When welding titanium, it is essential that the oxygen level surrounding the weld is purged down to as low as 50 ppm. Measuring the oxygen level with a reliable oxygen analyzer is the most efficient way to know exactly when to commence welding.
Specifically designed for Purge Chamber welding, the PurgEye® Desk is leading the way in inert gas purging technology by reading oxygen levels from 1,000 ppm, right down to levels as low as 1ppm (highly accurate to 10 ppm), ensuring oxide free, zero colour welds are achieved time and time again.
Manufactured by Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT®, the PurgEye® Desk is equipped with HFT®’s revolutionary PurgeNet™, for the in-line connection of additional accessories that allows the Weld Purge Monitor® to control welding systems based upon oxygen level as well as to provide indications of high and low oxygen levels. These include a Visual Alarm and a Dew Point Sensor.
Ron Sewell, Chairman for HFT® said: “Our Flexible Welding Enclosures, together with our PurgEye® Desk are in use throughout industries such as the aerospace, racing car and titanium bicycle manufactures where titanium parts are required to be welded in an atmosphere where the oxygen level is required to be 50 ppm or less.”
The rugged, high frequency proof PurgEye® Desk has automatic fault finding diagnostics that can detect and report a number of possible faults. It also features an OLED (organic light emitting diode) display giving brighter, sharper readings at longer distances.
With a unique, fast response, long-life sensor having little maintenance requirement, the PurgEye® Desk Weld Purge Monitor® comes complete with an integral pump to deliver the exhausting purge gas to the measuring sensor on a consistent basis to allow precision control of the welding systems.
