These use a self-contained expansion of gas which is generated by our pyrotechnic charge – this drives a piston which can be designed to thrust, push or cut. Opening, operating or puncturing across the widest variety of applications and industries.


AERO SMOKE pellets producE the greatest smoke volume

Aero smoke pellets have been designed and manufactured in the UK to generate some of the greatest smoke volume on the market – Up to 5 cubic metres of smoke for 30 seconds. The smoke density is excellent for testing flues, chimneys, pipework, drains and any other visual air testing requirements – Ignite the pellet with a flame (lighter or match) to initiate the test. Aero smoke pellets come in 3 different colours for you to differentiate during various testing situations and are BS5440 compliant.
