...the mobile ice rink system from the pioneer.


The technology to build a skating rink is known since the early 20th century and until the beginning of the 80's this method has not changed in principle. At that time, an ice rink was almost exclusively cooled directly with ammonia. In the process ammonia evaporates within an iron piping system which lies within the concrete slab of an ice rink. However, this method has the crucial disadvantage that the entire concrete base has to be frozen. Therefore, more energy is needed which has to be provided by a chiller with higher performance. Such a chiller is correspondingly expensive and the operating costs are higher. Furthermore, an ammonia system always has an increased operational risk and the necessary security measures generate more costs.
