The team at Huntingdon Fusion Techniques (HFT®), weld purging equipment manufacturer, has developed and progressed two of its inventions, offering improved weld purging capabilities.

Having been originally designed in the 1970s, the UK-based business has replaced its previous MKV monitor with a heavily updated version of its PurgEye® 100 Weld Purge Monitor®.

The revamped device has been designed featuring improved elements such as leak-tight push buttons, auto-calibration features and vacuum-sealed leak-tight probe assembly.

As such, the company now possesses a range of PurgEye Weld Purge Monitors to measure oxygen (O2) levels from atmospheric content down to one part-per-million (ppm).

Additionally, HFT has designed a unique, sealed package for its PurgEye 100 Weld Purge Monitor sensors, to raise their lifespans. Replacement sensors can now be kept in a preserved, inert environment until they are used, raising their longevity.

Luke Keane, Distributor Support for HFT, added, “The PurgeEye 100 is designed with a special sensor, which monitors the exact level of O2 during welding. The monitor has a low sensor warning, so unlike other O2 analysers, the user know that their monitor is reading correctly and exactly when the sensor needs changing.”
