PGE-PE0001 (Replaces MK-4 (PM0004))
The All New PurgEye™100 from Argweld® is the most advanced Hand-Held Weld Purge Monitor™ available. The new easy to use, easy to maintain PurgEye™ 100 raised the performance bar with the latest in advanced instrumentation technology, at an affordable price!
Increased accuracy with a simple, Single Button Auto Calibration function that allows you to calibrate at atmospheric level, and again at the lowest oxygen reading with the push of a button.
When TIG (tungsten inert gas welding), GTAW (gas tungsten arc welding) welding joints from stainless steel and other reactive metals, it is essential to know the oxygen content in the purged welding area. By using a PurgEye™100 Weld Purge Monitor™ you can take the guesswork out of welding difficult materials, ensuring you get a perfect weld every time!

• Automatic Sleep Mode When Not in Use
Advantages And Key Features:
• Auto Calibration Feature
Calibrate your own monitor at any time without having to return it to the factory. Also, each time you weld to ensure that your readings are the most accurate possible. The calibration facility even has the ability at the touch of a small button to calibrate both at atmospheric level of 20.94% and at 0.01% (100 ppm) level of oxygen.
• Low Sensor indicator
You will never again be with an unusable monitor! The “low sensor level signal”, giving plenty of time to obtain a new sensor which you can simply fit and calibrate yourself.
• Low Battery Indicator
Another ‘first’ in the design and manufacture of PurgEye™100 Weld Purge Monitors™ is the low battery indicator that appears in the corner of the screen at the appropriate time.
• Automatic Sleep Mode
When the Monitor registers more than 20% oxygen for periods longer than 1 hour, it will automatically switch off to conserve sensor and battery life.
• Extended Range
The PurgEye™ 100 Weld Purge Monitor™ indicates oxygen levels down to 100 parts per million (PPM) 0.01% and measures accurately down to 0.1%
• Enlarged Screen
The new enlarged screen uses 24 mm size digits for easy viewing at longer distances from the work station. These digits are approximately 41% larger than other models.
• Tripod Mount
Integrated tripod mount allows the PurgEye™ 100 Weld Purge Monitor™ to be firmly mounted. By mounting the instrument on a tripod, the welder/welding engineer can see the PurgEye™ 100 Weld Purge Monitor™ from any part of the work shop.
The PurgEye™ 100 Weld Purge Monitor™ is shipped in a robust storage case to protect the instrument and 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.

The PurgEye™ 100 Weld Purge Monitor™ can be used as a continuous measuring device throughout the welding process or as a sampling instrument for spot checks.
Now visible demonstrations and 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.
Before TIG welding begins, make sure you 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.)
