Huntingdon Fusion Techniques (HFT®) has launched a low cost, hand-held, battery operated PurgEye® 100 which the company says is “perfect for welding stainless steel”.

The PurgEye 100 is IP65 rated and comes with leak-tight push buttons, auto calibration features, vacuum-sealed leak-tight probe assembly, wrist/neck strap and tripod mount and reads accurately from atmospheric oxygen level (20.94%), right down to 100 ppm (0.01%).

The extra long life sensor provides approximately 18 months life before it requires changing. A low sensor indicator will appear on the screen, warning that a new sensor is required. Once that icon appears, it provides the user with adequate time to obtain a new sensor, which can be fitted like changing a battery and the monitor can be re-calibrated easily by the user.

With a clear, easy to read LCD screen, the PurgEye® 100 boasts a 24 mm high display with features such as a low battery icon as well as the low sensor icon. When the monitor is not in use, an automatic sleep mode activates to conserve battery life.
