The MTS (Manual Tower Snowgun) is a TechnoAlpin snow gun which is used in a fixed installation on a tower and can be manually operated. Its most distinctive features are its simplicity of handling and reliability. The MTS comes with a temperature sensor as standard with the facility of on-screen readouts. It is also possible to read various status messages, error messages and parameters on the display.
The snow gun software enables various snow quality settings and displays the number of nozzles which have to be opened in certain conditions. Settings can also be saved for start and stop temperatures. The compressor and electric control cabinet are located on the MTS near the base of the tower column so that they are accessible from the ground for ease of servicing.
TechnoAlpin fan guns are fitted with hard-wearing Quadrijet nozzles with ceramic inserts. The ceramic inserts guarantee a high level of durability and resistance even when used with aggressive water. The four-jet technology is used to optimize and equalize the spray action and therefore to guarantee top snow quality. TechnoAlpin has been using this advanced technology since 1992 and the heating system in the nozzle ring operates selectively, resulting in reduced energy consumption.
Nozzles can be turned on and of on all TechnoAlpin snow guns depending on the temperature. This keeps the quality of the snow consistently high. The WEDGE WIRE water filter insert, which is made of high-quality nickel chromium steel, is also integrated in the valve block to save space. It has no weld seams and is therefore extremely durable.
The snow guns produced by TechnoAlpin are fitted with an aluminum oil-free piston compressor with integrated cooling circuit. This system has been in use since 1999, allowing the snow guns to be positioned at any angle. The oil-free compressors made by Kaeser are also very environmentally friendly and ensure that no oil escapes into the environment through the snow production process. They operate at the same flow rate and yet they use less energy and do not need to be serviced annually. With no oil filters, trap cartridges, oil level monitors and stationary heating installations, this all adds up to a reduction in the annual running costs of a snowmaking system.
