Testing drains and pipes using smoke machines

We sell a specialist fog machine kit specifically designed for testing the integrity of drains. It generates a persistent water-based non-toxic smoke and is very easy to use.

It may just transform the way you test drains!

Concept Portable Drain / Pipe Testing Smoke Generator


The DrainTester in off-power operation

Perfect for pest controllers

“an invaluable tool for solving
rodent and odour problems”
SPCO Jan 03

A user friendly, effective and non toxic means of introducing smoke into drains - the DRAINTESTER is the ultimate tool.

THE DRAINTESTER
• Clean, simple and cost effective, with a 5 year parts warranty
• Produces smoke on demand - simple push button operation
• Can be user “off power” once pre-heated
• Uses re-sealable aerosols to produce up to 15 minutes of
smoke per canister

THE SMOKE
• Can travel through hundreds of metres of drains
• Dense, highly visible, with a distinct odour
• Is water based, non toxic and completely controllable

THE BENEFITS
• Drastically reduced running costs
• User friendly, easy operation
• Greatly enhanced performance and safety compared to existing pyrotechnic smoke methods

Features:

  • Compact size, robust construction
  • Hand portable
  • Off-power capable
  • Continuous full output (on mains power)
  • Variable output (0 -> maximum)
  • Persistent, dense, non-toxic, dry, white smoke

Construction:

  • Precision, machined heat exchanger, guaranteed for life!
  • Utilises aerosol canisters for safe, convenient operation
  • Light and portable

Made in Britain
 
Ships worldwide

Operation:

  • Connected to mains power, can produce smoke continuously
  • After 15 minutes connected to power, can produce smoke disconnected for up to 2 minutes
  • Particle size 0.2 - 0.3 micron, mass median diameter - the smallest particle size of any machines we sell.

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

The DrainTester allows you to operate the unit off-mains power - you can produce a considerable amount of smoke using the retained energy within the high mass heat exchanger, allowing you to carry the generator around, making smoke as required, without a trailing electrical lead. After being on mains for around 15 minutes, the DrainTester will generate large amounts of smoke for around 2 minutes whilst off power. Connected to the mains, the DrainTester can operate continuously at full output.

Operation off the mains power supply? Yes

The DrainTester's basic principle of operation is simple. Use the DrainTester to fill the pipework with smoke. The pipe system should ideally have an open end. When smoke starts to exit the open end, this signals the pipework is filled with smoke and you simply need to cap it off. Leaks in the pipes will be shown by smoke exiting from them. The DrainTester does not produce pressurised smoke, but is normally sufficient to visualise any leaks.

DUCTING ADAPTORS & HOSE

  

Alternative 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 pipes. These hoses are not as heavy duty as the hose supplied as part of the DrainTester kit above, so more care must be taken.

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.
