Pillar 1 of resource efficiency: Maximum performance meets minimum consumption
20% LESS POWER CONSUMPTION THAN RIVAL SYSTEMS
An independent study has shown that compared with similar models made by our rivals, the latest DEMACLENKO 4.0 series models perform outstandingly by using as much as 20% less energy while delivering the same performance and throughput. It’s the result of technology that has been improved and perfected over the years.
DOUBLING AND TRIPLING SNOW OUTPUT
DEMACLENKO has succeeded in raising the efficiency bar significantly through numerous technical innovations over the past 20 years of research and development. This is illustrated by the ESR, which stands for energy-snow ratio. It’s measured in kWh/m³ and describes how much energy is used to produce one cubic yard of snow. The lower the figure, the better the efficiency.
For example, a fan gun in the year 2000 achieved an ESR of 1.45 kWh/m³ at a wet bulb temperature of –4°C, whereas the Titan 4.0 operates at 0.7 kWh/m³. This means that nowadays you can produce twice as much snow with the same energy input. Energy efficiency has therefore increased by 100% . Improvements in our lances have been even more impressive: the EOS 4.0 produces three times more snow than older models from 15 years ago, which means an efficiency increase of 200%.
REDUCE AND MAKE THE MOST OF ENERGY CONSUMPTION
Here’s an actual example of how DEMACLENKO’s latest snow guns utilize energy innovatively and efficiently: the new Ventus 4.0 Blizzard fan gun has an integrated heat exchanger in its nozzle ring that heats the ring and cools the compressed air at the same time. And another example, this time relating to lances: most lances require a 4 kW air compressor, whereas DEMACLENKO’s lances get by with a 1.5 kW one.
TOP PERFORMANCE EVEN AT MARGINAL TEMPERATURES AND LOW PRESSURE
Performance at marginal temperatures also shows clearly that DEMACLENKO snow guns always get the best out of any climatic conditions, and not only when the temperature is cold. They also achieve excellent results when water pressure is low, which saves a lot of energy at the pump station.
EFFICIENT SNOW SPREADING
The way the machines spread snow has been designed not only for long range but also so that it’s spread evenly over the entire range. Combined with pivot mode, this guarantees perfect snow distribution, which makes grooming easier and reduces the amount of energy that snow groomers use.
