GERMOS smoke generators are characterized by the uniformity in smoke taste and color. This ensures safe and reliable reproducibility. For the refining of a wide variety of products we are offering different smoking processes.

GERMOS Vapour-Smoke Generator

The R54, which has been established on the market for many years, has been replaced by the R60 series. Technical optimizations guarantee stable smoke quality, longevity and an easy application. Especially in industrial applications, the R60 has proven itself as a true workhorse. The humid smoke penetrates deeply into the product enabling an intense smoke taste and an uniform colour.

Germos Smoke Gen 1

The most important advantages at a glance:

  • short smoking times
  • reduced loss of weight
  • very aromatic smoke flavour
  • uniform and stable smoke colour which will not fade-off when cooling or showering
  • dark smoke colours according to customers requirements
  • very small quantities of destructive substances because of low smoke generating temperatures
  • full smoke capacity within seconds
  • woodchips transport and precise portioning via stainless steel worm-gear
  • energy saving mode during non-operation times
  • due to the use of superheated water steam, there is no open flame in the smoke generator. Therefore, the smoke generator is not potentially explosive when used as intended (IBExU certificate).

NESS Friction Smoke Generator

NESS smoke generators all work according to the same principle: only the quantity of smoke actually needed is generated to achieve the desired result. If the closed Circo-Smoke-System® is used, the consumption of smoking material can be reduced by up to 80 percent (compared to open systems). The result: less costs for smoking material, less pollution of the system and thus less cleaning efforts.

In this process, the smoke is generated by the friction of a wooden stick on a rotating body. A proven way to generate smoke, which is also suitable for cold smoke without cooling and which also has the following advantages:

  • generation of smoke at the lowest smoke generation temperature
  • no creation of carcinogenic substances (or only minimum amounts)
  • continuous adjustment of friction pressure with pneumatic feed of the pieces of timber for exact dosing of smoke quantity and density
  • uniform smoke density and quantity of smoke per unit of time for precise determination of the smoke colour over the smoking time with optimized air flow
  • smoke generation without waiting or pre-selection time
  • easy to use and to maintain
  • easy insertion of the pieces of timbers. Application of large format pieces of timber up to 8 x 8 x 100 cm for multiple batches without changing the wood pieces.
  • as an option: magazine to load 4 pieces of timber for longer duration smoking processes

    NESS Sawdust Smoke Generator

    NESS smoke generators all work on the same principle: only the quantity of smoke actually needed is generated to achieve the desired result. If the closed Circo-Smoke-System® is used, the consumption of smoking material can be reduced by up to 80 percent (compared to open systems). The result: less costs for smoking material, less pollution of the system and thus less cleaning efforts.

    The smouldering of sawdust is the traditional method of producing smoke. Of course, this procedure also has its very specific advantages. Due to the rather soft mechanical processes inside, only a low power drive is necessary and the system runs very quietly. Sawdust is available practically everywhere with no effort and can be combined into individual chip mixtures to achieve very individual flavours.

  • low smoke generation temperature by means of special air supply at the smouldering plate
  • if flamable gases are generated, these are reduced to absolutely harmless residual quantities already in the smoke generator by a special NESS process
  • simple operation and easily accessible smouldering plate and smoking material container
  • automatic cleaning of the smoke pipes
  • automatic extinguishing system (in case of overtemperature)
  • inspection glass in the door to check the smoke generation
  • using large cylindric storage containers wit flat cottom, no residues will remain and there will be compression oft he smoking material
  • as an option: magazine to load 4 pieces of timber for longer duration smoking processes
