PME-E Open Circuit Cooling Tower for a Snowmaking Plant in Austria

Snowmaking Plants

Cooling towers in snowmaking plants are generally used for water pre-cooling for snow cannons: high water flows, high performance and low noise levels are the most frequent requirements. A limited visual impact is often a plus.

Installation Context

Installation Context Water pre-cooling for snow making applications.


Requirements continuity of operation, efficiency, low visual impact, high water flow rates.

Cooling Technologies for Snow Cannons at a Glance

Cooling technologies for artificial snowmaking systems (usually evaporative cooling towers) are usually a “hinge” between the supply water basin and the snow cannons.

Some requirements are made by plant managers and engineering firms:

  • high performance,
  • outgoing water close to zero degrees,
  • operational continuity at low or very low temperatures.

Simplicity of installation and maintenance and the durability of the system are also often appreciated.
