Important Safety Information
WARNING!
READ ALL OPERATING MANUALS
BEFORE OPERATION OF EQUIPMENT
GENERAL SAFETY INFORMATION
Machine Operation
• Always wear protective clothing and safety glasses when operating machinery.
• Never service or repair Power Smoker while running. Allow engine to cool.
• Whenever fueling the Power Smoker, shut off engine and do not smoke.
• Periodically inspect system components. Perform routine maintenance as required.
• Do not operate a gasoline engine in an enclosed area. Be sure the area is well ventilated.
SAFETY FIRST!
Even though you are using laboratory tested safe LiquiSmoke, gases from the sewer line may not be safe. Some of these gases
can be very dangerous causing anything from minor health symptoms to death. The smoke is a visual indicator that you
should evacuate the area immediately. If smoke is detected in a building, follow these procedures;
•
•
•
•
If possible, open all doors and windows and evacuate immediately.
Install a fan in a window or door to evacuate the smoke.
Find a licensed plumber to fix the leak.
Once the repair has been made, recheck the system using Hurco’s Power Smoker 2.
You should not have to enter a manhole when smoke testing. However, if you find it necessary to enter the manhole to insert a
plug or set up a by-pass, you must follow all proper confined space entry techniques. Refer to OSHA’s 1910.146 confined space
regulation.
For more information concerning confined space entry, go to the Center for Disease Control / NIOSH at http://www.cdc.gov/
NIOSH/ then type “confined space” in the search box.

Operating Instructions
Power Smoker Setup for Sewer Systems
Setting up your Power Smoker for smoke testing a sewer
system involves some planning. The most important part
of any smoke testing program is PUBLIC AWARENESS. This
should never be taken for granted. There will certainly be
people with health concerns and businesses that cannot
have business interrupted. Because it is natural to panic
whenever you see smoke, notification and awareness will
help alleviate that anxiety. Another major concern is the
possible presence of dangerous sewer gases traveling with
the smoke. When smoke testing, it should not be necessary to enter a manhole. However, before you ever enter a
confined space, such as a manhole, you must follow safe
confined space entry techniques. Refer to OSHA’s 1910.146
regulation and never enter a manhole until it has been thoroughly tested using high quality, calibrated gas detection
equipment. Always keep a gas monitor with you at all times.
The environment in a manhole can change rapidly.
Public Awareness
Public Service Announcements, (PSA), are the best way
to notify citizens of your intentions. These PSA’s can be
delivered in a number of different ways:
• Television and Radio Announcements
• Newspapers
• Direct Mail
• Door Hangers
Many television stations, radio stations and newspapers will
carry these advertisements for a small fee and sometimes for
no fee at all.
All Public Service Announcements need to be timed so that
the home or business owner does not forget the day you
will be performing this activity. A good practice would be
to send a letter to each home and business owner at least
two weeks in advance of your smoke testing activities. That
should then be followed by the Newspaper, Radio and
Television announcements each day during the week prior
to the test. You can also visit the neighborhood and put
door hangers on each home or business. When using door
hangers, be sure to put one on every door. You never know
what door is used by the occupant.
Hurco has created some of these PSA materials that
are free to use providing you are using our equipment
and our LiquiSmoke. These materials are very specific
to our products and you can create confusion for your
citizens when not using Hurco products. Go to the Hurco
website at www.gethurco.com to download any of these
announcements:
• Television Commercial
• Radio Commercial
• Newspaper advertisement
• Direct mail form letter
• Door hanger
Hurco has also created a website directed at the citizens of
your community. That website is www.smoketesting.com.

This website will answer frequently asked questions and give
each business and homeowner a list of things they can do
to prepare for the smoke test. You are welcome to use this
website or to link it to your website. Hurco also has a video
on smoke testing that can be viewed or downloaded at our
website at www.gethurco.com.
Preparing for Smoke Testing
PREPARING MAPS
It is important to plan your smoke testing activities carefully.
You will want to prepare maps of the area to be tested. These
maps should identify:
• The direction of sewer flow
• The size of the sewer mains
• The manholes to be used for setting up the Power
•
•
•
•
•
Smoker
Intersections or busy roadways to avoid
Traffic control when necessary
Home or business owners with special concerns
Residents with health concerns
Any other items of concern can also be noted
SETTING UP THE CREW
Two people are all that is required for a smoke testing program.
These people should be trained in the proper procedures of
smoke testing and dealing with confined spaces. There is no
room for errors when doing smoke testing.

Before you start your test
1. Read all warnings on the Power Smoker before
operation.
2. Check oil and gas before starting the Power Smoker.
3. Remove Manhole covers on section to smoke test
and plug pipes and bypass, if necessary, to isolate the
section being tested. It should not be necessary to plug
pipes unless the smoke going beyond the test area is of
concern.
1-800-888-1436
Operating Instructions
4. Replace all manhole covers except the manhole where
the Power Smoker will be located.
5. Place Power Smoker on manhole.
6. Prepare the LiquiSmoke Tank.
a. To relieve pressure from the tank before filling, rotate
the small valve to the right slowly until fully open.
Leave relief valve open until all pressure is relieved.
The canister is now safe to open. Never open the
canister without first releasing pressure.
b. Put one gallon of LiquiSmoke in the LiquiSmoke
pressure tank
c. Place pump back into tank and turn clockwise until
tight.
d. Disengage the pump handle by turning it ¼ turn
and pump tank until firm. Do not apply too much
pressure to the pump handle as it will damage the
pump cartridge. Note: Putting more than one gallon
in this container will cause you to make several trips
back to the Power Smoker to keep the LiquiSmoke
under pressure. By leaving the tank half full, you will
have an adequate amount of pressure to last the
entire test. Warning: The LiquiSmoke pressure tank
is now under pressure and DANGEROUS. Always
wear eye protection when using this container.
WARNING! Smoke testing can be dangerous. Do not use
in areas where there are volatile gases. Do not allow a
person in any manholes while the smoke test is being
conducted.
WARNING! Using any liquid product to produce smoke
other than Hurco’s LiquiSmoke can cause damage to the
Power Smoker, voiding any warranty. Also, some of these
liquids can start on fire and become an explosion hazard.
WARNING! Power Smoker is not designed to be use with
zinc chloride smoke bombs. Not only are these smoke
bombs corrosive to the working components of the
Power Smoker, they can cause serious damage to the
engine.
personnel as a reminder.
4. Identify a two block section to be tested.
5. Go to each house or business where there are health
concerns. These people should know to evacuate
immediately when seeing smoke or stay out of the
building during the test. You can do an inspection
for these people before they return to their home or
business.
6. Set the Power Smoker on the manhole, connect the
LiquiSmoke tank and start the engine.
7. Let the engine warm for a few minutes then slowly open
the LiquiSmoke valve about 1/16 to 1/4 turn. This can vary
and should be determined prior to doing you project.
8. Watch for smoke coming from vents on top of buildings
before starting your inspection.
9. Let the Power Smoker run continuously producing smoke
until the inspection is complete for optimum results.
10.On completion of your inspection, turn the LiquiSmoke
off. Let the engine run for a short time to ensure that all
the smoke fluid has been burned out of the Super Jet
Smoke Generator.
Note: To increase the life of your Super Jet Smoke Generator,
you may occasionally use a good quality brake parts cleaner
to help clean any build up in the coil system. Simply disconnect the LiquiSmoke tank from the Power Smoker, open the
LiquiSmoke valve, and spray a small amount of the brake
parts cleaner in the end. The brake parts cleaner will burn
out of the Super Jet when the engine is started.
Note: Power Smoker will produce approximately 3 hours of
smoke from one gallon of LiquiSmoke. It should take you
about 20 minutes to inspect a 2 block area or about 800 feet.
Each gallon of LiquiSmoke should produce enough smoke to
test about 7,200 feet of pipe. The condition and size of the
pipe and the number of sewer laterals will have an effect on
the exact number of feet that can be tested with one gallon
of LiquiSmoke.
WARNING! NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational
Safety and Health) says: If zinc chloride smoke
generating devices are used to generate dense clouds,
the smoke should be considered hazardous and
participants who enter the smoke should wear a selfcontained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Practices like
“buddy breathing” should not be conducted in these
dense smoke clouds. If individuals experience any
breathing difficulties, they should receive medical
evaluation as soon as possible. Hurco does not allow
the use of zinc chloride smoke bombs with any Power
Smoker product.
Procedures for Smoke Testing
1. The day before the test, notify Police and Fire Department
personnel of your activities. There will be no doubt that
someone will see your smoke and call for help.
2. Go to each house or business to be tested and leave a
door hanger or letter of your activities for the next day.
3. On the day of the test, call Police and Fire Department

Operating Instructions
Follow these steps when inspecting for sewer leaks:
1. Worker #1 will walk down one side of the street, moving
one block and looking carefully around each house or
business. Worker #1 will then cross the street, moving two
blocks in the opposite direction and continue looking
around each house and business. At the end of that two
block section, Worker #1 will cross the street, moving one
block back towards the Power Smoker.
2. Worker # 2 will repeat this procedure moving in the
opposite direction. This method of inspection will give
Worker # 1 and 2 the opportunity to identify leaks that
the other may have missed. Sometimes it takes a long
time before smoke exits the ground and this will assure
no leaks are missed.
idea to take a picture of the building with a focus on the
address. These pictures will give you some idea of how
bad the leak is and where it is when you prepare your
final report.
3. Take a measurement from a stationary object that
will not be moved anytime soon. It is best to take 2 or
3 measurements to triangulate the leak. Mark these
measurements on your map. Note: You may want to come
back after your smoke test to take these measurements
in order to save time, but you should get the pictures
while the smoke is coming out.
4. As an option, you may take a GPS reading on the leak.
5. Take notes while the test is fresh in your mind. Do not
wait until you get back to the office.
Identifying leaks and recording
data
While you are doing your inspection, you should be aware
that sewer lines can run anywhere so a thorough inspection
around buildings is necessary. Sometimes these leaks will emit
very small amounts of smoke, barely visible without careful
inspection. Look under bushes, next to building foundations
and even peer into windows to see if smoke is getting into
the building. There could be a plumbing problem in the
building that is causing the smoke to enter or the building
owner may have illegally connected a sump pump to the
plumbing system. Look at drain spouts on building to see if
there is an illegal connection. When you identify a leak, take
these steps:
1. Mark the leak with a flag.
2. Videotape or take a digital picture of the leak. It is a good

Maintaining
Installing Power Smoker Impeller
Installing the impeller on your Power Smoker is not difficult but
must be done as outlined below. A cracked impeller is not covered
under our warranty, so it is important to follow each step carefully.
For help repairing your Power Smoker or ordering parts, call our
office at 1-800-888-1436.
Follow these steps to remove an impeller:
1. Drain all gas and oil from the Power Smoker.
2. Turn Power Smoker upside down and remove the expanded
metal guard.
3. Remove the center bolt from the impeller.
4. Remove the three securing bolts from the taper lock bushing.
5. Reinstall two of the bolts into the threaded holes in the taper
lock bushing.
6. Slowly and evenly tighten bolts until taper lock bushing
separates from the impeller.
7. Do not use torque instructions on the box provided with the
taper lock bushing. These instructions are for installing a cast
iron pulley on an engine shaft. This is too much torque for the
Power Smoker impeller. Recommended torque for the taper
lock bushing when used with the Power Smoker impeller
is 10 ft. lbs of torque. This is a situation where tighter is not
better. Over tightening of the taper lock bushing will break the
impeller which is not covered under warranty.
8. CAUTION: Do not attempt to tighten the collar of the taper
lock bushing tight against the impeller. This will break the
impeller which is not covered under warranty. There should be
about 1/8” to 1/4” space between the collar of the taper lock
bushing and the impeller when installed correctly.
9. Install center washers into the taper lock bushing to fill gap
from end of engine shaft to the face of the taper lock bushing.
Install center bolt. Remember, you must use the Loc-Tite 609
adhesive on all contact surfaces and on all bolts.
10.Install protective expanded metal screen.
7. Remove Impeller and taper lock bushing.
11.Let Ripcord sit for 24 hours before using to allow the Loc-Tite
609 to cure.
Note: The Power Smoker impeller was installed using Loc-Tite 609
adhesive. It may be necessary to warm the taper lock bushing to
help release this adhesive. Do not apply too much heat.
12.Put oil and gas in engine.
Follow these steps to install an impeller:
1. Make sure engine shaft is clean and the bore on the taper lock
bushing is clean. Using a quality brake parts cleaner will make
this much easier. Remove any burrs or nicks from all metal
parts.
2. Align holes of taper lock bushing with the threaded holes in
the impeller. The tapeer lock bushing is tapered and must
align into the impeller so the taper in the impeller matches the
taper of the taper lock bushing.
3. Be sure to align the keyway on the motor shaft with the black
line on the impeller. This black line is a balance mark and it is
critical to have it in line with the keyway to prevent vibration.
4. Use Loc-Tite 609 on engine shaft, the inside and outside of the
taper lock bushing and on all bolts. Loc-Tite 609 is the only
acceptable adhesive. Using another adhesive may cause a
failure of the impeller.
5. When the impeller and bushing are properly placed on the
engine shaft, the shaft should be approximately 1/8” to 1/4”
inside the bushing. You can use a thick piece of cardboard as
a gauge on the distance to hold the impeller away from the
engine mounting support brackets.
6. Gradually and evenly tighten the three taper lock bushing
bolts by turning 1/4 turn at a time and rotating to the next
bolt. Note: The taper lock bushing must be installed evenly
or it could damage the impeller. DO NOT USE AN IMPACT
WRENCH! All tightening must be done by hand. Special bolts
were shipped with your impeller. Do not attempt to use bolts
other than those supplied because they could cause damage
to the impeller. Damage caused during installation is not
covered under warranty.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
Question: Why is my Power Smoker spitting out too much LiquiSmoke?
Answer: The valve on the Power Smoker that controls the flow of the LiquiSmoke is open too far. This will allow too much fluid
to enter the Smoke Generator causing it to cool and not properly atomize the LiquiSmoke. It is advisable to practice with the
Power Smoker to determine the exact position of the flow control valve to produce the maximum smoke with little wasted
LiquiSmoke prior to use on a job. A small amount of fluid emitting with the smoke is normal.
Question: Why isn’t my Power Smoker producing dense smoke?
Answer: The LiquiSmoke flow control valve is open too far causing the smoke generator to cool. Close valve and allow excess
LiquiSmoke to burn off. Now open the valve slowly until you reach maximum smoke generation. This will only take a fraction of
a turn on the LiquiSmoke flow control valve.
