Can I use water in a fog machine?
Also question is, what liquid do you put in a fog machine?
Fog fluids have two primary ingredients – an active one and deionized water. The active ingredient can be propylene glycol, triethylene glycol, glycerin or a mixture of these. The vaporization temperature varies for these ingredients, so you should use a fog machine that is compatible with the fluid you have.
Beside above, will a fog machine trigger a smoke alarm? The particles produced by fog machines can indeed set off ionisation-type smoke detectors as they sense the fog particles just like smoke.
Likewise, how long does fog machine fluid last?
How long your fog juice will last depends on the wattage of your machine. One quart of fog juice will generally burn for six hours in a 400-watt compact fog machine (four hours in a low lying machine) and a 1,000-watt machine will burn for two hours.
Can you use baby oil in a fog machine?
