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.
