There are some dangers associated with using CO2 cryo effects but only without taking proper precautions and being careful.
-Low Lying Dry Ice Foggers-
Our low-lying foggers use regular “store bought” dry-ice which can burn skin when handled without gloves. Yes, cold can burn as badly as hot can! Frostbite is a prime example. Also never store dry ice in a lockable sealed container because the CO2 found in the dry ice expands as it evaporates away. It takes a whole lot of CO2 gas to make a little bit of dry ice and locked sealed coolers have been know to explode when latched shut over night even with only small amounts of dry ice left in them!
-Cryo Guns or CO2 Jets-
Using CO2 Guns or Jets have their own special precautions.
– One must NEVER under ANY circumstances point the gun or jet directly at another person. These devices essentially shoot “super cold” condensed liquid C02 and hitting a person with this substance can cause burns.
– Special care must also be taken to not touch the barrel of the gun as they are freezing cold after just a few shots.
– Cryo Guns and CO2 Jets are limited to a MAXIMUM 3 second blasts with no less than 60 seconds between blasts. The extreme cold can cause the gun to freeze or the seals to wear out.
– Additionally Cryo effects should only be used ventilated areas because CO2 gas is heavier than air it can settle or displace breathable air in very tightly confined spaces.
All Cyro Guns and CO2 Jets require a signed waiver for their use. Much like a rental car can be dangerous if not used properly, this equipment can be dangerous is misused as well. Pro-Mix accepts no liability due to personal or property damages caused by customers when renting or using this equipment.
