Accurately measuring down to 10 ppm

NEW Rechargeable Battery Powered Weld Purge Monitor from start to ready

Now with an OLED (organic light emitting diode) display, the PurgEye ® 200 Weld Purge Monitor ® gives sharper, brighter and clearer readings for viewing at longer distances than before. The OLED display is mainly symbol based, which means the menus are easily understandable regardless of which languages the user speaks.

The handy PurgEye ® 200 is battery or mains power driven, with charging carried out from a dock (optional). Battery life is up to 10 hours.  

This latest model has a much faster response, long life sensor.

It also has loud, pre-settable audio alarms for rising or falling oxygen levels between 1 and 999 ppm as well as alarm + and – buttons for displaying threshold oxygen settings,

In addition, there is an alarm mute as well as flow detection for accurate reading of gas samples.

The PurgEye ® 200 also comes complete with leak tight connect / disconnect gas hose connections.

For the very first time, the PurgEye ® 200 now features PurgeNet ™, allowing the addition of standard accessories that will allow the Weld Purge Monitor ® to be linked with automatic welding machines such as orbital welders, a traffic light accessory to give visual indication of the Purge process and final a dew point meter.

As with all other HFT products, the Argweld ® PurgEye ® 200 Weld Purge Monitors ® are always in stock and available for immediate delivery Worldwide.

IP65 Rated, Rechargeable and Hand Held

Argweld PurgEye 200 Rechargeable Hand Held protective storage case

The Argweld ® PurgEye ® 200 is IP65 rated against dust and moisture. It is highly accurate to 10 ppm. The Monitor is lightweight, hand held and rechargeable.

Some of the great features include:

PurgeNet ™

The PurgEye ® 200 now comes complete with PurgeNet™, which controls all Automatic Welding Systems as well as Orbital Welders, causing them to switch on and off for example when oxygen level rises too high or falls to low.

For control of Automatic Welding Equipment by a Weld Purge Monitor®, the relevant cable accessory will be used. At that point, the Monitor will switch off your automatic welding system if by any chance the oxygen level should rise above your pre-set limit, to prevent the risk of weld oxidation. The Monitor will switch the welding system back on, once the excess oxygen has been purged away.

PurgeAlarm ™

The IP66 Rated (Environmental Protected) PurgeAlarm™ displays a red indicator, only if the PurgEye® has warmed up, the alarm enabled and is reading a greater value than the alarm threshold set by the user.

Argweld PurgEye Weld Purge Monitor PurgeAlarm Mark V MKV Oxygen Monitor Welding Gas Analyser AnalyzersAn optional green indicator can be fitted above the standard red indicator and will illuminate only if the alarm is active and reading a value lower than the alarm threshold set but the user. A sounder is available as an option to provide an audible alarm instead of the red light.

PurgeNet™ also works with PurgeLog™ to easily transfer weld purge data for Quality Control purposes. 

Rechargeable Battery and Mains Powered

The PurgEye ® 200 can be run by a rechargeable, long life battery lasting up to 10 hours or by 110/240 v mains power. The PurgEye ® 200 is now available with an optional charging dock  

OLED Display

The PurgEye ® 200 now has an OLED (organic light emitting diode) display, for brighter, shaper, clearer readings.

Auto Power-Off 

If the PurgEye ® 200 is left with an over-range reading for more than 15 minutes, it will automatically turn off to conserve batter power.

Warning Alarms

The warning alarm can be set to any level between 1 and 999 ppm. The Monitor features both audible and visual indication when the alarm threshold is exceeded.

Flow Detection

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. An alert icon indicates where there is insufficient flow of purge gas, which could be caused by a blocked filter. 

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. Holding the standby button for approximately 10 seconds or until it turns off can turn off the Monitor.

Integral Sampling Pump

With the PurgEye ® 200 switched on and the alarm inactive or muted, pressing the standby button will turn the integral electro-mechanical sample pump on and off.

Alarm Buttons

Settable alarm buttons on the PurgEye ® 200 ensure the desired oxygen ppm level is in place.

Guaranteed Accuracy

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.

Dew Point SensorDew Point Sensor for accurately measuring the dew point.

During purging welders need to measure the oxygen content but also need to measure the ‘dew point’.

The dewpoint is the temperature where condensation begins and water will condense on the material being welded. This can affect the weld properties significantly.

We have recently added a Dew Point Sensor to our range that can be used in conjunction with our range of 10 ppm Weld Purge Monitors®, so rather than purchasing a separate, expensive Dew Point Meter, HFT®’s Dew Point Sensor that can be connected to the Weld Purge Monitor® via the PurgeNet™ lead.

The dew point sensor is designed to fit any of our Weld Purge Monitors® that read down to 1ppm:

Measuring down to 10 ppm as far as 1 km away

PurgEye 1000 Remote Weld Purge Monitor Oxygen Analyser Gas Analyzer

When welding joints in long tube line or pipeline sections, it may not be practical to measure the purge gas exhaust close to the weld.

Measuring purge gas exiting in the joint gap is also unsatisfactory because of the the oxygen being drawn in from outside and other variable factors.

HFT® has developed an answer to this difficulty, namely a sensing head that can be fitted onto the purging system, directly at the weld location and will measure oxygen level in the purge gas and transmit the information electronically to the remote monitor and operator that may be up to 1 km away.

In this way, the operator can be certain that the weld purge reading is correct and that the joint will not be adversely affected by oxidation.

Portable ‘handy’ Purge Monitor, reading from 1000 ppm down to 1 ppm (accurate to 10 ppm).

The PurgEye® 1000 Remote, now with PurgeNet™ is equipped with a stainless steel sensing head, which connects onto any Inflatable or mechanical Tube, Pipe and Pipeline Weld Purging System, producing accurate readings up to 1 km away from the weld.

The sensing head and the integral electro-mechanical pump are powered by the data cable, so only one cable is required. The sensor head is small enough to fit inside pipes from 1” (25 mm) diameter, upwards and is easily manoeuvred through pipes.

Weld Purge Monitoring Now with PurgeNet™

Argweld PurgEye 1000 Remote Weld Purge Monitor Oxygen Analyzer Welding Gas Analyser

The PurgEye® 1000 has been developed with a sensing head that can be fitted onto the Tube, Pipe and Pipeline Weld Purging System, directly at the weld location and moved from joint to joint. The new, fast response, zirconia oxygen sensor will measure oxygen level in the purge gas and transmit the information electronically to the monitor, up to 1 km away.

PurgeNet ™

The PurgEye ® 1000 now comes complete with PurgeNet™, which can control Automatic Welding Systems as well as Orbital Welders, causing them to switch on and off for example when oxygen level rises too high or falls too low.

PurgeAlarm ™

The IP66 Rated (Environmental Protected) PurgeAlarm™ displays a red indicator, if the monitor reading has a greater value than the alarm threshold set by the user.

An optional green indicator can be fitted above the standard red indicator and will illuminate if the reading has a value lower than the alarm threshold set but the user. A sounder is available as an option to provide an audible alarm instead of the red light.

PurgeNet™ also works with PurgeLog™ to easily transfer weld purge data for Quality Control purposes.

The Argweld® PurgEye® 1000 Remote Weld Purge Monitor® comes with a hand held display, a sensor head hermetically sealed inside a small round stainless steel tube and a 10 m lead as standard.

Optional Docking Station for charging the battery if required. The unit will run from 100 – 250 volts, 50 hz supply.

Other features of the PurgEye® 1000:

  • Optional 100 m reel of outdoor cable with locking connectors.
  • Reels of extension cable can be connected together to make longer leads up to 1 km.
  • Shorter or longer lengths can be supplied to order to suit application.
  • PurgEye® 1000 display, battery or mains powered.
    Suitable for fitting to mechanical or inflatable purging systems for 1” diameter pipe and larger.
  • The head will be powered from the data cable, so only one cable is required.
  • Because the unit is small and round, it is easy to pull through pipes.

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® are bringing yet another innovation to the market place with this new PurgEye® 1000 Remote Weld Purge Monitor®. Weld Purge Monitors® have been developed and manufactured by HFT® specifically for welding of high quality materials as ordinary oxygen monitors cannot achieve the accuracy required for welding purposes.

Dew Point Sensordew Point Sensor for accurately measuring the dew point.

During purging welders need to measure the oxygen content but also need to measure the ‘dew point’.

The dewpoint is the temperature where condensation begins and water will condense on the material being welded. This can affect the weld properties significantly.

We have recently added a Dew Point Sensor to our range that can be used in conjunction with our range of 10 ppm Weld Purge Monitors®, so rather than purchasing a separate, expensive Dew Point Meter, HFT®’s Dew Point Sensor that can be connected to the Weld Purge Monitor® via the PurgeNet™ lead.

The dew point sensor is designed to fit any of our Weld Purge Monitors® that read down to 1ppm:

  • PurgEye® 300 Nano, the worlds first and only super low cost, entry level, mains power driven Weld Purge Monitor® measuring accurately down to 10 ppm.
  • PurgEye® 500 Desk with PurgeNet™ uses an internal electro-mechanical pump to draw the gas across the sensor. It also has the switching capabilities and the PurgeLog™ Software.. This equally attractively priced instrument includes a unique, fast response, lifespan sensor with virtually no maintenance required. Reads accurately down to 10 ppm
  • PurgEye® 600 a computerised, touch screen model measuring very accurately from atmospheric level of oxygen, down to 10 ppm, with high and low oxygen level switching capabilities, data capture via USB using PurgeLog™ software for recording purging results for evaluation and provision of a quality control document. Readings are indicated either as parts per million or in percentage.
  • PurgEye® 1000 monitor with PurgeNet™ has been developed for those instances where the measuring point is more than 20 metres away from the monitor. The slow time for the gas to travel and reach the sensor and the contamination of actual reading that can take place inside the gas tube, leads to serious delays and erratic readings. To improve this, the sensor is placed in a small module attached to a weld purge system and the reading transmitted instantaneously to a hand held display via a data cable. Reads accurately down to 10 ppm.
  • PurgEye® 1500 Site with PurgeNet™, designed and manufactured in a robust, virtually non-destructible case, perfect for dusty, hazardous, on-site conditions, measuring oxygen levels from 1,000 ppm down to 10 ppm. IP68 rated with the lid closed.

What is PurgeNet™? 

PurgeNet™ controls the welding power sources such as orbital welders and any other automatic welding systems to switch on and off according to oxygen levels. PurgeNet™ can be used with PurgeLog™ software to transfer weld purge data for quality control of welds. PurgeNet™ connects to other smart accessories for weld purging, including the Traffic Light System, which gives a visual warning during welding in case of rising of falling oxygen levels. PurgeNet™ is in fact a network that allows connection with a range of other accessories to be announced in the future.

Weld Purge Monitor® was invented by HFT® in the 1970’s. Registered Trademarks in USA and Europe. Note that the Argweld® Mark V (MKV) does not feature as this meter is now very much out of date and this old technology has been replaced by the latest 'most popular' state of the art instrument, the PurgEye® 100 IP65 Weld Purge Monitor®.
