LE MAITRE - smoke/haze | Lichteffekte

Le Maitre have been manufacturing top quality smoke machines for over two decades.

Le Maitre smoke fluids are specifically designed to create different effects for different applications. Nearly all fog fluids are based on glycols and it is up to the user to choose what kind of effect they require. Different fog effects are created by the blend of glycols and water used. All glycols produce a small residue (ash content), which is the substance that is deposited in the heat exchanger, ultimately causing blockage. Some glycols produce more residue than others and we have tried to give some guidance here.

Most smoke fluids are interchangeable provided they come from a reputable source. However it should be remembered that the cheapest glycols often contain the highest ash content and reputable manufacturers should be using pharmaceutical grade glycol as opposed to the industrial grade.
Other problems between machines can occur with the viscosity of the fluid. This is especially evident where a manufacturer has used excess water in order to keep costs down.

Le Maitre G300

Le Maitre G300

The G300 is the most technologically advanced fog machine available. Not only is it the industry-leading continuous output fogger, but it also doubles as a hazer. By simply changing the output mode and the fluid in the machine, it safely doubles as a water-based hazer. This feature has never before been available on a standard fog machine. It combines an extremely high powered smoke generator with a water based hazer.

The operator can select either function, by simply changing the mode on the digital display and the fluid used.

Le Maitre Stadium Hazer

Le Maitre Stadium Hazer

The Le Maitre Stadium Hazer is a new concept in the manufacture and delivery of vast volumes of non-toxic haze.

The Stadium Hazer allows huge amounts of haze to be delivered without the problems of oily deposits with cost effective, non-toxic consumables. The patented delivery system is designed for easy maintenance and is programmed to self clean on start up and shut down.

The delivery arm can be angled through 120 degrees and has a variable speed high output fan to project the haze to where it is required. The DMX receiver is a fully compliant, flash memory, 512 channel unit, with rotary selection switches. An LED status indicator differentiates between correctly and incorrectly received data.

Le Maitre's C-Beam Haze Fluid

Le Maitre's C-Beam Haze Fluid

Is only to be used in the G300 smoke machine when it is operating in "haze" mode.The haze is capable of covering very large areas very quickly. As the ash content of this fluid is extremely high, the service period of the G300 block will be significantly reduced, and regular replacement of the heat exchanger pipes will be necessary.

Le Maitre's hazer fluid

Le Maitre's hazer fluid

For the Neutron XS Hazer, the MVS and the Stadium Hazer is markedly different from smoke or fog fluid because it is basically a sugar. It is designed to hang in the air and accentuate beams of light without creating a messy oily residue. Haze fluid is used in much smaller proportions to smoke fluid thus giving the benefit of atmosphere without the large consumable cost. For use in the Neutron XS Hazer, the MVS and the Stadium Hazer.
