Utah Olympic Oval
Year Completed: 2020
Scope: Known as the fastest track in the world, LA Roser assisted with installation and continued service to this world-class ice rink.
Louis A. Roser Company prolonged the life of this world record holding facility by replacing aging shell-and-tube heat exchangers. To ensure the long-term integrity of the rink’s piping, the cooling brine was flushed and replaced with new monitoring and chemical treatment capabilities. To reduce electrical costs, a new compressor with variable frequency drive (VFD) was installed. A full flow balance of the Calcium Chloride Brine was performed.
Those entrusted with maintaining the “fastest ice on earth” rely on Louis A. Roser company to continue to service their equipment on a regular basis.
Salt Lake City, Utah
Year Completed: 2019
Scope: The Engineering team at Louis A. Roser Company was asked to evaluate the equipment at Maverik center and offer suggestions to run more efficiently and prolong the life of the facility, both with and without the ice floor in place.
Our design was approved, and we worked with Lewis Young Robertson and Lux Energy to remove some of the aging equipment and install:
- A new Ammonia Compressor with a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD)
- New Evaporative Condenser and Cooling Towers
- Ammonia to Brine HX for the ice floor
- New Brine Pumps and associated piping
- Ammonia to Glycol HX for arena comfort cooling
The retrofit went well, it works wonderfully, and looks amazing. Best of all, the soft ice issues are resolved, and they have reduced electrical costs.
Eccles Ice Center
Year Completed: 2018
Scope: The Louis A. Roser Company prolonged the life of this amazing facility by replacing the aged shell-and-tube heat exchanger. We also installed a new condenser and brine pump. The photos highlight the craftsmanship of our insulation team. We enjoy working with the Eccles Ice Center and are proud supports of their annual “Spice on Ice” event.
