HFT helping to ensure non-oxidised zero colour welds

Welders often face difficulties when working onsite. When welding critical joints onsite, challenges might come from exposure to extremes of heat and cold, harmful sand and dust and even hazardous fumes. Therefore, using an expensive Weld Purge Monitor® in such conditions may not always be ideal.

To overcome these challenges, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques (HFT®) has designed a virtually non-destructible Weld Purge Monitor specifically for onsite conditions. Designated the PurgEye® Site, this new instrument is a guarded oxygen monitor in a secure, safe, waterproof and dustproof box, IP68 with the lid open and IP65 rated with the lid closed.

By using the PurgEye Site, welders can ensure non-oxidised, zero colour welds are achieved regardless of conditions.

Its large OLED display allows the data to be easily read and is primarily symbol based, rather than text. The display does not need a backlight and can be viewed from greater angles than LED screens.

The onsite oxygen analyser can read oxygen levels in parts per million (ppm) or percentage, depending on user preference. Flow detection ensures accurate reading of gas samples, along with a blocked filter icon and power on/off with a standby button for sensor warm up. 

In a small, low volume case, the PurgEye Site can be carried anywhere and can be used either with its internal battery, which lasts up to 10 hrs or connected to mains electricity from 90 - 250 v, single phase AC.

HFT’s CEO, Georgia Gascoyne, said: “The latest addition to the family range of the PurgEye Weld Purge Monitors is the PurgEye Site, measuring oxygen levels from 1000 ppm, right down to 1 ppm (accurate to 10 ppm). It is portable, robust and has been specifically designed for site conditions.”

“The PurgEye Site has a new design long life sensor with a very fast response time, ultra-sharp OLED display and is equipped with PurgeNetTM for smart weld purging, automatic welding machine interface and traffic light visual warning accessory.”
