Remove your Ice Plant Ammonia?

Mirkwood is providing ventilation upgrades to ammonia ice plants, in numerous communities, in Northern BC. This newly developed criteria, is based on the current and ongoing discussions with WorksafeBC and Technical Safety BC.

Ice plants can be replaced or retrofitted to use considerably smaller refrigerant charges and non-ammonia refrigerant. Both of which result in reduced risk to workers.  Mirkwood’s recommended system is primarily heat reclaim, rather than primarily heat rejection. Ammonia heat rejection equipment can be converted for reuse in a larger percentage of cases.

Two projects which are currently in the preliminary design phase, incorporate ground source geothermal. A curling rink completed in this configuration will reduce the utility cost by more than 50%. Overall lifecycle cost savings are even larger. Operation cost reductions are primarily due to heat reclaim, less specialized service technicians and increased staffing flexibility for plant operators. 

For more information on either of these options please contact us.
