Oxygen Monitor for Field Welding


Welding under site conditions introduces problems that are not found in normal factory environments. Exposure to heat and cold, sand and dust, damp and wet atmospheres place demands on standard Weld Purge Monitors® for which they are not designed to meet

The PurgEye® Site, available from Weld Purging Experts Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® is protected inside a secure, safe, waterproof and dustproof, tough carry case, perfect for field welding. 

Georgia Gascoyne, CEO for HFT® said: “Field welding does not eliminate the need to measure oxygen levels when welding metals such as stainless steel, zirconium and titanium. Often, welders are left to guess at purge levels, due to some Weld Purge Monitors® not being able to handle various on site conditions.”

“The PurgEye® Site is our on-site monitor, that has been specifically designed for extreme conditions. By using the PurgEye® Site, welders can ensure non-oxidised, zero colour welds are achieved regardless of conditions. 

The PurgEye® Site has a fast response, long life sensor and it is equipped with PurgeNet™, allowing the monitor to connect to a variety of accessories. One of the accessories, an automatic welding machine interface, allows controls to be based upon the oxygen level, to prevent welding if that level is too high. Other accessories include a traffic light visual indication system and a temperature gauge.

With the housing case open, the PurgEye® Site is IP65 rated and IP68 rated with the lid closed. The PurgEye® Site measures oxygen levels very accurately from 1,000 ppm, right down to 1 ppm (accurate to 10 ppm).

The large, bright, 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.

Oxygen levels can be indicated by the PurgEye® Site gas analyser 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 – 250V, single phase A.C.

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

Save Time and Money with a High Quality Inflatable Purging System

When welding tubes and pipes made of alloys such as stainless, duplex and chrome, it is important to eliminate the oxygen internally with an inert gas. This will help prevent oxidation, discolouration and will ensure a good internal weld profile. Weld Purging long pipelines can be costly and time ...

Eliminate the Thoria and Maintain the High Performance with Blue-Tipped MultiStrike® Tungsten Electrodes

Thoria, found in thoriated Tungsten Electrodes is a radio-toxic compound and emits mainly alpha particles, which are harmful if released inside the digestive tract or inside the lungs where they act as a carcinogen. Thoriated Tungsten Electrodes therefore pose a risk to welders during grinding.  W ...
