45' Guyed Tower Kit for Primus Wind Turbines
Air Guyed 45’ Tower Kit
This tower kit is designed specifically for the Primus Windpower “AIR” 30 and 40 wind turbines. Two level structure, anchored with guy wire allows the use of lightweight tubing while providing plenty or resistance. The AIR tower kit includes a simple yet effective elbow/tee for its base. Combined with a short length of tubing this type of base eliminates the need for a concrete pad, base plate and a swivel for the base of the tower.
Anchors and pipe or tubing are not furnished with the kit so you have the flexibility to use the most appropriate components for the installation.
This kit includes galvanized steel cable, not stainless steel cable.
It comes with a Gin Pole kit to help errect the wind turbine (Set Up Kit) ;
Gin Pole kit does not include any tubing for the Gin Pole Mast;
You can buy together with turbine mast tubing from metal store
Tower mast must be 1.5 in. schedule 40 steel tubing
No Winching required
No Cement Base if not needed

For pipe tube specifications please consider the wind speed resistance as the main mitigation factor in a relation tower height ( 45 Ft.) tube thickness and max win speed the tower will stand with no major impact on it.
.065 inch (1.65 mm) can stand up to 70mph for a 45 Ft. tower
.090 inch (2.3 mm) can stand up to 80mph for a 27 Ft. tower; Schedule 20
.140 inch (3.6 mm) can stand up to 900mph for a 27 Ft. tower;Schedule 40
Air Wind Turbine Sitting and Positioning
The AIR wind turbine is designed to mount on tubing or pipe with a nominal 1.875 – 1.900 inch outside diameter. This dimension enables constructing a tower from a range of readily available materials including 1 1/2 inch Schedule 40 steel pipe and 2 inch SS-20 galvanized fence tubing (0.090 inch wall thickness). Under no circumstances should plastic pipe be used to construct a tower. The manufacturer has few tower designed in different range as 27 ft (8.3 m) Tower, 29 ft (8.8 m) Tower and 45 ft (13.7 m) Tower
The minimum recommended tower height is 25 ft (7.6 m) on open ground or 20 ft (6 m) above nearby obstructions. Try to locate the wind turbine in the “cleanest” turbulent free air as possible. Turbulence will reduce the efficiency of the wind turbine and may accelerate wear on rotating components.
