Smoke Test Aerosol





The professional range of detector test equipment which enables detectors to be tested, accessed and removed easily at heights up to 9m / 30ft.


Smoke detector test equipment uses Solo Aerosol, smoke test aerosol, dispersed using the Solo 330 smoke dispenser. This ensures the detector is not swamped with particles and does not leave a residue. Just one short burst is enough to set the detector into alarm.

Detectors can also be accessed and removed using the Solo 200 removal tool. This tool is suitable for a number of differently sized detectors and the design ensures that the tool remains parallel even when removing difficult to access detectors.

Feedback from a range of customers detailing their ideal smoke dispenser has resulted in the Solo 330. Lightweight, strong and simple to use, it has been truly designed for daily rigorous use.

The injection-moulded construction and swing frame of the Solo 330 make it the ideal tool for testing virtually all types and makes of modern smoke detectors at heights up to 9m.
The Solo 330 has been ergonomically designed for optimum use with the specially formulated Solo Aerosol. Together they offer fully controlled and efficient testing. Just a short burst of the aerosol is all that is needed to activate smoke detectors.
The Solo 330, developed using the latest 3D modelling techniques, has recently won a design award.
Robust - to withstand the rigours of everyday use
Strength and durability of modern plastics optimised - to ensure long life
Injection moulded plastic design - minimise weight
Spring-loaded mechanism - enables effective, but economic, aerosol delivery
Dispenser and patented diaphram contain particles - conserves aerosol
Aerosol spray not directed at detector - sensor not swamped with particles
Touch sensitive - ideal for testing detectors fitted to suspended ceilings
Universal - suits most detectors fitted from 'normal ceiling' height up to 9m
Clear cup and diaphragm - allows view of the detector LED whilst testing
Interchangeable with all other Solo tools

The SOLO 423/424* is a professional and robust tool for testing heat detectors fitted at heights up to 9m/30ft. Unlike the SOLO 461, it does require a power cord/mains lead but, conversely, does not require any special energy saving features

Available in both 110/120 and 220/240 volt versions
Designed for use on fixed temperature, rate of rise and combination detectors.
Suitable for any type of make spot/point type heat detector fitted at heights of up to 9m / 30ft.
Large clear cup fits over detector enabling a clear view of the detector LED.
Tests detectors up to 90°C/194°F operating temperature
Thermal cut-out for added protection

The revolutionary and patented CAT™ (Cross Air Technology) system applies the stimulus directly to the sensor in the most efficient way possible - horizontally.
In the case of heat detectors testing, CAT™:

Reduces test times dramatically
Set detectors into alarm more rapidly than any other safe technique.
Uses the minimum power necessary, thereby extending battery life
Suits rate of rise, fixed temperature and combination detectors up to 90°C / 194°F
Minimises the possiblity of heat damage to the plastic of the detector

The SOLO 461 incorporates a 'reference platform', which ensures that the 'beam' of heated air is lined up correctly with the sensor, whatever size and shape of detector.
Under the control of a microprocessor, blown air is heated by the element just before exiting the duct. The narrow opening focuses the heat into a 'beam'.
Because the hot 'beam' of air is targeted directly at the sensor, substantial amounts of energy and time are saved. This design allows many more tests per Battery Baton™ than ever before.

The SOLO 461 provides a solution for testing heat detectors that is second to none. Its patented design is convenience itself, whilst offering the fatest functional test possible in the safest and most controlled way.case of heat detectors testing, CAT™:

Heat is directed straight at the dectector sensor
Sets 95% of all spot/point heat detector types into alarm within seconds
Test detectors up to 9m/30ft with SOLO universal access poles
Uses same Battery Baton™ and charger as previous model.
Infra-red beam is broken by detector to activate heat generation.
Microprocessor control maintains constant heat and airflow with variations in battery voltage.
Goes into standby after 120 seconds of use of protection
Switches off completely after 5 minutes in standby for further protection.
Supplied with 2 Battery Batons™ and fast charger (operates from 110/120,220/240V AC supply or 12 V DC car battery)
