On-Site Weld Purge Monitor® with PurgeNet™
Press release date: March 28, 2017
Welders often face difficulties when working under the conditions experienced on-site. When welding critical joints on-site the challenges might come from exposure to extremes of heat and cold, harmful sand and dust and even hazardous fumes. Therefore using an expensive Weld Purge Monitor® in such conditions may not always be ideal.
To overcome these challenges, a virtually non-destructible Weld Purge Monitor® has been designed for on-site conditions, available in the USA from COB Industries. Designated the PurgEye® Site, this new instrument is a guarded oxygen monitor in a secure, safe, waterproof and dustproof box, IP68 with the lid open and IP65 rated with the lid closed.
COB Industries said: “The PurgEye® Site measures oxygen levels from 1,000 ppm, right down to 1 ppm (accurate to 10 ppm). It is portable, robust and has been specifically designed for site conditions.”
“With a new design long life sensor and a very fast response time, the PurgEye® Site has an ultra sharp OLED display and is equipped with PurgeNet™ for smart weld purging, automatic welding machine interface and traffic light visual warning accessory.”
The large OLED display allows the data to be easily read and is mainly symbol based, rather than text. The display does not need a backlight and can be viewed from greater angles than LED screens.
The on-site oxygen analyser reads oxygen levels in parts per million (ppm) or percentage, depending on user preference. Flow detection ensures accurate reading of gas samples, along with a blocked filter icon and power on / off with a standby button for sensor warm up.
The small, low volume, almost indestructible case, can be carried anywhere and the PurgEye® Site used either with its internal battery, which lasts up to 10 hours or connected to mains electricity from 90 – 250 v, single phase A.C.
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.
