A completely new nozzle valve system was designed for the TR10. The central valve block is replaced by single valves which are individually controlled. Highly innovative and perfectly integrated, each nozzle block on the nozzle ring is controlled by its own valve. More valves bring more advantages.
Resource efficiency: The loss of water while operating the various valves is prevented through the use of compressed air to drain the nozzles. The excess water is flushed out and integrated directly into the air stream and then converted into snow.
Operational safety: The innovative nozzle valve design completely eliminates the need for the central valve block and front discharge. This prevents the formation of ice in front of the machine and greatly increases operational safety.
Technical reliability: Thanks to the intelligent valve circuit, the valves can replace each other in the event of a failure, ensuring that the required number of nozzles is always open.
Air cooling on the machine is key to improving snowmaking performance in marginal conditions. The air cooler on the TR10 has been redesigned and improved. It has an unprecedented cooling capacity due to the significant increase of the cooling surface, thereby enabling the production of perfect quality snow even in difficult temperature conditions. The TR10 is particularly impressive at marginal temperatures, achieving unsurpassed levels of snow output.
Perfect snow quality starts with the smallest parts of a snow producer. The optimum air and water mixture is a decisive factor. All the nucleators on the TR10 are fitted with two ruby inserts as standard, seated in the hole through which the correct amount of water is allowed into the compressed air. These ruby inserts boast maximum wear resistance, even in the presence of abrasive water and high operating pressures. They enable the constant production of high-quality snow over many years and significantly reduce the need to replace nucleators.
The correct snowmaking position is vital in order to produce snow efficiently. The TR10 has a completely new mechanism which automatically takes the snow producer – even with the mobile model – to the correct vertical snowmaking position when it starts. The TR10 will automatically move to the correct working position and return to the starting position after the end of snowmaking operations, making it less susceptible to damage when not in use.
The aim of this change was not only to improve the snow output but also to simplify the work of the snowmaking crews. Both the starting and the working position of the TR10 can be individually preset. The pivot settings of the fan gun have been improved also and enable more precision in the placement of the snow on the slope.
The TR10 comes with the largest touchscreen on the market. The touch functions have been specifically integrated into the machine control system and are therefore particularly user-friendly. The touch display has been painstakingly adapted to the requirements of the snowmaking crews and boasts impressive and unique features.
Optimum readability: The incredible brightness level and automatic dimmer function allow perfect legibility, even in strong sunlight and at night. The screen is also still easy to read at very steep angles.
Functional even in extreme situations: The display is still fully operational at -30°C. The larger spaces between the individual touch elements allow precise control even when wearing touch gloves.
The innovative and functional design of the TR10 is a masterpiece of engineering and has been specially constructed for the US market. The material of the cover is more robust to better withstand extreme challenges in the field. In just a few easy steps th nozzle ring cover can be removed and all essential parts of the machine are immediatly accessible. Ease of maintenance is increased and transport safety is improved by the integration of the most fragile parts in the turbine housing.
