The PurgEye® 200 has many great features such as multi-function power on/off with standby button for sensor warm up with auto power-off after 15 minutes as automatic sleep mode, electro-mechanical internal pump with 1 L/min flow rate with an easy on/off facility.
The instrument comes complete with warning alarm levels between 1 and 999 ppm, alarm + and - buttons for displaying threshold settings, alarm mute where desired, flow detection for accurate reading of gas samples, leak tight quick connect/disconnect exhausting gas hose connections as well as a safety lanyard for wrist or neck.
The Argweld® PurgEye® 200 Weld Purge Monitor® has been specifically designed as a rechargeable low cost Weld Purge Monitor® for indicating low oxygen levels in inert gas for weld purging down to 10 ppm.
Argweld® PurgEye® 200 Weld Purge Monitors® are available for immediate delivery.
PurgEye® is a Family Series of Weld Purge Monitors®.
Rechargeable Battery Powered and Hand Held
The Argweld® PurgEye® 200 IP65 Rechargeable Weld Purge Monitor® is small, lightweight, hand held and rechargeable battery powered. Some of the great features are:
The PurgEye® 200 IP65 has been specifically designed to be rechargeable battery powered.
If the PurgEye® 200 IP65 is left with an over-range reading for more than 15 minutes, then it will automatically turn off to conserve battery power.
The warning alarm can be set to any level between 1 and 999 ppm and has both audible and visual indication when the alarm threshold is exceeded.
The flow warning exclamation icon will be displayed whenever the flow of sample gas drops below the minimum flow rate required for an accurate reading. Please note, this could be due to a blocked filter in need of replacement.
Large Character LCD Screen
The large LCD screen allows the reading to be easily read and helps conserve battery power compared to other display technologies.
Power On / Off
If the PurgEye® 200 IP65 is off, then pressing the standby button will switch it on and it will start the sensor warm-up procedure. The PurgEye® 200 IP65 can be turned off by holding the standby button for approximately 10 seconds or until it turns off.
Integral Sampling Pump
With the PurgEye® 200 switched on and the alarm inactive or muted, pressing the standby button will turn the integral sample pump on and off.
If the alarm is sounding, then pressing the standby button will mute the alarm, subsequent presses will control the sample pump.
Alarm + and Alarm - Buttons
Pressing either of the alarm buttons will display the current alarm threshold setting. When the alarm threshold is displayed, the first digit will flash, pressing either of the alarm buttons at this point will increase or decrease the value of the flashing digit.
Weighing only 400 gms (without batteries), the instrument is really lightweight, easy to use all day long.
The PurgEye® 200 IP65 Weld Purge Monitor® indicates oxygen levels from 1000 ppm down to 10 ppm (0.001%), so use an Argweld® PurgEye® Weld Purge Monitor® everytime for guaranteed accuracy of oxygen indication to allow a weld start with minimal risk of oxidation.
Technical Data and Specification
The ArgWeld® PurgEye® 200 IP65 Rechargeable Weld Purge Monitor® can be used with any tube or pipe weld purging system, any weld purging chamber or weld purging enclosure.
The PurgEye® 200 IP65 Rechargeable Weld Purge Monitor® can be used as a continuously reading instrument with free flow of the purge exhaust gas across the sensor, or as a sampling instrument with the integral electro-mechanical vacuum pump.
The Argweld® PurgEye® 200 IP65 Rechargeable Weld Purge Monitor® has been specifically designed to be rechargeable battery power operated. It contains 4 standard rechargeable AA batteries and is supplied with a rechargeable battery unit and charger.
The large alpha-numeric display is easy to read and can be easily switched to display readings in ppm or percentage.
The Argweld® PurgEye® 200 IP65 Rechargeable Weld Purge Monitor® has a working temperature between 0 and 70°C (32 and 158°F) and a two minute warm up time.
Note: Use only 6mm OD polyurethane weld purge tubing. The leak tight quick fit couplings are specifically integrated so that the user will not have leaks of air into the critical purge zone. Do not use other tubing because it will not fit properly and it will cause leaks.

Frequently Asked Questions
1.0 What is the intended application of the Argweld® PurgEye® 200 IP65 Weld Purge Monitor®?
For extreme weld quality control in aerospace, semiconductor, pharmaceutical, vacuum, biotech, food and drinks industries where pristine oxide free welds have to be achieved.
Also, applications demanding extremely accurate readings from atmosphere right down to 10 parts per million (ppm), such as welds made in titanium, duplex, nickel alloys and high specification stainless steels.
2.0 Does the Argweld® PurgEye® 200 IP65 have a pump?
Yes, there is a an integral electro-mechanical pump that can be programmed to extract samples for reading by the sensor at given time intervals that can vary from continuous to less than one second.
3.0 What sort of sensor is used in the Argweld® PurgEye® 200 IP65 Weld Purge Monitor®?
The Argweld® PurgEye® 200 Weld Purge Monitor® uses a solid state long life sensor of a unique design. It is very much lower in cost than other sensors and has an indefinite lifespan.
4.0 My Company needs a calibration certificate once a year for all instruments. How do I obtain one?
At present we have calibration facilities in the USA, Singapore and Norway. As time goes by we are planning to set up others. In addition, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® has a recalibration facility, contact us or your nearest distributor for pricing. Your instrument will be sent to us, we will recalibrate it and return it with a certificate within a few days.
5.0 Is the Argweld® PurgEye® 200 IP65 Weld Purge Monitor® sensitive to electrical disturbances?
Each instrument has shielding to prevent most forms of interference. Quality control test and inspection criteria are designed to account for as many variables as possible. It is extremely rare that electrical interference will affect the monitor.
6.0 I need to detect oxygen level in pipes preheated to 300°C (572°F). Can I use the Argweld® PurgEye® 200 IP65 under these conditions?
The Argweld® PurgEye® Weld Purge Monitors® should not be exposed to gas at a temperature above 50°C (122°F). Please contact us for information about exhaust purge gas cooling methods.
