Your Ice Surface is Your Reputation

Planning new facilities or facility renovations with proven refrigeration innovations is critical to success in the early years and for long term system operation. ARC will work with you to plan your skating facility from top to bottom.

Catering to those demanding the highest standards, we work with each client to select the most appropriate rink chilling system, considering both the operational and financial needs.

Existing facilities select ARC for refrigeration upgrades to reduce operating costs, while also reaping the benefits in the form of incentives from their utility companies.

Many rink owners select ARC as their planned maintenance service provider to keep their facilities in top condition and respond quickly when service needs arise.

ARC has serviced more than 100 ice skating facilities throughout the Northeast and is an active member of NEISMA (North East Ice Skating Managers Association).

College Hockey Arena

Client’s Need/Challange

Private College in New England looking to upgrade sub floor cooling for their Ice Arena as it was leaking due to age, resulting in performance inconsistencies, turned to ARC to solicit available options.


Scope of Work

American Refrigeration reviewed the current installation that utilized a brine heat transfer solution, carried through plastic piping, connected to carbon steel headers. While the installation was adequate, the mechanical connections present multiple leak points and require regular maintenance.

ARC proposed independent, completely enclosed, fusion-welded underfloor cooling and anti-freezing loops that would be tied directly to High-Density Polyethylene Headers. This installation would then be upgraded to replace the brine solution with glycol.


Tangible Results for the Client

As a result of the client’s extended season, the project kick-off was delayed, and therefore the window to upgrade the Ice Rink was shortened, adding to the already aggressive schedule. Despite the tight deadline and challenging piping run, ARC was able to satisfy the customer’s needs, turning over a perfect ice surface for the upcoming season.
