Georgia Gascoyne, CEO of HFT, said: “Fabtech 2016 will be the launch platform to demonstrate our updated range of PurgEye® Weld Purge Monitors®. We will be exhibiting at the show with our US Partner COB Industries”

HFT will be located in Booth N7322 at the show.

The company’s updates include organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays for brighter, clearer and sharper readings. OLED displays are designed to enhance viewing at greater distances and at wider angles. The displays are primarily symbol as opposed to text based, meaning that menus are easily understandable regardless of the language that the user speaks.

The latest PurgEye 200 will operate using either batteries or mains power. Charging can be carried out from a dock and battery life will be much longer than its predecessor.

The hand held PurgEye 200 will feature PurgeNetTM. This allows for the addition of standard accessories, which will allow the weld purge monitor to be linked with automatic welding machines – such as orbital welders.

The PurgEye 300 Nano will be a slightly smaller instrument. Software for recording purge values against time is part of the package, with the monitor being able to control external devices (such as warning lights and alarms, weld sets according to preset high and low oxygen levels).

The PurgEye Site is a new addition. It will be delivered in a robust IP65 sealed case, which is virtually non-destructible and ideal for site conditions. The unit will provide up to 10 hours of weld purge monitoring.

It has an integral pump so that it can be used to extract samples from a weld purge zone, where there is insufficient flow rate or positive pressure to activate the sensor correctly. The pump can be used to extract gas samples on a timed basis if required. All accessories fit inside the case and there is a carry handle on top of the lid.

The PurgEye 500 will be renamed the PurgEye Desk and it will be suitable for indoor applications.

The PurgEye 1000 remote weld purge monitor will adopt new features. However, a key development is the size of the remote sensing head. This is now manufactured from brushed stainless steel and is considerably smaller so that it can be used in pipe diameters of as small as 1in.
