Phantom Hazer

The Ultimate Hazer
The Finest Haze
The Longest Hang Time

The Pea Soup Phantom Hazer quietly produces a barely visible atmospheric haze until light passes through it, which is perfect for large volume lighting and laser effects.

With a haze particle size of just 0.2 micron (mass median diameter) this hazer is truly in a class of its own, beating all competitor's systems hands-down. The persistency of the effect means that a single generator can replace a number of conventional hazer systems, producing a beautful even haze with an incredibly long hang time.

The whisper quiet fan is independently switched, and so the unit is equally capable of producing ultra smooth low output haze or large volume smoke effects if required.

Fluid consumption at haze output can be as little as 0.2 litres per 8 hours, so running costs compared to conventional hazers are dramatically lower. Phantom Hazer fluid is of medical grade which gives a superior effect to that of the now old fashioned "oil cracker" units. Oil crackers also leave a messy oily residue on surfaces and can cause respiratory problems with some people. Our Phantom Hazer is a far superior unit offering complete control, no residue deposits, over 95% reduction of airbourne haze fluid compared to conventional water based smoke machines or hazers, a 100% continuous duty cycle and extremely high levels of reliability and efficiency. The Phantom is truly the ultimate haze generator for the discerning user.

Available for 230v or 110v power supplies, the Phantom automatically purges the heater after every haze issue leaving it perfectly clear of any remaining fluid. The heater block has a lifetime guarantee, and the Phantom a 10 year parts warranty.

The world's cleanest hazer.
We often supply the Phantom to replace a number of different (and very well known) water based hazers. Users report that serious issues they had with fluid residue in force-fan cooled lighting and sound equipment immediately cease after installing the Phantom, and after years of daily use does not recur.

Super-Safe Haze.
The Phantom produces the safest non-toxic, non-irritating haze of any unit available. It will not dry out performers' mouths and throats or affect their performance.

How our hazer compares, without prejudice:

- Phantom haze is many times more persistent and fine than conventional water/glycol based haze (Antari, Martin/Jem, Look) and uses 90% less fluid used to create a far superior, cleaner and more even haze effect
- 75% less fluid used and more than double haze hang time duration compared to even the most persistent glycerine hazers.

- Extremely efficient fluid use, very quiet in operation

- A Phantom haze particle size is 3 TIMES SMALLER than our nearest competitor's - meaning each Phantom haze particle has 15 TIMES LESS fluid mass and volume.
- Incredible reliability - 10 year parts warranty, lifetime guarantee on heat exchanger. Made in Britain. Proven track record of reliability.
- Safer than 'diffusion' oil hazers - all haze produced by the Phantom machine is sterile: germ and bacteria free through ultra-safe thermal production process.
- Lowest possible risk of irritation to the eyes and throat than any other smoke or haze system available today. The safest non-toxic, non-irritating haze produced will not dry out performers' mouths and throats or affect their performance. They'll thank you for it!
- Smoke detector friendly - from customer feedback, due to less fluid in the air to generate the effect and the sub-micron particle size, the Phantom may be able to work more harmoniously with your fire alarm system compared with other cloudy/clumpy output hazers.

The Phantom is tried and tested technology with a proven track record of unbeatable reliability and cleanliness. Users love it, we receive overwhelmingly enthusiastic feedback about it, and we're very proud of that. Try it for yourself and find out how a great hazer like the Phantom can benefit your venue, hire company or production.

The Phantom Hazer is the ultimate choice for
TV studios, film sets, churches, theatres, corporate events, laser shows and nightclubs.

Heavy users of hazers (eg nightclubs and laser tag arenas) may find the unit PAYS FOR ITSELF within 1 year through the fluid savings made in comparison to using water-based hazer(s)
Even an average sized nightclub using water based hazers will have paid for a Phantom Hazer
in less than 2 years from the money saved on fluid purchases.
Why spend thousands on your lighting but use a mediocre hazer? Get the best out of them.

You simply cannot buy a better hazer for your money!


"The quality of the haze is superior to anything else I've tried, and I've tried more or less anything in the last 20 years. I invested in a lot of new kit last year, this thing was my best purchase by far. In my opinion worth every penny."

Event Lighting Hire Company Owner, Bedfordshire

"I can’t thank you enough for recommending the Phantom Hazer to me. I have used a few water based hazers before but this one is in another league altogether. I used it immediately on a television music production. It was very straightforward to operate and the haze sat in the air and took a long time to disperse. Over the three day shoot we hardly used any of the oil that was supplied. The haze was virtually invisible to the eye but really showed the Macs, LEDs and profiles to full effect. The studio crew commented that they were hardly aware of it, it didn’t fog the camera shots and there was no smell or any detrimental effects on their comfort. I am very happy with the Hazer and I’m looking forward to using it on our next ent production."

TV Studio Manager, Middlesex

"I purchased your Phantom Hazer for our large laser tag arena venue. The haze is really excellent. It's amazing how long it hangs in the air and how little juice we use. We have found that dispensing for just 2 minutes fills our 6,000 sq ft arena for hours. The haze is far better than any other I have used. It's a great machine and we are completely satisfied."

Laser Tag Arena Owner, Massachusetts

"We have just finished series 2 of The Tudors (BBC TV series) and once again the Phantom played a huge part on set. This is a wonderful machine as it maintains constant levels for up to 4 hours on a closed set. The Phantom and Rocket units have been the mainstay of TeamFX for the last 12 years and have helped us to establish a fantastic working relationship with Irish and American DOPs (they love their smoke!). Phantoms are now asked for by name in Ireland, and coupled with the fact that they are robust and almost indestructible are ideal for use by SFX depts or for hiring out"

Team/FX, Ireland

"I have to say that the Phantom has blown us away! This seems to be the perfect solutions for us. We have a 1,300 seat church with very strong HVAC and we needed quality haze that didn't look like clouds of smoke being pushed around by the airflow, as well as look good on camera. Once the haze distributes in the room you can't see movement at all!"

Church in Texas, USA

"The particulate size is certainly very small indeed - I can clearly see individual glycol or cracked oil smoke particles when exposed in a bright beam close up, but not so with this machine. ...all I can say is it performed superbly - absolutely even, very fine haze throughout the venue. Once I had finished plotting the show, I turned the hazer off. 90 minutes later the level and coverage of the haze had not changed at all. The machine used less than 100ml of fluid over the 6 hours it was running. So, highly recommended, and so much better than all the alternatives I have used."

Customer in the film production industry

"Wow that haze really is tiny! It will be great to see my laser without having to use bucket loads of fluid and still see where you are going. I want to eventually do corporate work too, so this will be an advantage. Thanks for this great product. Also, I'm impressed with the packaging and kit of parts and the little added touches. I had a look inside ... and was very happy to see the quality of workmanship inside (I'm a fitter and turner/engineering technician) it's clear it ain't no mass produced, slapped together machine!

Count me as another satisfied customer who will recomend people deal with you."

Laser Hire Company, Australia

"Thanks for the prompt delivery of the Phantom Hazer. We are very pleased with the machine as it far exceeds our expectations and the level of haze produced is superb. I will recommend them to everyone!!"

Rollerskating Arena Owner, UK

"After nearly 10 years of operating a laser-tag site and using mostly Jem smoke machines, including trying their so called 'long lasting' fluids I was initially sceptical about the hang time and fluid consumption claims for the Phantom Hazer, but a demo of [the Phantom] confounded my scepticism. The haze was still faintly visible after 6 hours, and had been mostly dispersed by air movement through our building, as a by product we managed to better seal our building and decrease our heating costs!

The new Phantom Hazer is performing brilliantly. So all in all I’m incredibly satisfied, especially with the fluid consumption. We have been using the Phantom Hazer for 18 months now and have only just placed an order for additional fluid. The 20 litres we purchased with the machine has lasted us for the first 18 months.

Whilst the cheap running costs of this hazer are much appreciated, it is the haze's long hang time which is really great. As a result of the long hang time the haze forms a consistent effect throughout all of our arena. With the previous Jem machines we had large variations the further you got from the source. Also due to the low consumption, maintenance and refilling cycles have been reduced further saving time and money.

All in all I am very pleased to recommend the Phantom Hazer, it's a great bit of kit and the long warranty on the machine and its parts are a testament to the build quality."

Laser Tag Arena Owner, UK

"The Phantom is INCREDIBLE. It would have saved us so much heartache and trouble had we just purchased this in the first place. It’s worth every penny!"

House of Worship, Indiana USA

"We received the Phantom Hazer with time to spare last week. Thank you so much. I’ve included a before and after picture so you could see the difference your hazer has made. Thank you! It is a difference maker."

Church in Montana, USA

"Absolutely utterly fantastic! We have just wrapped on a BBC PG Woodhouse 6 part series and I've used the Phantom Hazer for all the castle location scenes. It is brilliant, with only a few minutes haze production it hangs for ages allowing us to shoot without needing to constantly top up the "look", having this consistency was so useful on a very busy schedule, Can't recommend it highly enough!"

Director of Photography, UK

The Phantom has been used on many feature film productions including: John Carter on Mars (Disney), X-Men First Class (Fox), Hugo (Paramount), The Woman in Black (Hammer), Jackboots on Whitehall, Hamlet (RSC / BBC TV Production, 2009, "where it replaced a DF50, Cirrus cracker and a couple of Jem 24/7s due to the director of photography preferring the quality of haze from [the Phantom]"), as well as on television shows including Game of Thrones (HBO), Sherlock (BBC), Coronation Street (ITV), Dr Who (BBC), Upstairs Downstairs (BBC), Magic Numbers (ITV1) and This Morning (ITV1), countless commercials, in churches, at corporate events and shows, nightclubs, theme parks and laser tag arenas.
It is the only hazer that has been used by film makers in historic National Trust properties and is fast becoming the #1 choice of DOPs.

Unit dimensions: 55 x 37 x 18cm, 14kg approx.
Power consumption: Peak 1.1kW, average over an hour: 60 watts.
2kg CO2 cylinder will allow 8 hours of continuous haze production at 3% output (can be increased or decreased as required). A 5kg cylinder (available separately) will allow 20 hours continuous haze production, a 20kg cylinder 100 hours. It is unlikely that you will need continuous production of Phantom haze indoors, as the effect hangs in the air for so many hours - you are not 'topping up' against continuous dispersion as you would with water based units. Normally 5 minutes of haze production will fill a club/laser tag arena for most of the night.

Flightcase for complete Phantom Hazer system.
Lid lifts off, unit is in place and can be used in-situ. Case has locking wheels. Holds either the PS48 or PS49 unit, remote control, 2kg CO2 cylinder, CO2 regulator and 5 litres Phantom Hazer Fluid.
