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.

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.
December 20th, 2017 – Today marks the 100th anniversary of the National Hockey League. To help celebrate the NHL’s first century, an outdoor game was held at Ottawa’s TD Place Stadium this past Saturday night as a part of its Winter Classics series. There, under the bright lights of the transformed football stadium, the Montreal Canadiens played the Ottawa Senators in the Scotiabank NHL 100 Classic, on two-inch thick ice made with REALice-treated water.
