HFT: Keep your eye on the purge

Published by
Energy Global,

The HFT® MKV Weld Purge Monitors®, along with various other brands of oxygen monitors, are sent in from customers looking to upgrade to our PurgEye® 100, a Weld Purge Monitor®.

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® offers a Weld Purge Monitor® exchange replacement scheme, so that companies can be certain of having the latest and the best technology in the form of the PurgEye® 100 IP65.

Michaela Reay, Marketing Associate for HFT® said: “The PurgEye® 100 is our low cost, IP65 rated, hand held unit, which reads down to 100 parts per million (ppm). Our replacement scheme is a fantastic deal, where customers can upgrade their old monitors for our state of the art PurgEye® 100, for a special price.”

The PurgEye® 100 comes with innovative push buttons, auto calibration features, enlarged screen, low sensor indicator, sleep mode, vacuum-sealed leak-tight probe assembly, wrist or neck strap, optional rubber housing protector, tripod mount and so much more.

Weld Purge Monitors® are an essential instrument to help obtain non-oxidised, zero colour welds by monitoring the oxygen level when welding metals such as stainless, duplex and chrome steels as well as titanium and zirconium where a high quality weld is required.

So before you buy a new sensor for your old monitor, or spend valuable time and money having a recalibration, why not take advantage of our exchange scheme, upgrade to the latest Weld Purge Monitor® and make sure you have a monitor that will last you 12-18 months before you need a new sensor.

The Weld Purge Monitor® was invented by HFT® in the 1970s and with over 40 years of innovation, design and manufacturing experience, the company now has a Family Range of PurgEye® Weld Purge Monitors® to measure oxygen levels from atmospheric content (20.94%) down to 1 ppm (accurate to 10 ppm) at which point no discolouration in welds of any kind should occur.

By striving for zero colour welds, companies can eliminate the post-weld cleaning costs of oxidised welds, which can be very high and in those cases make the cost of each weld significant.
