Trotec flue gas chamber

A cost-efficient flue gas alternative for flat roof leak detection is the use of a flue gas chamber.

Revealing smoke signals

If laying a ring line or sufficiently wetting the waterproofing membrane is too time-consuming or not possible, the smoke signal method can be used. The process is characterized by its simplicity and speed of application.

The removable firing basket allows better cleaning of the complete chamber.

A permanent chamber seal is ensured with the aid of the readjustable sealing cover.

Here, the special fumes are generated by a flue gas cartridge inserted in the flue gas chamber's cartridge container and then blown into the insulation layer.

The flue gas cartridges, which are available as accessories, produce a dense white


An inexpensive alternative for leak detection on flat roofs is the Trotec smoke chamber.

When the white smoke rises, the leakage point is quickly found. With a fog and flue gas simulation, leak tests can be carried out quickly and with pinpoint accuracy.

In the field of optical leak testing, the flue gas method, among others, is popular - especially when it comes to testing flat roofs. The principle is simple: artificial fog and flue gas rise straight up and find the fastest way.

In the case of a leaking flat roof, which is lined with special plastic membranes, damaged areas are quickly discovered.

This is because the smoke escapes through every leak, no matter how small, and is quickly and clearly visible to the inspector.
