FAQs - Cold Spark Machine Rental
A cold spark machine, also known as a cold spark fountain or a cold spark generator, is a type of pyrotechnic device that produces a spark-like effect using metal particles instead of traditional pyrotechnic compounds. The sparks produced by a cold spark machine are generally cooler and less intense than those produced by traditional pyrotechnics, making them suitable for use in indoor or close-proximity settings. They are commonly used in entertainment and event production, such as music concerts, theatrical performances, and special effects.
The sparks interact with a fan and heating element in order to ignite the effect at a cool 62 degrees!
Cold spark machines are generally considered safe to use, as the sparks they produce are generally cooler and less intense than those produced by traditional pyrotechnics. However, as with any pyrotechnic device, there are some risks associated with their use.
Typically, cold sparks can last about a minute to two minutes per run time. The total run time can vary by the amount of powder we use, so it can essentially go on for as long as you would like! We fill the machines to last 5 minutes in total, however the machines CANNOT run for that time straight. We recommend that you use them in bursts. 10-30 seconds is ideal.
