Temperature Resistance of Smoke
The artificial smoke produced by thermal smoke generators
such as ours will eventually break down as the ambient temperature
Water based (glycol) smokes such as those used by
the vast majority of theatrical / nightclub type smoke machines
generally begin to layer at temperatures as low as 35°C. Industrial
type glycerine based systems (such as our Hand Portable and 2.2kW
Smoke Generators) this layering begins at around 60°C.
However, if smoke testing is required at higher temperatures,
the Oil Based Smoke Machines from Pea Soup
offer a practical and very cost effective solution. Producing a
smoke that is resistant to temperatures up to 180°C before layering
commences, these machines are rapidly proving to be a preferred
choice for all applications, such as Hot Fire Training where the
use of artificial smoke in elevated temperatures - previously limited
to pyrotechnic smoke bombs - is required. Indeed, for some applications,
customers have reported the smoke persisting to almost 200°C.
Portable Smoke Machine - can deliver quick dispersing
smoke (PS21) or long lasting (PS23). Off-power facility on basic
High Output Smoke Generator - continuous high output
2.2kW machine with a choice of fluids available for either quick
dispersing smoke or persistent. 240/110v.
Based Smoke Machine - oil-based smoke machines
with continuous high output for large scale applications (see
photo below). The generated smoke can withstand high temperatures.
