Rink piping systems
There are two basic systems of cooling technology for ice rinks:
Direct cooling provided for permanent ice rinks
There is only one cooling circuit. The refrigerants ammonia or carbon dioxid is directly transported via steel tubes into a concrete slab.
Indirect cooling provided for portable and permanent ice rinks
The indirect cooling system consists of two circuits. A cooling circuit and a transport circuit are connected by a heat exchanger.
refrigerant: R 404A
coolant (transport media): glycol
Technologies of indirect cooling:
- mina PE-Xa-tube system (provided for permanent and portable ice rinks)
- EPDM-Mats (provided for portable ice rinks)
- Aluminium plates (provided for portable ice rinks)
- IceGrid system (provided only for ice rinks)
We will be glad to assist you to choose the appropriate ice resurfacing machine.
