To achieve operational goals, the Glace Bay Miners Forum in Nova Scotia upgraded its ice rink with a custom-designed ammonia chiller system.

The skid-mounted water-cooled ammonia chiller package included three reciprocating compressors, one Vahterus plate and shell evaporator with integrated surge drum, one condenser, one high-pressure receiver, three oil separators, three coolers and one oil cooling pump. Supplied by Berg Chilling Systems, the ammonia ice-rink chiller also included an ammonia leak sensor and controller for added safety and security of the system.
