On Dry Ice

Des Champs offers two ice rink dehumidification systems. The Wringer®3000 and Wringer®3000 Plus (with energy recovery) desiccant dehumidifiers deliver dry air to maintain ice hardness, limit fogging and reduce structural decay while minimizing energy costs. Both systems can have up to three operational modes: occupied mode, which uses 100-percent recirculation air; normal occupied or practice mode, using minimum ventilation air; and event mode, which uses 100 percent of ASHRAE/IBC recommended ventilation air. Features include a state-of-the-art DDC control system for positive rink dewpoint control and supplemental winter heating with indirect-fired gas, hot water, steam or electric.

Humidity Control

The Arid-Ice unit by Concepts & Designs, Inc. improves year-round operation of indoor ice arenas requiring humidity control to stop several problems, including fog, mold growth and dripping. Because the ice sheet cools the building, moisture-laden air from outdoors condenses on anything below the dewpoint. Arid-Ice provides the driest, most comfortable, most efficient, most economical solution to ice arena humidity. Models are available for any combination of moisture load and ventilation requirement.
