I'm working on an idea and was wondering if anyone knew if i could stand one of these cheep $20 fogers upright and have it spray the fog straight up in the air??? if not how could i get this effect to work
the main problem with tilting the foggers any which way is the tank leaking and possible shorting out the heater. if you can detach the tank and stand it up right-side up separately, you might be able to stand the rest of the fogger pointing up.
my question then is: how tall is your column? and where will you put the chiller to have the fog fall back down and not fly away?
well if i understand what your saying yes it will work. For just a 400w fogger. all you need is a 1 1/2" ID pipe 2' long full of dry ice with a drilled cap to make good cold fog. are you running a fogger for each pillar or one behind the sign split off?
What if you build a shelf behind the sign (5' off ground) so you can place both foggers on it. Though, you may not have enough room to have chillers for both either. I am not quite clear on the design yet, perhaps you can use photoshop or some other program to draw a rough idea of how it will work and how you currently are thinking of running the pvc pipe. If you just ran two foggers, both firing behind the sign (on a shelf like I said), outwards towards the colums, and used 90 degree bend pvc tubing to fire them down, the fog would at least come out down over the pillars. The problem then is, how do you chill it fast enough to get it to flow down over the pillars. One idea is using 400 watt foggers, if you have the ability to time it so it uses more of a continuous output (so that you can avoid the 5 minute or so reheat cycle every so often), then the volume of the output will be a lot less, so you might be able to put a little bit of length between the fogger output and the 90 degree bend over each pillar and pack it with dry ice. With a small enough volume out of each fogger, and dry ice with a good foot or so, you might be able to achieve the fog trickling down the pillars.
Unless I am not quite clear on what you are trying to do.
sorry for the delayed response i've been off line for a few days.........
i started building well i've almost finished my arch =)
half way through it i came across this post and it is pretty much the same thing i made only i went with all wood instead of foam
my post are 15"X17" and 7' high
the sign is boxed out and is 15" wide
i think the whole thing together is about 7' wide from post to post
i'm going to place some plexi behind the cutout so done in the link and seal off that area
the rest of the box i am going to fill with dry ice and run the piping through so the pipe will be totally surrounded in ice
i have to finish painting it and then set it all up together and figure out exactly how i'm going to mount the foggers
I will snap a few pictures tomorrow and post them up here so you'll have a better idea
here is the link i found and to be honest i really dont know if i saw this b/4 or after i started my build but either way i love how his came out so i'm give him all the credit for the inspirations =)
