Weld purge monitors are an essential instrument to help obtain non-oxidised, zero colour welds by monitoring the oxygen content, when welding metals such as stainless, duplex and chrome steels, titanium and nickel alloys where a high quality weld is required.
Advancing in the science of manufacturing beyond other designs, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT’s PurgEye 100 can help to eliminate the post weld cleaning costs. It is these costs that otherwise make the high cost of each weld ultra significant.
The PurgEye 100 is IP65 rated and comes with leak-tight push buttons, auto calibration features, vacuum-sealed leak-tight probe assembly, wrist/neck strap and tripod mount.
The extra long life sensor provides approximately 18 months life before it requires changing. A low sensor indicator will appear on the screen, warning that a new sensor is required.
Once that icon appears, it provides the user with adequate time to obtain a new sensor, which can be fitted like changing a battery and the monitor can be re-calibrated easily by the user.
As already quoted, the PurgEye 100 has a clear, easy to read LCD screen, with a 24 mm high display. The display also shows a low battery icon. When the monitor is not in use, an automatic sleep mode activates to conserve battery life.
The Weld Purge Monitor was invented by HFT in the 1970’s and with over 40 years of innovation, design and manufacturing experience, the company now has a Family of PurgEye Weld Purge Monitors to measure oxygen levels from atmospheric content (20.94%) down to 1 ppm (accurate to 10 ppm).
