You want to know which kind of technology is the best choice? Here you find all the answers you need to decide.
The term “cryo” means very cold temperature. To
produce fog, normal liquified gases are used. Instead of normal
glycolbased fog (“Disco-Fog”), Cryo-Fog visualizes
only the humidity of the air. This is the same effect, like
opening the bathrooms´ window in winter and fog comes
in or, as another example, like breathing out “clouds” in
cold air. Since Cryo-Fog doesn’t bring in any humidity
into the room-air, there is no condensity on walls or floors.
The colder the gas and the dampier the air of the location is, the more fog you can create. When the air gets warmer, the fog disappears immediatly.
You can use all non-toxic, non-flammable liquified gases for
colder the gas, the better the fog. Liquid Helium seems to be
perfect because of its temperature of –269°C,
but it is very
expensive. The best cost-efficiency has Liquid Nitrogen (called
LIN or LN2, -196°C), Liquid Carbondioxyd
(called LCO, -78°C, or Dry-Ice) and Liquid Air (called LAX,
Pro: Huge pure white clouds of fog possible, good cost-efficiency, good disposability, non-toxic, no-smell, even in high quantities no harm since air contains nitrogen
Contra: higher material effort, not suitable for small-locations
Pro: less material effort to build system, good disposability
Contra: Much less fog than LIN since the higher temperature of only –78°C than –196°C of LIN, fog makes tired, in higher concentration toxic, use of gas-cylinders expensive and can only last for 35seconds per cylinder, fog smells fust, fog only greywhite, Dry-Ice Fog is always wet
Pro: can be used in small venues, On-Site-Production
Contra: through condensation of Liquid Oxygen raised fire-protection needed, On-Site-Production starts at € 100.000.-, bad disposability for mobil-services, needs very high standards of material
Our systems could be driven with CO2 if modified. But fog-output
and possible CO2-airconcentration
is only possible
in much less amounts. It is like driving a Ferarri with wooden
the long run LIN
is much more cost-efficient
than CO2. But: For simple use of, maybe Stage-Jets or semiprofessional
uses, dry-ice or
CO2 could be a
For professional use, nothing can beat liquid nitrogen!
No. Liquid Nitrogen can be very dangerous when it is in concentrated, liquid state and could cause cold-burnings when it comes in contact with large areals of skin or could cause suffocation when used in an unvented environment. But due to the use in the cryofex-system, it evaporates immediatlty and only emmits with strong power masses of icecold clouds. The resoluted gas solves in the air. The air normally contains 78% Nitrogen, so an enourmous amount of Nitrogen has to be given to a room to get a dangerous atmosphere. This is almost impossible in normal use. All cryofex-systems work with special Oxygen-monitors, which monitor the environmental air and control the use of the system via microprozessor based safety-operation. At the cryofex ONE, the maximum tankstorage is depending on the air-volume.
Our Systems contain German TÜV-tested components only. The whole Components are Made In Germany and are made from Stainless Steel and Bronce. Please check your local Authority before purchasing a cryofex-System. Normally there shouldn´t be a problem if the venting of the venue is OK.
The cryofex ONE is for fixed installations like clubs, theme parks, events, film, sfx, education etc. All components are solid-state and custom-made. It has an Outdor bulk-storage (2000l to 20.000l), vakuum-superisolated transferpiping, several effect-heads, Groundfogger, Jets. All effects can be controlled via a controller and has a monitor-selection for all components.
The cryofex MOBILE has to be spezialized for one of the three
different kinds of effects and has only one effect per system.
It contains one effect-head, mobile storage and transferpiping,
controller system. For smaller installations the cryofex MOBILE
can be used stationary of course. These systems are for rent.
Please ask for conditions!
A vented room with about 1000 cubikmeter volumina (less affords a special venting). The dampier the air is the more fog will be produced.
An average of 40 – 60% Airhumidity is optimal.
Please ask for individual use.
