Accurate Readings down to 10 ppm
The unique PurgEye® 600 Weld Purge Monitor® has broken all technological boundaries and will read from atmospheric (20.94%) right down to 1 ppm (accurate to 10 ppm).
With the ever more stringent quality control standards being applied to the welding of titanium, nickel alloys, stainless and duplex steels in aerospace, offshore, pharmaceutical, food, beverage, semi conductor, bio-technical fields etc, it has been necessary to develop an attractively priced Weld Purge Monitor® that will read from atmospheric oxygen levels down to 10 ppm.
This colour touch screen 'State of the Art' instrument is the first to be available in the market place to accurately read oxygen levels in the weld environment from atmosphere (20.94%) down to 10 ppm in a single instrument.
Now complete with PurgeNet™, allowing control of automatic welding equipment with other accessories including visual on/off light for remote viewing, a dew point meter and audible alarm.
The Argweld® PurgEye® 600 has PurgeLog™, data logging capability that allows the operator to download data via a USB port onto a memory stick obviating the need of a computer connection.
The colour touch screen with graphics allows the user to pre-set upper and lower ppm levels of their choice to trigger alarms.
Not only have we been able to achieve these terrific World beating features, but in addition, we have included an internal sampling pump, switching capacity for external devices and a long life sensor.
All at a stunningly attractive price for this single wide range instrument.

This unique Argweld® PurgEye® 600 Weld Purge Monitor® has broken all technological boundaries and will read from 20.94% oxygen down to 1 ppm.
At last, a computerised colour touch screen state of the art instrument to accurately read oxygen levels in the welding environment from atmosphere (20.94%) down to 10 ppm.
With PurgeLog™ Data Logging Software
Operating Voltage 110 /230 V single phase 50 / 60 Hz, the unit uses an external 12 volt PSU with an input voltage range of 90 to 260 V AC.
PurgeNet™ to provide the control of automatic welding systems via one of its accessories switching on and off according to oxygen levels.
USB port for computer data collection.
PurgeLog™ Data Logging Software. PurgeLog™ Data Logging Software requires a PC running Microsoft® Windows for recording and auditing where traceability is critical.
User interface for external alarm, high/low ppm settings, on/off welder switching etc.
Facility for readings in percentage and ppm.
Instrument dimensions: 150 x 90 x 170 mm.
Power consumption 18 W.
Dew Point Sensor
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® 200
- PurgEye® Desk
- PurgEye® 600
- PurgEye® 1000
- PurgEye® Site
Frequently Asked Questions
1.0 What is the intended application for the Argweld® PurgEye® 600 Weld Purge Monitor®?
For 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 1 part per million (ppm), such as welds made in titanium, zirconium, duplex, nickel alloys and high specification stainless steels.
2.0 Does the Argweld® PurgEye® 600 have a pump?
3.0 What sort of sensor is used in the Argweld® PurgEye® 600 Weld Purge Monitor®?
The PurgEye® 600 Weld Purge Monitor® uses a solid state long life sensor of a unique design.
4.0 Can I obtain Quality Control Documentation for each weld with the Argweld® PurgEye® 600 Weld Purge Monitor®?
Yes, this instrument has a data logging capability and the results can be downloaded through the USB port onto a memory stick and transferred to a computer where they can be analysed, checked and printed as required.
5.0 What is the length of the connected tube from the PurgEye® 600 Touch Screen Weld Purge Monitor®?
The PurgEye® 600 Touch Screen Weld Purge Monitor® comes with a 1 meter clear tube fitted with a filter.
6.0 My Company needs a Calibration Certificate once a year for all instruments. How do I obtain one?
We have a number of calibration facilities around the world. Please contact us or your local HFT Distributor to find details of the one nearest you.
7.0 Why do I need software?
The software package, PurgeLog™, is included for those companies who may need to produce quality control documentation to show that the oxygen levels remained below required values for the duration of the weld.
The software allows the user to plot oxygen reading against time, save the information to hard drive and print the data as required.
8.0 Is the PurgEye® 600 Touch Screen 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.
9.0 I need to detect oxygen level in pipes pre-heated to 300ºC (572ºF). Can I use the PurgEye® 600 Touch Screen under these conditions?
The PurgEye® 600 Touch Screen Weld Purge Monitors® should not be exposed to gas at a temperature above 50ºC (122ºF)*.
10.0 Can Weld Purge Monitors® only be used when purging with argon?
The PurgEye® Weld Purge Monitors® measure the oxygen level within any gas, not only inert gases. They can be used to monitor the oxygen level when using inert gases such as argon and helium and also non-inert gases including nitrogen and nitrogen/ hydrogen mixes
11.0 What is PurgeNet™?
The PurgeNet™ facility allows a series of accessories to be added to the Weld Purge Monitor®. One accessory allows control of 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 external, distance light system, which gives a visual warning during welding in case of rising or falling oxygen levels. Other accessories include a Dew Point Monitor and an audible alarm.
