Hi Bernhard,
That is the Saito smoking tank.
I have one in my Hartman tug with a Saito T2DR engine.
There is a coil mounted in the end of the boiler where the heat exits up the stack.
Steam pressure forces the oil from the tank into the coil and the heat causes it to smoke.
I use 4 parts Johnson's baby oil and 1 part turpentine mixture.
The valve on the tank controls the flow.
I hope this is what you were asking? Dave.

What about the liquid for those party type "fog machines" ? Will hat work in a heated smoke unit? Alos some IC engine smoke units use diesel fuel as the smoke "agent"
