WELD PURGE MONITOR™
|PurgEye™100 the newest, most advanced Weld Purge Monitor™ with new features and capabilities that place this monitor way ahead in the field of weld purge monitoring. The Argweld® product line is the only one to offer a complete “family” of Weld Purge Monitors™ for all applications and to suit every budget. With the addition of the exciting new PurgEye™ 100, the industry’s most popular line of purge monitors has raised the bar even higher with the latest in instrumentation and advances in technology.
The innovative Push Button Auto Calibration on the front of the PurgEye™100 allows the user to calibrate at atmospheric level and again at the lowest oxygen reading with just the push of a button and provides increased accuracy.
With tungsten inert gas welding (gas tungsten arc welding) of important joints in stainless steels and other reactive metals, it is essential to know that the oxygen content in the welding volume has been reduced to a satisfactorily low level before commencing the weld. By using a proper Weld Purge Monitor™ the guesswork is eliminated and the welders can do their job with increased confidence and assurance of a good purge. Use the right tool for the job!

Technical Data and Specification
The PurgEye™ 100 Weld Purge Monitor™ is shipped in an attractive, robust carry, presentation and storage case to maintain the instrument in good condition and to keep it together with all accessories.
The PurgEye™ 100 Weld Purge Monitor™ can be used with any pipe welding system, any weld purging chamber or weld purging enclosure.
The sensor is easy to replace and self calibrate using the advanced calibration features of the PurgeEye™100 and the specially written algorithm that provides extreme accuracy at 0.1% where it is especially important for weld purging.
The PurgEye™ 100 Weld Purge Monitor can be used as a continuously reading instrument with free flow of the purge exhaust gas across the sensor, or as a sampling instrument with the hand vacuum pump and stainless steel probe assembly extracting samples from the purged volume, as and when desired.

|With inert gas welding, before commencing, it is essential to know that the oxygen content in the welding volume has been reduced to a satisfactory level. The Purge Monitor is specifically designed to measure oxygen content down to 0.01% with a high degree of accuracy. An oxygen content of 1.0% is normally considered suitable to ensure that there is no oxidation of the weld (there may be some exceptions to this figure, such as with titanium, zirconium and other exotic metals.)
The PurgEye™ 100 Weld Purge Monitor™ can be used as a continuous measuring device throughout the process or as a sampling instrument for spot checks. Visible demonstrations and routine inspections for quality control are made simple. The monitor can be used with any pipe purging system or argon welding enclosure. It is very compact and completely portable.
Small, portable and very simple to use
Once the desired oxygen level is achieved, welding can begin.
