The Raptor Tower with its galvanized articulating boom transforms the Diablo fan into a highly productive, easy to use tower design. The Raptor blends the warm weather performance and throw of a traditional fixed fan tower, with the safety and convenience of a carriage-mounted fan.The HKD Diablo is the workhorse in our fan line up. The Diablo is engineered for simplicity and efficiency and is capable of water flow up to 250 GPM with projection exceeding 225 feet. Its unique central nozzle design provides a smooth performance curve with infinite water flow and snow quality settings. The Diablo is big production snowmaking at its best.
The Diablo Fan is available in three configurations: manual, semi-automatic, or fully automatic when paired with the KLIK auto hydrant and a network connection.
The Diablo Fan design is modular and interchangeable between our three styles of supports: the carriage, fixed tower with workbasket, and articulating boom (Raptor).
The Raptor's electric jack raises the fan gun from ground level to a height of twenty feet in ninety seconds. At this elevation, the Raptor will produce 60% more snow, at a given temperature, as compared to a carriage mounted fan gun. The Raptor's oscillator is programmable and capable of broadcasting snow with 300° of rotation.
The Raptor eliminates the risk of climbing ladders to reach the workbasket of fan towers. Simply turn the switch; lower the fan, and perform the required service at ground level. The Raptor is high performance and safety wrapped into one.
