29 Apr Top 5 REAsons for REALice
Why should you put REALice in your arena?
Here are the Top 5 Reasons to consider REALice:
#1 – Make consistently better ice — REALice lets you make clear, strong and resilient ice. REALice drains the micro air bubbles from the water, resulting in a denser sheet of ice. Did you know: ice made with REALice-treated water is 46% stronger than ice made with hot water? See the ice hardness test
#2 – Save fuel by not heating the resurfacing water. Resurfacing with unheated water will let you reduce your natural gas usage by an average of 79%. See FortisBC large scale pilot.
#3 – Save electricity – because REALice-treated water has different properties, it freezes faster than regular water and requires resetting the brine temperature higher — by 3-5°F. You’ll make great ice and SAVE 10-12% of your facility’s electric consumption. See Town of Caledon, ON project findings.
#4 – Save CO2 emissions – reducing your energy consumption means less greenhouse gases are emitted to the atmosphere.
#5 – Save on equipment use – with reduced draw on compressors and boilers, your equipment will last longer, and less maintenance will be needed.
