Since our beginning back in this industry over 10 years agoo Atlanta Special FX has been a world leader and trusted manufacturer of CO2 Cryo Jet, CO2 Cryo Gun, CO2 Cryo Cannon, CO2 Cryo Blaster, CO2 Confetti Cannons, CO2 UV Neon Paint Cannons and more.  Currently we are the fastest growing special effects company on the planet and each of our CO2 cryo products are made here in the USA with the highest quality rated components.  Over the years we have watched companies come and go attempting to sell foreign made CO2 jets labeled as their own.  This has caused quite a bit of confusion amongst new customers who don't yet understand the properties of CO2 special fx products, and the importance of having trusted manufactures here in the United States.  When searching CO2 Jet, you may have seen names that cause confusion.  In todays marketplace of special effects for DJ's, Nightclubs, and Sports Teams you may have seen terms used CO2 Jet Blaster, Cryo Jet, C02 Jet, and Handheld Cryo Gun.  So there is a difference between all the names used and here are a couple of tips to help ensure you are purchasing quality special effects equipment manufactured for using liquid siphon CO2 tanks. 

There are essentially two types of CO2 cryo products, portable and stage mounted.  The portable CO2 gun or Cryo Gun is the one you see an individual holding and spraying white CO2 fog in to the crowd.  These units do not require any power and are manually operated by squeezing a valve to release the liquid CO2.  The mounted CO2 Jets are products that you see mounted to the front of stages, on trusses, on the side of buildings, and more.  These units do require power and are generally fired with DMX, Relay, or Simple On/Off switch.  You can also you push button control boxes.  Please note all the products fall under special effects category and are used for special fx only.

Now lets take an in depth look at the different labels and how easily they can be confused.  Have you ever seen someone label their unit "C02" (using a zero instead of the letter "O") The chemical label for Carbon Dioxide is CO2.  You may have seen just the words "Cryo" without the label CO2.  This could mean any product capable of using a "Cryogenic" product and you may be on a Nitrogen system website.  It is also possible that you could be on a medical website as some physicians use "Cryo Guns" for freezing skin defects off.

So be sure you are searching CO2 for products that use the more affordable Liquid CO2. You will want to make sure you are getting a special effects model such as the one pictured here at  Hopefully this short blog about CO2 and CO2 Cryo products has helped you understand the importance of using a trusted and established company for your Cryo Special FX.
