The new IP65-approved PurgEye® 100 now comes in a metal housing instead of plastic. It features leak-tight push buttons, auto calibration features, vacuum-sealed leak-tight probe assembly, and a wrist/neck strap.
UK-based Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® has introduced an upgrade in the PurgEye® 100 range and added new features that place this monitor at the forefront of Weld Purge Monitoring.
Fundamentally, weld purging means the absence of oxygen and it is significant for welders to be aware of when it is safe to begin welding to enable protection from oxidation. This state-of-the-art Weld Purge Monitor® accurately reads down to 100 ppm, suitable for welding stainless steel.
About the upgradation in the product, Mr. Luke Keane, Technical Sales Manager, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT®, informs, “We are very excited to be launching our new PurgEye® 100. Guesswork is eliminated with the monitor and welders can know exactly what the oxygen content is before, during and after welding.”
PurgEye® 100, which can be hand-held, is now equipped with a metal housing which used to be a plastic one. The readings on the device can be from atmospheric oxygen level (20.94 percent) right down to 100 ppm (0.01 percent) of oxygen.
It is IP65-approved and has leak-tight push buttons, auto calibration features, a vacuum-sealed leak-tight probe assembly, and a wrist/neck strap. Featuring a clear LCD screen display, the PurgEye® 100 device also shows the low battery icon as well as the low sensor icon when it is so. Moreover, if the monitor is not in operation, an automatic sleep mode gets turned on to preserve the battery.
