All this... in one Instrument!
It's here, brilliant new technology, the best 'Eye' on your purge, at a stunningly attractive price! The Argweld® Purgeye® 600 Weld Purge Monitor® is the first computerised, colour touch screen, 'State of the Art' Weld Purge Monitor® to accurately read oxygen levels in the welding environment. This one monitor alone reads all the way from atmospheric concentration (20.94%) right down to 10 ppm.
The Argweld® PurgEye® 600 Weld Purge Monitor® uses long life sensor technology, has a USB connection, data logging capability allowing the operator ease of data transfer without the need for a computer connection, includes an internal sampling pump and a switching capacity for external devices.
Our Weld Purge Monitors® have been specifically designed for excellent weld purging conditions creating the best oxide-free zero color welds. Oxygen monitors for welding purposes, including gas analysers (gas analyzers), oxygen instruments or oxygen indicators are not sufficient to provide good clean welds.
Weld Purge Monitor® invented by HFT® in the 1970’s. Registered Trademarks in USA and Europe

Return on Investment (ROI)
All Argweld® Pipe Weld Purging Systems and all PurgEye® Weld Purge Monitors® provide instant Return on Investment.
Computerised Colour Touch Screen
The unique PurgEye® 600 Weld Purge Monitor® has broken all technological boundaries and will read from 20.94% right down 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.
The Argweld® PurgEye® 600 has 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.
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
1.0 What is the intended application for the Argweld® PurgEye® 600 Weld Purge Monitor®?
For extreme 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 10 ppm, such as welds made in titanium, duplex, nickel alloys and high specification stainless steels.
2.0 Does the Argweld® PurgEye® 600 have a pump?
Yes, there is a pump that can be programmed to extract samples for reading by the sensor at given time intervals that can vary from continuous to less than one second.
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. It is very much lower in cost than other sensors.
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 PC where they can be analysed, checked and printed as required.
5.0 My Company needs a Calibration Certificate once a year for all instruments. How do I obtain one?
Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® has calibration centres worldwide, contact us or your nearest distributor for pricing.
Your instrument will be sent to us, we will recalibrate it and return it with a certificate within a few days.
6.0 Why do I need software?
The software package 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.
7.0 Is the Argweld® PurgEye® 600 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.
