TechnoAlpin: Regular service promotes energy efficiency
TechnoAlpin guarantees optimum resource efficiency in snow generation with perfectly coordinated snowmaking systems. Relying on the world market leader brings peace of mind when it comes to the smooth operation of systems and perfect compatibility of all the individual parts and components.
Snowmaking systems are complex technological systems which are only used seasonally. It is therefore important that they can be put into operation without any problems at the beginning of the season. The pump and compressor stations are the heart of every system and consist of a large number of hydraulic, mechanical and electronic components. If faults occur here, the entire system may come to a standstill. In order to avoid major damage to pumping stations, it is essential to have a regular inspection and maintenance routine in place for pumps and compressors.
Professional repairs in optimum surroundings
Pump repairs should only be carried out by qualified professionals. TechnoAlpin has therefore trained its own team of pump service engineers, consisting of about 15 employees. They are spread around the globe and operate from different service centers for Central Europe, Scandinavia, China and Eastern Europe. The entire machine room is first checked by trained TechnoAlpin personnel in an extensive assessment of its condition. This analysis is taken as a basis for planning any follow-up work which may be needed. The pump positions are checked and, if necessary, realigned during the service, and vibrations are measured. Thermal imaging cameras are used to detect “hot spots” on bearing pumps and motor pumps, and checks are carried out on valves, filtersand slide valves. The compressors are inspected to ensure that they are in working order, and valves, oil and filters are changed with reference to the information provided by the relevant manufacturer.
TechnoAlpin has been receiving training from the manufacturers for many years and is therefore an authorized service and repair point for Kaeser, Caprari and KSB as well as an OEM partner for Danfoss and Evoqua. Any major repairs or services falling due are carried out in the service workshop at the TechnoAlpin headquarters in Bolzano where the equipment and conditions are of optimal standard for the professional overhaul of pumps, mobile pumps, valves, snow guns, motors and fittings. This service point enables TechnoAlpin to offer excellent repair services.
