Trecan’s Triple Bottom Line

Technical Leadership

Trecan is the industry leader in Snowmelter design and manufacture, worldwide.

Built to Last: Trecan Snowmelters have a typical lifespan of about 25 years. Some have been in operation for 40 years. These machines are more rugged, easier to service, and easier to keep clean than competing designs.

Superior Design: Trecan has the most thermally efficient design in the industry, with burner fuel conversion efficiency in the order of 98%, due to its low discharge flue gas temperature. Their distinctive design also provides better equipment security and ease of access for maintenance.

Remote Communications: Trecan is the only snowmelter manufacturer that provides a Remote Communications package. It allows both the Snowmelter owner and Trecan to remotely monitor its operation, and troubleshoot if necessary.


More Cost-Effective Snow Management: Trecan Snowmelters can offer snow contractors and facility managers substantial hourly savings over trucking snow. They can earn an attractive financial return on their snow removal operations, and pass on cost savings.

Superior Environmental Performance

Thermal Efficiency: Because the Trecan submerged combustion process for melting snow more energy efficient than competing designs, it generates lower CO2 per unit of melted snow.

Environmental Compliance: Trecan also uses the most environmentally compliant components: in a recent independent engineering study carried out for a major US airport authority, the burner
and engines used in the Trecan Snowmelter were deemed Best Available Control Technology Design for NOx emissions.

Other Environmental Benefits: Our design also results in lower noise and less waste heat, and avoids excessive unburned carbon and carbon monoxide.
