About Fog Machines, Bubble Machines & Snow Machines:
Whether you’re performing in the club, bringing your team out of the tunnel or having the neighborhood kids over for a Halloween party or haunted house, atmospheric effects like fog, smoke and bubbles are essential elements of a great vibe. In general, fog or smoke machines utilize a kind of water- or glycerin-based fluid, also called fog juice. The fog juice is heated and vaporized so that it can be introduced into the surrounding air.
There are several types of fog and smoke effects that can be created, depending on the type of fog juice and vaporization technique. The most popular type of fog is a dense, thick, crawling effect that hugs the ground and dissipates as is rises. Hanging fogs are often complemented with lighting and laser effects. Read More...
Important features to consider include the size of the tank, wattage, and portability. Generally speaking, the higher wattage machines will cover a wider area faster than foggers with lower wattage. Depending on use, the machine’s continuous run time, or duty cycle, should match expected usage. For situations where long continuous use is needed, two or more fog machines can be used in alternating sequence to provide a continuous stream of fog.
Some fog machines, especially those designed to be clamped to an elevated truss, also feature an onboard fan to direct the vaporized mixture where it’s needed without displacing the fog fluid tank and heating unit. Guitar Center is proud to carry a wide selection of fog machines to ensure you’ll find the ideal machine for your unique application. Close
