Remote monitoring of Weld Purge up to 1 km away

When welding lengths of tube and pipework fabrications, as well as sections of pipelines of 20 metres length and more, one problem operators face is not receiving a fast and true weld purge reading from the purge zone.

Now, for the first time, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT makes it possible to have an immediate reading of the weld purge gas at the underside of the joint, from any distance up to 1,000 metres away with their PurgEye 1000 Weld Purge Monitor.

Luke Keane, Distributor Support for HFT said: “By using a remote sensing head, which can be fitted onto any Mechanical or Inflatable Tube and Pipe Weld Purging System from 1” (25 mm) diameter upwards, the oxygen level can be measured directly at the weld location and the information will be electronically transferred 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.”

"The PurgEye 1000 is one of our five Weld Purge Monitors to now feature PurgeNet, a networking device designed for communicating the current oxygen reading from the Monitor, to another piece of equipment, such as the visual warning accessory PurgeAlarm or a Dew Point Monitor with additional inter-pass temperature monitoring.”
