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 cost, hand held, battery operated PurgEye® 100, designed and developed by Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® is perfect for obtaining zero colour, oxide free welds in stainless steel, reading accurately from atmospheric oxygen level (20.94%), right down to 100 ppm (0.01%).

The PurgEye® 100 is IP65 rated and comes with long life sensor, leak-tight push buttons, auto calibration and a vacuum-sealed leak-tight probe assembly. The monitor has a clear, easy to read LCD screen 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 1970s 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.”

It is important not to use alternative low cost oxygen analyzers or other oxygen safety monitors as they are calibrated under ambient conditions and therefore unsuitable for measuring purge levels down to 0.01% as the PurgEye® 100 does.

Low Cost Monitor for Welding Titanium and Stainless Steel

Titanium and stainless steel are both reactive alloys. When they are heated during the welding process, they will react with any air that is present, causing oxidation, which can lead to a loss of corrosion resistance properties. Shielding the metal with an inert gas is therefore crucial and one wa ...

Accurately Measure the Dew Point During Purging

During purging welders need to measure the oxygen content but also need to measure the ‘dew point'. The dewpoint is the temperature where condensation begins and water will condense on the material being welded. This can affect the weld properties significantly. Georgia Gascoyne, CEO for HFT® sai ...

Pipe Purging Monitor

What is Weld Purging? Weld Purging is the displacement of oxygen by an inert gas (usually argon) from the vicinity of a weld, before, during and after welding. It is crucial to displace the oxygen when welding many metals to help achieve oxide free, zero colour welds with no loss of corrosion resis ...

Reliable Oxygen Analyzer for Welding Titanium

When welding titanium, it is essential that the oxygen level surrounding the weld is purged down to as low as 50 ppm. Measuring the oxygen level with a reliable oxygen analyzer is the most efficient way to know exactly when to commence welding. Specifically designed for Purge Chamber welding, the ...
