Concept Colt 4 - Portable Smoke Generators


Colt 4 Turbo in operation, off power



Robust and portable smoke generators

There are two types of Colt that produce different types of smoke; the Colt 3 makes smoke that disperses quickly, the Colt 4 makes long-lasting smoke.

Colts are also available in two versions. The Basic version allows you to operate the unit off-mains power - you can produce a considerable amount of smoke 'off power' using the retained energy within the high mass heat exchanger, allowing you to carry the generator around, making smoke as required, without a trailing electrical lead. After being on mains for around 15 minutes, the Colt will generate large amounts of smoke for around 2 minutes whilst off power. The Remote version Colt comes with a remote control (remote will not work off-power).

Connected to the mains, all Colts can operate continuously at full output.

In service with numerous fire authorities world-wide, many NATO forces (including the USN for shipboard training), as well as analytical laboratories, cleanroom specialists and HVAC contractors, the Colt has a reputation for simplicity of operation and reliability.

The use of pressurised smoke fluid canisters reduces the number of moving parts within the machine to just one, resulting in exceptional serviceability and reliability.

The Colt 4 units are ideal for when you require extremely dense concentrations of smoke, or extremely large volumes need to be filled with smoke. This is because smoke produced by the Colt 4 is very persistent. The Colt 4 Turbo model generates almost twice the volume of smoke as the standard Colt 4.

The new Colt 4 Twin Turbo is the newest variant, giving twice the output of that of a Colt 4 Turbo. It incorporates a larger, twin helix, precision machined heat exchanger block. This new heat exchanger technology results in twice the smoke output of the Colt 4 Turbo but still only uses 2 x 1100w heaters and is one of the most powerful hand held smoke generators available today.

Features:

  • Compact size, robust construction
  • Hand portable
  • Off-power capable
  • Continuous full output (on mains power)
  • Variable output (0 -> maximum)
  • Persistent smoke (Colt 4 / Colt 4 Turbo)
  • Quickly dispersing smoke (Colt 3)
  • Non-toxic, thick, dry, white smoke
  • NATO codified

Construction:

  • Precision, machined heat exchanger, guaranteed for life
  • Utilises aerosol canisters for safe, convenient operation
  • Available in 'basic' or 'remote' formats
  • Light and portable


Made in Britain

5 year parts warranty.
Lifetime guarantee on heat exchanger.

Operation:

  • Basic format (with off-power facility)
  • Remote format (both on-board operation, or remote) (Unit cannot be used off-power)
  • Particle size 0.2 - 0.3 micron, mass median diameter - the smallest particle size of any machines we sell.

Remote model is supplied with
5 metre remote control

Available for 230v or 110v

DUCTING ADAPTORS & HOSE
  

Ducting adaptors attach to the front of the machine to allow secure connection of ducting hose to allow smoke to be positioned precisely, in hard to reach places or inside containers.

All our ducting hoses are now internally lined to be smooth thereby reducing frictional losses. When you duct smoke, you are restricting the smoke particles so deposition in the hose over time is inevitable. Using this machine and this type of hose, deposition is minimised.
