On-Site Weld Purge Monitor® with PurgeNet™

Welders often face difficulties when working under the conditions experienced on-site. When welding critical joints on-site the challenges might come from exposure to extremes of heat and cold, harmful sand and dust and even hazardous fumes. Therefore using an expensive Weld Purge Monitor® in such conditions may not always be ideal.

To overcome these challenges, Weld Purging Experts and Innovators Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® have designed a virtually non-destructible Weld Purge Monitor® for on-site conditions. Designated the PurgEye® Site, this new instrument is a guarded oxygen monitor in a secure, safe, waterproof and dustproof box, IP68 with the lid open and IP65 rated with the lid closed.

CEO Georgia Gascoyne said: “The latest addition to the Family Range of the PurgEye® Weld Purge Monitors® is the PurgEye® Site, measuring oxygen levels from 1,000 ppm, right down to 1 ppm (accurate to 10 ppm). It is portable, robust and has been specifically designed for site conditions.”

“The PurgEye® Site has a new design long life sensor with a very fast response time, ultra sharp OLED display and is equipped with PurgeNet™ for smart weld purging, automatic welding machine interface and traffic light visual warning accessory.”

The large OLED display allows the data to be easily read and is mainly symbol based, rather than text. The display does not need a backlight and can be viewed from greater angles than LED screens.

The on-site oxygen analyser reads oxygen levels in parts per million (ppm) or percentage, depending on user preference. Flow detection ensures accurate reading of gas samples, along with a blocked filter icon and power on / off with a standby button for sensor warm up.

The small, low volume, almost indestructible case, can be carried anywhere and the PurgEye® Site used either with its internal battery, which lasts up to 10 hours or connected to mains electricity from 90 – 250 v, single phase A.C.

By using the PurgEye® Site, welders can ensure non-oxidised, zero colour welds are achieved regardless of conditions. Using a Weld Purge Monitor® also eliminates guesswork.

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. The Company has immense technical collateral gathered and published, that the Welding and Engineering Fraternity can access, rely on and use to solve many of the difficulties experienced while purging welds”
