PPV & Impulse Ventilation Testing

  • Giving invaluable, highly realistic hands on training
  • Fixed installations or portable systems
  • Smoke does not evaporate like conventional water based training smoke
  • Teach candidates to clear smoke-filled environments quickly & efficiently
  • Used to demonstrate the pros and cons of negative & positive pressure ventilation 
  • 50 years experience in the generation of artificial smoke


When water-based artificial smoke is introduced into a rapidly moving air stream, the particles that make up the artificial smoke evaporate much more quickly than they do in a static environment.

So if you are looking to produce an artificial smoke that better represents the smoke created by a real fire, we would always recommend the ViCount smoke generator, the smoke from which is virtually unaffected by fast moving air streams.  Used world wide PPV training centre's and to test impulse ventilation systems.

A Home Office report into PPV (Positive pressure Ventilation) by the Head of the Fire Experimental Unit, Fire Research & Development concluded that the concept behind the technique of PPV was relatively easy to understand and the equipment simple to operate, but stressed the need for extensive training.

 

 

 

 

 

Our Users Say:

"We use smoke generators for fire simulations and positive pressure ventilation training for approx 10 hours per week.  The smoke adds realistic conditions for Fire Fighters to train in but with safety in mind.

Compared to our other generators, the Spirit 900 has much lower running costs."

Testimonials

UK Fire Brigade

After using the Spirit 900 Smoke Generator and attending Concept's complimentary service and maintenance course:

"Concept offer a fantastic after sales service whether it be maintenance courses or queries - fully satisfied.  With my experience of dealing with Concept I find it difficult to see where improvements can be made as I feel 100% satisfied with the product, information and answers to any queries.

I feel that it gives a more realistic setting for difficult exercises, which improves the experience and motivation of students / crews.  The only other way would be to use obstruction masks that take the realism out of any training.

I would like to add, having worked with Concept over the last 18months I have found it educational and the staff are a credit to the company.  I would like to thank all the staff for the patience they have shown with dealing with my queries."
