27 Apr Why should you consider REALice for your arena?
We’ve thought about it and are happy to tell you our easy-to-understand Top 5 Reasons to consider REALice:
#1 – Make 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 will require 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 fewer greenhouse gases are emitted to the atmosphere.
#5 – Save on equipment use – with a reduced draw on compressors and boilers, your equipment will last longer, and less maintenance will be needed.
