PYROCLOCK® is a system designed for quick assembly of timed pyrotechnic chains.

 PYROCLOCK® has 3 components: the “Fuse-holder”, the “Quickmatch-stopper” and the “time-delay element”.

 The timed pyrotechnic chain is assembled by inserting the quickmatch of the shell in the slot of the male end of

 the fuse-holder and then mating it to the femal end of the next delay fuse-holder. This process is repeated to

 achieve the desired effect.

 The electric igniter or quickmatch link is connected via the “quickmatch-stpper”.

 Longer time delays can be achieved by connecting individual PYROCLOCK® fuse holders end-to-end.

DESCRIPTION

  Pyroclock is a pyrotechnical device used to transmit a flame, with a set delay, to another delay and/or to a 

  quick match for the ignition of a firework.

 

  Pyroclocks function as basic modules that can be joined in various combinations to build up more complex

  transmission systems (pyric chains).

 

  By comparison with traditional fuses, they offer numerous advantages, including:

  • excellent functional reliability for protection of the pyric delay;

  • excellent delay precision;

  • ease of use: the manual labour required to make connections is minimal and can be performed by non-specialists following simple instructions;

  • versatility of use: pyric chains can be assembled to suit the most diverse needs by combining different delay types

  • water resistent.

  Pyroclock is available in eight different types according to the delay provided. These are:

Every delay has its own color
   
  Pyroclock® is delivered with the delay already inserted  

INSTRUCTIONS FOR ASSEMBLY

 

To join 2 Pyroclocks together, insert the smaller end of one device into the larger end of another until you feel the click that signals a successful connection.

At this point, if the connection has been made correctly, two small teeth, one on the external surface of the smaller diameter and the other on the internal surface of the larger diameter, fit together to ensure a stable connection.

Whenever you want to include a quick match (for the ignition of a firework) in the pyric chain between two Pyroclocks, the quick match should be positioned in the slot in the smaller end of the Pyroclock.

Care should be taken to line up this slot with the one (of the two) on the larger end of the other Pyroclock opposite the hole that acts as a vent for combustion gas. Then procede by joining the two Pyroclocks as described above. When the connection is made correctly, the quick match will be fixed in position.

The dimensions of Pyroclock have been specifically calculated to ensure perfect continuity in pyric chains

  consisting of several modules joined together.

  This means that the distance between two adjoining delay fuses in two joined Pyroclocks is always less than the

  length of the flame (³ 5 cm) that these generate, thus eliminating any risk of misfire.

  If you need to extend the distance between quick matches connected to fireworks in the pyric chain, for example

  with large-calibre fireworks, this can be done using quick match extensions of the appropriate length, if necessary

  inserted in empty fuseholders, to transfer a flame between two Pyroclocks.

  In this case the quick match extensions should be fixed in the ends of the relevant Pyroclocks using

  quick-match stoppers provided for this purpose.

 

Link between 2 Pyroclock chains

 

The “quick-match stopper” is a plastic device that can be folded over a quick match complete with sheathing to

  form a cylinder. It can then be inserted into any of the openings on Pyroclockâ. The quick match will be fixed in a

  secure connection with the Pyroclock.
