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

Bekonscot - Managing Director

For several years we went through numerous smoke generators to simulate a "burning building", an important feature in our presentation.  Although the effect produced was good, the reliability, servicing and running costs of the system were always a headache, with smoke machines sometimes lasting a few weeks before they failed.

In June 2000, on recommendation, we contacted Concept Smoke Systems regarding the smoke installation.  A ViCount system was installed and commissioned later that year and has been operating without failure ever since!! Smoke chemical consumption has fallen dramatically, serviceability has been 100% and the effect is as impressive as ever.  Minimising issues relating to maintenance, and maximising reliability has given all of our visitors (some 200,000 per year) the benefit of seeing the smoke effect.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend these systems to other users who need reliable and cost-effective smoke!
