TechnoAlpin: Alpinal pipes, a guarantee of excellence for snowmaking
To ensure the optimal and efficient operation of the snowmaking equipment supplied to its customers, TechnoAlpin gives the utmost care to the design of its equipment, snow guns, valves, software, as well as the selection of other components of the systems which must present the highest quality standards. This is particularly the case for one of the most important elements of a snowmaking system: The network of pipes for the water. The pipe network distributes water from the pump station to the snow guns, so it performs a crucial function and must be very efficient and easy to install.
For many years, TechnoAlpin has chosen to work with the products of the leader of ductile iron in Europe, Saint-Gobain PAM, for its snowmaking system: The Alpinal line. Alpinal pipes and fittings are produced by the German factory of Saint-Gobain PAM, located in Saarbrücken Brebach. The group manufactures over 700,000 tons of ductile iron pipes in Europe. The close cooperation between Saint-Gobain and TechnoAlpin makes it possible to offer the most advanced products to meet the increasingly demanding design needs of snowmaking installations, particularly in terms of accessories: sleeves, fittings, clamping rings.
This is the case, for example, with the connection sleeve, or U-piece, an essential component that makes it possible to answer several problems in the design of a water system for snowmaking:
