The traditional dry ice machine, the Peasouper
is lightweight yet powerful. The rate of flow is easily controlled,
and the units 20 lbs dry ice capacity gives approximately
5 minutes of fog production. Two loads can be used before
the water needs re-heating.
The Peasouper is more powerful than machines twice its size
while being very simple to use. The flow rate is controlled
by a four-step ratchet system which allows output variation
through the front nozzle for which a ducting adaptor and ducting
hose are available.
Dry ice, which can be purchased from various depots around
the country, is solid carbon dioxide, heavier than air, thus
creating a low lying blanket of fog which is odourless and
non-toxic, for that atmospheric 'walking on clouds' affair.
