Jem Roadie X-Stream Smoke Machine

Watch a video of this smoke machine in action

The Roadie is a Jem classic, a rugged touring smoke machine which saw service on some of the decades classic tours such as the Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd. The Roadie X-Stream is the only fogger capable of filling the largest stadium stages featuring a huge 2 x 9.5 litre fluid capacity, a high output fan and continuous high output thanks to the twin block, 4 output, 5000W vaporizing system.
Like its forerunner, the Roadie X-Stream is capable of projecting a variety of effects, from a controlled haze, to a high-density fog, over a very large area. The remarkable output and length of projection is largely due to Jem’s unique ‘X-Stream’ airflow system ensuring long throw smoke projection.
On board controls allow for independent smoke possibilities and auto-timer control while fan levels ensure perfect effect mixing. A rugged hand held remote control is also included. Control via DMX is a standard feature.
It is a must that a smoke machine withstands the heavy treatment associated with today’s tours as well as operating in an open-air environment. The Roadie X-Stream’s high output and strong and durable construction make it suitable for all outdoor events – even in bad weather. Unique overheat protection is guaranteed through a Direct Thermal Protection device.
Large discotheques, film and production studios, as well as fire training and disaster simulations may also find the new Roadie X-Stream a useful smoker or hazer. The Roadie X-Stream’s rugged construction makes it the obvious choice for touring production companies.

This 3 digit LED user interface allows you full and user-friendly access to the different functionalities of the unit.

On-Board DMX
With onboard DMX you will have access to the machine from any DMX controller or desk.

This small yet crucial component is the last line of defence against catastrophic failure. This machine's DTPD is made from a solid ceramic composite. This guarantees extremely precise overheat monitoring and is unaffected by ambient temperature changes.

Electronic Pump Ramping (EPR)
EPR is an intelligent means of warning of a drop in temperature which could result in 'wet smoke' (residue). The pumps respond to this signal by running slower and pumping less fluid, thus allowing the heaters to restore optimum operational temperature. This guarantees a continuous flow of smoke using highly efficient, lower wattage heaters.

Electronic Low Fluid Cut-off System
This technology is fitted to all machines designed for continuous operation. To eliminate the risk of running dry and burning out the pump, this unique electronic sensing system will automatically shut-off the machine, protecting all major components.

Soft Start Electronics
The 'crack' created during the initial burst of smoke is caused by the pump pressure overcoming the incredible back pressure of the heat exchanger. The unique Soft Start Electronics in this machine gradually powers the pump, eliminating this crack and ensuring a quieter and smoother operational level following initial start up.

D-Tec Vaporizing System
This unique system produces a very high smoke output using a relatively low wattage heat source. The secret is its high alluvial mass and its twin, cuprous, oval helicoils. 3.5 metre helicoils and precision casting ensure maximum heat exchange between the efficient 1500-watt heater and the twin fluid carrying coils.

On-Board Remote System
Greatly appreciated by rental companies, this hand-held remote can be stored during transit on-board the machine, making it easy to find at show time and eliminating transit vulnerability. But storage isn't the only advantage. Portability is greatly enhanced by having on board controls.

Analogue Link
Whether you've run out of DMX channels or simply want to link two smoke/haze machines together and operate them from a single remote, Jem’s link facility is the solution. This feature even allows multi-machine connection, making operation a simple one-finger action.

Fluid Container (2 x 9.5 litre)
All Jem smoke, haze and heavy fog machines are designed to carry removable fluid containers of varying sizes depending on the model's application. The removable container makes for quicker refills and protects the machine from damage through spillage in transit.

Heat Exchangers (5000W)
All Jem heat exchangers are designed for high efficiency performance. Only the purest grade LM24 aluminium is used in the production process which eliminates the risk of porosity (pockets of gas within the casting which can cause heater failure). All heat exchangers contain cuprous helicoils of at least 2.8 metres in length, ensuring a continuous flow of pure, dry, white smoke.
