To ensure the best possible snow quality and efficient snow production, the temperature of snowmaking water is critical. CoolTech towers have been designed by the company to ensure the optimum water temperature, particularly at the beginning of the season or when the outside temperature conditions are not the most favourable. This significantly increases the performance of snow guns and the energy efficiency of the snowmaking installation.
The towers are designed to operate in the most extreme conditions to supply water to the right temperature. They are primarily stationary installations; however, to provide even more flexibility for ski area operators, TechnoAlpin is also offering a mobile cooling tower model for when it is neither possible nor necessary to build a stationary cooling unit.
The CoolTech mobile tower is plug & play, as well as completely autonomous, since it embarks a submersible pump for its water supply and a high-pressure pump to feed the snow guns connected with the cooled down water.
