Superior Smoke Candles are NOT Explosive, and are NON-Pyrotechnic, but they generate a LOT of smoke, very quickly. Always use the LEAST amount of Smoke that will get the job done.  Start with less, and if necessary then try again with more.

Please note the Smoke output of our products:

  • 1A  =  4,000 cubic feet of Smoke in about 30 seconds.
  • 2B  =  8,000 cubic feet of Smoke in aboumt 1 minute.
  • 3C  =  40,000 cubic feet of Smoke in about 3 minutes.
  • W3C  =  40,000 cubic feet of Smoke in about 3 minutes – double wick to daisy-chain for longer smoke time.


Normal usage for Leak Testing applications is about 1 cubic foot of smoke per cubic foot of volume to be tested, up to double that concentration if needed.  Note that all Leak Testing requires a flow of air (typically from a fan) to carry the smoke throughout the entire system being tested. Applications for Air Flow Visualization would typically be a lower concentration, as too much smoke obscures the flow pattern and results in an ineffective test.  Fire Training applications with full turnout gear and SCBA may use higher concentrations at the discretion of the Training Officer.  These are just a few general guidelines – there are MANY applications for Superior Smoke, and all of them have many variables.  If you do not fully understand how to use smoke for your application, or have any questions about how to safely conduct an effective test, please contact Superior Signal for guidance.
