New packaging PurgEye® 100 Sensor

The PurgEye® 100 Sensors are being shipped in new packaging.

New packing PE100 (ED)

This is a way to increase the sensor life significantly with this new storage method.

Spare sensors are packed at source by HFT®  inside a small sealed compartment to prevent oxygen from entering.

Once the tiny amount of oxygen inside the sealed volume, has been consumed, a partial vacuum has been created, just leaving the residual atmospheric nitrogen behind, that protects the sensor and leaves it inert until the package is opened for use.

In this way, the average life has been raised close to 20 months or more.*

Our PurgEye® 100 Weld Purge Monitor® has a “low sensor” warning signal, which normal oxygen monitors do not have, so the user knows that when his replacement sensor arrives, it will last much longer than it would with other oxygen sensors.

Spare sensors are sold singly or as multiples subject to preference. In addition to increased life, this sensor packaging affords an extra degree of protection to the special contacts and the sealing membrane on top.

The packaging will protect the sensor from scuffs and damage during transit and will keep it clean during storage.

Use PurgEye® 100 sensors with this unique packaging and get a much longer life of 20 months or more from your instrument use.

HFT® are always considering the needs of the customer. By using our scientific knowledge and background, we are able to develop and engineer new ideas which also help the customer save money.


Other sensors in the industry, have a low lifetime. They start to deplete immediately after manufacture. Allowing shipping time to the sub contractor who will keep them in stock for some time, then to the reseller who will then send them to the welding distributor after which it will be shipped to the Customer who in turn might wait some time before using or inserting the spare sensor. 

It can then take many months before they are put into use. The average life of most other sensors is then 10 – 12 months.
