#1 Innovative nozzle ring
Fewer disruptions in the airflow to reduce energy use. The bird wing-inspired aerodynamic construction delivers a more powerful airflow with less turbulence.
The compact design reduces the gun’s heating requirements, which allows for faster and automatically regulated heating, thereby lowering the fan gun’s electricity use.
#2 Hardened nozzles
Reliability and durability. The 80 nozzles in the MAKALU fan gun are machined from hardened stainless steel (over 900 HV), meaning high abrasion resistance, a long service life and
easy maintenance.
#3 Flow-Reg system
Linear regulation of the snow production process. The FLOW-REG technology automatically aligns the fan gun’s snowmaking process with the outdoor temperature to the nearest tenth of a degree, which improves production performance and guarantees consistent snow quality.
