Cold spark machines are special effects devices that create a fountain of sparks without heat or flame. It uses titanium or zirconium powder, compressed air, and electricity to make a shower of bright, glittering sparks up to meters high.

Ti Powder For Cold Spark Machine

Alloys bring the temperature down to about 1100°F while still preventing burning. This lets the particles sparkle brightly without igniting.

On average, one bag of powder lasts about 10-15 minutes of sparks. You’ll need to refill the consumables as usage time depends on the spark height and volume you require. You should always use the powder type recommended by the manufacturer for optimal performance and safety.
