Every winter lover needs snow to fulfil his white dream of happiness. So, if you are doing winter sports or love to watch professional ski athletes, there has to be at least one simple condition: a lot of light, powdery, cold snow. But as weather conditions are not always predictable and world cup locations are not always in the coldest areas, you sometimes have to bring artificial snow to the locations. Companies like Supersnow from Poland developed machines and special technologies to produce snow even if the temperatures don’t feel like winter at all. KITO ER2 electric chain hoist is an essential part of these systems to lift the snow guns easily and spread the snow widely.
The Polish company Supersnow produces snow, even if winter is not there. Snow guns, jibs and complete snowmaking systems let ski resorts look perfectly white not only in winter. The snow machines work all across the world, since the production of technical snow is possible with temperatures of up to + 30°C! Supersnow is the only Polish company and one of the five in the world, which deals with the design, construction and service of complete snowmaking systems.
Efficient snow production
Snow production is literally a cold and tough business. You have to work with high-quality technology to ensure that products are durable, efficient and modern, guaranteeing the right protection of the environment and thus meeting all ecological standards. One of the newest products of Supersnow is the E400 jib, which was designed after numerous detailed studies to increase the efficiency of snow production. This jib is a completely new, simple and compact product.
How does it work?
Rafal Topolski, CEO of Supersnow, explains: “The idea behind the new snow gun was to design it very light, so it can be lifted up and increases snow delivery. Placing the jib on a high level means the flight duration of ejected water drops extends, which turns into better utilization of weather conditions.” And this idea worked out well using KITO ER2 electric chain hoist as a main part of the product construction.
KITO ER2 electric chain hoist was the best decision for Supersnow in terms of safety, longevity and maintenance. The ER2 is characterized by its high product spectrum, offering load capacities from 125 kg up to 20 t. The hoist is so versatile and functional, it can be used almost in all sectors, where you need a robust and solid constructed hoist. Through pioneering inverter technology or 24-V contactor control it is able to perform its tasks with ease and under the highest security levels.
Supersnow decided to work with KITO ER2 because it is made for aggressive conditions. As the only manufacturer in the world, KITO nickel-plates its load chains. This makes the hoist extremely strong and wear-resistant followed by a long life and reduced operating costs.
Highest quality = highest fun level
The cooperation of KITO EUROPE and Supersnow results in a well-designed snow gun that serves snow the best way possible. It is a combination of modern technology with the highest quality materials. This is ideal for those who are looking for innovative solutions that maximize the use of snow guns and slope space. KITO ER2 electric chain hoist allows the guns to be raised and adjusted smoothly to a maximum height of 4 m above ground level, which eliminates the need to transport it from one place to the next, thus increasing its efficiency. Lifting the snow gun also guarantees high safety on the slope, because it is almost impossible for the skiers to get in direct contact with the device.
So, let’s go skiing! The more snow, the more fun on the slope!
