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 way to measure the oxygen content within the welding zone is by using a Weld Purge Monitor®.

Leading the way in Weld Purging Technology, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT®'s PurgEye® Nano is ideal for welding titanium and high end stainless steel, where oxygen levels are required to be as low as 10 ppm. 

Luke Keane, Technical Sales Manager for HFT® said: “By knowing the exact level of oxygen inside the pipe at all times, the welder knows when to start welding for high quality results. The PurgEye® Nano is our basic entry level 10 ppm Monitor, which means it is perfect for restricted budgets. It's a simple plug and play monitor, ideal for welding titanium, stainless steel and other reactive metals such as zirconium.”

With leak-tight connectors for weld purge hoses, the lightweight PurgEye® Nano can be used with optional accessory hand pump and gas sampling probe. The PurgEye® Nano has been developed for weld purging where data logging, alarms and machine control are not necessarily required. The monitor has been developed with a unique long life sensor that has a warm up time under 60 seconds.

Ron Sewell, Chairman for HFT® said: “All of our Weld Purge Monitors® and Inflatable Tube, Pipe and Pipeline Weld Purging Systems as well as our inflatable welding enclosures are manufactured in the UK. We do not sacrifice on quality and guarantee 100% craftsmanship.”

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 ...
