TF10 puts in an impressive performance Down Under
TechnoAlpin launched the new TF10 fan gun in the spring. With 24 Quadrijet nozzles and eight nucleators, the TF10 is one of the most powerful and most efficient machines on the market. During the past winter season ski resorts in Australia and New Zealand have had the opportunity to test the TF10 in advance.
A demo version of the TF10 was put to work in the Australian ski resort of Perisher, for example. The feedback from snow operations manager John Palmer was short and sweet - "WOW!!!!" was his only comment.
TechnoAlpin has had a long-standing business relationship with the Mt. Hotham ski resort which is also in the state of Victoria in the south-west of Australia. On account of the difficult snow conditions at borderline temperatures and at high levels of air humidity, the opinion of the snow operations team at Mt. Hotham is particularly important to the development department. The resort was an obvious choice, therefore, to test the TF10. And the feedback from Tony Kewish, who at 68 is the old-timer among snow operations managers, was entirely positive. "The TF10 is really impressive", he said, "It doesn't ice over, not even when it's very humid. We experienced great quality and production volume here".
Finally, the TF10 was also tested in Falls Creek (AUS). Slope manager Geoff Serensen confirmed the phenomenal snow output, saying, "The flow rates from the TF10 were double that of a T40 operating about 100 meters away and the quality of snow was absolutely fantastic".
The snow operations managers in the New Zealand ski resort of "The Remarkables" had the privilege of experiencing the TF10 at work. "The TF10 was a pleasure to use", they said, "the standout points for us are how quietly it runs, the impressive amount of quality snow it produces and its excellent performance in marginal temperatures, which is essential in New Zealand. We also liked the new digital display and user-friendliness. In our view the TF10 is a fantastic addition to the existing product range".
