Code Description
PS23 ROCKET - 1.1kW persistent smoke machine
PS25 ROCKET TURBO - 2.2kW persistent smoke machine

Operation:

  • Basic version & remote version (both on-board operation, off power, or remote)
  • Particle size 0.2 - 0.3 micron, mass median diameter - the smallest particle size of any smoke machine. ('Disco' systems' smoke particle size are usually 3 - 10 microns - a human hair is approx 100 microns). Fog produced by the heat exchanger in the Rocket has been subject to particle size analysis by the UK Atomic Energy Authority.

Available as 230v or 110v
(please specify when ordering)

Smoke Hang Time (at 20C)
1.5 hours +

Two control options available:

Basic - no remote (button on handle)
Remote - with button on handle AND remote control on 5m cable

You can produce lots of smoke 'off power' allowing you to carry the generator around, making smoke as required, without a trailing electrical lead. After being on mains for at least 15 minutes, the smoke machine can generate large amounts of smoke at full output for up to 2 minutes within a 20 minute window after being unplugged.

The remote control version can be used with the handle-mounted button when off-power, but not with the remote control (which needs power).

When connected to mains power, the Rocket can operate continuously at full 100% output
using the push button on the handle.

In service with numerous fire authorities world-wide, many military forces (including the USN for shipboard training), as well as analytical laboratories, clean rooms (stainless steel version available), spray booths, and HVAC contractors, the Rocket smoke machines have a reputation for simplicity of operation and reliability.

These units are ideal for when you require extremely dense concentrations of smoke, or when large volumes need to be filled with smoke. This is because the smoke produced by the Rocket is very persistent - a number of times more persistent than theatrical smoke machines. The ROCKET TURBO is a high power version and generates almost twice as much smoke as the standard model - it's one of the most powerful hand held smoke generators available today.

User comments:
"This is a cool machine. I used the machine in one of my outbuildings. Very impressive indeed. The room is 20' x 10' x 8'. You couldn't see 3' after a 30 second burst."

"I purchased your Rocket smoke machine for the testing of our spray booths and was amazed by the amount of smoke produced from such a compact unit. It is simple to use and with the smoke fluid in pre-filled cans, clean as well. These days it's not often you can say you're impressed with a product, but I am truly impressed! Thank you"

"Just filled up our workshop. Could hardly see the overhead lights. Our ‘professional’ Fireman is well impressed as am I."

"The Pea Soup Rocket smoke machine is really good, we have been testing all the A/C ducting and have so many leaks!"

DUCTING ADAPTORS & HOSE
  

Ducting adaptors attach to the front of the machine to allow secure connection of ducting hose to allow smoke to be positioned precisely, in hard to reach places or inside containers.

All our ducting hoses are now internally lined to be smooth thereby reducing frictional losses. When you duct smoke, you are restricting the smoke particles so deposition in the hose over time is inevitable. Using this machine and this type of hose, deposition is minimised.

  Overseas ordering of pre-pressurised smoke fluid aerosols

The box of 10 smoke fluid aerosols 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 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.

The ROCKET QD - Quick Dispersing Smoke Generator


Video of Rocket QD smoke machine in action, with ducting and fan for steam line effects

Rocket QD PDF Brochure

The ROCKET QD which looks and works in the same way as the ROCKET machines above, produces an even thicker, whiter smoke but which dissipates within a couple of minutes. This machine is mainly used for special effects for smoke that needs to disperse quickly and not smoke log a location (e.g. theatre, steam FX, TV). It's also ideal for photo shoots. By using it with a fan, a superb steam / CO2 blast effect can be created (increasing air movement increases rate of smoke dissipation). It is also used by some hospitals for their fire safety evacuation training where they need a thick smoke effect, but when the smoke must disperse after the test without ventilation available. Higher ambient temperatures also make the smoke disappear faster (at 30C the smoke is gone within 30 seconds).
Note: You cannot use persistent Rocket Fuel aerosols (above) in a Rocket QD machine because the machines operate at different temperatures.
