In order to meet the high expectations of ski area operators and deliver a constant quality snow, not only TechnoAlpin will select the right snow producer for the right place, the best components for machine rooms, like pumps and compressors, but will also select the best pipes for the water supply. This careful selection will ensure the highest efficiency possible for the snowmaking system, season after season.
For the water supply of its snowmaking projects, TechnoAlpin has chosen the Alpinal cast iron pipes from the world leader of ductile pipes manufacturing, Saint Gobain PAM. The Alpinal pipes have been developed specifically for snowmaking water supply, taking into consideration the specific issues related to the design and construction of water systems in mountainous areas: terrain shapes, soil nature, water supply requirement in terms of flow and pressure etc.
High quality, durability, ease of installation and reliability are part of the features offered by the Alpinal product line. Lately Saint Gobain PAM has introduced new features from finishing coating to marking. The Alpinal line has now a new water-based acrylic finishing coating that improves further the durability of the pipes by bringing reinforce passive protection against corrosion.
This new blue coating is also a highly environmentally friendly solution because it does not contain any harmful substance (no bisphenol A, nor solvents). As for the marking, the pipes will have the PFA max indication and also a new marking for the Novo-Sit system, both on pipes and fittings to make the laying out even easier. Indeed, Alpinal pipes are easy to install thanks to the sliding socket joint system, and the job does not require any welding work on site, making for fast, smooth and flexible installation.
With Alpinal products, TechnoAlpin offers the most reliable, adapted and efficient solution for the water supply of snowmaking installations, in order to ensure the best snow conditions on ski slopes.
