Ice Rink CO2 System

 
 

HCFC-22 is frequently used as a refrigerant in ice rinks. Starting on January 1, 2020, U.S. production and import of HCFC-22 will end, so ice rinks across North America will be looking for opportunities to “future proof” their facilities by moving to natural refrigerants.

The Advansor Direct Transcritical CO2 system for ice rinks delivers superior performance — improved ice quality and pump power savings of up to 90% — compared to traditional systems. It’s also environmentally friendly. CO2 is an entirely nontoxic, environmentally safe refrigerant with excellent heat-transfer capabilities. Plus, it’s a fraction of the price of traditional refrigerants.

The Hillphoenix Advansor system provides a much higher coefficient of performance (COP) than that of ammonia-calcium chloride systems. And easily accessible heat recovery can be a heating source for the entire facility including indoor areas, locker rooms, and utility water.

Compact Design and Construction.

The system is designed to maximize performance while using a minimum amount of space. The compact design and construction is achieved from years of experience designing, building and optimizing refrigeration systems.

Decrease Pump Energy Use

Modern technology Advansor CO2 transcritical cooling systems decrease pump energy (power) requirements up to 90% compared to traditional installations.

Virtually Vibration-Free

Virtually vibration-free installations—compressors are fitted with vibration dampers on installation plates welded to solid, rigid base frames.

Improve Ice Quality

Available frequency converters provide compressor capacity control that improves temperature control and ice quality.

More Efficient Cooling System & Monitoring

More efficient direct cooling system design and comprehensive monitoring.

“The ice is excellent — consistent and smooth. It’s just what our players need to maximize their skills.”

“We looked at all the potential non-Freon refrigerant solutions, but sooner or later, they all were likely to be affected by environmental concerns. We decided CO2 had the most benefits. We’re anticipating energy savings of 25 percent to 40 percent when all the results are in.”

“Hillphoenix was there 24-7 for the complete installation working side by side with our team. They were very helpful in the installation of the entire system.”
