Hot Fire Training

  • Highest degree of temperature resistance from simulant smoke (200°C+)
  • Almost 50 years experience with hot fire training centre installations world wide!
  • Over 100 ViCount systems installed in the worlds largest hot fire training centre HMS Excellent /  Raleigh 
  • Work in conjunction with LPG fire places, used to top up smoke levels during carbonaceous burns
  • Creating thermally bouyant smoke to replicate real smoke spread
  • Helping to create a controllable training environment with extreme realism

Concept's ViCount smoke generators are installed throughout the world in quality hot fire training centres - providing the most realistic artificial smoke effect possible. They are also used to add smoke during carbonaceous burns.

The majority of fire training centres and schools use gas to replicate the appearance and heat of a real fire but one thing gas doesn't produce is smoke!

The ViCount range of oil-based smoke generators from Concept produces a smoke with a temperature resistance up to 200C, so realism can be added to Hot Fire simulators
effectively and safely.

Water-based smoke in contrast will layer at temperatures from 40—60C and so, if used in a hot fire compartment, the smoke is effectively pushed to the floor, so the trainees are standing in clear (though hot!) air.

The world’s largest maritime Hot Fire Training centre (HMS Excellent) has accumulated over 750,000 operating hours on ViCount systems since 2001. The reliability and serviceability of the systems is ranked by the facility operator as 95%.

Our users say: 

"We could not believe the difference in smoke effect we achieved within the simulator, simply by using the ViCount smoke!"

Testimonials

Building Envelope Technologies Ltd

"We have been using the ViCount unit now for some time as our main method of generating smoke for air leakage path identification as part of building airtightness tests.

The speed at which the unit builds smoke is very impressive and consistently in line with the guidance given by yourselves.

The nature and density of the smoke produced proves very effective when observed from outside the building giving sufficient time for and allowing easy observation of emerging smoke and leakage paths. The very persistent effect has allowed us to test buildings with volumes up to 40,000 m3 with just two units.

The very dry nature of smoke (i.e. small particle size) has meant that there have been no instances of contamination of the buildings following the test.

We have found the continuing technical support provided by Concept to be prompt and effective in answering queries and allowing us to get the most out of our equipment."
