Weld Purge Monitors® help to 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. The monitors are useful for applications where a high quality weld is required.

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques (HFT®) offers a low cost weld purge monitor, PurgEye® 100, which can help eliminate post-weld cleaning costs.

A customer recently said: “With its digital residual oxygen level LCD screen readouts measuring as low as 100 ppm and its large user friendly viewing screen making it easier for me to read. The PurgEye 100 also has a great accuracy of residual oxygen, with speedy measurement's being displayed in seconds."

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.

It has a long life sensor, which has an approximate 18 month life before it requires changing. A low sensor indicator appears on the screen, warning that a new sensor is required. Once the icon appears, it gives the user adequate time to obtain a new sensor, which is fitted like changing a battery.

Ron Sewell, Chairman of HFT, said: “All of HFT’s weld purge monitors and inflatable tube, pipe and pipeline weld purging systems are manufactured in the UK. We do not sacrifice on quality. We guarantee to help you achieve zero colour welds."
