Oxygen Weld Monitors not sufficient for Purging

Oxygen Weld Monitors not sufficient for Purging, opt for a Weld Purge Monitor ® instead

For years now, companies have been using relatively low cost oxygen weld monitors and gas analysers for weld purging.

Such monitors are designed and calibrated for accuracy at atmospheric oxygen level. Whereas for weld purging the accuracy needs to be at the other end of the scale.

Companies using the incorrect product will have to spend time and money cutting out and repairing rejected, heavily oxidised welds.  Then have to spend further money on correct Weld Purging Monitors ®.

With our scientific background, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT ® are the Worlds leading innovators, designers and manufacturers of Weld Purging Products.

In the 1970’s HFT ® invented the Weld Purge Monitor ® using proper scientific knowledge which shows that oxygen weld monitors and gas analysers (analyzers) are not sufficiently accurate for weld purging and for good clean welds.

As a result of many years of development, HFT ® now have a Family Range of Argweld ® PurgEye ® Weld Purge Monitors ® to measure oxygen levels from atmospheric (20.94%) down to as low as 1 ppm (0.0001%).

Within that range we have Weld Purge Monitors ® to suit every application that will ensure oxide free, zero colour welds are achieved.

Weld purge monitors versus oxygen weld monitors

The PurgEye ® Family Range comprises:

  • PurgEye ® 100, the worlds leading low cost, hand held IP65 rated monitor which reads down to 100 ppm, ideal for welding stainless steel.
  • PurgEye ® 200, hand held, rechargeable battery driven monitor, which reads down to 10 ppm.
  • PurgEye ® 300 Nano, low cost, mains power driven monitor.
  • PurgEye ® 300 lightweight monitor, which comes with software for recording purging results.
  • PurgEye ® 500 uses an internal electro-mechanical pump to draw the gas across the sensor and includes a lifespan sensor with virtually no maintenance required.
  • PurgEye ® 600 is our touch screen model, measuring from atmospheric level down to 10 ppm and includes data capture via USB using PurgeLog™ software.
  • PurgEye ® 1000 can measure oxygen levels more than 20 metres away from the weld.

Our extensive range of Weld Purge Monitors ® are ideal for all types of industries such as the aerospace, pharmaceutical, oil and gas and food and drink, to name only a few.

Guaranteed to help you achieve corrosion free welds, a major advantage for the requirements of high-end Quality Control systems.
