There are considerable challenges when working on constructions sites, particularly when the conditions are in the open air. Taking into account global conditions, there might be extreme heat or extreme cold, sandstorms, dust storms, rain storms and winds.
All conditions have their own difficulties for expensive equipment and quality results.
Because of the extreme variations experienced by their customers, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques Limited, from the UK, have designed and developed a Weld Purge Monitor® that is resistant to the circumstances of extremes as mentioned above.
Weld Purge Monitors® are critical to achieving zero colour welds of high integrity to suit all conditions where stainless, duplex and chrome steels are being welded as well as titanium and nickel alloys.
These welds might be life dependent seals or they might need to be resistant to atmospheric conditions where they could degrade through corrosion which makes the margin for error very small.
The PurgEye® Site, Weld Purge Monitor® is a virtually non-destructible instrument for on-site conditions.
The high impact resistant case is also a secure, safe, waterproof and dustproof box.
This Model measures oxygen levels from 1,000 ppm, right down to 1 ppm (accurate to 10 ppm) and it has a new design long life sensor with a very fast response time and is equipped with PurgeNet™ for smart weld purging, automatic welding machine interface and traffic light visual warning accessory.”
The ultra sharp, large OLED display allows the data to be easily read and is mainly symbol based, rather than using text. The display does not need a backlight and can be viewed from greater angles than LED screens.
This monitor reads oxygen levels in parts per million (ppm) or percentage, depending on user preference. Flow detection ensures accurate reading of gas samples, along with a blocked filter icon and power on / off with a standby button for sensor warm up.
The small, low volume, almost indestructible case, can be carried anywhere and the PurgEye® Site used either with its internal battery, which lasts up to 10 hours or connected to mains electricity from 90 – 250 v, single phase A.C.
By using the PurgEye® Site, welders can ensure non-oxidised, zero colour welds are achieved regardless of conditions. Using a Weld Purge Monitor® also eliminates guesswork.
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).
Ron Sewell, Chairman for HFT® said: “All of Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT®’s Weld Purge Monitors® are manufactured in the UK. We do not sacrifice on quality and we guarantee to help customers achieve zero colour welds, time and time again. The Company has immense technical collateral gathered and published, that the Welding and Engineering Fraternity can access, rely on and use to solve many of the difficulties experienced while purging welds”
