SMOKE GENERATORS FOR FIRE TRAINING

Tough tools for serious training

HAAGEN smoke generators use smart controls to continuously produce the best smoke possible for fire and emergency services training. Built on a steel chassis with all metal structural components, these smoke generators are built to handle the toughest training demands. Advanced sensors and controls enable HAAGEN smoke generators to produce a continuous supply of smoke without recharging or reheating.

Whether you are doing search and rescue, ventilation or initial fire attack exercises, HAAGEN smoke generators don’t stop until your training is done.

 Smoke Generator ETNA

With built-in handles, steel chassis and rubberised feet, the smoke generator ETNA is portable enough to be easily moved, but tough enough to handle the demands of firefighter training. Smart controls and an integrated smoke liquid tank enable the ETNA to produce smoke continuously for hours.

Smoke Generator VESUVIUS

The Smoke Generator VESUVIUS is a heavy-duty, high-volume smoke generator for the most demanding training scenarios. Dual heaters and a specialised heat exchanger ensure efficient smoke production on a large-scale. With integrated handles and built-in wheels the VESUVIUS can easily be repositioned in between training evolutions.

TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES

Ventilation Training

The high volume of continuous smoke is ideal for horizontal or vertical ventilation exercises and helps show the effects of Positive Pressure Ventilation.

Search & Rescue Training

Challenge firefighters to find victims in low-visibility during search and rescue or thermal imaging drills.

Large Area Search Training

Quickly fill buildings with dense smoke for large area search drills.

Mask Confidence Training

Create a zero visibility environment in seconds for mask confidence training.

 

HOW IT WORKS

TRADITIONAL SMOKE MACHINES

All smoke machines create smoke by pumping smoke liquid through heaters. As heat energy is transferred from the heaters to the smoke liquid, the heaters inevitably cool down. Once below a certain temperature smoke can no longer be generated, which is why smoke machines not designed for fire training need time to reheat and recharge between discharges. To extend operating time, these smoke machines often start at a higher-than optimal temperature,  resulting in burnt particles. As smoke is generated, the heater temperature falls through the optimal range to below optimal resulting in “wet” smoke that leaves a residue. The smoke liquid is then cut off to give the heaters time to recover.

HAAGEN SMOKE GENERATORS

HAAGEN smoke generators are different. Instead of a constant flow of smoke liquid and a wide range of heater temperatures, HAAGEN smoke generators control the amount of liquid delivered to the heaters to precisely balance the heat transfer, ensuring a constant temperature and a constant supply of high quality smoke. This balance is achieved through advanced sensors and controls utilised by HAAGEN smoke generators. This technology not only provides a continuous supply of smoke, but also ensures the highest quality smoke possible with minimal burnt or unvaporised particles.

HAAGEN smoke generators generate a high quality, dense, uniform, “dry” smoke through the use of advanced controls and a specific smoke liquid formula. Heaters and liquid pumps are controlled by on-board electronics to precisely bring the smoke liquid to the right temperature, ensuring a continuous supply of high quality smoke.

ACCESSORIES

Smoke Liquid

HAAGEN Smoke Liquid (5L & 20L) has been developed to produce a dense, thick smoke with an extended hang-time.

Wireless remote control

The wireless remote control can operate two different smoke generators separately or at the same time.
