First Poofs

My Electronic Controlled Flame Effects class did their first poofing last night, testing with compressed air. I got very nervous when I heard the accumulator come up to pressure the first time. All those untested components under all that pressure!

It went fine. I’ll tell you this much, there are no cobwebs on the ceiling of the Kinetics lab any more! A few blasts from a 1/2″ solenoid valve connected to a 5 gallon accumulator solved that problem!

Next week there promises to be fire.
