Equinox Spark Stream
The Equinox Spark Stream is a unique type of spark machine that projects cold sparks that will not catch fire. The system contains no explosive content making it perfect for any indoor or outdoor event from fashion shows and concerts to corporate events. The Equinox Spark Stream operates at much cooler temperatures then traditional pyrotechnics by heating specially formulated granules and projecting them into the air. The sparks produced are non-flammable and non-hazardous.

Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
How safe is the machine?
The Spark Stream has been built to eliminate the fire risks that come with normal pyrotechnics.
No large safety or exclusion zones are required as the heated granules cool instantly when they come in contact with the air and are safe to touch. All of the materials are completely non-hazardous.
How does it work?
The effect is simply created by heating the titanium alloy granules which are then blown from the spark outlet opening on the top of the unit to create a fountain of sparks. The height and intensity of the sparks can be adjusted via the wireless remote or a DMX controller using a 5-pin DMX cable. Each unit requires just 1 DMX channel for operation so it can easily be combined with any other lighting or sound effects which are being controlled from your DMX desk.
Where can I use the Spark Stream?
The effect has been designed for indoor use as it is extremely safe and does not present a fire risk,
meaning that it can be safely used in practically any venue. The unit can be used outdoors, however it must be kept completely dry. If any moisture or rain gets into the unit the powder will begin to clog and the internal mechanisms may become damaged.
Is there any fallout/residue?
During operation the Spark Stream unit does produce a small amount of dust from the granules that
generate the sparks. This dust can easily be swept or blown away. Certain surfaces such as carpets,
soft furnishings or delicate surfaces may not be suitable. If there is any uncertainty about the suitability of the surface this machine should not be used.
How quick is setup and installation?
Multiple units can be set up extremely quickly and linked via DMX and up to 4 via power input/outputs. Once the powder has been poured into the machine and the unit is powered on, a heating sequence needs to be enabled to bring the element inside the unit up to the required temperature, this takes 8 minutes. Once the element has reached the required temperature the units are ready for use.
