What is a Cryo gun? Cryo guns and Cryo cannons shoot a blast of CO2 that makes a cloud of smoke. The most commonly used Cryo guns are for music festivals, DJs, nightclubs, bars, and concerts. The Cryo guns can help add a great surprise; at exactly a precise moment of a song or a live show. Also, they are referred to as a “fog gun for party” or “party fog gun”. These Cryo guns add excitement to the events they are used at, whether weddings, dj events, or similar.
There are other uses for this fairly new technology as well, such as for medical procedures. In addition, you can use the cryo gun for pest control, creating snow, cleaning telescopes, and some facial treatments.
What is a Cryo Cannon?
The Cryo Cannon, also called Co2 Cannon, is the most popular brand of Cryo device for music-inspired gatherings. It’s very lightweight at under 3 pounds. Also, it can fire a cloud of white smoke like clouds from 0 to 40+ feet away.
It’s very simple to use. You only need to attach a CO2 tank to it with a snap fitting and tighten it with a wrench. You can be an expert within seconds. After attaching the CO2, you open the fitting to allow the CO2 to flow into the cannon. You grip the dj cryo gun firmly and squeeze the inner handle to fire it. You can choose from multiple neon colors on a dj cryo gun barrel. These include purple, pink, blue, red, green, teal, orange, and yellow. Choose a color to match your logo or band’s logo color. Cryo cannon’s definitely bring the party to your festivities just as any fog gun for party would.
What is Cryotherapy?
Cryotherapy or cryoablation is a medical procedure to use extreme cold for removing abnormal body tissues. You can use it to do the following:
- Remove external items, such as warts or skin tags to freeze them off.
- Internally, for prostate cancer, cervical cancer, and liver cancer.
Cryotherapy is minimally invasive. When used for internal purposes, a cryoprobe is inserted through a very small incision in the skin to apply the treatment. The gas of choice for cryotherapy can be; liquid nitrogen, liquid nitrous oxide, or argon gas, depending on the needs. The freezing action freezes the damaged tissues and then the area will blister or peel off, if it’s applied externally. Conversely, it will be cleared from your body by your immune system if it’s internally.
Cryo Gun for Pest Control
Another form of cryo guns exists in pest control. A nozzle on the gun converts liquid carbon dioxide into small particles of dry ice for a freezing effect. The dry ice comes out of the nozzle at very cold temperatures of -108 degrees Fahrenheit and it kills pests on contact and immediately.
Other pest control methods use different pesticides to kill bugs in and around your home. These methods can eventually lead to the pests building up a resistance to the chemicals and then the chemicals will not be as effective and in the end, will not work at all. Since cryo guns for pest control don’t use chemicals, pests can’t build a resistance to this type of treatment.
This form of pest control is convenient and requires no licensing to use it. You don’t need to vacate your home for several hours for chemicals to dissipate. But, you can return to normal use immediately after the treatment. Also, you can spray it on most electronics and around people and pets with no adverse side effects from the CO2.
What Are Carbon Dioxide Snow Guns?
The experts at NASA clean large telescope mirrors without leaving a scratch on them with carbon dioxide snow or a CO2 snow gun. The snow-like crystals of CO2 clean tiny particles and molecules off the mirror on a telescope. This method can clean the largest telescope mirror ever on the Webb telescope, which is replacing the Hubble telescope in space. The Webb will capture light from 13.5 billion light-years away and so it must remain in pristine clean condition.
At smaller levels, this type of snow gun is used to clean telescopes in laboratories quickly and effectively. The older methods to clean this is time-consuming, with blowing compressed air on the mirror and then letting it rest for 15 minutes followed by many times of dampening tissues and wiping on the area of concern.
What is Cryotherapy for a Facial?
A cryotherapy facial involves having liquid nitrogen on your face for 2 or 3 minutes. It freezes the face and gives it a youthful glow and even appearance. This type of facial is fast and affordable for almost everyone and it leaves no redness on the skin afterward and no downtime. You can have this procedure done during your lunch hour and go right back to work. The entire session lasts only 15 to 30 minutes and you are on your way to a more beautiful you.
Cryotherapy facials can help brighten skin, tighten facial pores and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. This method of facial works on the fact that the O2 increases blood flow to the face to achieve these amazing results.
What is a Fake Snow Machine?
Fake snow machines use a form of cryo to create fluffy white particles that look like snow from snowmaking liquid of distilled water, rubbing alcohol, soap, and sometimes a scent as well. The pressurized pump creates a foam substance that appears like snow and it will last for some time if the temperatures are cold enough outside. These are available for family fun and celebrations in various sizes and at various price points as well. If you want a lot of snow, you can rent a fake snow machine that is commercial grade to create a lot of winter wonderland.
Cryo methods are very useful for several different things and in the future, there will be even more types of cryo guns for other elements as well, since science is ever-evolving.
