Introducing Rosco\'s Vapour Series – “We\'ve Got A Machine For That!”

The Mini-V Fog Machine is the most affordable and compact fog machine in the range. It delivers a powerful, continuous stream of professional-quality fog. The Mini-V's small design and energy-efficient, durable heat exchanger make it a perfect choice for mobile users or applications that lack the space for a larger fog generator.

Simple functions mean easy operation, no hassles and solid reliability. The Mini-V heats quickly and delivers a solid stream of fog, triggered by an on/off rocker switch. No training is required for assistants, students, technicians or engineers – just press and hold to make fog. This lightweight unit is easily transported to any location that needs a professional-grade fog machine – making the Mini-V ideally suited for photographers, mobile DJs and event planners. The Mini-V fits comfortably into standard duct work, making it an excellent choice for industrial applications, such as HVAC testing.

The Mini-V is designed to use Rosco's entire range of Academy Award Winning fog fluids that have been used and approved by professionals in every market.

The Vapour Fog Machine is The workhorse of Rosco's new family of fog machines. It comes packed with all of the features that a professional effects technician could want, including solid reliability and ease of maintenance. Combining high-volume, continuous fog output, with a simple, one-step cleaning process and common core components that are designed to be replaced quickly; the Vapour can be relied upon to get the job done.

Precise output control allows the Vapour the widest range of atmospheric effects and makes it versatile for use in virtually any venue. Careful monitoring of temperature and pump speed results in both fine wisps of smoke or billowing, continuous clouds of fog.

Two control options are standard in the Vapour: A detachable timed remote offers convenient local control of output and operation, and an integrated DMX interface allows programmed fog effects via a lighting desk. For maximum versatility, a Multi-Link feature allows a single Vapour Remote to control up to four Vapour, Vapour Plus, or V-Hazer units that are daisy-chained together via 3-pin XLR.

The Vapour is designed to use Rosco's entire range of Academy Award Winning fog fluids that have been used and approved by professionals in every market.

The Vapour Plus Fog Machine is designed specifically to fill large venues and outdoor spaces and produces impressive amounts of fog quickly and efficiently. The sophisticated software driving the Vapour Plus precisely balances the heating and pump cycles to insure there is huge amounts of fog when needed it. At 100% output, the Vapour Plus will run for a full 60 seconds before a short re-heating cycle is needed, and the giant output of this machine is capable of consuming more than seven litres of fluid per hour!

This fogger produces stadium-sized effects, yet is small enough to mount inside box truss and power from a single mains circuit. An innovative, rotating bottle carriage allows the Vapour Plus to be placed in either the traditional horizontal position or in a vertical orientation. This feature, coupled with the massive fog blasts produced by the Vapour Plus, allows the machine to produce cryogenic-type burst effects without the hassle of handling/storing large dewar tanks of C02.

Two control options are standard in the Vapour Plus: a detachable timed remote offers convenient local control of output and operation and an integrated DMX interface allows programmed fog effects via a lighting desk. For maximum versatility, a Multi-Link feature allows a single Vapour Remote to control up to four Vapour, Vapour Plus, or V-Hazer units that are daisy-chained together via 3-pin XLR.

The Vapour Plus is designed to use Rosco's entire range of Academy Award Winning fog fluids that have been used and approved by professionals in every market.

Quiet and reliable, the V-Hazer utilises innovative, internal baffles to maximise airflow, which generates greater output and thorough dispersion of fog particles – all of which ensures a great haze that spreads consistently and smoothly throughout the venue.

In order to provide a silent performing space, the blower inside the V-Hazer turns off when not in-use to ensure the quietest operation possible.

The V-Hazer shares the same remote with the Vapour and Vapour Plus. Fan and pump speed are synchronised to the output potentiometer and have been optimised to create a superior haze effect when controlled via the detachable remote. Independent control of fan speed and pump volume is available via two channels of DMX, which allows the user to dial in their perfect balance of fast haze time and even distribution from their lighting console.

V-Hazer Fluid is available specifically for this machine. Modelled on Rosco's Academy-Award winning fog fluid formulation, this water-based haze fluid achieves maximum hang time and optimal particle size without leaving behind dangerous and damaging residue common to oil or glycerin based hazers. The operating temperature, pump pressure, and output nozzle of the V-Hazer have been specifically designed and engineered to aerosolize Rosco V-Hazer Fluid.

All Rosco Vapour machines has been tested for use in professional theatrical productions and is included under the Equipment-Based Guidelines of the Equity-League Pension and Health Trust Funds. Rosco Vapour machines are also compliant with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers Safety Bulletin #10.
