LE Snow: Oil-lubricated piston compressor for snow making, 1.5-15 kW / 2-20 hp


Customer benefits

  • High reliability – The LE-Snow can operate without interruption in snow-making applications. A specially designed air inlet and outlet system allows trouble-free operation without compressor freeze-up in extremely low ambient temperatures. This also avoids ingress of snow-moisture into the compression system during periods of heavy snow fall. Direct driven operation by an IP55 electric motor gives an extended lifetime.
  • Minimum maintenance – Proven industrial components enable trouble-free operation with low maintenance requirements. The minimum of oil carryover is also beneficial to the environment.
  • High efficiency – Piston compressors are the most economical way to produce compressed air for smaller air demands, thanks to minimum specific energy required, low maintenance, long lifetime and easy usage.

tlas Copco LE-Snow piston compressors are designed specifically for the snow-making industry. The LE-Snow provides reliable, continuous operation with minimum maintenance. The use of high-quality materials and an innovative design make the units suitable for operation in the extreme conditions encountered at the ski slope.
