Oil-based and water-based fog - what's the
difference? Oil-based fog is much more dense and hangs
in the air many, many times longer than water based fog, as
the fog particles don't evaporate as quickly. It is perfectly
safe, non-toxic, intrinsically biodegradable and does
not leave residue! The Phantom's-oil based fog has
a temperature resistance of up to 200° celcius. The Phantom's
smoke is the safest in its class, out performing
water based systems substantially. The smoke has a bland smell
which the majority of users find is far less noticable than
water based smokes. Please note that the Phantom units can
be re-programmed to accept water based fluid as well.
smoke Our oil based machines have been used in
hundreds of critical applications including aircraft simulators
for the world's biggest aircraft manufacturers for over 35
years without any problems arising from deposition or residue.
You will likely notice a reduction in smoke fluid consumption
by 80 - 90% with these systems compared to water-based smoke
machines for similar if not better
No routine maintenance is required as the unit automatically
purges its heater block after every smoke issue. 4 models
are available for different needs. Users from fire training
centres to theme parks throughout the world have selected
these machines as their primary
system. Each unit comes with a 10
year warranty as standard, and a lifetime
guarantee on the heater block.
Smoke particle size is consistently 0.2 - 0.3 microns in diameter,
so they are ideal for HEPA filtration tests. ('Entertainment'
fog machines' particle size are generally around 10 to 50
times larger). They can be programmed to use Ondina EL or
Emery 3004 / Durasyn 164 - the approved oil chemical for HEPA
tests (water based smoke is not officially suitable for these
Leak Tests / Air Flow Visualisation
Ideally suited to large building envelope tests - the smoke
hangs for around 4 hours without evaporating or layering (unlike
water based smoke) which enables you to fill huge areas effectively
and efficiently for air tightness testing work.
Ventilation / Air Handling
For impulse / PPV (positive pressure ventilation) / road tunnel
/ car park ventilation tests for ventilation systems, the
only smoke that gives you the most superior results is from
the Phantom. It remains dense and highly visible over long
distances and test durations and does not evaporate due to
high speed air movement.
Wind Tunnels Visualisation
/ Air Flow Analysis
In LVA / PIV laser doppler anemometry the fog particles faithfully
follow flow dynamics. The fog does not evaporate in fast moving
air streams, ideal for open ended wind tunnels, large or small.
For visual perspective in closed (recirculating) small wind
tunnels (not PIV LVA) you can reprogram the machine to use
type B water based fluid which disperses quickly. As the Phantom
uses no fluid pump, an ultra-smooth smoke output at any output
level is ensured e.g. for laminar flow. PDF
Smoke Detector Tests
Unlike water-based smoke, oil-based smoke can be given thermal
buoyancy to closely replicate hot rising smoke from a real
fire. Ideal if your smoke detectors are very high up in the
ceiling. The smoke is persistent to 200C.
Parks / Installations
Reliability and running costs are the main factors for fixed
installations. These machines excel in both. They can also
be programmed to use oil or water based fluid for effects
with long or very short hang times.
TV / Film
Ideal for filming as it maintains constant smoke levels for
4 hours or more on a closed set - no need to keep topping-up
fog levels which could cause continuity problems.
The production of a consistent smoke with an extremely small
particle size is critical in ensuring that dense smoke concentrations
can be achieved within the simulator whilst keeping to a minimum
the actual chemical concentration within that environment.
Phantom systems utilise only a small fraction (10%) of the
amount of smoke chemical as water based options.
Not only does the smoke from the Phantom resist temperatures
up to 200C (making it ideal for hot fire training), but its
fluid use is unparalelled by any other machine producing such
a thick, dense, persistent smoke. It is also the safest smoke
available due to the huge reduction in smoke fluid chemical
required to achieve complete white-out. The smoke has a very
dull smell and is much less irritating compared to high concentrations
of water based fog. PDF

The units can also be adjusted to use our water-based
fluids (both quick dispersing and persistent) for further
flexibility in special effects or wind tunnels (dispersion
rates 1.5 minutes - 1.5 hours).

All Phantom units are available
for 230v or 110v, and come complete with container
of smoke oil (2.5 litres with PS31 and 5 litres with PS33), a 5
metre wired remote control, full CO2 cylinder (empty if being sent
outside UK), and CO2 regulator (USA customers are not sent either
regulator or cylinder due to thread differences and are given £60.00
discount on the UK purchase price of the machine - suitable regulators
and cylinders can be easily sourced locally for your future convenience).

Emery Oil is
the FDA approved media for challenging HEPA filters and does
not require your machine to be re-programmed. Suitable for
use only in Phantom smoke systems.
10 litre container Emery Oil
Cylinder Bracket Allows the 2kg CO2 (or any inert
gas) cylinder you use to be mounted onto the side of
the Phantom to make it a 'one piece' portable unit.
Another benefit is that it makes the unit exceptionally
stable and very hard to knock over. Can be retro-fitted
by the user onto existing units.
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.
