Global Weld Purging Experts Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® have unveiled their updated PurgEye® 100, with new features that place this monitor at the forefront of Weld Purge Monitoring.
Weld Purging requires the removal of oxygen and it is important that welders know exactly when it is safe to start welding to ensure welds remain free from oxidation. This state-of-the-art Weld Purge Monitor® accurately reads down to 100ppm, suitable for welding stainless steel.
Technical Sales Manager Luke Keane said: “We are very excited to be launching our new PurgEye® 100. Guesswork is eliminated with the monitor and welders can know exactly what the oxygen content is before, during and after welding.”
The hand held PurgEye® 100 now features a metal housing, which has been upgraded from a plastic one. Readings are from atmospheric oxygen level (20.94%), right down to 100 ppm (0.01%) of oxygen.
The PurgEye® 100 is IP65 rated and comes with leak-tight push buttons, auto calibration features, vacuum-sealed leak-tight probe assembly and wrist/neck strap.
Boasting a clear, easy to read LCD screen, the PurgEye® 100’s display features a low battery icon as well as the low sensor 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 45 years of innovation, design and manufacturing experience. The Argweld® product line is the only one to offer a complete Family of PurgEye® Weld Purge Monitors® to measure oxygen levels from atmospheric content (20.94%) down to 1 ppm (accurate to 10 ppm) for all applications and to suit every budget.

Weld purging is the act of removing, from the vicinity of the joint, oxygen, water vapour and any other gases or vapours that might be harmful to a welding joint. Such gases may combine with the metal to form undesirable compounds that may reduce corrosion resistance or may be instrumental in creating cracks or other structural defects in metals.
