Huntingdon Fusion Techniques (HFT) has now released its new ‘virtually non-destructible’ PurgEye® Site device as part of its Weld Purge Monitor® range.

The UK-based business first gave the industry a sneak peek at its new onsite oxygen (O2) analyser at Fabtech in November 2016. Now, the PurgEye Site has been released and is fully available throughout the US from COB Industries Inc.

The handheld, portable device measures O2 levels from 1,000 parts per minute (ppm) down to 1 ppm and is housed in a secure, safe, waterproof and dustproof box.

The robust instrument has been specifically designed for onsite conditions. It features an ultra-sharp OLED display and is equipped with HFT’s PurgeNetTM for smart welding, automatic welding machine interface and traffic light visual warning accessory.

The PurgEye Site’s flow detection ensures accurate gas sample reading, along with a blocked filter icon and a standby button for sensor warm up.

A press released explained, “By using the PurgEye Site, welders can ensure non-oxidised, zero colour welds are achieved regardless of conditions. Using a Weld Purge Monitor also eliminates guesswork.”
