These DMX-compatible flame shooters run off gas canisters. Creates a plume of flame. Not recommended for indoor use.
One can of fuel oil is good for approximately 50 2-second long blasts. That's 100 1-second blasts, 200 .5-second blasts and so on! The shorter the blast you program the longer each can will last!
Control with DMX or use our PicoDMX controller and any one of our prop triggers.
When triggered with the PicoDMX the flame blaster does not fire- DMX address needs to be 2. That should be dip switch for 2 down and all others up.
- Make sure you are using 2 channels of dmx as per the video here
- Make sure the "momentary" option is NOT selected in Director – We have experienced issues trying to use this feature, it would result in the machine only ever producing short bursts as you describe.
- You may need to change the position of the igniter physically. If it is too centered over the solenoid the flame oil can actually douse the spark and cause the flame not to ignite. Remove fuel for safety and then adjust the igniter so it is not directly over the valve (you can just bend it out of the way a bit)
How high is the flame?The flame can reach a maximum height of about 15 feet. But even the slightest wind effects it greatly and will bring it down to only a few feet.
What are the measurements of the flame blaster and do you recommend for outdoor weather for Halloween prop purpose?22” high x 10” wide at widest point. 9pounds / 4oz. Must be kept free from moisture.
