How It Works – The Snowmaking Process
Inside the VIM 100 Snow Generator, water is exposed to a deep vacuum. The vacuum forces a small portion of the water to evaporate, while other parts of remaining water freeze, forming a water-snow mixture (slurry). The mixture is pumped from the snow generator to a snow separator (snow gun) that divides the water from the snow crystals. To maintain the deep vacuum in the snow generator, the water vapor is deposited on cold plates inside the snow generator freezer vessel. The plates are frequently defrosted to maintain continuous heat rejection within the vessel.
Two standard size containers (40ft. & 20ft.) housing the thermodynamic process and its main components: a freezer tank, agitator, vacuum pump and blower, cooling system, slurry pump, glycol system and control unit.
Water concentrator pole separating water from ice and distributing high quality snow to the ground. The snow gun includes a snow blower for improved snow discharge.
