New product alert – The ROM eSTEAM Smoke Generator

Pipe Core has expanded its product offering with the eSTEAM Smoke Generator from ROM bv.

Pipe Core has introduced the ROM bv eSTEAM Smoke Generator to its comprehensive list of products supporting the Australian and New Zealand trenchless industry.

“By placing the hose of the smoke machine in a man-hole outside a building, and letting the smoke run through the sewage system or rainwater discharge pipe, opeartors are easily able to identify breaks and defects if smoke comes through the wrong start or end point,”

Out of the Netherlands, ROM bv has developed a portable and easy to manourver smoke machine that allows operators to easily detect leakages in pipes, tanks and roofs and solve stench problems without excavation and demolition work.

Although the method of smoke testing has been around for decades to help identify breaks, defects and reduce flow and infiltration, the technology around source detection has come a long way.

The eSTEAM is a multi-purpose product, capable of locating tears and holes in the main sewer system, obtaining information about the sewer pipe’s course, detecting illegal connections to municipal sewer, monitoring dry sprinkler lines, air flows in ventilation/air ducts and vents and checking the sealing of chimneys and roofs.

The eSTEAM smoke machine is very easy to use, allowing operators to work faster thanks to the very short warm-up time and automated start-up shutdown procedure.

“By placing the hose of the smoke machine in a man-hole outside a building, and letting the smoke run through the sewage system or rainwater discharge pipe, opeartors are easily able to identify breaks and defects if smoke comes through the wrong start or end point,” Pipe Core drain cleaning specialist Josh Gosling said.

The move on from traditional smoke machines has seen many advancements in technology which ROM has perfected in the eSTEAM.

This smoke generator offers a user-friendly control panel with a clear OLED display, a control glass to allow you to see the smoke production, ideal when the end of the hose is not visible, and an adjustable electric fan which makes it possible to fine-tune the smoke quantity and adapt to every situation.

The smart technology that has been developed ensures a dense, constant and ‘dry’ smoke that is monitored by the heat exchanger’s unique temperature control which ensure the generated smoke is of a constant high quality.

Smart digital control electronics closely monitors the smoke fluid’s evaporation process and adjusts when necessary.

The innovative technology is supported by unique design characteristics.

The unit is robust and impact resistant by design and has a handy handle at an ergonomic height which makes carrying the unit unnecessary. Supported by a set of robust rubber wheels, operators can easily walk up stairs and load and then store easily without leaking.

Further still, the eSTEAM is very economical in consumption. The combination of a unique liquid composition and advanced technology provides extremely low fluid consumption making it a smarter investment compared to traditional smoke generators.

The eSTEAM is in stock at Pipe Core and available for demonstrations.
