This lightweight and attractively-priced instrument includes a unique, fast response, lifespan sensor with virtually no maintenance requirement. The PurgEye® 500Weld Purge Monitor® is ideal for ultra critical or ‘Golden’ welds, where oxygen levels need to be very precise and as low as 10 ppm. PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor® is particularly suitable for welds in ultra clean conditions, such as in LNG, food, semi-conductor, pharmaceutical sectors and any other process industries.

The instrument comes complete with an integral pump for applications where there is insufficient flow of exhaust gas, as well as PurgeLog™ software for computer interfacing, data acquisition, storage and printing of results and graphs for Quality Management Control purposes.

The PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor® is small, lightweight and portable.

The automatic fault-finding diagnostics can detect and report a number of possible faults.

The PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor® has a large alpha numeric display and has a weld start/stop facility.

High and low oxygen levels can be set by the operator on the front panel and the instrument reads from 1000 ppm down to 10 ppm. The PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor® incorporates an automatic internal alarm in the event of sudden oxygen level increase, or when the oxygen level reaches the lowest required point.

The integral electro-mechanical pump for extracting a gas sample works automatically where it is not possible to deliver a constant flow of exhaust purge gas over the sensor.

PurgeLog™ software package which is included allows for computer interfacing, data acquisition, storage and printing of results and graphs for Quality Management purposes.

The PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor® comes with a unique, fast response, lifetime sensor with little to no maintenance requirement. Special attention has been paid to electrical shielding to avoid interference.

This model is ideal for critical welds on material such as stainless, duplex and chrome steels, titanium, zirconium, nickel and cobalt alloys. It can be used for joints made in welding chambers and Flexible Welding Enclosures® as well as for orbital welding applications and for use with pipe weld purging systems.

The Argweld® PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor® has a large alpha-numeric display, is menu-driven using four operating buttons on the front panel and has a user interface for external alarm, high/low ppm settings, on/off welding power supply switching and is manufactured to ISO 9000 Quality Standards.

Display readings can be shown in ppm or percentage.

The Argweld® PurgEye® 500 Weld Purge Monitor® has an RS232 serial port for connection to a PC.

PurgeLog™ data logging software requires a PC running Microsoft® Windows and is compatible with the latest version. The recording and auditing capabilities of the HFT® Family of Weld Purge Monitors® are considered vital to the tube and pipe sector where traceability is now becoming a critical issue and Quality Management print outs are automatically available with PurgeLog™. The data connection cable is included.
