Northland has successfully removed out Shell and Tube Chiller. Piping is being done for the new Plate and Frame Chiller scheuled for delivery this week. This is a picture of our old Shell and Tube Chiller that has successfully kept out ice frozen since the opening of Northland in 1973.
Northland would like to inform our customers that our new Chiller from Alfa Laval has not been delivered yet from Chicago. As soon as it is here we will know when the rink will open we are sorry for any inconvenience. Below is the type that has been built for us replacing the old green monster we had. New technology, more efficient and needs less of a charge.
While we are closed waiting on the new Chiller we have installed a second new compressor that we have had for 6 months, Installing a new 400 gallon Water tank for our Evaporative Condenser and new Brine make up tank and Stand. We hope these improvements will help us run and keep better ice. Thank you for your understanding..!!
We have 3 welding crews and 2 pipe fitters working on installing the new stainless steel piping and valves to compressors and evaporative condenser from chiller. Shooting for ice on 4th.
The new chiller is in place and the pipe fitting has started..!!!
Our new Alfa Laval plate and frame chiller arrived today. Now 3 or 4 days of welding and pipe fitting before we spark it up and start freezing some water...
