The World’s ‘first and only‘ remote Weld Purge Monitor® Gas Detection and Analysing Instrument, measures accurately down to 10 ppm, and has an internal mechanical pump powered by the data cable from the display unit.

When welding joints in long tube line or pipeline sections, it is not normally practical to measure the purge gas exhaust close to the weld. Measuring purge gas exiting in the joint gap is also unsatisfactory because of the heat generated in that area, the oxygen being drawn in from outside and other variable factors. PurgEye® 1000 Remote Sensing Head can be fitted onto the purging system, directly at the weld location and will measure oxygen level in the purge gas and transmit the information electronically to the monitor up to 1 km away. With this capability, the operator can be certain that the weld purge reading is correct and that the joint will not be adversely affected by oxidation. This way, the operator can be certain that the weld purge reading is correct and that the joint will not be adversely affected by oxidation.

The unit is small and round, and can easily be pulled through pipes.

The Argweld® PurgEye® 1000 Remote Weld Purge Monitor® Gas Detection and Analysing Instrument comes with a hand held display and a 10 m lead as standard. Optional 100 m reel of outdoor cable with locking connectors. Reels of extension cable can be connected together to make longer leads up to 1 km. Shorter or longer lengths can be supplied to order to suit application. Since the unit is powered from the data cable, only one cable is required. Measuring range down to 10 parts per million (ppm).

Large alpha-numeric display.

Operating voltage 115/230 V single phase 50/60 Hz.

Switchable facility for readings in ppm or percentage.

Power consumption 18 W.

Use only weld purge hose leak tight quick disconnect fittings suitable for connecting 6 mm OD polyurethane tubing. Do not try to use other diameter tubing because it will not seal properly and will end up causing leaks.

The PurgEye® 1000 Remote Weld Purge Monitor® Gas Detection and Analysing Instrument is simple to use, real plug and play.

The sensor A is connected to the exhaust of the purging device which is located directly at the weld site.

The exhaust purge gas flows through tube A and is measured by the remote sensing unit B, which sends the results electronically back to the display unit C.

The sensing head B can be supplied with fixing brackets so that it can be fitted to an internal pipe clamp with purging seals or stand alone pipe weld purging system.
