Concept's ViCount and Vulcan oil based smoke generators use an inert gas such as CO2 as a carrier for the smoke fluid when it is passed through the heat exchanger.

The ViCount and Vulcan smoke generators are typically used for large scale exercises and Fire Training applications, where continuous, quality smoke output is required.

When Carbon Dioxide (CO2) passes through the cylinder valve, the gas naturally expands and during this process it becomes significantly cooler.  This can cause the moisture within the CO2 to freeze the regulator, which will restrict the flow of gas or potentially block the system.

Concept's CO2 heater eliminates this effect.

The  heater connects onto the cylinder outlet and the inlet of the regulator directly.

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
