Megatron Ice Cannon

The Megatron (or Terrafog) Ice Cannon is the original, liquid nitrogen, fog cannon.

These generic names all refer to a large, freezing, fog effect, primarily used in nightclubs and created using liquid nitrogen (LN2). The effect is of an extremely large and forceful blast of very cold fog which can engulf a large space very quickly – typically a few seconds.

In recent years these liquid nitrogen effects have been mimicked using carbon dioxide (CO2) but whilst cheaper to purchase the effect is much smaller, less cold and with greater potential hazard when used in high volumes as CO2 is an asphyxiant, unlike LN2.

BST have been making Ice Cannons for many years and have refined the system over many installations to create a very powerful and spectacular effect that is both safe and cost effective to run.

These effects fall into a group of effects know as cryogenics (the science of the very cold). At -189°C, liquid nitrogen effects are at the cutting edge of special effects and industrial technology and as such these effects are not cheap but the effect produced is unlike anything else!
