The HKD Halo is an innovative multi-nozzle fan gun design that thrives in marginal temperatures and low water pressure environments. The Halo makes heavenly snow in all conditions.
Snow quality and simplicity is the core of the Halo. Its modular design is plug and play with current generation HKD fans. Simply remove the Diablo Module and plug in the Halo - it’s a one-person job. The HKD software recognizes the technology change and makes the necessary adjustment to the snowgun performance curves. It’s like having two fan guns in one.
The HKD Halo has 5 flows ranging from 15 to 150 GPM and can be operated with water pressure as low as 120 PSI. The Halo is available in manual, semi-auto or fully automatic when paired with the Minion Hydrant actuator and a network connection.
The Halo Fan design is modular and interchangeable between our three styles of supports: the articulating boom (Raptor), fixed tower with workbasket, and the carriage.
The Halo Carriage is galvanized and has three wheels and a tow bar for flexible transport. It can also be moved using its lift hooks and the blade of a snowcat. The Halo Carriage is equipped with 3 extendable jacks for safe leveling and stability during snow production.
The Raptor Tower with its galvanized articulating boom transforms the Halo 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 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 is high performance and safety wrapped into one.
The HKD Halo Tower is galvanized, easy to rotate and has 12" wide ladder rungs for safer climbing. The workbasket is fully enclosed with a railing and its access door can be closed to create a safer working environment. The control panel and compressor are conveniently located at the bottom of the tower and within reach of the snowmaker to prevent unnecessary climbing.
