ORBmax
Residual oxygen meter
With Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG)-welding, oxygen as a protective and forming gas atmosphere is generally undesirable, as it is detrimental to the welded joint. This new ORBmax residual oxygen meter
sets a milestone for fast, exact detection of residual oxygen, and with it complete documentation
of these parameters. At the same time, the new measuring method results in greater efficiency and
higher quality.
In combination with the ORBIMAT welding power
source, the joining process can be monitored in
real-time and automatically switched off when
increased oxygen content occurs

The "Optical oxygen measurement via fluorescence extinction" method for welding
technology (patent pending) is far superior
to the conventional methods, using zirconium
sensors: It requires no warm-up time whatsoever; reliably, quickly and precisely detects
the oxygen share in the gas; unchecked alleged
increasing of the measured value due to the
formation of ozone is eliminated; the measurement is possible in all gas mixtures without
manual switch-over (even with forming gas
with a variable percentage of hydrogen).
The exact, fast detection of the oxygen content
reduces the otherwise long flooding time of
the forming gas. The operator can start the
safe welding process considerably earlier. As a
result, precious working time is saved and the
gas consumption reduced. In addition, ORBmax
requires no maintenance of any kind. Calibration
once a year in accordance with the standard ISO
9001 is sufficient.

For welding pipes in plant and equipment construction for the food processing, beverage, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals industries, medical
and bio-technology as well as fine chemicals,
comprehensive quality assurance is required and
a procedure qualification is specified for the welded
seams. For quality certification, not only the values
from the power source, but also the residual oxygen
values can be documented with the ORBmax. The
need for a more in-depth inspection, for example
with x-rays, is therefore eliminated. When used as a
stand-alone solution, ORBmax records a digital log
with a time stamp. In conjunction with the ORBIMAT
welding power source, the joining process can be
monitored in real-time and automatically switched
off when increased oxygen content occurs.
