First set of portable hot smoke generator 500 KW

The OSIS project aims at simulating an underground fire without the drawbacks of classical tools: risks due to real fire, dirtiness of real smoke, no-repeatability of real fires.

Portable generators have been within the OSIS project which can be easily adapted for instance in concourse, mines, and road tunnels. Two generators using forced ventilation were built for a total of 500 kW. The on-site tools form a unique mean to test installation before they are opened, to check the design and the tuning of the equipment. In contrast with tests using real fires, the temperature and electrical power of OSIS tools have been chosen not to damage usual equipment in tunnel, which have been confirmed by the various tests that have already been carried out.
