an automatic welding machine interface so that the oxygen level in the vicinity of the weld can be continuously monitored and the welding machine can be switched on or off according to pre-set oxygen levels, an external audible and visual warning devices and a dew point monitor.

Georgia Gascoyne, CEO of Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® said: “The PurgEye® 200 hand held 10 ppm monitor will ensure zero colour, non oxidised welds are achieved every time, with accurate readings down to 10 ppm.”

The PurgEye® 200 has an OLED (organic light emitting diode) display, which will give bright, clear and sharp readings for viewing at distances and wide angles. These OLED displays are mainly symbol, rather than text based, making the menus internationally comprehensible. 

This exceptionally advanced instrument is able to operate from rechargeable batteries or mains power. Along with loud, pre-settable audio alarms for rising or falling oxygen levels, the PurgEye® 200 comes complete with a faster response long life sensor and integral electro-mechanical pump to extract samples from a weld purge zone, in the event that there is insufficient flow rate or positive pressure to activate the sensor correctly.

The PurgEye® 200 Weld Purge Monitor® reads down to 1 ppm (very accurate as far down as 10 ppm). It is IP65 rated, which means it can be used in very demanding areas where instruments are used on site, such as in desert or tropical conditions.

PurgeLog™ Software is provided to record Weld Purging results and provides quality control documents for each weld.

Oxygen Monitor for Welding

Inert gas welding requires the elimination of oxygen from the weld zone during the welding of reactive metals including stainless steel. Before the welding process begins, the oxygen level must be reduced to a required minimum, which is less than 100 ppm when welding stainless steel.  The low cos ...

Low Cost Weld Purge Plugs for Tube and Pipe Weld Purging

Due to tight budgets, welders sometimes have to construct their own Weld Purging Equipment, often made from materials such as paper, card, sponge or foam. Homemade dams made from such materials can often lead to loss of welds when they leak or slip from position thus flooding the welding zone with ...
