Having worked with artificially frozen ice for over 30 years, it really feels like the REALice System has revolutionized ice production. We have obtained a tool and a method of working that enables us to create improved ice for our users. The ice is considerably harder, which means that it is more durable and provides improved skating. People even come up to us spontaneously and wonder what we have done to the ice to make it so good, and that’s nice. Additionally, we can lay ice by adding water that’s not as hot and freezes faster, and we can use a higher ice temperature while running, saving on energy, money, and compressors. Another beneficial effect is that the ice has become clearer, something appreciated not least by our sponsors.
So far ice has been great. It freezes instantly and the quality looks a lot better (much clearer than the untreated water)
"The Zamboni is spreading 120-140°F hot water onto the ice. This causes an instant 30 ton load for a 10-minute duration. The use of REALice eliminates such."
The quality of the ice has been tremendous.
I think we have a winner!
"We are thrilled with the ice."
The ice feels solid. It's got foundation.
"The clarity is way better than advertised! I am VERY happy with the ice."
Everyone is happy with the ice.
The fruit's in the pudding - we're more efficient and not heating the water for the resurfacing.
