The Lycomaster uses only compressed air and lycopodium, the spores of a plant. A solenoid valve is used to blow compressed air into an especially designed cyclone chamber. The air is mixed with the optimal quantity lycopodium dust inside the chamber, and special jets control the flow into a metal firebox. The mixture is safely ignited by a high-voltage electric arc to form a fascinating, completely non-toxic flame with especially beautiful lines. Ideal for effects where gas flame columns cannot be used
