27' Guyed Tower Kit for Primus Wind Turbines
The 27 Ft. (8.3 m) Tower Kit includes a tower clamp/guy wire assembly and all necessary hardware and fasteners to erect a 27 Ft. tilt-up tower using Schedule 40 steel pipe or tubing with an outside diameter of 1.875".
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.
No Gin Pole ( for 27 Ft. only)
No Cement Base
Lower wire set 160 ft. (49 m) pre-cut
Base staples (2)
3/8 in. x 1 ½ in. Bolts (2)
3/8 in. Locknut (2)
Cable thimbles (4)
Cable clamps (8)
Pipe Needed (from suppliers)
24 ft (7.2 m) length for tower
6 ft (1.8 m) length for tower base
1-7/8 Steel Tubing
1 7/8 in. (47.5 mm) steel tubing
For pipe tube specifications please consider the wind speed resistance as the main mitigation factor in a relation tower height ( 27 Ft.) tube thickness and max win speed the tower will stand with no major impact on it.
.065 can stand up to 90mph (40 m/s) for a 27 Ft. tower
.090 can stand up to 100mph (44 m/s) for a 27 Ft. tower
.145 can stand up to 120mph (53 m/s) for a 27 Ft. tower
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.
