Smoke Safety

How Safe is Artificial Smoke?

Concept do not compromise on quality or safety. We have been producing artificial smoke systems since 1962, and have a comprehensive technical library of health and safety reports, analyses, independent laboratory tests and particle distribution data second to none. The smoke or fog produced by our systems is amongst the safest available today.

Indeed, the scope of our ISO 9001 Quality Assurance certification specifically refers to "Design and manufacture of NON TOXIC smoke systems".

 

If you have a query relating to a particular application for artificial smoke and would like guidance on the suitability of various systems for that application, or indeed just general advice, please contact us. We will contact you by return.

A comprehensive Health and Safety Data pack, incorporating MSDS sheets and independent report from the like of Health and Safety Executive, US Navy and independent analytical laboratories is available on request.

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
