  • Heroes in Training

    smoke-ballMost people recognize smoke machines for the atmosphere they lend to stage performances and Hollywood movies. Although fog generators come in handy for entertainment purposes, they can also help save lives. Emergency rescue workers implement highly realistic fog into their training exercises. By practicing in a safe environment, firefighters and paramedics prepare themselves for the real thing.

    Training smoke is designed to be emitted by a professional-quality smoke machine. Emergency workers can select between oil- and water-based smoke depending on the intensity and duration desired. This realistic smoke allows officials to perform their jobs with increased assurance and effectiveness.

  • Get the Party Started


    DJs wouldn’t arrive at a party without their music collection, and it would be just as silly to show up withouta a fog machine. Dancers know it’s time to do their thing once the smoke billows out onto the floor and the lights are turned down low. Without that crucial cue, a DJ could end up with a lot of lackadaisical wallflowers on his hands.

    By maintaining a steady supply of DJ fog, mix masters of any skill level can at least be assured that the party doesn’t go up in smoke. When it comes down to it, DJs should be able to focus their attention on the night’s track list. A fog machine will take care of the ambience, and a solid selection of tunes should do the rest.

  • A History of Fog Machine Usage

    fogmachineIn various Hollywood movies, live theater productions, and even music videos, fog machines are a staple for creating a particular hazy, alluring, or chilling atmosphere. To that end, a fog machine is capable of emitting a vapor that looks similar to fog or perhaps even smoke. Depending on the type of machine, they can be fueled by water and glycol or dry ice. It simply depends on the desired effect from the use of the machine.

    While fog machines used to be used exclusively by professionals, they have been greatly reduced in price since the mid 2000s. This means the use of fog machines in the private sector has been greatly increased. As such, they are common now in residential haunted houses or other various Halloween displays. On the professional front, firefighters also use fog machines to train. A fog machine, after all, accurately simulates the poor visibility that will be confronted in some burning buildings.

  • Different Kinds of Synthetic Fog

    juiceIf you’re interested in some particularly chilling or theatrical effects, it’s likely that you’ve considered investing in a fog machine. Whether you’re interested in making your haunted house more realistic or you want to add some flare to your latest drama production, there are many different kinds of synthetic fogs that you can invest in. It all just depends on the type of fog fluid that you choose to use.

    The first major kind is a medium density, and it’s ideal for indoor use. Its primary use is enhancing various lighting effects. Another type of fog fluid would create a long lasting fog. This is best used in all outdoor situations, as the wind won’t immediately cause the fog to dissipate. Another major version is essentially the opposite, and this is fog that dissipates very quickly. This is ideal for plays, as the fog can have its immediate effect, but it won’t linger to impinge on subsequent scenes in the play.

    What are some the uses of a fog machine?   The best known use is to create spooky effects in plays and movies.  Can you imagine a Dracula movie without the fog?  Fog machines are also frequently used in Halloween displays such as haunted houses or forests.

    Smoke effects are also useful for industrial purposes, especially automobile manufactures for visualizing the flow of air, such as over a surface of an automobile in a wind tunnel or testing filters in air conditioning.
