Fog/Smoke Machines - Setting off Smoke Alarm
We just picked up an account to do maintenance of a nightclub, approx 4200 sq ft., three package units. Our duct guys are modifying the supply to hit more of the dancefloor.
Club has been in operation only since 9/10, so has not been thru a S. Texas summer yet.
Don't know, but suspect fog machines been op for a while. Issue seems to be the units trip off line by the smoke alarm, and owner has been going up and cycling the disconnects when this occurrs.
Have a number of things to address here, but has anyone had experience with such a scenario? I have to look up the fog machine specifics, I now nothing about them, but thought they ran on CO2 or water vapor. On the surface, doesn't make sense "fog" would set off smoke alarms?
(will need the model #'s, but units are Carrier, Weathermaster about 5 years old and were cruising when I did a trouble call @ 130am this morning)
