Welcoming REALice to Washington Again!!!
Jamie Huscroft, the operations manager for the Sno-King Ice Arena in Renton, WA today confirmed an order for a REALice cold water resurfacing system for this two pad facility. The installation, which is expected before the beginning of June, will mark the first for Renton and the Sno-King organization, and the second installation of REALice in the State of Washington. The first REALice System was installed in December, 2017 at Tacoma Twin Rinks in Tacoma, WA.
REALice makes great ice, even with hard water.
We hear it over and over again... one of the biggest barriers ice makers have to making great ice is hard water. Hard water results in slow ice. In gritty ice. In cloudy ice.
In fact, it's pretty hard to make great ice with hard water.
REALice can help!
The City of Camrose is the first city in Alberta to switch over all three of their ice sheets to the REALice system. This year they will begin flooding all of their ice pads with unheated water to make great ice, save energy, and GHG (Greenhouse Gas) emissions.
The city started making ice at the Max McLean Arena with REALice in 2017. The advanced hydro dynamics technology drains micro air bubbles from the resurfacing water. The technology has helped arena operators make hard and fast ice, while saving them energy. Given the results and positive experience with REALice, Camrose is rolling out the technology to equip their performance Twin pad arena.
Case study at Lamb Weston/Meijer proves energy-saving and environmentally friendly Cooling Water treatment attributes of the IVG Cooling Tower concept.
Lamb Weston/Meijer is one of the world’s largest companies for frozen potato products and dried potato flakes. In 2014, the Bergen op Zoom branch started with a large investment project which doubled the capacity of this location with a new production line, and the existing production line was be renovated. In 2016, the cooling water supply of the new production line was also taken care of. Luc Wuyts was involved in the project as a maintenance engineer after he had convinced the management of chemical free water treatment. A year later Lamb Weston/Meijer and the supplier evaluate.

The REALice story under 3 minutes!
REALice has launched an animated video to help our potential customers see how the REALice System works, the energy and associated costs it will save ice arenas — and how the resulting quality of the ice will not be compromised.
If you saw the ice at the Oilfields Regional Arena in Black Diamond, Alberta, you would never imagine the ice plant producing such great ice is what most ice makers would consider underpowered or “sub-par”.
But it is — and has been long before Les Quinton became the Town’s Parks and Recreation Manager back in 1997. Their sub-par mechanical room is one of the reasons why Quinton has been on a quest to make the ORA as energy efficient as possible. He’s been way ahead of the curve in transforming the ice barn from an energy-hogging black hole to an energy producer, logging two months of net-zero consumption in 2017.
As we look back on 2017, we have a great deal to be proud of, are grateful for -- and look forward to a busy 2018. With more than 500 ice pads using REALice-treated water to make their ice worldwide now, we're getting more word-of-mouth recommendations and keep hearing amazing stories from our customers of how REALice is making a difference in their arenas they would never have imagined. Here are some highlights from REALice USA.
