TechnoAlpin: Improved performance through maintenance
At TechnoAlpin we lead the world in the supply of turnkey snowmaking systems. The company provides a one-stop service at every stage, from the planning of a system, the dimensioning of the machine rooms and the installation of the snow guns right through to the control system. This is particularly important in order to guarantee our customers a perfectly coordinated snowmaking system and thus optimum resource efficiency in snow generation. The multitude of hydraulic, mechanical and electronic components make snowmaking systems into complex technological systems in which all the individual parts need to work together in perfect harmony. As the systems are not used all year round, it is important that they can be put into operation without any problems. The machine rooms with pumps and compressors are thus the heart of every system and both pumps and compressors should be checked and maintained regularly.
Our competent, skilled TechnoAlpin After Sales Service team will help to carry out this maintenance. Our team is spread around the globe and operates from different service centers for Central Europe, Scandinavia, China and Eastern Europe. First of all, the entire machine room is inspected and subjected to an extensive condition analysis. This analysis is taken as a basis for planning any follow-up work. The pump positions are checked and, if necessary, realigned during the service inspections, and vibrations are measured. Thermal imaging cameras are used to detect “hot spots” on bearing pumps and motor pumps, and valves, filters and slide valves are checked. The function of the compressors is checked, and valves, oil and filters are changed with reference to the information provided by the manufacturer.
Our team has been receiving training from the manufacturers for many years in order to ensure that optimum maintenance can be offered for this sector. TechnoAlpin is an authorized service and repair point for Kaeser, Caprari and KSB, and an OEM partner for Danfoss and Evoqua. The company's service workshop for repairs and maintenance carries out the professional overhaul and repair of all snow system components under optimum conditions.
