Artificial Snow 2-2

The Manufacturing Process The production of artificial snow requires a series of devices that can move water and air up the mountain, combine them with a nucleating material, and spray them into the air as small droplets. Typically, the system is installed during the summer months and operated at night after the slopes have closed. Installation of the system 1 Artificial snow making requires an entire system to be installed on the mountain slope. This system includes a series of water pipes, electric cables, pumps, and compressors in addition to the snow making machines. First, plans showing the layout of the system are drawn. Then the water pipes and cables are laid in long trenches traversing the entire slope. The trenches must be dug significantly deep so water does not freeze during the winter months. At various points along the water line, valves and hoses are installed to bring water to the surface. Hay bales are placed around the […]

Artificial Snow 1-2

Artificial snow is small particles of ice that are used to increase the amount of snow available for winter sports such as skiing or snow boarding. It is produced by a machine that uses a high-pressure pump to spray a mist of water into the cold air. The water droplets subsequently crystallize to form fake snow. The first commercially successful machines were developed in the 1950s and improvements in technology have steadily been introduced. With the increase in the popularity of winter sports, the artificial snow market is expected to show significant growth. Background The machines that produce artificial snow are designed to mimic the way that natural snow is made. In nature, snowflakes are formed when the temperature falls below 32° F (0° C). Atmospheric water then condenses on particles in the air and crystallizes. This action produces snowflakes that have a variety of sizes and shapes. In a snow machine, water is first mixed with […]

Focusun New System for Snowmaking

Using tap water as raw material, through compression refrigeration, combined with excellent Focusun snow clutch technology, Focusun snowmaker can produce artificial snow with a high degree of simulation of natural snow. If the device is placed 3-5 meters above the ground, you can achieve the effects of the snow flying in the sky. Different from the traditional man-made snow, this kind of artificial snow feels cold, very similar to natural snow, which can create an effect of light flying sense. Even in the hot summer in the south area, artificial snow created by Focusun machine can provide snow scene for the hot springs, snow-themed bar, cold steam rooms, discotheques, cafes, snow huts, animals venues, large gatherings, films and television shows, etc. where people can enjoy the snow fun from the art. Focusun artificial snow falling machine structure is compacted, modular designed, convenient to install. Just need to connect the power, w […]

Optimize Chillers with an Automatic Entering Condenser Water Temperature Reset Strategy

A chilled water plant’s annual operating cost is a major contributor to a facility budget. Typical chilled water plants consist of multiple chillers, cooling towers, chilled water pumps, condenser water pumps, plate heat exchangers and water treatment equipment. The chilled water is generated in the central plant and then transported through a piping network to cooling coils (air handlers) or to point of end-use in processes. Facility directors and energy managers are always chasing multiple goals – satisfying all the customers, maintaining a high level of reliability and minimizing energy spends with varying demand and weather. Therefore, many modern plants employ a good chiller optimization package such as Hudson Technologies’ SMARTenergy OPS® in conjunction with Building Automation Systems (BAS) to optimize the chiller plants.   Chiller Plant Efficiency Driven by Cooling Tower Management In a water-cooled chiller plant, co […]

PROPER REFRIGERATION TEMPERATURES AND WHY THEY MATTER

Commercial refrigeration units are a business investment. Since these units cost thousands of dollars, keeping them in working order is a necessity to avoid costly and time-consuming replacements and new installations. In order to keep a commercial refrigerator running as it should, it’s important to implement regular maintenance. Many business owners can perform some of these tasks themselves, while others are more complicated and require the help of a professional. In order to ensure a unit works as it should, it should be installed correctly and placed in such a way that any fans aren’t covered. Improper installation or placement can lead to failure, even with regular maintenance. At least every three months, the unit should be visually inspected to see if there are any visible issues. Are there puddles of water inside or around the unit? Is there a buildup of ice, or is a fan not spinning properly? If so, any of these issues will ne […]

Water to Ice: How an Ice Machine Works

There was a time when a chilled drink and refrigerated food storage were the domain of cold climates and winter days. Since Boston businessman Frederick Tudor decided in 1806 to sell blocks of ice pulled from the surfaces of New England ponds, large parts of the world have come to rely on ice as a year-round staple and dining requirement. Over a couple of centuries and some years since then, we’ve moved from fickle, hard-to-store, and sometimes dirty natural ice to cubes, flakes, and nuggets produced by ice machines. Though the process is a little less organic now, at its heart it’s no less simple than combining cold and water. Still, some steps in making ice are still a mystery even to those who have been dealing with a commercial ice maker for years. So, let’s look inside the machinery and inside the process. The Refrigeration System in a Commercial Ice Machine The heart of every commercial ice machine is a refrigeration system simila […]
