Oil Mist Generation

  • A unique Oil Mist Generator designed and manufactured by Concept Smoke Systems 
  • High, continuous oil fog / mist output 0 - 850mg/sec
  • Programmable set point to allow for various oil types
  • Heated Oil Reservoir, to ensure consistent viscosity - nominal 5Ltr capacity with sight glass
  • Splash proof switches, indicators, microprocessor controllers & remote operation
  • Adjustable mixing ratio of inert gas / oil

Concept’s OMG is used by many of the worlds leading specialists in Oil Mist Detection including Specs, Dr Horn , Honeywell, Kidde, Valcom, Daihatsu, Schaller and Kwangsan.

Principles of Operation

The oil mist media is stored in the OMG in a heated pressure tank, the temperature of which can be controlled to ensure a consistent and appropriate oil viscosity. Temperature control of the reservoir is via it's own PID microprocessor controller, allowing independent control from ambient to 70°C.

The heat exchanger within the OMG is controlled by a second programmable microprocessor controller, the parameters of which can be adjusted to suit the specific physical properties of the oil in question. The high watt density cartridge heaters within the heat exchanger are controlled via a solid state relay, which proportionally bursts power to the heat exchanger to maintain optimum response time with minimum overshoot.

Oil mist can be produced above a minimum temperature alarm value, which can also be adjusted to suit the physical properties of the test oil. Once this state is achieved, oil mist is produced by pressurising the integral oil tank with an inert carrier gas.

A mixture of oil and inert gas is then passed through the precision, machine heat exchanger chamber. The oil is vapourised, and the resulting vapour condenses on exiting the heat exchanger to form a dense, controllable oil mist / fog.

 

 

Safety

Concept Smoke Oil mist has been extensively tested by independent bodies, including the Health and Safety Executive to ensure that it is non toxic and non flammable, Copies of the Health and Safety Data Pack are available on request. However, risk assessments should be carried out prior to the use of other "oils types" through the OMG.

Supplied with:

  • 2 litres Smoke Fluid A-OGC
  • 5 metre Remote Control
  • Operating instructions and service kit

ViCount use in Hot Fire Trainer

The machine has performed flawlessly up to this point and I purchased the machine from you at least six or seven years ago.

I have to confess I have never cleaned the orifice with the drill as you mentioned.

Actually, after the install, I have never worked on the machine again which, I am sure, is at least neglect on my part.

We originally had two smoke generators in the trainer, one fore and one aft.   The other machine (not Concepts) is quite a bit older
and it quit about two years ago but we found that the ViCount generated so much smoke we did not really need two machines.

The machine is protected from the heat of the trainer by a bulkhead with a port for the smoke to get through.

To give you an idea of the efficiency and quantity and the character of the smoke, the ceiling temperature inside the trainer as verified by two gauges reaches about 1300 degrees F. The smoke level inside the trainer is maintained quite adequately from the floor to about the
four and one half foot level but not much higher due to the temperature. We have found that it burns off at about 450 degrees F (230C).

Your smoke machine has trained hundreds of line Firefighters from all over the US including from major metropolitan Fire Departments such as Los Angeles County Fire, Pasadena Fire, San Jose Fire, Las Vegas Fire, Oakland Fire, Berkeley Fire, Sacramento Metro Fire, Cal Fire, and many federal agencies as well.

The training and experience those fire fighters receive in the intense heat and disorientingly smoky environment the ViCount helps create has without question saved lives and injuries as well as millions of dollars of property damage that may have occurred without the level of training
the ViCount helps provide.

Thank you for your help and support.

Best regards,
Mitch
