Key Features

The PurgEye® Site, now with PurgeNet™

Argweld PurgEye Site Weld Purge Monitor Oxygen Analyser Gas Analyzer

The PurgEye ® Site is our heavy-duty Weld Purge Monitor, ideal for site conditions.

The PurgEye ® Site main features include:

PurgeNet ™

The PurgEye ® Site 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.

An 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.

Large character OLED screen for easy reading

The large OLED screen allows the display to be easily read and is mainly symbol based, rather than text. The OLED display does not need a backlight and can be viewed from greater angles than LED screens.

Internal electro-mechanical pump with 15 l/m flow rate

The internal electro-mechanical sampling pump can be switched on and off as required. An alert icon flashes in the event of insufficient gas flow.
