A new design for HFT

Weld Purge Monitors(R) are an essential instrument to help obtain non-oxidised, zero colour welds by monitoring the oxygen content, ideal when purging with inert gas, when welding metals such as stainless steel, titanium and nickel alloy where a high quality weld is required.

Advancing in the science of manufacturing beyond other designs, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques’(R) (HFT) market leading PurgEye(R) 100 can help to eliminate the post weld cleaning costs. It is these costs that otherwise make the high cost of each weld ultra significant.

Comments form HFT

Michaela Reay, Marketing Associate for HFT said: “The PurgEye 100 is our low cost, IP65 rated, hand held unit, which reads from atmospheric level (20.94%) down to 100 parts per million (ppm). The PurgEye 100 replaces our previous, out of date MKV monitor, which some companies are still using today.”

Unlike the MKV, the PurgEye 100 comes with innovative leak-tight push buttons, auto calibration features, vacuum-sealed leak-tight probe assembly, wrist/neck strap, optional rubber housing protector and tripod mount.

Sensors and monitoring

The newly designed, extra long life sensor allows the user to continue to use the monitor for up to 18 months before the low sensor indicator appears on the screen. Once that icon appears, it provides the user with adequate time to obtain a new sensor, which can be fitted on site without any complicated electrical wiring to change and the unit can be calibrated easily by the user.

The PurgEye 100 has a clear, easy to read LCD screen, offering a 24 mm high display, which is approximately a 41% larger display than used previously. The display also shows a low battery icon. When the monitor is not in use, an automatic sleep mode activates to conserve battery life.
