Fog and Flue Gas Simulator FS200

Ideal for tightness tests and leak detection in pipeline systems or flat roof constructions


This professional fog and flue gas simulator of German high-quality manufacturing is the most compact and lightest device in its performance class.

Thanks to smart slim design in robust aluminium lightweight construction, the transport of the FS200 to any application site will be no problem at all and you can benefit from a high range of ­motion even through bottlenecks such as safety ladders.

The ingenious canister holder of the FS200 can be unlocked and folded out in a matter of seconds.

This way, the floor space is increased and provides more stability even on ­disadvantageous undergrounds like gravelled flat roofs.

The extremely powerful turbine as well as the fluid pump of the FS200 can be infinitely adjusted in their performance for fog conveyance, hence be attuned more precisely to individual operating conditions.

Moreover, the intelligent power coupling of turbine, heating and pump ensures a consistently dense fog flow lasting several minutes without postheating-­related interruptions even during maximum turbine performance.

The FS200’s fluid consumption is agreeably low and can amount to a maximum of no more than 100 ml per minute.

Tightness test and leak detection

By means of feeding fog into pipeline systems, tank facilities or sanitary domestic installations, leakages or faulty connections can be detected quickly and easily.

Using the flue gas method, insulated flat-roofed or terrace constructions can be effectively and inexpensively checked for leakages, since the especially dense white fog is visible from afar when emerging from the leak even on larger areas.

The flue gas detection is also ideally suited for intermediate measurements during the building phase of complex flat-roofed constructions.

Areas, which are later only poorly or completely inaccessible, can as a precaution be checked for leakages to avoid structural damages caused by leaks beforehand.

Sophisticated in every detail – the FS200 impresses with many practice-oriented equipment features

The robust slim design of the FS200 provides a high degree of mobility even in bottlenecks.

Possible applications:

  • Fire simulation, respiratory protection and disaster control exercises
  • Tightness tests
  • Flat roof leak detection
  • Exercise for smoke extraction
  • Checking of smoke outlets
  • Checking of air discharge, air inlet and exhaust air openings
  • Control of smoke extraction in escape routes
  • Detection of faulty connections in piping networks, tank farms or wastewater systems
  • Locating of undercuts in dams and dykes

Control of smoke extraction and disaster control exercises

The flue gas simulator is ideally suited for disaster control exercises of the fire brigade – optionally, combustion chamber and coloured smoke cartridges are also available for the training exercise.

Furthermore, using the FS200, the functioning of smoke outlets or smoke extraction systems for escape routes even in larger or subterranean buildings can be tested and visualized realistically.
