Do you need a high-performance Smoke Wand for validating airflow in critical applications?
Smoke Wand Fog Generators for Air Flow Visualization
Smoke wands, foggers, or fog generators are used to make the ambient pattern of air and airflow visible for testing and analysis. HVAC technicians use smoke wands to detect leaks in ducts, monitor turbulence in ventilation systems and test HEPA filters. Laboratory and pharmacy managers use smoke wands to test air flow in biosafety cabinets and chemical fume hoods to make sure that they comply with USP 800 and ensure the safety of their workers.
Even though the term smoke wand is common, fog generator is a more appropriate term for DegreeC products like °C Breeze and FlowMarker because they emit thermally-neutral fog rather than smoke. The smoke-free fog is FDA-GRAS approved and non-depositing oilless. °C Breeze has a variety of optional nozzle attachments as follows:
- MiniFlow Nozzle (for finer fog stream and throttling effect)
- PlanarFlow Nozzle (longer nozzle with perforations for planar flow visualization
- FlowBulb Nozzle (media filter for enhanced flow visualization in low velocity applications)
What is a Smoke Wand?
Since air is an invisible gas, Smoke Wands, or in this case, Fog Generators, are used for air flow visualization — or to make the flow and pattern of air visible to the human eye. The testing of airflow is a requirement in some industries and critical in situations where proper ventilation is necessary to ensure the safety of people.
