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.
Our dedicated industrial refrigeration team designs, engineers, and manufactures custom systems to meet critical process requirements for production, processing, packaging, freezing, and storage applications in the Cold Storage, Food Processing, Biopharmaceuticals and Ice Rink industries.
Hillphoenix helps companies ensure the integrity of the cold supply chain with innovative traditional and sustainable refrigeration solutions. Our custom, centralized industrial refrigeration equipment cools millions of square feet of warehouse and distribution space throughout North America.
Our engineers have decades of experience solving the most difficult process cooling challenges in industrial refrigeration from food safety to employee comfort. Hillphoenix food processing solutions are designed to provide cost-effective, efficient systems for optimal processing-room environments.
Ice rinks across North America look to Hillphoenix to help “future-proof” their facilities by moving to industrial refrigeration solutions with natural refrigerants. For example, our Advansor Direct Transcritical CO2 system for ice rinks delivers improved ice quality and pump power savings of up to 90% compared to traditional systems.

AdaptaPak™ distributed refrigeration system was designed specifically to improve the performance of refrigeration installation in industrial applications, such as food & beverage processing, bio-pharmaceutical, cold storage and more.
Industrial Refrigeration systems have traditionally relied upon two refrigeration coolant technologies for decades. Ammonia has been the de facto standard for very large systems. Synthetic halocarbon refrigerants – in use since the 1920s – account for the rest. Regulations put in place to control the usage of both—ammonia for its safety issues and the synthetics for their ozone depletion and global warming concerns – have made the two coolant technologies extremely problematic.
In the mid-1990s, Hillphoenix introduced one of the first refrigeration technologies to reduce global warming emissions, and we continue to move sustainable refrigerants’ technologies from the lab to the marketplace.
The Hillphoenix industrial, CO2, cascade refrigeration system combines one of nature’s most abundant elements — CO2 — with a secondary coolant of choice (ammonia, glycol, HFC, etc.) in a parallel rack design that increases redundant capacity and refrigeration system availability.
