HazeMaster is Le Maitre's most advanced and powerful hazer yet. With a massive output capacity and rugged construction, it has been designed every step of the way for the road. Combined with award winning haze technology, producing pure, fine, consistent and long-lasting haze, it really is a class act.
Le Maitre have taken all their experience from HazeMaster’s predecessors, the renowned Stadium Hazer and the MVS Hazer, and designed a completely new machine with a host of new features and benefits. Le Maitre’s acquired knowledge and original investments have enabled them to produce a much more competitively priced unit, despite using higher quality, longer lasting parts.
The design is sleek and modern, with a robust steel casing, underneath which lies a true masterpiece of engineering. The combination of an industrial grade air-pump, a 2-stage heating process and a microprocessor controller, produce an output so powerful that the HazeMaster can convert up to 750cc of fluid per hour. (Fluid consumption can be set from 10cc/hr = 500hrs/5L, to 750cc/hr = 6.5hrs/5L).
Furthermore whilst most other haze fluids are only 5-10% active ingredient, Le Maitre's PureHaze Fluid is almost 90% active ingredient, meaning it puts 10x more haze in the air than other hazers! (See Le Maitre Haze Benefits PDF in Documents tab).
Despite the huge output, the high efficiency design results in the power consumption of the HazeMaster being just 800W.
The HazeMaster has only a 3 to 4 minute pre-heat time, much less than with many other hazers. Operation is also extremely quiet.
A high power, built-in fan is capable of moving up to 130 cbm/hr thus reducing the need for external fans. The inclusion of adjustable directional fan louvers which can be set from 30-80 degrees, not only control the haze direction but also play an important role in eliminating the condensation of haze on output.
The user panel is highly intuitive with easy to manipulate controls and a 3-digit LED digital display. The haze output and fan velocity can be adjusted in 2% increments over a 0-99% display range giving the operator ultimate control, and a manual override mode allows the operator to make these adjustments at the machine even while in DMX mode.
The maintenance benefits of the new HazeMaster have been improved to meet the needs of the touring community. The cool-down of the heat exchanger is rapid - just 2-3 minutes, compared to 2 to 3 hours in some competitive models which use a block system. The heat exchanger is easy and inexpensive to clean and replace.
The HazeMaster, as with all Le Maitre hazers, incorporates their patented S.T.A.R technology, which uses a two-stage low mass heat exchanger technique to produce a fine, pure and consistent haze that hangs in the air for a long period of time. The result is some of the best haze for lighting operators, providing high definition to aerial beams, adding significantly to the impact and drama of lighting and laser rigs.
Le Maitre's PureHaze Fluid is sugar and water-based with 90% active ingredient and completely safe to use on live stage performances. Le Maitre has participated in several reports on equipment guidelines, calibration and health effects on the use of theatrical smoke and haze as prepared by bodies including ESTA and Environ and copies of these reports can be found on the Equity Website here.
