Frequently Asked Questions
What is a cold sparks machine?
A cold sparks machine is a type of special effects equipment that creates a dazzling display of sparks that are safe to touch and don't carry the same fire risks as traditional pyrotechnics. Machines like the IGL-SP1700W use non-pyrotechnic methods, typically electromagnetic heating and other controlled mechanisms, to ignite titanium-based powders, creating a stunning visual effect that resembles fireworks but without the intense heat.
Yes, cold sparks are considered safe, especially when compared to traditional fireworks. Cold sparks machines, such as the IGL-SP1700W, generate sparks that are cool enough to touch, minimizing the risk of burns and fires. It's important to use them as directed and with the recommended safety measures in place.
Are cold sparklers safe indoors?
Cold sparklers are designed to be safe for indoor use. They produce a low-heat spark effect that significantly reduces the risk of ignition of surrounding materials. Machines like the IGL-SP1700W are engineered with safety in mind, allowing for their use in a variety of indoor settings without the typical concerns associated with traditional pyrotechnics.
How long does cold spark powder last?
The duration that cold spark powder lasts can vary depending on the machine's setting and the desired effect. For instance, the IGL-SP1700W can carry 500 grams of special consumable powder that, depending on the spray height and intensity, can last for several minutes of continuous use. It's always recommended to follow the manufacturer's guidelines for specific usage times.
Are cold spark machines a fire hazard?
Cold spark machines are designed to minimize fire hazards. They produce sparks at a temperature that typically doesn't ignite combustible materials. The IGL-SP1700W, for example, has built-in safety features and uses a specific type of spark powder to ensure a safe experience when the device is used correctly.
Do cold sparks leave residue?
Cold sparks may leave a minimal residue that is generally a non-flammable, biodegradable powder. This residue is usually easy to clean up and doesn't cause damage to surfaces. For machines like the IGL-SP1700W, following proper operating instructions will ensure that residue is kept to a minimum.
Do cold spark machines leave a mess?
Cold spark machines, when operated properly, should not leave a significant mess. The residue left behind is typically a small amount of powder that can be swept or vacuumed up with ease. The IGL-SP1700W is designed to focus the sparks upward, reducing the spread of any residue.
Do cold spark machines set off fire alarms?
Cold spark machines generally do not produce smoke or heat that would trigger a standard fire alarm. However, it's advisable to check with your venue and test before an event, as the density of the sparks could potentially affect highly sensitive smoke detectors.
How much cold spark powder to use?
The amount of cold spark powder to use will depend on the specific model of the cold sparks machine and the desired duration and intensity of the effect. For example, the IGL-SP1700W has a capacity for 500 grams of powder, which is suitable for a moderate duration show. Always refer to the manufacturer's instructions for the recommended amount.
Can sparks catch things on fire?
Traditional sparks can certainly catch things on fire, but the sparks produced by cold spark machines like the IGL-SP1700W are designed not to. They emit sparks at a much lower temperature, reducing the risk of combustion and making them safe for use around people and in various venues.
What are cold fireworks made of?
Cold fireworks are typically made using a titanium alloy powder that ignites to create the spark effect. This material is chosen for its ability to create bright sparks without the high heat of traditional fireworks, making them suitable for use where traditional pyrotechnics are too risky.
Can an electric spark start a fire?
In general, an electric spark can start a fire if it comes into contact with flammable materials and there is sufficient heat. However, the electric spark used to initiate the effect in cold sparks machines, such as the IGL-SP1700W, is carefully controlled to prevent this, ensuring the sparks generated are cool and do not have the same ignition potential as an uncontrolled electric spark.
