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 resistant properties.

What are the benefits of a Pipe Purging / Weld Purge Monitor?

  • Saves money. Removing any guesswork or estimates.
  • Saves time. Inert gas consumption is significantly reduced.

Pipe Purging Experts Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT®'s PurgEye® 200 Weld Purge Monitor® will ensure zero colour, non-oxidised welds are achieved every time, with accurate readings down to 10 ppm.

Luke Keane, Technical Sales Manager for HFT® said: “The PurgEye® 200 IP65 rated is our most advanced, portable, hand held, 10 ppm Weld Purge Monitor®, perfect for achieving high quality titanium, zirconium, high specification stainless steel and nickel alloy joints every time!"

The PurgEye® 200 now features PurgeNet™, a networking device that allows accessories to be connected. These include an automatic welding machine interface so that the oxygen level in the vicinity of the weld can be continuously monitored and the welding machine can be switched on or off according to pre-set oxygen levels, external audible and visual warning devices and a dew point monitor.

The PurgEye® 200 has an OLED (organic light emitting diode) display, which will give bright, clear and sharp readings for viewing at distances and wide angles. These OLED displays are mainly symbol, rather than text based, making the menus internationally comprehensible. 

This exceptionally advanced instrument is able to operate from rechargeable batteries or mains power. Along with loud, pre-settable audio alarms for rising or falling oxygen levels, the PurgEye® 200 comes complete with a faster response long life sensor and integral electro-mechanical pump to extract samples from a weld purge zone, in the event that there is insufficient flow rate or positive pressure to activate the sensor correctly.

PurgeLog™ Software is provided to record Weld Purging results and provides quality control documents for each weld.

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 ...
