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

Warsash Maritime Academy

"We have always found that one of the most effective ways to recreate the sort of conditions caused by a fire, either on a ship or off-shore structure, is by adding safe, artificial smoke.  Cadets sometimes think they can remember escape routes but when they are confronted with almost no visibility due to the thickness of the smoke, they realise just how disoriented you can become.  The Academy has used Colt's for years now and we have always been more than happy with the way they perform and the service we receive from Concept Smoke Systems!"
