With an output that puts pyrotechnic smoke bombs
to shame, complete controllability and low running costs,
this gas powered
gun is the ideal solution for external
for over ten years, this
gun has become the industry standard exterior gas powered
gun. Small, lightweight and easy to operate, using disposable
aerosols of gas and
fluid and incorporating a piezo electric ignition. Its variable
output can be regulated from a trickle of light mist to a
dense fog. Supplied in a metal carrying case.
This smoke gun is a unique, off power
generator ideal for creating large volumes of
for applications such as fire training, public order training,
photography and film making - indeed any application where
complete portability is a requirement.
Using conventional Taymar type gas cartridges
as the heating source (available worldwide) and one of our
special smoke fluid canisters, the smoke gun is incredibly
straight forward to use. Simply screw in the canisters, pre-heat
the stainless steel coil for a few seconds, and turn on the
. It's that easy!
Principle of Operation
oil stored in disposable, ozone friendly
canisters, is forced under pressure from an inert propellant
into a heat exchanger, where it is vaporised using heat applied
by a high efficiency burner. The burner draws gas from standard
propane/butane cartridges such as the Taymar 3500. The vapour
produced condenses on reaching normal atmosphere and a dense,

Our smoke fluid aerosols are made from one-piece aluminium so
they will not rust or leak.

cannot send the propane gas aerosols (above) anywhere outside
mainland UK - you must source them in your own
country if you are outside the UK. The thread type of these
propane cylinders is the same around the world, EXCEPT
in America/Canada where the thread type is different. They are
readily available from hardware stores and camping supply shops.
ordering of pressurised smoke fluid aerosols
The box of 10 smoke fluid aerosols above are pre-pressurised,
which means they cost more to ship overseas than a normal container
of fluid as they are classed as 'hazardous'. To lower the cost
of shipping and further reduce running costs of your smoke machine,
we can supply a refillable canister option. Instead of using
the pre-pressurised aerosols, re-fillable aerosol cans can simply
be pressurised to 80PSI by a hand pump, airline (e.g. in a garage
forecourt) or inert gas supply. You simply buy our refillable
can and a 5 litre container of our smoke fluid which will fill
the can around 14 times. It is possible to re-fill the same
can 25+ times. You can, of course, purchase any number of 5
litre containers at the time of your order.
aerosol with siphon tube (supplied singly) Fill with fluid (below) and pressurise with
a hand pump, airline (e.g. in a garage forecourt) or inert gas
supply. Can be refilled 25+ times. Overseas shipping costs
are greatly reduced by ordering refillable aerosol(s) and containers
of smoke fluid instead of pre-pressurised aerosols.

use with refillable aerosol (above)
Will fill the refillable aerosol approx. 14 times.
High pressure shock pump - with
gauge, used to pressurise the refillable aerosol (above) to
80psi (5.5 bar). Small and portable, requires approx. 200 activations
to pressurise canister. Photo below shows pump next to refillable aerosol.
pressure stirrup pump - with gauge, used to pressurise
the refillable aerosol (above) to 80psi (5.5 bar). Physically
larger in size than the shock pump above, but only requires
around 5 actions to pressurise the canister.
