Keep a distant 'Eye' on your Purge... up to 1 km away!
The World's 'first and only' remote Weld Purge Monitor®, measuring accurately down to 10 ppm. With an internal mechanical pump, all powered by the data cable from the display unit.
PurgEye® 1000 Remote Sensing Head 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 monitor up to 1 km away. With this capability, the operator can be certain that the weld purge reading is correct and that the joint will not be adversely affected by oxidation.
PurgEye® a 'Family' Series of Weld Purge Monitors® invented by HFT® in the 1970’s. Registered Trademarks in USA and Europe.

Measuring down to 10 ppm as far as 1 km away
When welding joints in long tube line or pipeline sections, it is not normally 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 heat generated in that area, the oxygen being drawn in from outside and other variable factors.
HFT® has developed an answer to this difficulty, namely a remote 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 monitor 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.

Some Advantages and Key Features
The Argweld® PurgEye® 1000 Remote Weld Purge Monitor® comes with a hand held display and a 10 m lead as standard.
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.
The unit 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.
HFT® use real science and technology to create proven and original products.
Technical Data and Specification
Measuring range down to 10 parts per million (ppm).
Large alpha-numeric display.
Operating voltage 115/230 V single phase 50/60 Hz.
Switchable facility for readings in ppm or percentage.
Power consumption 18 W.
Use only weld purge hose leak tight quick disconnect fittings suitable for connecting 6 mm OD polyurethane tubing. Do not try to use other diameter tubing because it will not seal properly and will end up causing leaks.
The PurgEye® 1000 Remote Weld Purge Monitor® is simple to use, real plug and play.
The sensor A is connected to the exhaust of the purging device which is located directly at the weld site.
The exhaust purge gas flows through tube A and is measured by the remote sensing unit B, which sends the results electronically back to the display unit C.
The sensing head B can be supplied with fixing brackets so that it can be fitted to an internal pipe clamp with purging seals or stand alone pipe weld purging system.
