The PurgEye® 300 Nano Weld Purge Monitor® which was launched for the first time in 2012, has been updated to now read right down to 1 part per million (ppm) using a new style Zirconia sensor.
In spite of this stunning update, this attractively priced instrument remains at the same lowest cost anywhere for any other instruments measuring Oxygen levels down to 1 ppm.
Designed specifically for Personnel in welding and quality departments, who are responding to the latest quality control standards for lower oxygen levels, this new PurgEye® 300 Weld Purge Monitor® is suitable for weld purging of all Stainless, Duplex and Super Duplex steels as well as Titanium, Zirconium and Nickel alloys.
The PurgEye® 300 Nano makes an excellent stepping stone for those people who are entering the field of manufacturing with exotic alloys, obviating the need to purchase the more expensive instruments with all of the advanced features, that are needed by the established companies in the field.
A further advantage of this low priced PurgEye® 300 Nano Weld Purge Monitor® is that it can be purchased by those companies using hand held instruments with electrochemical sensors, that only read down to 100 parts per million at best.
In addition to measuring the oxygen levels when welding exotic alloys, the "Nano" has many applications for the weld purging of tube and pipe joints, either with manual or orbital welding techniques and with welding chambers, boxes and enclosures to ensure that the internal atmosphere is reduced to 10 ppm of Oxygen or less.
One further application for this small, lightweight instrument is for checking the quality of weld purge gases at source as well as checking for leaks in gas purge lines to obtain the ultra clean, high purity weld joints that are in coming more and more in demand.
Quality standards for pristine tube and pipe welds in many process industries are calling for lower and lower oxygen levels to ensure that oxidation and discolouration are reduced to the barest minimum to cut down cleaning and grinding costs and difficulties as well as to provide the correct quality welds for critical joints in industries such as Liquid Natural Gas, Semiconductor, Biofuels, Food and Drinks, Pharmaceuticals and so on.
This entry level, low cost instrument has no knobs nor buttons, no controls nor pump, no moving parts and no programming so it is a truly a plug and play, easy to use instrument for very accurate readings right down to 1 part per million.
The specially, unique new style long life sensor has no repair, refurbishment or calibration costs and eliminates the need for changing and calibrating sensors as used in wet cell technology.
The PurgEye® 300 Nano is the latest instrument to be launched as part of a complete family of five different Weld Purge Monitors® for a variety of applications.
