Concept Smoke Systems
based in Maidenhead, UNITED KINGDOM
The air tightness or leakage rate of a building is the uncontrolled flow of air through holes, gaps and cracks in the fabric of a building, which may not be detectable simply by looking at the outside of the building. Filling a building or void with smoke and pressurising that volume, will result in a visible discharge of smoke from any problem areas. Smoke is the perfect medium for discovering where leaks are and how big they are! Filling a `leaky` building, ductwork, pipes, aircraft or containment area with smoke and ideally adding a small amount of pressure to the area being tested, will result in a visible discharge of smoke and, simply put, the greater the volume of smoke, the bigger the leak.
