Huntingdon Fusion Techniques (HFT) has launched an updated PurgEye® 300 Plus, now with PurgeNet™.
The lightweight portable gas analyser indicates oxygen (O2) levels down to one ppm (accurate to 10 ppm) on a large alpha-numeric OLED display, which the company says is perfect for achieving oxide-free, zero colour welds time and time again.
“The unique highly advanced communicating system PurgeNet allows connection of accessories such as an automatic welding machine interface, a long distance visual alarm system and a dew point monitor,” explains Ron Sewell, Chairman of HFT, “Each of these allows control of a welding system by the weld purge monitor to avoid making faulty welds because of excessive O2 present.”
The PurgEye 300 Plus is menu driven by four push buttons on the front and has an internal audible alarm so acceptable and unacceptable O2 levels can be set. A long-life O2 sensor, inside the monitor, means there is very little maintenance requirement.
The PurgEye 300 Plus is equipped with PurgeLog™ for Quality Control purposes, where data can be stored or printed and transferred to a PC.
