The Mini Colt 4S Smoke Generator by Concept Engineering / Smoke Systems Ltd is an high capacity smoke generator designed to combine the advantages of portability of the Concept Air Trace smoke generator to the power of the Concept Smoke Colt 4 (Basic) smoke machine, combined with a stainless steel shell.
The Mini Colt 4 is a more compact, lightweight and practical version of Concept Smoke Colt 4 (Basic), known worldwide for fire training, air flows display, air currents testing, small-medium scale leaks test, …
Like the larger version, the Mini Colt 4 is suitable for fire authorities, shipboard training, HVAC contractors, thanks to its extreme ease of use and reliability. The Mini Colt 4S (stainless steel) version is besides specifically designed for use in clean rooms and pharmaceutical containment environments, as well as analytical laboratories, thanks to the easy to clean stainless steel cladding.
The artificial smoke produced by Mini Colt 4S portable smoke generator is thick, safe (non-toxic), dry, controllable and extremely persistent, with a particle size of just 0.2 μ – MMAD (micron – mass median aerodynamic diameter), the smallest particle size of any smoke machines.
The fluid used to produce the water-based white smoke is a combination of purified water and pharmaceutical grade glycerine (CAS 56-81-5 / EINECS 200-289-5).
The Mini Colt 4S uses a can of pressurized aerosol (the same used by the Colt 4 smoke machine) to pump the fluid through the 1.1 kw heat exchanger, which is guaranteed for life.
Each aerosol canister will allow about 15 minutes of smoke production at full output.
The use of aerosol canisters reduces the number of moving elements within the device to only one, with a consequent ease of maintenance and reliability.
This portable smoke generator further features a handle with an integrated switch for the generation of smoke upon request: the smoke output is variable and completely controllable (0 -> maximum).
The Mini Colt 4 smoke generator can be used connected to the mains power line or in “Off-Power” mode: it doesn’t need battery but has a resistance to take on temperature before starting up; once preheated, using the retained energy within the high mass heat exchanger, it is capable of producing a significant amount of smoke as required without power, allowing you to carry the generator around without a trailing electrical lead.
As for the performance, it is equivalent to Concept Smoke Colt 4 Basic and mounts the same set of accessories.
It can indeed be used for a precise smoke canalization in combination with flexible ducting hoses (25, 50 or 75 mm), using appropriate ducting adapters.
