Code Description
PS23 ROCKET - 1.1kW persistent smoke machine
PS25 ROCKET TURBO - 2.2kW persistent smoke machine


  • Basic version & remote version (both on-board operation, off power, or remote)
  • Particle size 0.2 - 0.3 micron, mass median diameter - the smallest particle size of any smoke machine. ('Disco' systems' smoke particle size are usually 3 - 10 microns - a human hair is approx 100 microns). Fog produced by the heat exchanger in the Rocket has been subject to particle size analysis by the UK Atomic Energy Authority.

Available as 230v or 110v
(please specify when ordering)

Smoke Hang Time (at 20C)
1.5 hours +

Two control options available:

Basic - no remote (button on handle only)
Remote - with button on handle AND remote control on 5m cable

You can produce large volumes of smoke 'off power' allowing the smoke generator to be carried around, making smoke as required, without a trailing electrical lead. After being on mains for at least 15 minutes, the smoke machine can generate large amounts of smoke at full output for up to 2 minutes, or longer at lower output levels.

The remote control version can be used with the handle-mounted button when off-power, but not with the remote control (which requires power).

When connected to mains power, the Rocket can operate continuously at full 100% output
using the push button on the handle.

In service world-wide with numerous fire authorities, many military forces (including for shipboard training), as well as analytical laboratories, clean rooms (stainless steel version available), spray booths, building engineers, energy consultants and HVAC contractors, the Rocket smoke machines have a reputation for simplicity of operation and reliability.

Ideal for when you require extremely dense concentrations of smoke, or when large volumes need to be filled with smoke, the smoke produced by the Rocket is very persistent - a number of times more persistent than theatrical smoke machines. The ROCKET TURBO is a high power version and generates almost twice the volume of smoke as the standard model - it's one of the most powerful hand held smoke generators available today.
