With Elation Professional’s new Antari DNG-100 Fog Cooler, users can generate cascades of low-lying heavy fog without ever having to use dry ice.

Powered by a heavy-duty 750W cooler, the DNG-100 is incredibly easy to set up and operate. First, place the fog-conducting hose from your regular fog machine’s output into the input of the DNG-100. Then, simply plug in the unit and watch it convert the fog into a floor-hugging cloud of dense, white smoke.

"The DNG-100 will transform the user’s conventional fog machine into a unit capable of producing low-lying fog whenever this type of effect it desired and with no dry ice," says Joey Corral, sales manager of Antari products for Elation Professional. "The hypnotic effects of the DNG-100 are virtually indistinguishable from those created by foggers that use dry ice. It works by chilling the temperature of fog from a regular fog machine to the point where it falls to the ground and lingers there."

The DNG-100 operates best with fog machines that generate 15,000 cubic feet per minute or more–like Antari’s X530, X515, Z1500 and Z1200 models. There are no external controls on the unit, as the volume and rate of fog output are controlled by whatever fog machine the DNG-100 is hooked up to. With the addition of an optional second fog-conducting hose (sold separately), the ground fog can be directed to anywhere within 10m of the DNG-100’s output nozzle.

Since there’s no messy dry ice involved, the DNG-100 produces significantly cleaner fog without high levels of unwanted carbon dioxide. Non-toxic LFG premium low-lying fog fluid is needed to achieve the dramatic, smoky effects.

"In the past, you had to hassle with dry ice to create this highly desired type of low-lying fog," Corral says. "Now, with the Antari DNG-100, you can still get the good stuff but in a safer and more efficient way."

The DNG-100 measures 29" L x 23"W x 15"H and weighs 158.7 lbs.
