CryoFX offers a huge selection of handheld CO2 cannons. Hip hop, disco, ’80s blasts or yacht rock from the past, sometimes you just need to let loose and dance at the best concerts in the world. So, earlier this year, me and my friends attended one of the world-class concerts in Boston; House of Blues! As soon as we got in, the crowd was enjoying every moment as the beat was vibrating off the walls, the drinks were being passed across the groups of friends just as fast as they could make them, conversations were loud and we were grappling to hear over the loud music, but to my surprise people were not dancing.

Then, the stadium’s ambiance took a huge turn. Plumes of theatrical smoke blasted from the stage. The smoke created awesome visual effects that instantly awed and got everyone up on their feet as if it were a “wake-up call” telling people that it was time to get wild. In no time, the place was filled with sweaty bodies swaying to the thumping beat. To my naked eyes, the smoke was the making of the concert’s success!

So, what was this smoke that made everyone dance like mad men and women? The smoke was Co2 gas discharged through handheld co2 cannons. This article will have an in-depth look into the different types of Handheld Co2 cannons offered by CryoFX!

But first….

What Exactly Are Handheld Co2 Cannons?

Handheld Co2 cannons, also referenced as handheld cryo guns, are Co2 discharging units that do not require any electric power and are manually operated by squeezing a valve to release liquid Co2.

These cryo guns are used to produce spectacular Co2 effects at live performances, music videos, parties, festivals, events and movies and have become the most popular and preferred way to turn performances into full-fledged productions.
