Eos 8: Optimum snowmaking performance with minimal energy consumption
After unveiling our new Eos snow lance to the public for the first time at Interalpin over a year ago, we immediately received extremely positive feedback on Demaclenko’s new generation of lances.
The new Eos, which is now being produced for the first time with up to eight regulating steps, boasts a number of impressive technical innovations without dispensing with the tried-and-tested highlights of the previous model. For example, the new nucleators and nozzles with their stainless steel inserts enable the product to perform significantly better when confronted with any external influences, making the snow lance even more resistant than before. The biggest change to its predecessor is surely the new feature of eight regulating steps, which is available as both a fully automatic and manual model. The numerous configuration options mean that the product can be tailored to our clients’ requirements even better than before as well as offering a high degree of flexibility and a number of possible applications. While the previous model was sometimes only able to produce a reduced amount of snow the new snow lance is very powerful, especially during rapid fluctuations in temperature thanks to the 8 steps regulation. A further important technical feature is the excellent water flow rate, which can now reach a flow rate of up to 6,1 l/s. The new lance head was produced with a smaller volume and surface area, which in turn has made it less vulnerable to wind and weather. This also means that the formation of ice on the head in the most adverse weather conditions for snowmaking is now a thing of the past.
The extremely positive values plotted on the optimized production curve illustrate how the snow lance boasts the best ratio between snow quality and energy consumption.
