The SMI® Viking Snowtower™ has been developed to meet the needs of customers wanting fixed position, colder condition, and lower cost snowmaking.
The Viking uses a 30 foot (9 meter) tower to feed up to 80 gpm (302 lpm) to 12 water nozzles. Nucleation is provided by an on-board 5 hp (4Kw) compressor feeding two SMI® custom nucleator nozzles. The Viking is well packaged and simple to install and operate.
Some unique design characteristics of the Viking are the simple mounting base, and the seven sided head to avoid freeze ups and simplify service. The custom nucleation and filter system are easy to maintain. The jack for raising and lowering the Viking is safe and easy to operate. The valving system is a custom design that allows the extra water to simply adjust to the changing temperatures.
