After using the REALice system for the 2017/2018 season and getting fantastic ice quality ratings by the officials, Rogers Arena, home of the Vancouver Canucks, decided to buy the system and continue to make their ice with REALice.
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.
