A smoke machine, fogger, or steam machine is a device that emits a thick, dark smoke that resembles smoke or fog. This artificial smoke is most often used in professional cinema, but small, cheaper foggers are also becoming popular for personal usage. Most smoke machines use electricity and often require an electrical bulb to light them. Some smoke machines use propane as their fuel, while others run on kerosene. In the United Kingdom, the British Smoke Stick Association is the sole governing body of the sale of smoke machines.
How to Know Smoke Machine fogger Information
There are many different manufacturers of smoke machines, some of the most well-known are Sanyo, RCA, and Dyson. Manufacturers typically sell their products direct from the factory, with no third party distributors involved. These companies tend to focus on producing professional grade equipment, as opposed to household products, due to the complexities of the design and manufacture of foggers and smoke generators.
Many consumers are concerned with the fog effects of smoke machines, considering the hazards of smoke and fire. These machines produce smoke and/or fog effects similar to those of a real fireplace. Real fires can be dangerous, especially if they catch on fire. Smoke machines do not burn embers like real fireplaces do, and therefore real fires should be carefully watched over.
