SMI Air Plants

Organizing air systems for optimal sizes and efficiencies is a big challenge in the ski industry as these air plants can be very large energy consumers. Selecting the proper size machines, air discharge pressures and starters/controls is important in providing the best system for your resort.

From small stationary 40 KW units up to larger 600 KW machines should be analyzed and considered when planning the new or retrofit air plant. Secondary along with medium voltages for motors and starters will be analyzed and reviewed. Automatic starting, stopping and sequencing can all be smoothly and easily controlled using SMI’s SmartSnow™ software and control.
