The cooling system is critical in Ice rinks and arenas hosting them. The hardness of the ice is important to get the right speed, traction and experience from e.g. hockey players, figure skater or school children that spend the day on the rink.
The “climate” around the Ice Rink is affected by many factors but so, if the HVACR-system fails it will cause bad ice and a bad experience both for the “user” and the audience.
The energy consumption in ice rinks is high and the cooling aggregates are an essential part of the cost. Ensuring that the system runs optimal with ClimaCheck and don’t fail will save a lot of money and income losses connected to breakdowns.
In Sweden, the project “Stoppsladd” is identifying and presenting the energy consumption of different categories of ice rinks. ClimaCheck is part of this project in order to optimise and analyse the cooling aggregates.
Case studies ice rinks:
- Älta ishall – Kyla + Värmepumpar nr 3 2012
The project at Älta ishall have lowered their energy consumption with almost 40%. The more energy efficient system have also resulted in a much better business overall:
