So, I've searched and haven't really found the answers I'm looking for, and the manual is really vague so I am looking for answers from people who have used this unit before.
I've used the PeaSouper Dry Ice fogger before on a small stage and it worked great. Now I'm using the same effect on a big stage so I have gone and got an Aquafogger 3300 this time.
My questions are as follows:
First, the manual says that 50lbs of dry ice will last for about 10 minutes using the 3300. However the 3300 has many settings, so do they mean 10 minutes at full boar 160 degrees F, gate closed all the way and fan running full blast? Or do they mean the complete opposite of 10 minutes at minimal setting with the gate all the way open and temp only 100 degrees?
Second, The manual states that the fan and pump on the 3300 can be controlled by certain dimmers. Can ETC Sensor dimmers control the fan and pump on a 3300?
Third, how much ducting can the 3300 comfortably push through without reducing output too much? I am trying to pipe the fog about 3ft up above the top of the fogger and about 15 to 25ft on stage from the wing to a second stage level to create a fog curtain effect billowing down the front of the set.
I'm looking for real world experience here guys!
