Ice Rink CO2 System
CO2 is today’s best solution. This is a future-proof solution – meaning this choice will last well into the future.
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.
CO2 is an entirely nontoxic, environmentally friendly refrigerant with excellent heat-transfer capabilities that meets every international refrigerant requirement for today and tomorrow.
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.
- Improve ice quality.
- Nontoxic and environmentally safe.
- Cost less than traditional refrigerants.
- Pump power savings up to 90%.
- Excess heat is a heat source for entire facility.
- Excellent heat transfer capabilities.
• Decrease Pump Energy Use
Modern technology Advansor CO2 transcritical cooling systems decrease pump energy (power) requirements up to 90% compared to traditional installations.
• 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.
• 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.

“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% to 40% when all the results are in.”
