There are two types of Colt manufactured for Pea Soup that produce different
types of smoke; the Colt 3 makes smoke that disperses quickly,
the Colt 4 makes long-lasting smoke.
Colts are also available in two versions. The
Basic version allows you to operate the unit off-mains power
- you can produce a considerable amount of
'off power' using the retained energy within the high mass
heat exchanger, allowing you to carry the generator around,
as required, without a trailing electrical lead. After being
on mains for around 15 minutes, the Colt will generate large
for around 2 minutes whilst off power. The Remote version
Colt comes with a remote control (remote will not work off-power).
Connected to main power, all Colts can operate
continuously at full output.
In service with numerous fire authorities world-wide,
many NATO forces (including the USN for shipboard training),
as well as analytical laboratories, cleanroom specialists
and HVAC contractors, the Colt has a reputation for simplicity
of operation and reliability.
The use of pressurised smoke fluid canisters reduces the number of moving parts within the machine to just one, resulting in exceptional serviceability and reliability.
The Colt 4 units made for Pea Soup are ideal for when you require
extremely dense concentrations of smoke, or extremely large
volumes need to be filled with smoke. This is because smoke
produced by the Colt 4 is very persistent. The Colt
4 Turbo model generates almost twice the volume of
smoke as the standard Colt 4.
The new Colt 4 Twin Turbo is the newest variant, giving twice the output of that of a Colt 4 Turbo. It incorporates a larger, twin helix, precision machined heat exchanger block. This new heat exchanger technology results in twice the smoke output of the Colt 4 Turbo but still only uses 2 x 1100w heaters and is one of the most powerful
generators available today.

Overseas Use - non-pressurised fluid canisters
Overseas shipping costs
are generally reduced by ordering refillable canister(s) and containers
of smoke fluid instead of the above pre-pressurised aerosols.
Canister (supplied singly) Fill
with fluid (below) and pressurise to 100PSI / 7 bar with a hand
pump, airline (e.g. in a garage forecourt) or inert gas supply.
Can be used 25 times+ if used with care.
5 litres Smoke Fluid for use
with refillable canister (above) for Colt 4 models
Will fill the refillable canister approx. 14 times.
High Pressure Shock Pump - double action, with
gauge, used to pressurise the refillable canister (above) to
100 PSI. Small and portable, requires approx. 100 activations
to pressurise canister. Photo at left shows
pump next to refillable canister.
Pressure Stirrup Pump - with gauge, used to pressurise
the refillable canister (above) to 100 PSI. Larger than shock
pump above, but only requires around 5 actions to pressurise
the canister. Photo at left shows pump
next to refillable canister.
High Pressure Foot Pump
- with gauge, used to pressurise
the refillable canister (above) to 100 PSI. Smaller than
stirrup pump above, but only requires around 25 actions to
pressurise the canister but using your leg instead of your arm. Photo at
left shows refillable canister next to pump.
(heavy duty 25mm adaptor shown second from left)
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
or inside containers, fume cupboards, spray booths, etc.
All our ducting hoses are internally lined to be
smooth, thereby reducing frictional losses and smoke
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.
