Improving weld purging quality

07 October 2020

With the ever-increasing activities in such industries as the Nuclear, Oil and Gas and Engineering, there is a large volume of stainless steel, zirconium and titanium pipework that will need to be welded to a very high standard. 

An effective Weld Purge Monitor® present, in conjunction with weld purging equipment when making joints, will ensure engineers have an accurate oxygen reading before, during and after the welding cycle. 

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® manufactures a unique Weld Purge Monitor®, the PurgEye® 600, which reads from atmospheric level of oxygen (20.94%), down to one part per million (0.0001%).

The PurgEye® 600 has recently been updated to feature the revolutionary PurgeNet™, which controls the welding power sources such as orbital welders and any other automatic welding system to switch on an off according to set oxygen levels. 

This state of the art PurgEye® 600 incorporates all of the features and benefits of all the other Weld Purge Monitors® in the HFT® Family Range, but for the first time, this one instrument has a full range of measurement reading from atmospheric concentration (20.94%), down to 1 ppm, accurate to 10 ppm, meaning no other monitoring equipment is necessary with the PurgEye® 600.

USB data logging capability allows the operator the ease of data transfer without the need for a computer connection. These stable, accurate results can be logged for each weld, using the PurgeLog™ Software.
