John J Macinnes Student Ice Arena

Michigan Tech was faced with an aging direct, R-22 refrigeration system.  Leaks in the floor piping were causing mounting maintenance and repair costs and threatening the hockey season.  B32 assisted the University in evaluating options for renovation or replacing the existing ice system.

After a thorough process of evaluating the alternatives, the University selected an ammonia based, indirect refrigeration system. The ice system is designed to provide the high performance required for their notable Division I hockey program and maximizing energy efficiency through heat recovery for dehumidification, pool water heat and subfloor heating systems.

B32 provided key construction inspection services to assure the installation was performed properly.
