Weld Purge Monitor® for the Nuclear Industry

With the growth of Nuclear Power activities around the World, there is a large volume of stainless steel pipework that will need to be welded to a high standard, with no oxidation that can lead to loss of corrosion resistance.  

To meet the higher standards of welding that the Nuclear Industry expects, a unique Weld Purge Monitor® has been designed and developed by Weld Purging Experts Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® that reads all the way from atmospheric level of oxygen (20.94%), down to one part per million (0.0001%), in one instrument.

CEO for HFT®, Georgia Gascoyne said: “The PurgEye® 600 incorporates the features and benefits of all the other Weld Purge Monitor® designs in the HFT® Family Range, but for the first time, this one instrument has a full range of measurement reading from atmospheric concentration (20.94%), down to 1 ppm, accurate to 10 ppm. Readings are indicated either as parts per million or in percentage, breaking all technological boundaries in one instrument.”

Using ground breaking technology, the PurgEye® 600 has a long life sensor that won't need replacing or recalibrating. This high level, advanced instrument has been designed with a large, full colour touch screen (3.2"/ 81 mm) and on-screen graph displaying the oxygen levels during the welding process.

USB data logging capability allows the operator the ease of data transfer without the need for a computer connection. These stable, accurate results can be logged for each weld, using the PurgeLog™ Software.

Not only has HFT® been able to achieve these features, they have also included an internal sampling pump with gas filtration, which means there is no requirement for an external hand pump.  

Quick fit / disconnect, leak tight fittings are manufactured as standard on the PurgEye® 600. In addition, control alarms will activate in the event of rising or falling oxygen level, which can be pre-set by the user.

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

Pipe Purging accurately down to 10 ppm

Measuring the oxygen level during Pipe Purging is crucial. Stainless steel has to be monitored down to at least 100 ppm, however alloys such as titanium and zirconium may need to be monitored down to as low as 10 ppm.

Oxide Free Titanium Welds with the PurgEye® Desk

The Welding Institute states that “Titanium is a reactive metal; it will burn in pure oxygen at 600°C and in nitrogen at around 800°C. Oxygen and nitrogen will also diffuse into titanium at temperatures above 400°C raising the tensile strength but embrittling the metal. Despite this reactivity tita ...
