07 Feb Shorten Your Equipment List – And Save!
REALice is an easy-to-install measure that can help you shorten your equipment and End-of-Life (EOL) lists and save operations costs, CO2 emissions – without compromising ice quality.
What ice-making equipment will you need to replace in your arena in the next five years? The boiler? Holding tanks? A water softener?
What if we said you probably won’t need those anymore and can consider crossing them off your capital cost list? Move them to another facility, or put them up for sale on eBay?
Much Simpler Solution
You’ve got some or all of that equipment on your asset management list because that’s what you need to make good ice with hot water. It works, but the cost is high. And there’s a better way.
REALice is a much simpler solution. By treating the water by using pressure, you reduce the amount of hot water (and water heating and storing) your facility needs. And, because the REALice has an effect on the calc in the water, crystallizing it, you’ll get a much clearer sheet of ice without the need to soften the water.
Water Pressure Only
REALice does all this using just water pressure. No filters, no membranes, no chemicals — no electricity or natural gas, either. It uses water pressure to deaerate the water which also lowers the viscosity and increase the density of the water. That results in water that produces dense, clear, durable ice without having to heat it.
In addition to the avoided energy spend, lower compressor and boiler run times, and reduced CO2 emissions, the REALice-treated water never needs to be dumped. You can keep it for the next flood — or even overnight for use the next morning. Our operators tell us with the higher settings they’re now running at, their ice is creating less snow too, which means less water is needed when you flood.
The Future of Ice
REALice is the future of ice making. It’s good for the environment and good for your bottom line. It has a 15-year expected life, using nothing but pressure to give you dense, clear, durable ice. It will also make a big difference to the greenhouse gasses your facility is responsible for emitting, reducing CO2 emissions.
