Tapping points

Pits and overground hydrants for use in the mountains

Pits and overground hydrants for use in the mountains
  • Pits: When designing the tapping points, DEMACLENKO pays particular attention to the question of installation and maintenance, but also to safety and work convenience. DEMACLENKO offers pits of concrete (series C) or fibreglass reinforced plastic (series Z). Both types are ideal for use in the snowmaking sector. As we prefabricate the parts, they can be installed on the construction site quickly and easily, and are suitable for all types of ground. The pits are specially shaped to allow pleasant working, as there is very generous space inside. There are double hatches in the pits, so that one can be used exclusively for access, while the second, thanks to its flange connection, can accommodate any type of snowmaker – from mobile versions to lances and even tower-mounted fan guns. This means that separate foundations are no longer required to fix snowmakers in a permanent location. In addition, the pits contain all the connections for water, air, electricity and control. For this reason, pits from DEMACLENKO offer a fantastic level of convenience and flexibility.
  • Spur line: Spur lines specially developed by DEMACLENKO with flexible high-pressure hoses designed in-house allow the pits to be located at precisely the right spot, and absorb movements of the cast iron pipes.
  • Looped version: To do away with the use of branch tees underground, the power cable is looped through the snow pit and clamped to a rail system (this way, the terminal can be directly connected).
  • Concrete pit C150: Concrete pit available in different versions (with/without base, 1/2 sections, reinforced/lightweight concrete). Suitable for transport by helicopte
  • GFRP pit Z160.(Fiberglass): The GFRP pit can be equipped to suit individual needs, is fully preassembled, has a very low weight. This low weight enables it to be installed in difficult terrain (e.g. transport by helicopter). Pits of 10 mm (½“)- thick glass fibre-reinforced plastic (GFRP). Water-tight and free from condensation. Tried and tested for 25 years.
Connection possibilities for water, power and communications.
