TechnoAlpin’s range is expanding with the new T40!
Every year, TechnoAlpin invests over a million Euros in research and development. Its R&D department, which has now increased to 12 members of staff, has developed a wide range of products and patents. Now the team, led by Product Manager Juris Panzani, has scored another major success with the company's latest fan gun - the T40. The T40 is an upgrade of the successful M18. Tried and trusted elements such as Quadrijet technology are again featured in the T40, however many other items have been updated and optimized, resulting in the latest generation fan gun which is convincing with its perfectly coordinating components.
Perfectly coordinated components
The T40 is a perfect combination of tried and trusted technology and trend-setting innovation. TechnoAlpin has also equipped its latest product with wear-resistant Quadrijet nozzles and ceramic inserts. The nozzle support, however, has been upgraded and is now made of cast aluminum. This enables improved water throughput and facilitates removal of heating elements. As with all TechnoAlpin snow generators since 1999, the T40 also features an oil-free compressor, which means that the machine is low-maintenance and environmentally-friendly. The water filter has been upgraded and is now manufactured from nickel chromium steel. The Wedge Wire filter ensures maximum strength and easy cleaning.
The new control panel is extremely user-friendly with a color display and LEDs. The T40 can also be operated using the exceptionally easy to use, optional Bluetooth wireless remote control. Access to the swivel lever, height adjustment facility and valve block with filter on the same side of the machine enhances user-friendliness, as do the lightweight PE covers which can be removed quickly and easily.
Mobility and versatility
Although not obvious at first sight but all the more significant, the dimensions and weight have been reduced. With a total height of 2.45 m, width of 2.2 m and length of 2.6 m, the T40 automatic mobile is ultra compact. The machine's weight has been reduced to 600 kg, which also facilitates easy handling and means that the machine can be transported by air. The T40 is available as an arm-mounted device with standard lengths of 10 m and 6 m, and also as a 1.6 m-tall tower-mounted version. It can be converted into a light, mobile lift-mounted machine too. The front section of the two-part carriage which has been especially designed for the T40, can be easily dismounted and the machine can be directly docked and fixed onto the lift carriage. The jacks and rear part of the carriage can then be removed. The snow gun can be connected, moved into operating position and the complete carriage simply taken away with the groomer.
