Low-Lying Fog Machines

Our low-lying foggers produce a dense, ground-hugging fog effect. Many of these units require the purchase of dry ice, which is available locally. Click here to find dry ice retailers in your area.


City Theatrical 3300City Theatrical Aquafog 3300

The City Theatrical Aquafog 3300 is a large light-weight dry ice fog machine.   Weighing 115 lbs., it hold 75 lbs. of dry ice with a run time of approximately 15 to 20 minutes.  The Aquafog 3300 features a durable molded thermoplastic tank for corrosion resistance and light weight.  A powerful stainless steel pump brings heated water from the tank up to the dry ice.  A 6" fan pressurizes the tank and sends the fog out to the stage.

The Aquafog 3300 requires two 20 amp circuits of electricity to power the heaters and two 2 amp circuits  for the pump and fan respectively.  Indicator lights show the status of the water temperature and heating elements at a glance. A low water level cutout switch assures that the heaters will not operate if the water is low.

Le Maitre LSG Low Smoke GeneratorLe Maitre LSG Low Smoke Generator

The Le Maitre LSG Low Smoke Generator works in conjunction with the Le Maitre G300 Fog/Haze machine. The unit weighs approximately 200 lbs. and requires a direct connection to a container of liquid CO2 to chill the fog and output a consistent low lying fog.

The G300 will consume approximately 3/4 of a gallon per hour. The C02 will be consumed at approximately 8 pounds per minute. The system can be controlled through a standard remote or a DMX remote.

This machine will require you to provide your own or rented Liquid CO2 Dewer tank 200 lb from an industrial gas supplier.

We offer for your convenience our Mini-Dewer tank which holds 100 lbs. of LCO2 that can be rented, and filled at most local industrial gas supply houses.

Rosco Coldflow

The Rosco Coldflow is an accessory for standard fog machines that converts liquid carbon dioxide (LCO2) to dry ice. The dry ice cools a uniquely designed aluminum extrusion that is capable of converting large volumes of fog Into dense low lying fog. The unit can create a wide range of low lying fog effects from a continuous layer to a gigantic cloudburst.

By using LCO2, the Coldflow is far more efficient than more conventional means for creating a low-lying fog. The unit actually uses the LCO2 to create dry ice inside an aluminum chamber. You then can use your Alpha 900, Delta 3000 and Model 1700 fog machine and run the fog through the cooling chamber. The fog is chilled below ambient temperature and will hug the ground.

Best results will be achieved when the Rosco Coldflow is used with any Rosco fog machine plus Rosco Stage & Studio Fog Fluid. Stage & Studio is specifically designed to help create fog that will lie lower and accept the lower temperatures and other changes created by the Coldflow.

A remote included as standard equipment activates Coldflow. The remote has three easy-to-read LEDs. One of these indicators is for ON/OFF, the second illuminates while the unit is cooling (about ten minutes) and a third tells you when Coldflow is ready for operation Attached to the unit is a 7' metal hose for connection from the Coldflow to a LCO2 tank.

Chiller Module

The Chiller Module, when used with Rosco's Stage & Studio Fog Fluid, allows you to produce low-lying fog effects, which can simulate a dry-ice machine on demand.

The black Chiller Module is crafted in a textured, high-impact polymer plastic. It is equipped with a metal basket for dry ice, and a power cord for the internal fan, which creates slight pressure and maintain flow.

When dry ice is not available, ordinary ice may be used. The Chiller Module will not leak as the ice melts, but water should be emptied off frequently, and should not be allowed to accumulate. Operation is that simple.

Dimensions: 32 x 18x 14 - Weight: 28 lb approx.
