Snow Making machine.
Instructions for making snow.
Requirements for operation:
Air Compressor with a minimum rating of 3 CFM @ 90 PSI.
Air hose (with 1/4 inch Industrial Style, Quick Connect fitting).
Valved garden hose connector.
Tap water, at 40-60 PSI.
No pressure washer required. Great for use in marginal snowmaking weather,
where you might not be able to make snow with a pressure washer design.
How the Snowmaker works:
Works by mixing low pressure water and compressed air. When air is allowed to rapidly expand,
there is a sudden decrease in temperature (known as the Joule-Thomson Effect). The conditions at
the nozzle are such that the mist is able to immediately freeze, resulting in snow.
Operating the Snowmaker:
First step is to check if the weather conditions are right for snowmaking.
You will need to attach your Snowmaker to something secure (like a tripod, ladder, etc).
Connect your garden hose to a water spigot and to the garden hose connection on your snowmaker.
Use a valved hose connector on the snowmaker end, for best results.
Connect the air hose from your compressor to the snowmaker, using the quick connect fitting.
Close the water and turn on your compressor.
You should now have just air coming out of the nozzle.
Open the water slowly, until you have a steady spray of water and air coming out the nozzle.
Adjust the water to get the steadiest stream possible.
If the weather conditions are right for snowmaking, you should now be making snow!
