This Smoke Pen provides a continuous stream of dense, non-toxic white smoke perfect for leak-tests and air-flow studies. The Smoke Pen works like a mechanical pencil-simply adjust the patented smoke-emitting wick to provide 10mm of exposed length, then light the wick with a match or lighter. Provides a continuous trail of non-toxic white smoke until extinguished by replacing the protective cover. The unused portion of the wick stores safely in the barrel of the pen. The reusable Smoke Pen comes with one wick, providing a total of 30 mins of continuous smoke or about 60 individual 30-second tests.
The thin, dense stream of smoke reacts to the smallest of drafts. The smoke is cool and non-toxic smoke is perfect for finding air leaks around ducting, exhaust hoods and laboratory equipment. Also ideal for air balancing, verifying ventilation systems, testing smoke alarms, and verifying negative or positive air pressure.
