Monitor your Weld Purge at a low cost

The PurgEye® 100 is IP65 rated and comes with innovative leak-tight push buttons, auto calibration features, vacuum-sealed leak-tight probe assembly, wrist/neck strap and tripod mount
Weld Purge Monitors® are essential instruments to help obtain non-oxidised, zero colour welds. By measuring the oxygen content before, during and after welding, high quality welds are achieved when welding metals such as stainless, chrome and duplex steels as well as titanium and nickel alloys.
Advancing in the science of manufacturing beyond other designs, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT®'s market leading PurgEye® 100 can help to eliminate the significant post weld cleaning costs that occur when the oxygen level has not been monitored correctly during welding.
Ron Sewell, Chairman for HFT® said: "We recently had a European Gas Turbine Manufacturer who was spending a lot of time and money cleaning oxidised stainless steel welds. They were using an unsuitable means to guess the reduction of oxygen."
"They contacted one of our Exclusive Distributors, who were able to visit them onsite and demonstrate the PurgEye® 100. This low cost monitor accurately measures from atmospheric level (20.94%) down to 100 parts per million (ppm), meaning the welder knows exactly when to commence welding in order to achieve a perfect weld every time."
The PurgEye® 100 is IP65 rated and comes with innovative leak-tight push buttons, auto calibration features, vacuum-sealed leak-tight probe assembly, wrist/neck strap and tripod mount.
The extra long life sensor provides approximately 18 months life before it requires changing. A low sensor indicator will appear on the screen, warning that a new sensor is required. Once that icon appears, it provides the user with adequate time to obtain a new sensor, which can be fitted like changing a battery and the monitor can be re-calibrated easily by the user.
The PurgEye® 100 has a clear, easy to read LCD screen, with a 24 mm high display. The display also shows a low battery icon. When the monitor is not in use, an automatic sleep mode activates to conserve battery life.
The Weld Purge Monitor® was invented by HFT® in the 1970's and with over 40 years of innovation, design and manufacturing experience, the company now has a Family of PurgEye® Weld Purge Monitors® to measure oxygen levels from atmospheric content (20.94%) down to 1 ppm (accurate to 10 ppm).
