PS27: THE DRAGON - High Output Smoke Machine

The DRAGON is our highest quality smoke generator is well suited to applications where continuous, high smoke output is required with low fluid consumption. There is no compromise in the quality of components in this unit. It generates the most persistent water-based smoke of any smoke machine available.

Ideal for:

  • fire training
  • leak testing
  • special effects
  • spray booth clearance testing
  • air flow visualisation
  • installations
  We ship worldwide
  Made in Britain under ISO:9001 QA
5 year warranty


  • Can produce high quality smoke continuously at maximum output
  • Variable output control (0 -> 100%)
  • Can produce very persistent smoke (Fluid A), quick dispersing smoke (Fluid B) or medium hang-time smoke (Fluid C) as required
  • Efficient fluid use (50ml per minute, 100% output)

“It’s beautifully made, works well and from what we have seen here makes extremely efficient use of the fluid.”
Fire Professional Magazine

Three types of fluid available for use in the Dragon:

Fluid Type Smoke Hang Time (at 20C, approx)
1.5 hours +
1 - 3 minutes
25 minutes


  • Precision, machined heat exchanger, guaranteed for life!
  • Integral 2 litre reservoir, with sightglass
  • Fully digital temperature control
  • Solid state switching
  • High quality pump, truly continuous rating
  • 5 metre wired remote control (wireless remote option)

Smoke particle size using Dragon Fluid A (very persistent) is small - 0.2 - 0.3 microns (compared to an average of 5 - 30 microns for typical 'entertainment' smoke machines).

How does the DRAGON differ from other water based smoke machines?

  • Continuous & constant 100% high output - fog output does not 'ramp down' to maintain continuous fog like on most machines.
    The DRAGON maintains full output volume, continuously.
  • All components have been chosen for quality and reliability. The heat exchanger is guaranteed for life and the pump is truly 100% continuously rated.
  • Particle size (consistently 0.2 micron) using fluid A is the smallest of any fog machine in the world. This means low fluid consumption, long hang time (fluid A) for thick fog and no discernible residue.

The DRAGON is in daily use in fire training centres, universities, building sites, theme parks, power stations, navy ships, art installations, wind tunnels and spray booths all over the world.

Wireless remote control option
available upon request

High Output Smoke Machine

Customer comment from Elk Grove Fire Dept, California:
"We love the machines and are very impressed with them. We have two machines and they get used very heavily every week for ship board, stuctural, confined space and rescue training. The smoke produced by them is awesome."

Each PS27 Dragon unit comes with 5m wired remote control and 2.5 litres of smoke fluid.

A 'de-rated' version of the 110v unit is available for US customers who need to be able to plug the unit in to a standard domestic US mains socket. The unit draws 1.6kW (16A) instead of 2.2kW (20A).

PS27ER: DRAGON Smoke Generator with external fluid pumping facility

PS27ER Dragon - Brochure PDF

Product code: PS27ER

Specification as above except internal fluid tank references. The PS27ER version of the Dragon comes with an external fluid pumping inlet and 5 metre fluid pipe which allows for the remote location of the (supplied) 25 litre fluid tank.

Ideally suited for installations in theme parks, museums, art installations, galleries, etc. where very low maintenance is required.

If a wireless remote is required on this model (as per unit in photo at left), please contact us to order.

Custom timer control remote also available.
Auto-airline compressed air purge fuction option available. Contact us for info.

PS27IP: IP65 rated DRAGON Smoke Generator

PS27IP Dragon - Brochure PDF

Product code: PS27IP.

All the features of the Dragon PS27ER above, but with all electrical and mechanical elements housed in an IP65 rated weatherproof enclosure.

Specifically designed for ourdoor use in both theme parks or visitor attractions, as well as in hostile or wet fire training environments, this IP65 rated version of the Dragon comes with an external fluid inlet and 5 metre fluid pipe which allows for the remote location of the 25 litre fluid tank (provided) for easy and infrequent refilling.

Whether for outdoor installations in a theme park ride, visitor attraction, art installations, billboard, etc. the PS27IP excels where a high quality, 100% output rated, low maintenance is required.

Timer control and auto airline purge options are available on this model, please contact us to order.

Here you see the PS27 Dragon in operation with ducting adaptor and 25mm silicon lined ducting hose attached.

For Entertainment Applications...

You'll find Dragon smoke machines in use by special effects teams in most major motion pictures and film franchises and also at a wide variety of installation locations including: the famous Golden Teapot of Derry, Legoland Windsor, Center Parcs, Alton Towers, National Space Centre, Shanghai Disneyland, trade fairs, Lullingstone Castle, Hampton Court Flower Show, Loch Ness Exhibition Centre, inside a 4.5 metre tall animatronic Man Engine ‘Best Arts Project’ 2017, the largest mechanical puppet ever constructed in Britain... and once even a couple of Dragon units were in the famous corner window of Selfridges on London's Oxford Street for several weeks!



Smoke machine ducting adaptors
Ducting adaptors

25mm silicon lined flexible ducting hose

25mm neoprene flexible ducting hose



Available in three diameters:

  • 25mm
  • 50mm
  • 75mm

A steel ducting adaptor (shown left) attaches to the front of the machine to secure the position of the ducting hose inlet allowing smoke to be positioned precisely, in hard to reach places, a distance away from the machine itself, etc.

All our ducting hoses are internally lined to be smooth, thereby reducing frictional losses and smoke particle impaction.

When ducting smoke, you are restricting the smoke particles movement in a limited space and so deposition in the hose over time is inevitable with any machine. But by using a Pea Soup smoke machine and this type of hose, deposition is minimised.

25mm Ducting
25mm diameter heavy duty ducting adaptor
25mm silicon lined flexible ducting x 2 metre length
Stays rigid - ideal for clearance and air flow tests use as a 'wand'. Silicon lined to resist heat from the smoke at this small diameter.
25mm silicon lined flexible ducting x 4 metre length
As above, but a 4 metre length
25mm neoprene lined flexible ducting x 2 metre length
25mm neoprene lined flexible ducting x 4 metre length

50mm and 75mm Reinforced Ducting

  • 100% PVC film wall with galvanised steel protective binding spiral.
  • -20C to +80C temperature range
  • Compressible 1:6
  • 0.4 kg weight per metre (50mm), 0.5kg weight per metre (75mm)
  • Bend radius: 30mm for 50mm dia, 45mm for 75mm dia
  • Each 50mm and 75mm hose comes complete with a stepped hose clip included allowing secure attachment to ducting adaptor.
    Spare clips are available.

NB Hose clips (shown below) included with 75mm and 50mm hoses keep the hose attached to the ducting adaptor which is ordered separately.

Ducting hose clips for 50mm and 75mm ducting only
50mm Ducting
50mm diameter ducting adaptor
50mm diameter reinforced flexible ducting x 10 metre length, with hose clip (ducting adaptor required)
75mm Ducting
75mm diameter ducting adaptor

PS802: Custom Transit / Storage Case for Dragon Smoke Machine
With hinged lid.
Weatherproof cover for Dragon Smoke Machine
Allows use of ducting adaptor still, and comes with transparent window for control panel.
PS325: PS Centrifugal Blower Fan
Continuously rated fan suitable for use with the PS27 / PS27ER to blow fog through ducting / pipework. Output can be ducted using 75mm diameter hose above. 240V/110V. ~4 week lead time.
Smoke Filtration Units filter smokey air effectively extracting all smoke in situations where venting the smoke to the outside is not possible.  

We can build the Dragon with a black chassis for special effects applications.
The above shows this with the timer remote control option.
