PYROMECHANICS

Although in comparison a relatively small but nonetheless important product range has been developed and produced during the last 4 decades. Various civil industries use our customised products and technological solutions to close capability gaps. These are primarily remotely controlled gas-pressure generators to activate mechanical systems such as fire extinguishing systems, cable cutters and opening roofs. Mechanical and electric ignition systems provide a reliable means to ignite a variety of products including pyrotechnic compositions and the ignition of primary explosives. Smoke generators to measure the airflow and thus the effectiveness of air-conditioning systems is another area of expertise.

Gas pressure generators​

Gas Generator

Gas Generator

Pyrotechnic gas generators deliver upon initiation a predetermined gas pressure and thus arrange for an actuation to move mechanical elements such as e.g. pistons. In the majority of cases they are remotely and electrically ignited. The build-up of gas pressure is instantaneous.

The generators consist of nickel plated brass casings and have a screw thread at the front end through which a connection to the mechanical element will be achieved. Electric wiring will deliver the necessary electric power for the ignition of the gas generator. The generators have three wires allowing the casing to be earthed if necessary.

Depending on requirements the gas pressure generators can be connected in series.
