World's Ultimate Hazer
The Finest Haze
The Longest Hang Time
The Pea Soup Phantom Hazer quietly produces
a barely visible atmospheric haze until light passes through
it, which is perfect for large volume lighting and laser effects.
"THE DIFFERENCE MAKER"
With a tiny haze particle size of just 0.2 micron
(mass median diameter) this precision engineered hazer is
truly in a class of its own, beating all competitor's systems
hands-down. The persistency of the effect means that a single
generator can replace a number of conventional hazer systems,
producing a beautful even haze with an incredibly long hang
The whisper quiet fan is independently switched,
and so the unit is equally capable of producing ultra smooth
low output haze or large volume smoke effects if required.
Fluid consumption at haze output can be as little
as 0.2 litres per 8 hours, so running costs compared to conventional
hazers are dramatically lower. Phantom Hazer fluid is of medical
grade which gives a superior effect to that of the now old
fashioned "oil cracker" units. Oil crackers also
leave a messy oily residue on surfaces and can cause respiratory
problems with some people. Our Phantom Hazer
is a far superior precision engineered unit offering complete
control, no residue deposits, over 95% reduction
of airbourne haze fluid compared to conventional water based
smoke machines or hazers, a 100% continuous duty cycle and
extremely high levels of reliability and efficiency. The Phantom
Hazer is truly the ultimate haze generator for the discerning
Available for 230v or 110v power supplies, the
Phantom automatically purges the heater after every haze issue
leaving it perfectly clear of any remaining fluid. The Phantom
Hazer heater block has a lifetime warranty against
clogging or failure, and the Phantom a 10 year parts
The world's cleanest hazer.
We often supply the Phantom to replace
a number of different (and very well known) water based hazers.
Users report that serious issues they had with fluid residue
in force-fan cooled lighting and sound equipment immediately
cease after installing the Phantom Hazer, and after years
of daily use does not recur.
The Phantom Hazer produces the safest non-toxic,
non-irritating and completely sterile haze of any unit available. It will not
dry out performers' mouths and throats, affect their performance. The haze produced does not contain any bacteria.
Virtually silent operation.
No noisy air compressor or fluid pump. Quiet haze distribution fan.

Made entirely in Britain under ISO:9001
- 10 year parts warranty
- Lifetime guarantee on heater block
How our hazer compares, without
|- Phantom haze is many times more
persistent and fine than conventional water/glycol based
haze (Antari, Martin/Jem, Look) and uses around 90% less
fluid used to create a far superior, cleaner
and more even haze effect.
|- 75% less fluid used and more than double haze hang time
duration compared to even the most persistent glycerine
|- Very economical fluid purchase price, 100% active ingredient.
|- One 5 litre fluid container will give up to 200+ hours
- Incredibly efficient fluid use, very quiet operation.
|- A Phantom haze particle size is 3 TIMES SMALLER
than our nearest competitor's - meaning each Phantom haze
particle has 15 TIMES LESS
fluid mass and volume.
|- Purchase price of complete system considerably less than MDG and DF50 price.
|- Incredible reliability - 10 year parts warranty, lifetime
guarantee on heat exchanger. Made in Britain. 100%
proven track record of reliability.
|- Safer than DF50 - all haze produced
by the Phantom machine is completely sterile: germ and
bacteria free through ultra-safe thermal production process.
|- Lowest possible risk of irritation to the eyes and
throat than any other smoke or haze system available today.
The safest non-toxic, non-irritating haze produced will
not dry out performers' mouths and throats or affect their
performance. They'll thank you for it!

of the haze is superior to anything else I've tried,
and I've tried more or less anything in the last 20
years. I invested in a lot of new kit last year, this
thing was my best purchase by far.
In my opinion worth every penny."
Event Lighting Hire Company Owner, Bedfordshire
"I can’t thank you enough
for recommending the Phantom Hazer
to me. I have used a few water based hazers before
but this one is in another league altogether.
I used it immediately on a television music production.
It was very straightforward to operate and the haze
sat in the air and took a long time to disperse. Over
the three day shoot we hardly used any of the oil
that was supplied. The haze was virtually invisible
to the eye but really showed the Macs, LEDs and profiles
to full effect. The studio crew commented that they
were hardly aware of it, it didn’t fog
the camera shots and there was no smell or any detrimental
effects on their comfort. I am very happy
with the Hazer and I’m looking forward to using
it on our next ent production."
TV Studio Manager, Middlesex
"I purchased your Phantom Hazer
for our large laser tag arena venue. The haze is really
excellent. It's amazing how long it hangs in the air
and how little juice we use. We have found
that dispensing for just 2 minutes fills our 6,000
sq ft arena for hours. The haze is far better
than any other I have used. It's a great machine and
we are completely satisfied."
Laser Tag Arena Owner, Massachusetts
"We have just finished series 2
of The Tudors (BBC TV series) and once again the Phantom
played a huge part on set. This is a wonderful machine
as it maintains constant levels for up to
4 hours on a closed set. The Phantom and
Rocket units have been the mainstay of TeamFX for
the last 12 years and have helped us to establish
a fantastic working relationship with Irish and American
DOPs (they love their smoke!). Phantoms are now asked
for by name in Ireland, and coupled with the fact
that they are robust and almost indestructible
are ideal for use by SFX depts or for hiring
"I have to say that the
Phantom has blown us away! This seems to
be the perfect solutions for us. We have a 1,300 seat
church with very strong HVAC and we needed quality
haze that didn't look like clouds of smoke being pushed
around by the airflow, as well as look good on camera.
Once the haze distributes in the room you can't see
movement at all!"
Church in Texas, USA
"The particulate size is certainly
very small indeed - I can clearly see individual glycol
or cracked oil smoke particles when exposed in a bright
beam close up, but not so with this machine. ...all
I can say is it performed superbly - absolutely
even, very fine haze throughout the venue.
Once I had finished plotting the show, I turned the
hazer off. 90 minutes later the level and coverage
of the haze had not changed at all. The machine used
less than 100ml of fluid over the 6 hours it was running.
So, highly recommended, and so much better
than all the alternatives I have used."
Customer in the film production industry
"Wow that haze really is tiny!
It will be great to see my laser without having to
use bucket loads of fluid and still see where you
are going. I want to eventually do corporate work
too, so this will be an advantage. Thanks
for this great product. Also, I'm impressed
with the packaging and kit of parts and the little
added touches. I had a look inside ... and was very
happy to see the quality of workmanship inside (I'm
a fitter and turner/engineering technician) it's clear
it ain't no mass produced, slapped together machine!
Count me as another satisfied customer
who will recomend people deal with you."
Laser Hire Company, Australia
"Thanks for the prompt delivery of the Phantom
Hazer. We are very pleased with the machine as it
far exceeds our expectations and the level of haze
produced is superb. I will recommend them
Rollerskating Arena Owner, UK
"After nearly 10 years of operating a laser-tag
site and using mostly Jem smoke machines, including
trying their so called 'long lasting' fluids I was
initially sceptical about the hang time and fluid
consumption claims for the Phantom Hazer, but a demo
of [the Phantom] confounded my scepticism. The haze
was still faintly visible after 6 hours, and had been
mostly dispersed by air movement through our building,
as a by product we managed to better seal our building
and decrease our heating costs!
The new Phantom Hazer is performing brilliantly.
So all in all I’m incredibly satisfied,
especially with the fluid consumption. We
have been using the Phantom Hazer for 18 months now
and have only just placed an order for additional
fluid. The 20 litres we purchased with the
machine has lasted us for the first 18 months.
Whilst the cheap running costs of this hazer are
much appreciated, it is the haze's long hang time
which is really great. As a result of the long hang
time the haze forms a consistent effect
throughout all of our arena. With the previous Jem
machines we had large variations the further you got
from the source. Also due to the low consumption,
maintenance and refilling cycles have been reduced
further saving time and money.
All in all I am very pleased to recommend
the Phantom Hazer, it's a great bit of kit
and the long warranty on the machine and its parts
are a testament to the build quality."
Laser Tag Arena Owner, UK
"The Phantom is INCREDIBLE.
It would have saved us so much heartache and trouble
had we just purchased this in the first place. It’s
worth every penny!"
House of Worship, Indiana USA
"We received the Phantom Hazer with time to
spare last week. Thank you so much. I’ve included
a before and after picture so you could see the difference
your hazer has made. Thank you! It is a difference
Church in Montana, USA
"The Phantom Hazer is awesome! Results in Wembley Arena have been amazing. Have converted some die hard DF50 fans into lovers of the Phantom! Don't think you could ask for better more even coverage. Can't fault the unit, its been one of the best investments I have ever made :-)"
Lighting Equipment hire company, UK
"Dude-that’s crazy!! [The church we visited] run their unit 3 minutes before each service and then shut it off. The effect lasts long enough for their service. I couldn’t believe how even the room got and how quickly it got there. It was incredible. When they first turned it on it was outputting like a cloud, but that soon settled and became even."
"Just wanted to confirm that I received the smoke machine the other day and I’m super impressed with the machine and your company’s turn-around time. I wasn’t sure what to expect working with an international company but your service was better than many local companies. The communication, turn around, and overall product have created an exceptional experience. Thank you for the great service."
"We got the Phantom up and running about 11.30 pm last Weds night after our rig build ...my goodness the results were incredible. We let the Phantom Hazer go for about 1 min and we powered our movers down about 1.30am and it was still looking great.
The [live TV music] show itself on Thursday was a brilliant success. The effect was the desired look and we are over the moon with the Phantom.
Thank you for all your help and advice ...we are thrilled with the results and service."
Television Equipment rental company, Ireland
"The output and haze quality are outstanding, and it convinced us instantly, and impressed the show director during the cast install.
The haze produced is finer than with any other machine, the stage looks sharper and the lighting is really enhanced, colors look brighter.
The fine haze leaves no residue on lighting equipment and is less harmful for singers and performers (and techs).
The Pea Soup fluid is affordable, and consumption is very low.
Personally, I was very impressed by the output and the quality of haze this little machine can produce, and my light technicians were thrilled to try it out.
I have given a report to our fleet technical director in Miami, and highly recommended to consider the Phantom for future purchases.
I must admit that it is the best hazer I have had the pleasure to work with."
Cruise Line Stage & Production Manager
"I am absolutely sick of dealing with crappy ...... hazers! I had a chance to use your Phantom Hazer on Doctor Who and it was a million times better."
Director of Photography
"We just purchased your Pea Soup Phantom Hazer and absolutely love it.
This is above and beyond what we expected on coverage and hang time.
Again…thanks so much for such an awesome product."
Church in Indiana, USA
"Absolutely utterly fantastic! We have just
wrapped on a BBC PG Woodhouse 6 part series and I've
used the Phantom Hazer for all the castle location
scenes. It is brilliant, with only
a few minutes haze production it hangs for ages allowing
us to shoot without needing to constantly top up the
"look", having this consistency was so useful
on a very busy schedule, Can't recommend it
Director of Photography, UK
"We purchased a Pea Soup Phantom Hazer to use in our music venue 4 1/2 years ago. This replaced a famous brand of hazer that was forever breaking down. The hazer used to go through approximately 5 litres of fluid each month, and we were finding it quite tough on our chests. Along with the Phantom we also ordered 20 litres of Phantom Hazer fluid. Amazingly, there's still 6 litres left. I figure that's 1,600 hours of usage from 14 litres of fluid! That works out at less than 9ml per hour, into a room with a volume of 375 cubic meters. When you told me that 4 bottles would probably last a decade, I thought you were joking, but really you weren't that far off!
The machine itself has performed flawlessly, never once breaking down ...it's paid for itself many times over in the savings on fluid alone, not to mention the hassle of repairs that we previously endured. And it is definitely much easier on our chests. The haze also shows up the lights much better, really makes them sparkle. I'd recommend one of these to anyone."
Live Music Venue, Aberdeen
"We have had our Phantom for about 4 months now and it is by far the greatest haze machine we have ever used!! And I have used 6 or 8 different ones over my career. Thank you again for making an amazing product!!!"
Church in TX
"We have used the Phantom Hazer for 1.5 years now and are very satisfied. We have used 1.2 liters of fluid, which is incredible :-)
No residue on our equipment at all !
Thanks for making these fantastic products :-)"
Technical Director for a rock band in Norway
"They [a large nightclub] love the Phamtom as it has solved all their fluid build-up issues! They are quite a demanding customer and for them to love a product is high praise indeed!"
AV Supplier / Installer, UK
"I had the chance today to test the Hazer for the first time …… I got the hang of it very very quickly which was wonderful for me.
To say I am impressed is an understatement. I ran it for a total of 15 minutes... The theatre was full with a lovely haze in short order, certainly in less time than my previous Martin hazers needed. I sat inside after turning the machine off, for fully 20 more minutes and the haze was just as present as when the machine was running. Lets just say I was gobsmacked, because the haze from the Martins was completely gone in 2 minutes.
If anyone asks me for my opinion I will have to tell them that in my opinion and with my experience, I have never had such a marvellous hazer … ever. Even the boss is happy because I am walking around with a smile instead of my usual scowl, and that’s saying something after 2 days of a heavy set up schedule for one show, followed by the [theatre's] 21st birthday celebration the next day, and many hours of work for our very small team.
I am looking forward to my next show that will require some haze. Fluid use has been miniscule to say the least and the local theatre group are impressed with it also.
Thank you so much for making what I consider to be the best most versatile hazer in the world."
Senior Technician, Theatre in New Zealand
"I working as Lighting Designer on a project with an organization that has recently purchased a few of your Phantom haze generators. I haven’t had the pleasure of working with your product before, and I must say that the quality, hang time and efficiency is second to none that I have seen. Cheers!"
Lighting Designer, Florida
"The hazer was fantastic, absolutely perfect for what we wanted, particularly the inside scenes to give the air 'texture'."
Director of photography
"We previously bought a Pea Soup Phantom Hazer for an exhibition of our artwork in Korea last year.
This artwork won the Award of Distinction at Ars Electronica, you can see the results here: https://www.aec.at/ai/en/light-barrier3/
The machine worked really well considering that enormous space and our very particular requirements for what the haze has to do."
Light Artist, South Korea
"The church was extremely happy with the quality of the haze compared to the Radiance unit they currently have. We ran the Phantom Hazer for around 25-30 minutes and it lasted for “three show worthy hours”."
AV Installer, USA
"We love our Phantom Hazer - it works beautifully. We have other hazers, but none can match the hang time and it looks a lot better than the others."
Special Effects Company, Puerto Rico
"Our Phantom Hazer is a joy - just brilliant"
